Day 8

These are my numbers for tomorrow, Day 8.  I am giving myself a second CE.  I have my dinner all planned out.  Therefore, it will be no problem, plus no junk food in my house, only clean food.

CE: 18/18/95
RT: 5/20
CT: 3/12 (I am going to try to get to four by doing one more tonight, I will update if I do.)
PG1: Walk/Hike outside one day a week minimum. (I went on a nice walk with my Cousin this morning, first one in a long time.  I really pushed her and she was huffing and puffing but she kept up.  Going to try to get a walk in at the lake tomorrow bringing this to two which will be right on target.)
PG2: Use the Performance Ball once a week. (I need to do get this ball out and motivate myself to do it.)
PG3: Read two books. (I had three diet type books and I read what I feel would educate me. I did not feel the need to read the book cover to cover. I also read many articles off the Precision Nutrition Web site so I am counting this as one book read.  I also have a phofe book that once started I can finish in a few hours.  It is enjoyable.  That will be my book 2.  Then on to the Precision Nutrition book.  I do not have time to delve into any serious novels at this time.)
PG4: Get my files and recipes in order. (Ongoing.  I am trying to get my tax stuff in order.  This is real challenging as most my office is in my garage.  I packed up things thinking I would be back in my office before Christmas.  It is a slow process but I will get it done.  Then I will get my 2009 files in order.  I keep adding recipes to my circa file as I find them or try them.)

In my last 52DC one of the group said something to the effect is get it done early just in case something happens and you run out of time.  I have seen a few injuries already that have sidelined those people.  I want to work hard to get it done early.  Just in case.   I am doing well right now.  Gonna pat myself on the back.

That is it for now.  I am proud to say the first 52DC put the fire in my belly to continue.  I stumbled in the mini and I want to make sure that does not happen again.  I need to keep going with no break.  On the other hand, maybe one day of junk food and then back to my daily routines so I do not backslide.  I need to lose 25 pounds to see if strength training is what has kept me from losing weight all these years.  I love the scale I bought but force myself to only get on it on Mondays and log the info and only use it as a tool, but I am telling you when the weight goes down it is much easier to continue eating perfectly clean.

Okay, those that are following my progress and parts of my live.  Have a great day and keep eating clean and working hard at changing your life for the better.

    Thanks so much BBM. I was at a low and feeling sorry for myself and there you are cheering me up and helping me to move on. You are a huge role model and I sincerely appreciate your comments. Amazing how words can affect a person. The Performance Ball I have had for awhile now. Just never really kept it out and used it. You can go here and check it out… Because my grip is so week we thought this would be easier if I dropped it. Check out the FAQ.

    Just got back from the bookstore and they have the book “Four Way Burn” for only $4.99 an you can ship in a flat rate envelope for like four bucks, book rate is even cheaper.

    You are doing great – keep it up – we all have periods of lack of focus. That is why I do the 52DC – keeps me going.
