Day 18

Get up at six (check); Don't hit snooze (check); "move" for 10 minutes (This morning I ran from my home to the grocery store down the street. Round trip that's a total of 1.4 miles. Then stopped off at the church parking lot for some mountain climbers, power jacks, and pushups, so...check); eat breakfast (check). I've done everything I said I was going to do this morning; now I just need to finish the day with some pushups and I'll have hit every goal I set for today.

Little goals, this may be the key to success. Pair that with the positive attitude and support of people around you and you have a winning formula. I'm keeping it simple. Nothing good will come from overwhelming yourself. You'll only shut down and resort to bad habits. We're making good habits here.

I've created a new page! Over there ----->
It covers some of the small non-fitness related goals I have. Little things like taking steps to learn Spanish, bake some breads, and become smarter. I have a language learning app I'm using for Spanish. I'll be using the Bread Baker's Apprentice for breads (I've made a few before from here and they've been awesome).

Then I'm going to use Khan Academy to get better at math. Math has always been something that was a bit mysterious and challenging for me so I feel it's perfect to try and conquer now. I'm starting with fractions (adding them, muliplying them, etc) and I hope to work my way up to more and more challenging stuff. We'll see.

I'm feeling good. This is good. :)


  1. Much better outlook/plan today! Me likey! :)

  2. Yay! So excited for you! Great job today! You've mentioned you wanted to improve your brain a little bit and I wanted to recommend I'm sure you've seen the commercials for it. My husband and I use it and it truly has helped, especially with my sub-par math skills. I think they are offering a free trial. Check it out, you might really like it!

  3. You are doing great! I only wish I could run over a mile. You were totally on point today. Keep up the good work.
