<p>What are you challenging yourself to do these days?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm challenging myself to actually wait at corners for the green light before crossing.  There's an awful lot of peer pressure to just cross when it's clear.  I use it to practice breathing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also ride the escalators instead of stampeding up and down them with the rest of the busy bees in downtown Mpls.</p>

<p>Getting back in shape and losing weight.  So far, I'm failing.  My achilles has become a huge problem, so I'm going to join a health club.  I'm sitting here waiting for a call back from one that's closeby.</p>

<p>My challenges:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>* To consistently join my running group for runs</p>
<p>* To call people more often</p>
<p>* To socialize with family members, who are really quite lovely people</p>
<p>* To keep my dog from bringing his chow onto the carpet and messily eating it there</p>

I like your challenges, what can you do to help yourself achieve these?  Are there ways we can help support you in these?<br><br>

<p>Oh, action?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Um, tonight I'm running with my group. I called a cousin today. I'm getting together with more cousins on friday night. I called my dad today. I told my dog "NO!" when he tried dragging his food over to the carpet and he obeyed.</p>

<p>You certainly don't look very calm with that green face of yours!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My challenge is to get back to my pre-Evelyn weight.  I'm 6 lbs away (and Evelyn is 6 months old).  So far, so good!  Hand in hand with this challenge is exercising every day and eating well. </p>

<p>my personal challenges:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>1. be patient with my MIL...omg, omg, omg...  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>2. get these 6-7 extra pounds of flubber off my bod [yes, 7 pounds is a lot when you're a teeny tiny mum, and are not supposed to weigh what I weigh, and enjoy food WHEY too much] <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>3. attempt to add mileage to my pitiful weekly wussy totals <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>Porty, I am with you.  I've gained about six pounds in the last few weeks, and it makes a huge difference on little old me.</p>

<p>I'm in the lose weight camp.  So far I am sticking to my Game On Diet plan, though I am lacking in the exercise.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Keep better track of my finances and use cash instead of debit.  It's going to be a tight, tight summer. </p>
