Quote du jour: When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.
Goal of the month: Concentrate on eating Good.
Wait, another goal of the month? Didn't you just do this in November? And didn't you get sick and tired of having a goal of the month?
Yes. But did it help to push myself for a month to purge/sort/organize? Definitely. I now have a house that is
So while they make me bitch/moan/whine, a month-long goal can be helpful.
The trouble with me has always been that I can focus on eating right or I can focus on exercising, but when I try to do both at once I drop one or the other.
I'm hoping that I've gotten into the habit of exercising to the point where I don't have to focus on getting it done. I could be dreaming. We'll see.
For the next month, I'm going to focus on going all vegetarian. I know that some people are really into low-carb or no-carb diets, and that's fine if that works for them. I want to see if being a vegetarian makes a difference to my body. If it doesn't, then I'll try something else. Not so much a leap of faith, as a leap of experimentation.
Exercise du jour: Elliptical. I do love that elliptical. It is a really simple, convenient way to get the heart rate up. Unlike squats, I don't need to be careful about the knees while ellipticalling.
Done! 30 minutes on the elliptical. Plus, 100% vegetarian day. (HBBC 3)
1/2 - 30 minutes elliptical, 20 minutes stretching, 45 minutes raking, which I'm inclined to consider at least on the level with "light" aerobics, plus veggies. HBBC points: 7
