Okay. I’m going to do something again. At the beginning of this year, for the entire month of January, I ate ONLY foods I had planned to eat. And, actually, I ate ONLY what the Shred Diet told me to eat. I didn’t eat out even once in January. I will be eating out a few times this month, but other than that, I plan to eat only what the Shred Diet tells me to. To start it off, I had to go to Walmart this morning and there’s a McDonald’s in the front of the store. I started thinking I could grab a double quarter pounder meal, but then I remembered that I had come up with the idea of replicating January in May, just got an unsweet tea and went on my way. So, with the exception of a few times where I have plans with friends (and I’m not going to go nuts with the food) to eat out, I will be sticking to the Shred Diet parameters.
else exciting…I got the word from my supervisor that my June vacation
for my trip to Oregon is approved. So, when I got home from work last
night I went to the website for the half marathon I’m going to run while
I’m in Oregon and REGISTERED!!! Then, I went to the website for the
hotel that has a deal with the half marathon and is offering discounted
rates to participants and reserved my room for the night before the
race. I’m so excited! I posted on my personal Facebook for my Oregon
friends to message me so we can make our plans for while I’m there. I
can’t wait to see my friends and family! My brother has expressed
interest in taking me out for a trail run or “other coolness” while I’m
there, so I’m looking forward to that.
A couple years ago, I
bought a burned copy of the P90X videos and more or less completed the
90 day program and got kinda fit as a result. While I don’t like all
the workouts it come with (I absolutely HATE the yoga workout…not that I
don’t like yoga, I just don’t like THEIR yoga workout), I do really
like some of them. I really like the strength training workouts. Well,
I have no idea what I did with the copy I bought off the guy from
craigslist…so I was thinking that I was going to have to find another
burned copy from someone else. One of the guys off the day shift at my
job said a friend had given him the actual discs from the program and he
hadn’t used them and had no plans to use them and would I like them?
Um, yes, I would like them, thank you. So the last 3 months I have
spent hounding him to bring them to work to give them to me. He kept
forgetting. He finally brought them in the other day. I looked at the
discs and they’re a little scratched, but hopefully they’ll play just
fine. I’d like to do one of the workouts once a week in addition to the
“paige” workout. I seriously need to come up with a different name for
that. Maybe, since the majority of it is done with the plyo jump box, I
can just call it the jump box workout? Yea, I kinda like that.
Oh, I realized I forgot to post a picture of the Garmin Edge 200 I bought for my bicycle
