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.

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.

Challenge details to come tomorrow. You know you want to do this. Do it, do it, do it!

Again, I haven't written in a while, but I don't want to forget this one. It's a doozy. I work in an elementary school. I teach ...
