the long road to healthy

TUNNELMy brother and me.  Possibly the last documented photo of me as a blond.  A real blond, that is.

We are two days into the 21 day challenge at the Sisterhood.  How are you doing?  As for me, well…

  1. 5:45 — didn’t happen today.  Harry woke up in the middle of the night and crawled in with us.  I woke up just before the alarm was to go off and… well, he just looked so damn cute and peaceful I couldn’t bear to wake him up.  And, yes, I wanted that extra hour myself.
  2. 7 hours of sleep — yes.  Since I nixed #1, I was able to fulfill #2.  Sometimes there’s a trade off.
  3. 30 minutes of cardio — 60 today.  I used to do a lot of Ashtanga Yoga, and decided to dust off one of my dvds today, since I missed my morning routine.  It’s not as hard-hitting as running, but ashtanga isn’t sitting around *stretching* either.  It felt pretty good.
  4. 5 day split — today was back and abs.
  5. blog — check!

In review: luckily, these are habits I’m working to form, so not being perfect doesn’t make me feel like a failure.  In retrospect, I wish I had gotten up and worked out before the temp hit the 80s.  I think of all the things I want to do, getting up early is going to be the toughest.  But I’m working on it.



  1. Getting up early is definitely the hardest for me, too…

  2. Yeah…. just a few days in and I’m already re-thinking that one. The funny thing is, I haven’t actually slept in since before having kids. At 7AM I’m wide awake. I need to work at pushing that back bit by bit, I guess.

  3. I love your you capture. My isn’t harry a cutie!!! ANd I’d take a sleep in over waking up to work out any day, but then again I prefer the night to work out. 🙂
