sunday fun day is back...one day late

seriously, harder than it looks

well people. i'm a little wheezy. slightly asthmatic. mildly dizzy, achy, and complainy.

what does this all add up to? i ran for 30 minutes. it's my third time in three weeks. i'm averaging just over three miles a week. people call me a math whiz. i call me...lazy.

the wind on the farm has decreased to an average of 20 mph at any given hour. the sun is shining about 10 minutes a day. i think it's time farm fit-ass was back in full swing. wudduya say? okay!

now, in order to bring back farm fit-ass i probably need to bring back sunday fun day. the goal setting holds me accountable...to me? to my blog? it holds me accountable.

goal time:

1. i have big plans for running this week. regardless of the weather, i will run at least three miles three times this week. that's quite the jump from my three miles/week average. i mean really, i have zero excuse to NOT run. remember that amazing treadmill my farmer got me for christmas? the one with the built in tv? it misses me.

2. we bought a bbq from my very most favorite store...ever. costco. i pretty much paid for a membership so i could walk around and eat the samples. worth it. anyway, we bought a bbq. and it's wonderful. we (i use the term we loosely) grilled lemon pepper chicken kabobs last night. uh, yum. so i fully intend to do some serious grillin' this week. maybe some fish. maybe a dog or two. (hotdogs...) let me set my goal at cooking dinner three times this week...starting yesterday. so two more grill days to go.

3. more h20 for this girl. i have to start drinking more water. i mean, i don't really drink soda. i stay away from juice. so basically i've been dehydrated for the past six years. it's going to by hydration-nation up in these here parts. i'm thinking better skin. less hungry. less head-throbbing/puke feeling when i run. 80 ounces a day. that's the goal.

on a lighter note...i bought this vase from anthro as SOON as it went on sale. i love it. my kitchen loves it. the flowers love it.

  1. This totally motivated me to FILL ER UP today! :)

    #1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (also applies to half the world population)
    #2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.
    #3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.
    #4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
    #5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
    #6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
    #7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
    #8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79% and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water you should drink every day?
