30 by 30 Thursday

Howdy folks!!

I am very proud of myself for getting in my activity this week. It hasn't been easy with changes to my daily routine and the HOT weather, but I managed. Since I am bragging, here is my activity calendar for the month of August!!!!

Woot Woot!!

I have been getting my butt kicked by Level 2 of the Shred, but might be daring soon and step it up to Level 3!! Speaking of getting my butt kicked, earlier this week I was running with my pooch on the main street around my neighborhood and totally BAILED. Some man driving by stopped to see if I was okay, which I was except for being slightly embarrassed. After getting up, thanking the man for stopping and assuring him I was okay and making sure the dog was okay (which he was) I couldn't help but laugh at myself. I guess that's what I get for not really paying attention to where I was going and being lazy thus dragging my feet (I tripped over the uneven sidewalk).

I have been craving salads a lot, probably due to the warmer weather, therefore I have gotten in a lot more fruits and veggies. I do think it has helped with me being so hungry at night. Now if I could just tame my sweet tooth!!
