I feel so proud of myself! As you know, I haven't truly exercised one lick since this all started. Terrible, isn't it? I mean, I don't sit around on the couch all day...but I also don't belong to a gym or own any workout equipment.
But this week the girls and I started something new! We began stretching every day together. I cannot believe how tight my muscles are and how UN flexible I have become. Sweetheart is 9 and she also cannot believe how much she used to be able to do when she was in gymnastics compared to now.
Truly, it has felt so good to stretch every day that I can feel it in my muscles LONG after we are done. I think it's actually a good thing to do before you start really exercising hard (which I DO plan to do!) because I feel like I'm waking my muscles up.
And after only 3 days we could already tell a difference. How cool is that?
OK--I did pretty well on drinking iced tea more than coke. I did better staying away from the sweets. I didn't stay away from them all the time--but I did better. Probably because we have very few groceries in the house! Ahem.
I have done really well at getting dressed and fixed up every morning. I have my nails done (by me) and put on make-up each day. It feels nice to look nicer. My grey t-shirts still call to me and one day I actually put one of my favorites on. But then I caught sight of myself in the mirror and I went and changed.
OH! I did 2 new things! I started using my new bread machine. It has been so nice.
OK--your turn. What did you try new this week? How did you do on your goals? Are you going to make any new ones this week? Post on your blog and then come sign up on Mr. Linky.
Have a great Friday everyone!
