5 at 5 Day 7 Report (Last Day!) and Next Challenge

I got the 5K walk in! And thanks to KatieO's advice yesterday, I didn't zap my ears.

Seth's challenge was a great way to kick start an exercise routine. I am going to continue walking but take it a "step" further. I'm going to do the Couch-to-5K program. It's 30 min every other day. In between I'll do the yoga video I won at Cranky Fitness (I ACTUALLY won something).

I liked getting up early. My goal is to get to bed earlier and wake at 5:30 a.m. I'm going to use at least a half hour of that for spiritual fitness (prayer, scripture study). First things first. Then the c25k/yoga.

Seth's next challenge is 250 crunches a day and a different green veg to crunch on per day for 7 days. I'm going to modify that. I'll do the crunches eod and do 100 calf raises in between (may modify that number depending on my plantar fascia). Green veggies are purchased and ready to be crunched.

Maybe you've heard this before, but I like it:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely in an
attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, body
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and
screaming, "WOO HOO, what a ride!"


  1. Love the dog picture! They look vicious! LOL

    I need to get back to getting up early. After the holidays, it's tough. It wasn't uncommon for me to sleep in past 8 or 9. :(

    I'm glad you got your earphone issue fixed!

  2. I'm an early riser and it really helps me go to bed earlier too. Good for you on getting that 5K in! I'm so impressed.

  3. BIG CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep up the great work!
