Day 18 of 40/40 Challenge: Making the Best of my Time

Wednesday, April 06, 2011



Today I hit the track. I wasn't prepared AT ALL! I had to take my kids to Boy and Girl Scouts Meeting at my church. They are in there for 1.5 hours. I had on flat shoes and a skirt and a long all-weather coat. I did not have my sneakers. I didn't even have socks on.

I decided to go down to the local community college around the corner and just walk the track. (I could have walked anywhere; but I like to walk the track because I'll know just how far I went.) That was an EXCELLENT idea because I hadn't exercised yet today and I would have had to exercise late tonight if I hadn't. It wasn't the most comfortable walk with the shoes I had on. And I probably looked CRAZY to just about everyout out there. BUT....I'm soooo glad I walked and made the best of my time!

Day 18 of 40/40 Challenge.... DONE!!!

    Yay for taking the opportunity to walk today. I strapped Riley in her stroller and we went for a walk as well, she enjoys it just as much as I do. It was a little warmer than I had expected for the morning to have started out so cool though.

It's late. I'm tired. I don't have a picture. I don't have a story. LOL.

I rode the stationary bike at my Mom's house today for 47 minutes.

Day 16 of 40/40 Challenge: Easy, Breezy, Beautiful...

Monday, April 04, 2011



It was beautiful outside today. FINALLY a Spring Day... Well, actually it was more summer-like than Spring. Temps reached 78 degrees here in the DMV area! BEAUTIFUL!

I couldn't wait to get outside. So after my daughter finished her homework, we headed out for a walk. She was on her scooter and I was trying to keep up with her. We had a good chat while also picking up some things we needed at the drug store.

So, Day 16 of 40/40 Challenge was a breeze today! Just outside with my little one having a nice walk and enjoying God's green earth!

Days 14 and 15 of 40/40 Challenge: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Sunday, April 03, 2011

The Good: I'm STILL on a mission. I'm STILL reaching for my goals. I'm getting stronger and stronger every day. I'm CONSISTENTLY exercising. I'm feeling good. I'm staying in my calorie range. I exercised for 48 minutes today and had a wonderful time and burned a lot of calories! Day 15 of 40/40 Challenge.... DONE!

The Bad: Day 14 of 40/40 Challenge....NOT done! I didn't exercise yesterday. My 40 day streak that I've been working on has been broken. I got in very late last night. I was so tired, but I still didn't make that an excuse for myself. I put my workout clothes on and my shoes and I sat on the edge of my bed for a moment. Then I rested my head for a moment. Then I was.....sleep...for more than a moment. LOL. I fell seriously asleep!...fully dressed...lights on...television blaring. When I woke up it was TODAY (Day 15). I only had a little while before it was going to be Day 15 anyway. So, I guess I failed my challenge, huh? NOT! My challenge is mainly about developing CONSISTENCY in exercising and I STILL have that. I'm still doing that. So... WINNING! LOL (Ooops..didn't mean to put that "good" in my "bad" section. LOL)

The Ugly: My knee is swelling a little. Its having some issues. So, I made the decision after my 5K training today to end the walk/run training. I'm leaving the 5K Your Way Walk/Jog sparkteam. I MAY, instead, do a walk-only program. But I don't know how challenging that will be for me. I already know I can walk a 5K. I guess the challenge would be completing it under a certain time. I'll check out the 5K Your Way Walk sparkteam program and see what it entails. So, its a little disappointing that I'm still not a runner but I'm still hopeful...Maybe when I'm done my 40/40 Challenge and am not exercising every single day, my body will be more receptive to it. Still WINNING!

(Thanks Charlie Sheen for the catch-word of the year. LOL)

  I noted with interest that your Sunday blog paralleled our message in church today to stay on course despite set backs. I will take that as a double confirmation...LOL...Keep the faith and know that the battle is given to the one who endures...Will say a prayer for your knee...Be gentle on yourself...:)

    You made me giggle. You were obviously tired. Wow! I hope your knee recovers and BRAVO on your consistency.

    You've developed something very important - CONSISTENCY.
I'm very proud of you!

Day 13 of 40/40 Challenge: The Best Workout EVER!

Friday, April 01, 2011



WoooWeeee!!!! That was an AWESOME workout!! Let me tell you!!! It's the only workout I could have done at 10:30 pm with such enthusiasm!!

I know I waited until the VERY LAST MINUTE today to get my 40 minutes of exercise in, but I DID IT!!.... and guess what......I DIDN'T WANT TO STOP!!! Now THAT'S a workout!! Anytime you don't want to stop working out, then you're on to something sho'nuff...and I was a sweaty mess...but ooooohhhh so BLESSED.

I got in late from a long day...put on my workout clothes and went down in the basement with my mp3 player. I hadn't really listened to my mp3 player in a while...not since finishing my half marathon training a long WHILE back so I had forgotten what songs I put on there. Once I started listening, it was ON!!! Oh my goodness! LOL

I did a mixture of jumping rope (if the song was just the right beat) and praise dancing for about 55 mins...I went a little over because I didn't want to stop. But, I remembered that I have to teach class in the morning, get my blog done tonight, log in my cardio and get my NICE bath. So, I stopped. But, I didn't want to. LOL



Somebody say... "aint no party like a Holy Ghost party cuz a Holy Ghost party don't stop!" Hey!!!! (Those of you who know what I'm talking about, KNOW what I'm talking about! LOL)

God is good and worthy to be praised!! HALLELUJAH!



Day 13 of 40/40 Challenge......DONE! (Now it's 5 minutes from Day 14... LOL)
