It’s been two weeks since Mission Quantum Leap kicked off and Ethne has informed me that I better get my butt in gear, because WE WILL BE GOING SOMEWHERE WARM over Thanksgiving! And I can’t let my Ethne down! Or myself down. This body needs to Quantum Leap back to 1996.
So here is an update on how it has been going. I am feeling good and feeling thin (I tell my speech students to positive self-talk all the time) and I think it is important to tell myself “I am looking good.”
|One of my go-to snacks!|
Our major goals included eating five servings of fruits and veggies (have I hit five? Not sure, but I can tell you that I am eating a lot more veggies than pre-leap!). I have been drinking more water and have upped the intake.

Another great thing that happened is that I found a STEAL on slim fast shakes. That’s right—I found them for $2.00 a six pack which is about a $4.00 savings. Granted they were almost expired, but they are for sure doing the trick for Steve and I.

As far as working out…I haven’t reached my total goal of three times a week. However, I have incorporated mall walkin’ into my routine. My girlfriend Danica and I are hitting the mall hard and loving it. The added bonus is that Mur-Man likes to mall walk too. Yes, I am a mall walker!
|Yes...we are grooving!|
I am ready to start week three of Mission Quantum Leap. There will be more Leap Days coming up…so be on the lookout.
PS: Steve is looking more and more like Scott Bakula every day!
