Oh Squat.

Image from here. (This is not me.)

Oh Squat.
About 32 hours ago, I did a ton of these plus many lunges and some heavy weighted, one legged dumbell deadlifts. And a bunch of other stuff.
And my you know what is aching.
And a stiff.

But I love it.
It means I did something.
I did something good.
And the pain will go away in a while.
Hopefully.
Soon.

The last 11 weeks before Christmas, I participated in a fitness challenge that my friend started.
I didn't put money in the pot, because I knew I would lose. (Vacation and all - I'm not that down on myself!)
Guess what? Even with the vacation, I still came in 4th-woo hoo. I think I would have been a lot lower in the rankings, if people had not stopped sending in their points. I wonder if they just gave up or just got busy.

I surprised myself with the discipline I had.

And this week, I've surprised myself with the discipline I've lacked.
It's not like to old days, when I could knock out a bunch of goodies in no time flat, but I've eaten more sugar than in all the previous 11 weeks combined.

This morning I woke up with a headache.
I'm pretty sure it's from the sugar.
I need to get back on track.

So, I think I am going to start my own fitness challenge.
January 3rd until March 13th, 2011.
Ten weeks. Seventy days.
I need to make these healthy habits more than habits.
I need to make them who I am.

Want to join me?

By the way--BIG CONGRATS to my wonderful friend (who frequents this little blog). She was the big winner! She lost 9 pounds and won the pot. And is very excited to have her Saturday mornings back for sleeping.
