Perfect Ten Update #2
It's time for my second PERFECT TEN update!
MY PERFECT TEN CHALLENGES
1) Begin the NROL4W program (THE NEW RULES OF LIFTING FOR WOMEN - LIFT LIKE A MAN, LOOK LIKE A GODDESS). I just completed my second week on this program in spite of a difficult week. One of my dogs was in the vet hospital and I came down with a cold, so I ended up doing two of the workouts in one day in order to stay on track-- but I pulled it off and that's what's important.
The push-ups and the heavier weights are already creating changes that I can feel, so I am psyched!
2) Begin Training for the New Haven Road Race: I only did jogging intervals once this week, again. But given the week I had, I am not concerned. Also, the road race is 9 months away so I have plenty of time to train for it. For the next few months, the weights will be my priority. My fitness week ends on Saturday so I may try to get some jogging intervals in tomorrow--but if not, Sunday begins a new week.
3) Lose 20 pounds by the end of the challenge. Incredibly, I already lost half of this with the nice drop I had this week. I may end up increasing this goal to 30 pounds to keep myself focused.
4) Improve sleep habits: My sleep got all messed up when my dog got sick and I was up all night with him vomiting. I went in and out of bad sleeping all week because of that and difficulty breathing because of the head cold. Hoping to get back on track over the weekend.
Now, I am supposed to reveal something you probably don't know about me. I am tired and still battling my cold so I will make it an easy one this week. I LOVE music of all kinds and I have an uncanny ability for remembering useless facts. So I KNOW who sang all of the one-hit wonders from the 60's, 70's 80's, the names of the band members, where they are from, who wrote the song, etc.
I am famous for this where my husband works. If a song comes on and they don't know who is singing it, they call me and ask me. Everyone tells me if there were a show like "Jeopardy" for music, I would kick ass. People always try to stump me but it rarely happens.
I still have my cold so I will end this here. I wannted to stay on track with my updates and really nail this challenge!
