Week Five of the 5% Summer Challenge
Monday, August 03, 2020
We are half way through the challenge! So far I’ve lost 5.5 pounds...half of my 5%! I will say, my commitment is faltering this go-round. For one, we’ve had a lot of family visiting this summer, and some birthday celebrations...mine included! So, aside for a couple of “allowed” days off, I think I’ve done fairly well. Our DD and her husband will be flying in from AZ this weekend, and staying w us for a week. Our 3 sons, and their wives will also come for part or all of their visit. So this weekend will really be a challenge!
This week, we are supposed to track not only our exercise minutes, but also our hours of sleep. The idea is that our bodies need sufficient sleep to function at its best. I struggle with this as I have chronic insomnia. I consider myself lucky if I get six hours/night! We are also supposed to stretch 10 min/day...which I love doing!
Today, we are patiently waiting for our friend, Isaias. He (she?) is supposed to arrive overnight, bringing torrential winds, rain, and sleeplessness (for me). We are hunkered in. The pups will be crated next to our chairs for their safety (in case of tornado or damaging wind). And hopefully, the power will stay on. For those of you in Isaias’ path, be safe!
