Weekly Challenge for Jan. 29 to Feb. 5th

This is posted on Monday and dated to begin on Tuesday...

Try something different every day this week. Whether it is stopping by a new store, working out on a different machine, or calling on old friend. Let's mix it up and try something completely different every day.

Wow...Okay, this one's gonna be hard for me! I barely have time for the routine stuff...which just shows that I need something like this!

I may not do it every day, but I'm going to try for a couple of new experiences.

On the same lines--my husband recently discovered that our local college Outdoor Program has some snowshoeing outings planned, ten bucks gets equipment rental plus hot chocolate and a guided walk. And he wants to go! That will be Feb 20. I'm excited!

I'm in! I know what Monday's will be! We just started yoga at school on Mondays, but the club I'm the advisor for met on Mondays. Today we changed it just because so many of the girls wanted to go to yoga. :-) Hmmm...what should I do tomorrow
? I think I'm going to make coffee at school. I know that doesn't sound too *new* - but it is a serious change in my schedule.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing ~ Helen Keller

This is a great challenge....I'm going to go for seven days too. i am in a terrible rut and I need to mix it up. Also, I'm going to try NOT to plan too far ahead with this one too but instead allow for some sponteneity.

BTW, I think some of these challenges are inspired by genius. Getting healthy takes on all areas of your life. It's not the same old stuff or tried and true formulas that make the real's stepping out and going beyond what we know that opens new doors.

This challenge reminds me of the Helen Keller quote, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing" Here's to a week of daring adventures!

That's one of my favorite quotes, Healthy2!

mejaka here--today I took the kids sledding (standard snow-day activity) and because the runs were too hard and smooth for my old bones, I stuck my sled in the snow and headed up the mountain. Hiked maybe ten minutes up in snow up to my knees and sometimes to mid-thigh, following deer tracks and just taking in the beauty and stillness (I couldnt' hear a thing from the crowded sledding runs). Then hiked back down.

Love the high heels story....sometimes stepping out has less than perfect effects!

There is a road I drive by frequently and I have always wondered what was on the road. Today, I took a look!

What started out as a pretty country road quickly turned into suburbs with brand new mcMansions interspersed with tiny capes built 50 years ago. Occasional farms popped up here and there. I got lost but eventually ended up on a road I know. Now I know what this road is about....and I guess I don't need to check it out again!

I've found some of my best shortcuts and some really pretty routes doing exactly what I did today so I am glad I checked out this road even though the results weren't all that productive this time.

I started taking fiber sure yesterday. Been having some issues with the restroom and thought it might help. So far, I'm feeling better than I was the other day, so I guess that's a start. Tomorrow, my workout will be strictly on the treadmill. I have yet to have just a day on the dreadmill. I hate the machines. However, I think the elliptical needs a break for a day. We'll see how it goes.

Walked a new route today...almost twice my usual distance with less hills. Went by some beautiful horse farms and a cranberry bog which was a nice change of pace! Winds were high which made the walk exciting. Traffic was a little heavier which I didn't like.
