April Fools Day

Sunday, April 01, 2012

The first thing I read this morning was the article about the US changing how they measure a pound. I was outraged that we as a country would change things just to fix statistics. I mean really if you weigh 167 pounds under the current system you would weigh 152 under the new system. I told my husband about this and he chuckled. He said you know it's April Fools Day right? So I finally read the last line of the article, Spark People got me. It's a relief to know that the US isn't that dumb!

My C25K program is going well. Today I'm going to do day 3 of week 2. Yesterday I did day 2 of week 2 and was very successful. I even had one mile that was under 12 minutes! I signed up for the Chase Corporate Challenge on May 31 and want to be able to run the whole thing. I know I can do it!

Reading my current goals, I realize I need to update my goals. Most of them are still valid, but there are a couple that I need to update. I need to walk 12,000 steps 6/7 days, and drink 80 oz of water daily. I have to add a couple of goals too. Pay attention to my eating, lose 3 pounds a month, and successfully complete the C25K program. I have tried the C25K program in the past but this time am determined to complete it!

Time to head out for my walk/run!
