Day 140 - Update

Hey there kiddos!  After Zumba last night I decided to make myself accountable to possibly 400 of my closest FB friends.  You all know this of course, because you are reading this as a result of that post.  I refocused this blog on Christmas evening (if you go back far enough you'll see knitting posts) because I was fed up with how much I had let myself go.  I think I was about 47 pounds over my ideal weight.  On the 26th I bought a Fitbit Flex to help remind me to move more.  And then I told about 4 or 5 friends that I was doing this (I wasn't quite ready to be accountable to the world) and gave them the website address.  It was working quite well as a motivating tool for me and (I think) for my friends too.  But, as usual, I got lazy and slacked off on the blog writing, slacked off on my water intake, and well, just slacked off in general.  So it's time to get back to it, because I refuse to let my work conference pictures look as bad as they did last year; I have until November to bring some serious health up in this bitch.

Ok, so caveat:  I always realize as I'm writing this thing that I have a LOT of friends who are teachers.  In fact, of the eight people I know are reading this, 5 are teachers.  So please don't judge my literary skills; I'm an accountant for a reason.  Hopefully, you can move past my crazy use of commas and find some motivation here.

Caveat #2:  Be warned that this is often a bunch of random thoughts strung together.  Use this post as evidence.  ;-)

If you're reading this in an email, try to go to the blog occasionally.  I have a few things in the right margin, which I don't think shows up in the email.

An update for my past readers, Zapamundo and I made it to Day 10 on the "easy" squat challenge.  But we realized that it was too hard on our knees to continue.  Stay tuned though...I'm thinking of a new challenge that may be starting soon!

I think I'm done with my random thoughts for tonight and will leave you with this motivational quote that I find quite appropriate for this post.


Please leave comments so I know that you're out there and let me know if there are any topics you want to talk about.
