So, I’m on day 6 of my 21-day challenge. I’ve been religiously sticking to it (well, except the drinking of liver blood part). I haven’t been feeling well, so I’m not sure if it’s a touch of the flu coming on or if the detox is really working over my inner gears.
I haven’t been exercising, until today. There is a lovely park about a mile away from me that has a long walking trail. I went early this morning and there was this spooky layer of fog that hung low across the landscape. It was kind of beautiful. The temperature was in the 40s, but not too cold with just a sweatshirt on. I downloaded the “This Morning” Wall Street Journal podcast on iTunes which runs 36 minutes. It comes out every day, so this is just about the right time I need to walk around the park or my neighborhood. If it’s too cold, I’ll use the treadmill. I think I’ll pick up a pedometer this weekend. Thinking I should wait for the fitbit until I know I’m definitely going to stay on track.
Tomorrow, there is a “cheat” meal on the 21-day challenge plan. The literature cautions you to avoid alcohol, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, and dessert. It’s like faux cheating. Not much fun in that!
I was also thinking of renewing my membership to the gym. I have this amazing gym very close by, Life Time Fitness. It’s like the Country Club of gyms. Again, think I’ll wait until I keep progressing along. I haven’t weighed myself again, because I don’t want to get disappointed if the scale doesn’t meet my mental expectations. Tomorrow is another ATX100 meeting. I’m looking forward to that. I may take it easy on the exercise part, as the group is about 3 months conditioned where I’m just beginning. I think I mentioned they’re starting a new program in January, so I’d rather track with that.
