Perfect 10 Update #2

Here's another update for the Perfect 10 Challenge.

My Perfect 10 Goals Are:
  1. Complete the Couch to 5K program. YES - I finished week 2 yesterday! Go me! I'm excited about how this is going, even though there was a day I didn't want to jog. I felt better once I just did it.
  2. Drink 6-8, 8 oz. glasses of water daily. Yes - At least 6, usually 8 every day!
  3. Adjust my eating to see weight loss. Yes - Now, I was going to put this in yellow, because I had a few times this week that I know I ate beyond full or when I wasn't really hungry. However, with such a nice loss showing up I guess I should take it and enjoy it, right?
So, I guess green is the color this week for my goals. Let's see if I can make it stay this way. :)

As for the little tidbit on me....

I speak Spanish fluently, but I am of English, German, Irish and Scotch descent. I took Spanish from eighth grade through my junior year of high school and then was a T/A in a Spanish one class half of my senior year.

I first heard the language as a little girl with some Puerto Rican friends I had then and fell in love. Then I saw West Side Story when I was about thirteen years old and fell in love some more with the language.

To top it off...I fell in love and married a handsome mexican young man, who was impressed I could pronounce his name correctly. So, now I have a spanish last name, but I'm white as white can be. :)


  1. Congtrats on the P10 Leah! That is one language I really want to learn and planning on purchasing the learning DVDs from Rosetta Stone soon - they are expensive though. I love the sound the language and we go to Mazatlan every May - it would be nice to talk more freely with everyone we know there.

    Here's to a sucessful 3rd week!

  2. We have something in common. I learned Spanish when I studied abroad and dated someone for quite a long time there. I teach English as a Second language classes now, so I am able to communicate with the parents. I love the language!!

  3. What an awesome week!!! I bet you really threw your husband for a loop when you first met him.

    BTW, great job on the M&M loss! :-) I'll bet you could easily sell books on that diet plan. :-)
