Maybe in my past, the Frappuccino sign would have drawn me in…but, as Donna Summer once sang…I’ve Got a New Attitude!
My summer is more defined by water and green tea…unsweet, of course. A student gifted me a Starbuck’s card so I can drink their green tea for a little while.
Also, the only shopping I am doing is sponsored shopping at Goodwill. I am really trying to put any sale shopping on hold for now (at least a month) until I can get my body into better shape and fit into the clothes I bought last year when I was lighter. I am slowly going the other direction now....progress, baby steps!
I told my husband that I wanted to get moving more and he suggested I wear a clicker and see how active I am. He said that he imagined I walked about 6,000 steps a day. His personal goal is between 17,000 and 20,000 a day. He has a very slim male friend who walks that amount every day. So today was the first day for the clicker, and I blew my husband away by doubling the amount. I will say that I did not teach today and it will be harder to move that much on days when I work. Mr. B is challenging me to just walk one step more every day and build on my progress so that I can “up my game.” Today, I did things like park far away from the stores where I was running errands, and walk down to the mail box. It was not as hard to reach that number as I thought it would be…of course it included my morning walk in the neighborhood!
These are the signs of my summer. What signs represent yours?? Happy Saturday all!!
