Hi Journal & Friends,
Time once again for another Hot 100 Update!
Steve's Hot 100 Challenge started on September 23rd. When it started, it seemed like a looonnnggg time til the end of the year. But it has FLOWN by!
I am excited to be able to report that this week has gone much better.
My 3 goal for the Hot 100 were:
1. Stay within my Calorie Budget
Better as far as the calories. I think next year I want to work not only on "quantity", but also on "quality". I keep reading about people eating "clean" and more nutritionally... I think it's time I want to start leaning that way... next year, ha ha ha.
2. Exercise 6 days/week.
So far, so good. Been alternating between rebounding and resistance bands.
3. Take my Vitamins EVERY day.
Since last Monday, yep.
I was especially excited this week that my left hand is so much better after the carpal tunnel surgery, and is healing so fast, that I was able to do a little exercising with my resistance bands this week.. and no pain! Yay!
From Dr Phil's book: "Avoiding these emotions instead of dealing constructively with them will tax your body and your health... denial is a dangerous filter."
My verse for today: "Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances..."
My quote for today: "Between stimulus and response is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In those choices lie our growth and our happiness." --Stephen Covey
Enjoy the Journey,
A special note: a blog friend a lot of you know, Mary Pax, is out of town for sad family reasons, and wanted to make sure her friends knew she would be gone for a while, and wasn't snubbing anyone. She'll be back... in the meantime, she and her family could use your prayers during a hard time. Here is Mary's blog, Wistful Nebulae.
