My journey to a smaller jean size

September Writing Challenge Catch Up: #25 and #26

on September 26, 2012

I missed yesterday’s post.  I had a family thing that took me unexpectedly out of town.  So, today I’m playing a little catch up.

#25:  What is something you do well? This is a tough one for me.  I don’t spend too much time thinking about what I’m good at, but a couple of things come to mind.

Multi-tasking.  Both at work and at home, but especially at work.  I have a number of projects going on around the world (Spain, Italy, Great Britain, Russia, Canada, USA, France, and Brazil to name a few).  My projects are all at different phases and dealing with all these different time zones is a bit of fun…but I’m managing to keep everything going, and for the most part, going without too many hiccups!

Running Slow!  I am not built for speed. I’ve accepted that.  I’ve got short legs and not very good running form.  But, I am your girl for long slow runs on Sunday morning!  I like to think I am helping my sister in her training by keeping her out there longer than she would take if she ran alone!

#26:  What is one area of your fitness that you’d like to improve upon?  This list is much longer…but I will only list my top two here.

Increase the distance that I can run without stopping.  I have gotten up to being able to run 6k without stopping now. I might be able to run further than that, but I’ve been missing most of my steady runs lately so not sure how far I could go now.  I should try to get out there next Tuesday for a steady run.  Now that golf is finished for the year my Tuesday evenings are one again free to run. 

Sticking to Clean Eating.  I am really enjoying all the clean dishes that I have been making.  I just wish I could do it a bit more frequently.  Things seem to creep up on me and often my menu for the week doesn’t exactly go as planned.  I’m staring to think I should start batch cooking on Sundays and get many dishes prepared for the coming week.  This would also be good as it would give me things that I could take for lunch too.


What about you?  What are you good at and what would you like to improve?

  1. I love that you run slow too! I like to say that I run at the speed of walking 🙂
