Less than one week left till the finish line. The hardest part now is finishing strong. Sometimes I think, 25 days is close enough to 30 right? But that's not what this is about. I need to finish this to prove that I can and to be healthy. Now that I've reunited with my Fitbit, I've had to accept some hard truths about myself. If you haven't checked it out yet, I've set some goals for myself, and I thought one of them would be pretty easy, ha. Get 6,000 steps in one day. I thought that would be pretty easy to tick off and get the ball rolling, a success under my belt to motivate me for the harder goals. Turns out, I'm really not moving nearly as much as I thought. I got just over 4,000 steps on Tuesday, and just over 3,000 on Wednesday. No wonder I haven't been moving weight as fast as I'd hoped. I'm going to have to kick it in gear. I've set this weeks step goal at 5,000 a day and it's time to make a conscious effort to get up and move.
On the cooking front, I've been continuing with my culinary adventures. Last night we had Greek burgers with lamb, pine nunts, mint, onions, bell peppers and spices topped with aoli and wrapped in lettuce. It was quite delicious. This morning I made a shake, because my tummy is weird about solid food before 9 a.m., and the only sweet thing it had in it was bananas. Strangely, I kept second guessing myself as I drank it. Am I sure this doesn't have any ingredients with sugar or sweeteners - nope and nope. Guess my taste buds are finally detecting the natural sugar in food. I'll be interested to see what actual sugar tastes like when this is all over. I'm gonna guess it will be a bit strong. Well, I'm off to crank out some steps seeing as I'm only at 972. Wish me luck!
