This was one of those weeks that peaked on Tuesday and then kind of tumbled and stumbled to a dismal finish. Nothing horrible at all, for which I’m humbly thankful, but a couple of disappointing turn of events, a root canal with feverish complications (I look like a chipmunk!), the apparent death of my treadmill, and endless gray days have me very much looking forward to a fresh new week!
On the plus side, nutrition and exercise were pretty decent this week. When my treadmill went into a coma, I learned that my parents still had an old stationary bike I’d purchased years and years ago, so I hauled it to my house. It’s pretty pathetic, as cardio equipment goes, but after I put on my 10-pound ankle weights, I was able to get in a good workout on it. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, eh?
Also on the plus side, I “discovered” a really cool international food market near my house that has fruits and veggies I never even heard of. It’s been there for several years, and I only drive past it every two or three days, but I’d never bothered to stop until yesterday. My goal of trying new foods every few weeks just got a whole lot easier.
Another bright spot to the week was that a number of new-to-me bloggers dropped in to comment, and now I have some fun new blogs to check out! Following other people as they achieve their goals always inspires me to keep chasing my own. Funny how that works, isn’t it?
Finally, these articles also brightened my otherwise gray-ish week:
– Kat over at BodyIncredible.com shared How to Boost Your Metabolism in 3 Minutes 29 Seconds (Caution: If you need to pee, I suggest you do it before watching the accompanying video.)
– MakeUseOf clued me in on this free online food diary, exercise, and weight loss tracker.
Hope you’re looking forward to an amazing weekend!
