Wow! The weeks have just been flying by. Where did we leave off? Oh, yes....
Taji 100 started February 1 and we are now on Day 19.
So far this is how its going:
Pretty awesome:) If anyone would like to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project you can go here.
And how am I doing in the challenge? Glad you asked. Well, the first week I was doing ok and then a got a bit of a cold the second week. But now I'm back on track. I have done 60 miles so far. 40 miles to go. The hardest part is fitting it in around work and everything. It even seems harder than when I was training for the marathon.
I did join a gym so most of the miles have been done like this:
On the treadmill watching Downton Abbey. I got all three seasons and now I'm completely addicted to it.
I've also gone to Spin Class, Body Shred (like step aerobics), and Pilates. I think I like the Pilates the best :) I live in such a tiny town the gym doesn't even have a Yoga class. Crazy, right? I joined this gym for three months and at the end I might try a different gym . There are 2 others in town . I figure one of them should have a yoga class.
I also tried to give up sugar for Lent. It was the longest 15 hours of my life. Last year I gave up alcohol and sweets and was fine. This year I failed. :(
Here are a few pics to catch you up on the rest .
Skyped with my son and grandbaby.
Rachel has her drivers permit. Yikes!
Walking to get my miles in. We've been having a beautiful weather.
We did drive up to the snow for the day. Very fun :)
Beth got a bunny for her rabbit project with 4H. And we also got new baby chicks.
I finally ordered my CIM jacket and I LOVE IT!!
We met this guy on our last walk.
Ooh! I almost forgot!! So I recently joined Twitter. ( @SandeeK if you want to follow me). But I was watching the Super Bowl and when the Jeep commercial with Oprah came on we were all touched because it was saluting our military ( and I miss my son terribly). I just happened to check Twitter right when she mentioned the commercial so I just said thank you and guess what????? Yes!!! Oprah replied to my tweet!
I was so excited!!!
Anyway. That's about it. I'll keep you posted in my final 40 miles. ( And my continued attempt at cutting out sugar.)
