My wife and I were thinking of a better way to celebrate Easter for the kids rather than giving them hordes of chocolate. Normally, we have an Easter egg hunt with little chocolate mini eggs. Because of our new lifestyle change, we decided to go a different route. Instead of having little chocolate eggs, we picked up about 200 plastic eggs and put a 25 cent piece in each one. The kids LOVED it! They made a bunch of money and didn't miss the chocolate at all. Of course we DID buy them a chocolate bunny each but this is the first year we had a significant reduction in chocolate around the house and it's working out well!
She was quite pleased.
I also decided to try my hand at the C25K on the treadmill. I found it was easier than I originally thought. Of course everyone says running on the treadmill is easier than running outside but you have to start small and slowly. I'll keep that up.
I was quite beat by it and learned I have a long way to go before I can do a single unassisted pull up, but oddly enough, I was able to get the push-ups in better than I thought. The lunges seemed easy when I started them, but after two sets... Ow. LOL.
