FFIC - Catching Up! Days 2, 3, 4

Monday, June 28, 2010

Okay, so it's really hard for me to Spark on the weekends. I usually reserve my weekends for activity outside the house, and while I didn't schedule anything for the family this weekend, other people did. ANYHOW....to recap days 2-4:

Friday, June 25th (Day 2)

(Body)
* Workout/Fitness Minutes - 1 (20 minute walk at lunch) + 4 (1 hour at the water park)
* Calorie Counts - 0 (I didn't log, so I'm not giving myself anything!)
* Strength Train - 0

(Mind)
* Beauty Reminder - 2 (While I could have been a mess at the water park with the skinny chicks, I just felt this pride for how far I'd already come. And I had to hold the girls in my suit because it's gotten too big! *lol* I reminded myself several times - "You are amazing!", so while I didn't post anything I'm giving myself the points - this was a HUGE deal!)
* Brain Challenge - 0
* Read - 6

(Soul)
* Stretch and Breathe - 0

2 bonus points for trying a new exercise, food, or soul-enriching activity, as long as you report on it! (Share the love, baby!)

+2 for trying the Water Slide at the park. I *hated* it because fat girls and water slides = gravity and really high speeds. I was terrified! But this is the first time I have EVER done this. I was always too afraid of "getting stuck" or something silly. This time I said "What the he11" and took a chance. While it wasn't really enjoyable, I showed myself once again that the only way to turn a CAN'T into a CAN is to DO.

Total for the Day: 15

Saturday, June 26th (Day 3)

(Body)
* Workout/Fitness Minutes - 1 ...yep, that's it. SAD!
* Calorie Counts - 0 (I didn't log, so I'm not giving myself anything!)
* Strength Train - 0

(Mind)
* Beauty Reminder - 2 (I put on some makeup before heading to the barbeque and I smiled a little and may have put out a bit of a flirting vibe to one of the new guys because he was checking me out. *lol* I felt AMAZING this night, so I get points...I didn't talk myself out of the attention or compliment. I accepted it. Someone looked at me with a twinkle in his eye and I digested the compliment like a big girl! YAY ME!)
* Brain Challenge - 0
* Read - 1

(Soul)
* Stretch and Breathe - 0

2 bonus points for trying a new exercise, food, or soul-enriching activity, as long as you report on it! (Share the love, baby!)

Total for the Day: 4 WOW! MAJOR SUCK!

Sunday, June 27th (Day 4)

(Body)
* Workout/Fitness Minutes - 1 (20 minute walk/run)
* Calorie Counts - 0 (I didn't log, so I'm not giving myself anything!)
* Strength Train - 0

(Mind)
* Beauty Reminder - 0 Nada...felt like CRAP actually. I should deduct points for talking down to myself...but I won't. Because I'm still learning.
* Brain Challenge - 0
* Read - 0

(Soul)
* Stretch and Breathe - 0

2 bonus points for trying a new exercise, food, or soul-enriching activity, as long as you report on it! (Share the love, baby!)

Total for the Day: 1 ONE? REALLY? MAN!
----------------------------

So my total so far for the challenge is:
Day 1: 31
Day 2: 15
Day 3: 4
Day 4: 1

-------------
Total: 51 *sigh* I could be doing MUCH better! But I've got 3 days left...and I'm doing pretty well today considering the knee and all. Hoping to make it through a highly modified Zumba class in a couple hours....followed by a hot shower and a night of icing the knee.

BBKLECKA is kicking my rear end right now with 118 points!!! (Great thing is, I'm actually not jealous...I'm so proud of her! I love these kinds of competitions because everyone wins, really!)
