always up for a challenge

Happy hump day my friends.  Once again need I remind you not to go there with me, get your mind on something else for pumpkin’s sake!!

I mean I just went through a dang hurricane.  Only to return to work with a broken air conditioner.  Which was like going back through a hurricane again.  Well back through a hurricane without rain.  Oh and no wind.  I mean not even a little breeze.  Oh and with the lights on, only the air not working.  I think you get the picture!

Have you ever been through a hurricane?  Yeah trust me you don’t want to.  Because there is nothing else to do but eat.  Oh and drink.  I am talking about the grown up versions of drinks.  Which leaves you like 8lbs. heavier than what you were the day before the dang thing arrives.  I just don’t get it.  If a hurricane blows away houses, blows down tress, blows out you lights, why can’t it blow away your weight??

BUT………

Peas and Crayons

That is why I am loving Jenn’s new theme for What I Ate Wednesday!  She is all about good habits.  Which is why I love here.  Which is what I didn’t develop during the dang hurricane.   Which is what I need to work towards.  Ok, ok I know it’s a little dramatic.  I mean I didn’t totally fall off the wagon.  I just took a small stumble :)

But I wasn’t joking about the 8lbs!  Which I know is a good bit of water retention, I am sooooo  bloated (no drama in this statement). 

“So for the new What I Ate Wednesday theme, lets make a few goals and FALL into good habits this month.  You set the pace!  Pick a few small goals or one big one, and embrace some healthy changes in your life!”

So here we go…….

sorry for the iphone pics, didn’t have my camera battery charged this morn :(

Not a bad spread if I must say so myself.  I know that we are starting on the fall theme this month, but give me a break on the summer spread.  I still have some great fruits/veggies available at the produce stand so I am enjoying them as long as I can.  I promise you the pumpkin is coming really, really soon!

Now I have to admit that my two goals for this week in BBB was to start eating more greens, and replacing a snack (which is usually in bar form) with a piece of fruit.  I had already set in my mind that I was going to lose the weight gained last week, as well as get back on track before I saw the challenge.  Which means that I get to come up with some new and exciting goals to work on for the month of September!!

Here we go…….

  • continue to run three times per week (my 5k is Saturday)
  • eat at least three vegetarian meals per week
  • organize my new office (so busy I have yet to work on organization)

I may or may not add to the three above through out the month.  I will have to see how things go, what things come up that I would like to address, and see how I handle the above goals along with the ones for bootcamp. 

So tell me what are some goals you would like to address to fall into good habits :)
