Well, the challenge starts in 6 days.  I have no idea what that means.  The March issue of Self isn’t on shelves yet, and the secrets of the challenge are under lock and key on the website.  So, I’ll just keep on keepin’ on in my normal routine.

Ahh, yes, my normal routine, what is that?

I’m actually a very active person.  I don’t generally believe in dieting, but I do believe in eating a healthy, socially responsible lifestyle.  I exercise 5 days a week, and eat mostly organic, locally produced foods.  And, I’m currently training for a charity athletic event, namely The American Lung Association Stair Climb, where I will subject myself to a 55-story building that’s in dire need of climbing.  It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it.  Alright, that seems like enough background.

So, this thing is starting in 6 days, I don’t know what it entails yet, but what I do know is my current diet and exercise routine.  Which will be shaken up, I’m sure.  So, why don’t I confess my current habits, so we can all “ooh” and “ahh” over my new and improved habits by the the time the challenge ends in May.

Okay, here’s my daily confessional:

Breakfast: whole wheat english muffin with plum-cherry jam, and a cup of coffee with milk and sugar.
Snack: Orange
Lunch: Whole wheat lavash wrap, with tuna in reduced-fat mayo, with salad  mix.  1/2 cup vegan corn chowder, and baby carrots
Dinner: It’s 10pm, I’m debating whether dinner is really an option I want to explore.  I think I glass of milk might have to suffice.

Exercise: 90 minutes of Bikram Yoga.

Note: I was supposed to run today as well, but when I got to the gym I realized I’d left my sports bra at home.  Although the thought did cross my mind to just carry on in my handy-dandy push-up bra,  the elasticity of my breasts got the better of me.   I’d like them to stay where they are for as long as possible.  I guess this means a make-up run tomorrow.
