1. I think it is time for a 500 mile club PiF update! Looks as though I will finally hit 100 miles this week! Of course I had hoped to hit that mileage back in March but my hip and I weren’t getting along as you all well know by this point. I’ll be running a mile or tonight and another one tomorrow at PT, so my 5k on Sunday will put me over the 100 mile mark!!! Are you in the 500 mile club? If so, how are you doing with your miles?
2. About a month ago my work put a block on blogs. But suddenly, and awesomely, the block was removed. I was thoroughly enjoying this until last Friday when I noticed the block was back on!!! Oddly, the block is not on all blogs. It looks as though it affects only those blogs with a pop-up comment screen (blogger, I think). Even still, I miss my blog-reading breaks big time already and it has only been a few days. 😦
3. Tricia over at Endurance Isn’t Always Physical, asked her readers to take pledges for better health for National Women’s Health Week from May 9-15. I decided to give up Ranch Dressing. I know this is such a simple thing. You may be thinking how lame this is, but if you knew me IRL, you would know how tough this challenge is for me. I eat ranch dressing on EVERYTHING. When I told my co-workers at lunch about this, one asked me “Then what will you eat?” because seriously, I eat ranch dressing on….everything! And if you have every looked at the nutrients label on a bottle of ranch, you know how absolutely not healthy it is to eat. So, being that I am a ranch dressing lover, this is going to be tough. I am hoping that through this challenge I can find other ways to eat the things I usually eat with ranch, and I won’t eat so much of it in the future. I will never give up ranch completely and light ranch is gross and out of the question, but I know it is one of the superbad things I eat and I would like to cut it down substantially. Any suggestions for substitutes?? (Note: I don’t really like ketchup and I hate mayo.) What small thing would be a BIG thing for you to give up?
