There has been no opportunity for r/a because the kids are home for March Break. Barney did find time to wield his evil cane the other night, ( which for the first time ever had me bawling after a punishment, not so much over guilt I don't think just so many emotions on running on overload over here)
~ Anyway who knew he didn't like to be snapped at over loading the dishwasher? Meh, live and learn.
You know those annoying people that say they get addicted exercise? Yeah, so not me. In truth if I didn't start this #$@% challenge I probably would have said,
" @#%$ it!" on day 2 !
Day one and two found me 'running' the stairs in our home for 30 minutes. It usually goes something like this : first 10 minutes speed demon;
next 5 minutes @#$% I HATE this!;
next 5 minutes, "oh I am almost half way there!";
next 5 minutes " @#$% I hate this!!! ";
then, " I'm almost done!".
After " wow that was good, and MAN I am sweaty!"
" Hey you didn't signal"
" I think I pulled a hamstring" <-this was LITERALLY before we left the neighbourhood
Wilma- " How come the wind is still in our face after we changed directions? "
Barney- " That is because we are walking 40 Km an HOUR! "
" My doctor didn't clear me for this type of exercise"
By the end of our walk the tables had turned somewhat
Fortunately Day 4 offered up the chance to go outside and shovel! LOL. So for an hour and a half I shovelled, chopped and shovelled again in order to find our back deck to sit in the sunshine. Sadly no wine to be had as it is off of my list for the next 40 days.
Another couple of days of outside walking until yesterday when Mother Nature decided she wasn't done with torturing us
Back to the @#$% Stairs it was for me!
So YES I did reach all of my goals. Surprisingly, the toughest one was and continues to be drinking 8 glasses of water a day.
I should have included all the going to and from the bathroom in my exercise regime. I mean think of the squats alone!
Anyway I survived! I hope all of you who have joined the challenge publicly, or behind the scenes are finding success too. Let me be honest, if it wasn't for publicly putting this out there I probably wouldn't have completed my tasks!
