On a more positive note...I've been increasing my treadmill intensity and I'm really excited with my progress :) I'm jogging at 4.4 mph which is crazy fast for me. If you are super fit and reading this, please try not to choke on your laughter. And, I didn't mention it in the first post, but part of this challenge is also to increase my overall health.
Years and years ago I bought 8 Weeks to Optimal Health by Dr. Weil. And every year (sometimes multiple times) I try to do the program. I have never made it past week 4. I'm giving it another attempt since I'm sure having Optimal Health will undoubtedly include losing these pesky 20 pounds! *Totally book related stuff here* I've been good about eating the broccoli a few times a week and I'm taking my daily vitamins (If you knew me, you'd know this is a big thing). I haven't gotten rid of all the 'bad' food yet - there are still crackers and pretzels and granola bars in my pantry. In the words of Bob: Baby steps...
Oh, and as for that Halloween candy (I'm totally eating a piece right now, doh!). I figured crafting with it means that less will find it's way into my mouth:
Yep, it's a candy corn tree. Well, where do you think candy corn comes from?!?
