Week 3 summed up and Week 4: Packing my own lunches and leaving the debit card at home

Week 3 summed up

I did a better job of remembering my meds and vitamins this week… minus those two day but still… better!

drink-yo-water-babyweightsformeWater, I am definitely still working on, however, I am going to set myself reminders. I set myself reminders for my vitamins and those reminders annoyed me enough that I actually took them. What I love about having a mac and an iPhone, my reminders follow me everywhere! At work AND at home 🙂

I set my reminders for every hour from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. everyday. I feel like I can take a break from being annoyed in the evenings! So for week 4, I am going to try this new method to drink my water. Let’s hope I don’t need to set any other reminders in the near future.

Week 4: Packing my own lunches and leaving my debit card at home

I need to start working on my extreme paleo diet. Let’s call it the “EPD Diet” from now on. Yes, it’s so extreme that it deserves an extra “diet” word. A huge issue I have is always forgoing my lunch and buying lunch. Where I work, I have a lot of accessibility to buy food. If I leave my debit card at home, I won’t have the chance to.

So, I’m going to do my best to incorporate as much of the EPD foods as possible into my lunches. I’m going to go through the sugar withdrawal again but let’s hope it won’t be as bad as last time.

and oh yes…

I SIGNED UP FOR MY FIRST RUN!

I’ve always told myself that I’m going to sign up for a 5K and I never do. Today, I actually did it! I have a team of 5 so it’s great that I’m getting all this support. I guess I better start training because as of right now, I can run a total of 1m. (Yes, I’m exaggerating but that’s what I feel like sometimes when I run). This is going to be really exciting!

This weekend, I’m going to start with walking 30 minutes fast pace and then work on a couch to 5K program from there!

So here’s to the finish of week 3 and the start of week 4 in a few days!

    That’s great that you are working towards a goal and a 5K they are so much fun and super motivating I did my first one while I was deployed in Korea we had a blast !!! How are you going to train for it ?

      I’m looking into that this weekend 😉 but… I’ve been seeing a few charts that do the walk-run intervals and works up to 30 mins total run by week 8. A friend of mine is suggesting that I just run for as long as I can and then run a minute more and build myself from there focusing on distance not time. How did you train for yours and what do you suggest?
