Perfect 10: Week 1

Here are my goals for the Perfect 10:

– Walk 12 miles a week (done)
– Do front (2×60) and side (1×30/side) planks 3 days a week. (done)
– Keep on our budget. (done)
– Hit and exceed my initial weight loss goal (and start a new one) (on pace…)
– Read 4 books  (almost done with one)
– Only use my horn for avoiding traffic collisions.   (success!)
– Cook dinner at home 4 times a week  (done)
– Go on 3 hikes (none yet, but there’s still time)

So far, things are on track.  I should know a little more tomorrow morning when I weigh in.  It will be a bunch of fun, too, since I’ll start tracking my Body Fat %, BMI, and measurements.  Should be interesting.

My interesting tidbit: I met my wife on Native American burial grounds.  That’s right–an Indian Cemetary.  It was out on the Olympic Penninsula in a tribal fishing town called La Push (yeah, yeah, I know about the Twilight series.  Ugh.  Orobably why I haven’t read it and Anna and I haven’t been back since meeting).  I was living out there, working wih the tribal youth and her church came out to do a short term missions trip.  We were interested in each other, started dating a month after, and got married 2-1/5 years later.  But, I can’t remember the first time we met on August 10th, 2004.  She says she remembers meeting me in the cemetary, but I remember meeting her at the dinner their group hosted that night.  You can’t blame me, though.  I was the only guy she met, but their group had like 25 people in it…and I was working (and focused).  But yeah, she still gives me a hard time about that!

Also, I guess my money’s safe again.  I went on the walk and brought my keys this morning.  I’m liking this waking up early thing.  Not sure if I’ll do it during the weekend, though.  I guess we’ll see.
