This week, the Monday Project is about the bank. The bank is the place you deposit all of your workout and fitness “experience” every time you walk out the door. I have three deposits this week. Here they are....
1. I gave up diet coke for lent. I can't believe the difference it makes in how I feel. I find that I drink more water in a day than I did diet coke and I thought I drank a lot of diet coke. Sometimes I think I slosh when I walk. I did go through the caffeine headaches for a few days, but it was worth it. I tried drinking a Nestea ice tea from the machine in the lunchroom at work to take the edge of at lunch, but I quit that really quickly when I read it had 210 calories. I'll suffer the headache.
2. I started wearing my pedometer again. I find that I move a lot more when I have that to check. I stay on the treadmill longer and I pace the halls when I am waiting for little people in the bathroom at work.
3. I think that shoveling snow is a huge workout. My hubby is in Florida and we have had snow all week. Monday was the worst when it was four inches of wet heavy slushy stuff. It weighed a ton. It's what they call "heart attack" snow in these parts and I can see why. Funny how he picked this week to go golf with his dad.
So...that's how my bank account stands this week. If you'd like to read about some other deposits, just head over to the Sisterhood.
