5 at 5 Day 2 Report

Did it! Knee was fine. Didn't fall. (Harder to wake, though).


  1. Good job! I just asked Seth if the treadmill would work out for this challenge. I just can't do the outside thing where I live, it's usually around zero degrees in the morning! :(

  2. Yay, good for you! I'm glad your knee is ok. I would definitely find it hard to get up at 5 am to exercise ;).

  3. I'm glad that you were able to get out again and that your knee is okay.

    I see "Drink more water" as one of you MFG's on the sidebar. How much are you aiming for? My naturopath wants me to drink 20 cups of water every day. I think I'm able to do about 10 or 12 on a good day, but I'm getting there. Leaves less room for Coke which he wants me to drink 0 cups a day 8=)

    I like how you've identified your goals here.

    Sorry to hear about your 'w' though. I remember when I first started working with one company, they didn't know that the keyboard they gave me had a couple sticky letters (like most of the left hand letters). Every time I hit one of the bad keys there would be 3 or 4 letters and I'd have to backspace. Ah, the good old days!

  4. AFG - I used to have a treadmill when we lived in Chicago...very helpful during their tough weather. I gave it away when we had to move. It's great you have access to one. I'd use it during this challenge.

    Anna - It is hard to get up at 5. I may adjust that time, but I do like getting up early before everyone else.

    LoneWolf - On a good day, I drink about 6-9 glasses. I don't count but do set my watch for about every 1.25 hours then drink about 8 oz. I stop around 7 so I'm not up during the night making trips to the restroom.

    I had a friend who did drink too much water and depleted/diluted her electrolyte count. She had to be hospitalized. I keep that in the back of my mind.

    Sounds like your old work keyboard taught you a lot of patience.

  5. Woot!

    I hardly drink water, so I guess I'm safe from depleted electrolytes :)
