But short-term, uncomplicated, obtainable goals? There's a chance for me!
So, since I can't go to the Biggest Loser ranch or take off my weight on Dancing with the Stars, and since I can't afford Jenny Craig and drugs aren't a good option because I might set the bar too high for myself at work regarding artificial productivity, I'm taking on a little challenge. If you want to try it, please do, and when it's over, we'll link up here and talk about what our two-week challenge was like for us.
Beginning on the 26th, I'm pledging to move for 30 minutes at least 5 days a week for two weeks. Thus my cleverly named project: "30 x 5." Did I mention its only for 2 weeks? Did I mention a bathroom scale in this effort? I didn't??? That's right; I didn't!
Now, you can do this however you want; if you love the scales (are you from another planet?) or feel that you must keep track of your calories, that's your call. But don't hold the rest of us to that. Insert group whine: "That's too haaaaard."
As for me and my house :), we will not be writing down foods or checking pulse rates or focusing on muscle groups. Just movin'.
I might move my dog down the street, for instance, so that she can check her "pee-mail." I might turn up my 70s playlist you see at the bottom of the blog and do something strange for 30 minutes that I like to call "la danse du femme fou," or "the dance of the insane woman."
It'll be fun to hear each other's observations at the end of two weeks. But even if no one joins me, I'm in, because I need a little picker-upper. Especially if I'm gonna walk that dog.
