Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Sláinte! (pronounced “slaan-sha”) translates to “Health”.
Today, my husband and I are starting the 31 Day “Squat Challenge”. 30 today, 35 tomorrow and so forth.
Since my surgery (well, before that), I have no ass! Well, it’s very flat and without that muffin top that I used to have, I can’t hold up my pants! I have plumbers crack now! I want to build the booty up. Squats is the best way, I believe.
I am back on my “No Sugar Challenge.” I made it to 12 days and then 5 oatmeal cookies made it to my mouth. I feel better when I don’t eat sugar if I’m honest with myself. Just that one little hiccup set me back because I’ve been craving sweets ever since. I couldn’t even fall asleep last night thinking about how a Cadbury egg would be good. I love them!
Cookies give no real satisfaction to me when it comes to craving sweets. The reason is that one cookie can be eaten so fast that I don’t get to enjoy the cheat! It takes many and that is going over the line. At least with cake, pie or a pastry, you can slowly enjoy it with a cup of coffee. So from now on, if I cheat…it won’t be cookies.
I should run tonight but my right knee is still a little sore from Saturday but if it’s sunny when I get off, I may go for a couple of miles. I saw someone on Facebook was doing a run challenge that intrigues me. 20 miles in 10 days. I can’t get too many challenges going or I’ll quit them all!
Tonight is left over Corned Beef, Cabbage and Colcannon. I’ll dine alone tonight because Kevin works late. It will be me and my Irish dogs!
Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold pint and another one!
