challenge: day 5-9


so... the first week of the challenge went by with flying colors! my mom drank pop & had a punishment...so instead of 4 1/2 hour walks...she had to do a 1/2 hour walk every single night...she still drank pop 2 other times & tried to laughingly blame it on someone else... oh mom, you can't fool me! :)
my sister lynds did good, except instead of walking 4 nights, she put the 2 hours of walking into 1 or 2 nights...and me...WHAT, WHAT? i win. i passed with flying colors, as i said. 

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE is given by lynds...here it is... 3 1/2 hour walks/runs...10 minutes of stretching before each one...only 1 sweet per day...veggies before EVERY lunch & dinner.... OOOOH. i usually stretch, but not 10 minutes... so today when i did it, i convinced myself i could tell a difference in my run! i actually think i did! it's not hard for me to eat veggies...at all...but making a conscience choice to every meal is hard. i guess i just don't think about it. to make things easier, pretty much all i'm eating is veggies...that way i won't forget & won't loose the challenge! i've pretty much cut out sweets & pop...for now! FOR NOW.

here's a recap of the last 5 days!

after day 7 (going 4 miles), i found out my shorts were apparently TOO short...they were VS Pink ones...ummm, my thighs weren't having it & MAJOR CHAFFING happened, people. ouch. ouch is RIGHT. not doing that again. i waddled home like a penguin...and i woulda ran MORE, but it hurt too bad. so, i got out my cooly-dooly biker shorts to run in tonight! no more chafing! BOOYAH.

$10 or $14 at wal-mart last year...i'm going to look for more. maybe tjmaxx...cheapies...i'm cheap.
