This weekend I I met my fitness goal again! The original goal was to move a total of 400 miles in the year 2011! Ellie over at Books, Fitness, and Other Stuff, created the challenge and started the ball rolling. I met the 400 mile goal back in On March 14th so I doubled it to 800 miles and this past Friday I met that!! I was so excited that Hubby took me out for a Dairy Queen Mini Blizzard! No it is not Low Carb but I was celebrating and knew that I could work it off. I had asked you all what reward I should give myself for reaching the 800 mile mark and many of you told me to go someplace warm! Well gas being what it is, I opted to use the gift certificate that I had gotten for my birthday from Hubby and scheduled a "Spar Day". Yup, a 1 hour massage with most of my body covered by heated sheets with one body part sticking out at a time, followed by a 1 hour facial and I was "butter" trying to drive home. I wanted to sleep so bad. I was warm all over! Oh my!!! That was just heavenly. Have you ever had a massage and facial? If not, mothers day is coming and you should really leave hits that you would like to go. Believe me, you will feel wonderful after they are done with you. Heated sheets, heated towels, it was really a real treat. Now, just in case he's reading this, I would love a pedicure.....Just saying.
Well what is a girl to do who has met the 400 Challenge twice now??? I added another 400 miles to the challenge and so I'm working towards 1200 miles. Any idea what the reward should be for that one???
You can see my Miles To Date on the side bar if you want to know how close I am to the 3rd goal of 1200 miles.
Other than that, I raked the yard (all done finally), shopped, and made an appointment with the Red Cross to donate blood. I don't know how things work with the Red Cross where you are but up her you can't just walk in and give blood. The state is small and so the same people that conduct the blood drives in different locations also collect blood at there base office so they have really odd hours. I had to call the 800# and give them my contact information and they will call me back to set up the appointment. I found that odd but completely understand. I am waiting for them to call me back and then I will roll up my sleeve and let them take whatever they can get. Have you ever given blood? What was your experience? How was your weekend?
