Here's my update first: I will not have gone the distance in November. Only 46hr 10 min instead of my goal of 50hrs. I'll talk more about that tomorrow and answer the questions for the challenge.
I'm still working on the eating. It's hard to make myself eat the good stuff when the sparkly frosting-y cookie goodnesses are stacked to the ceiling at the grocery stores. AND it's hard to make a healthy snack when I have yummy treats or leftovers in the fridge. but I must PERSEVERE! (and you too! stay strong)
I've been waking up with headaches which is not fun so I think it's time to take my allergy meds before bed again. I have been taking fish oil pills again. The magazines all say they're great but I haven't seen any immediate results :)
OH and not health related: I got a bunch of books from the library today which is one of my favorite things. I'm also plugging along with the application essay. I wrote 2 pages and still had a few more ideas but was worried about getting to 5 pages. Then I realized I hadn't double spaced anything!!! Now I just have the conclusion to work on and I've filled up 6.5 pages. Next week is my last week of classes for my current program so I can't wait to get the application turned in to start figuring out plans for next semester.
Here is Dr Oz Holiday Tips that were on his show today (click step #12). Some were pretty good so I thought I'd share the whole article.
