My First Wordless Wednesday: Mammoth Hot Springs

Weigh-In Wednesday

Hello 21 Days Sisters!

I started my challenge yesterday- challenging myself to work out at least 30 minutes a day and to take a daily vitamin. Well, I worked out yesterday and today, woo! Today was not fun either- I did it in the evening and I find exercise to be more difficult in the evenings.

And how about my vitamins? That's the easy part of this challenge, right? WELL. I had this lovely bottle of vitamins sitting in my medicine cabinet, and when I went to go get it last night it was EXPIRED. In March! Yep, that's how long it's been, haha. Today there was tons of drama with work, so I'll make it to the store to buy some more vitamins tomorrow. So it will be 20 (19? I'm unclear about when this started?) days of vitamins. I supposed I can forgive myself.

My weight was down A LOT this week! down from 255.2 to 251.6 in less than a week (since I got home from my cruise)! I don't know if my metabolism finally decided to kick in or what! I was so shocked that I got on the scale four times to make sure it was right! Hopefully the loss will stick and I will be down even more last week! :)

Twenty One

No, I'm not quite that young, though I may look it (I have a story aout that for another day). The twenty one days challenge (look at the button over there! -->)is another challenge put up by the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. These wise women say that it takes twenty one days to create habits (I've heard a few other numbers as well, but 21 sounds good), so we're challenging ourselves to commit to being healthier for twenty one days.

In this challenge, you can choose what to commit to. I've decided to commit to thirty minutes of exercise daily. BOOOOORING! I know, I know, but for real- it's good for you (unfortunately). The idea is that after 21 days you'll be all "I'm used to this! This is easy!" but I'm thinking I'm actually going to be counting down the days....

I'm also committing to taking a daily multivitamin. I know, boring again but I have a very nice, moderately expensive bottle of multivitamins sitting in my cabinet that go un-taken because their owner is muy forgetful.

So after twenty one days, I'll be more fit and full of essential vitamins and minerals, right? Something like that. I did work out today, but I don't think it technically starts until tomorrow. I'll be checking in weekly on Wednesdays and updating on my progress.

Until then...I must go unearth my vitamins.
