The Biggest Loser theme song asks:
What Have You Done Today To Make You Feel Proud?
It's a great question, and I keep trying to incorporate it at home with the kids (i.e. conversation-starter at a family dinner), but haven't really made a regular habit of it.
I've been thinking about my food diary and how it's not helping me change my ways because no one else sees it. It's harder to write down "Breakfast: one slice of tollhouse pie" if you know it's going to be public. While I'm not quite ready for full disclosure (and that would be ultra-boring reading!), I do think it would be helpful to regularly proclaim "the good" and fess up to "the bad and the ugly". Plus, I'm really trying to blog more consistently.
Thus, I am hereby starting a weekly blogpost of accomplishments and confessions (just the highlights, I promise).
This week, I am proud because...
~I worked out 6 days out of 7, which is what my Hal Higdon training plan says I'm supposed to do (last year, I basically blew off the whole "cross-training" concept).
~Alan and I have been doing much better at planning dinners ahead. This amounts to "real" meals (although we're still pathetic about fresh vegetables), much less stress, and more time spent together as a family.
I am less proud that...
~I didn't do all the running mileage I was scheduled to do, but I'm ok with that.
~The tollhouse pie entry? Yeah, that was true (It was warm and melty and accompanied by a caramel latte and I change my mind; I'm not sorry after all!).
And now the question goes to you:
