As week #2 of my Destination: Downtime draws to a close, I've been reflecting on said downtime. It's been an interesting ride. I'm not especially gifted with full-on rest/recovery. I do honor rest and recovery days, but I'm not typically sitting idle in a comfy chair as I do so.
None the less, there's a few things that I have been loving lately. Care to hear of a few of my Friday Favorites?
First of all, I have been resisting candy. There's a good-sized candy dish within arm's reach at my work desk. Although I don't have a weight problem, I really don't need a piece of candy each time I walk by said candy dish. On a whim, I decided to try to go all morning without randomly grabbing a a sugar-laden morsel. Much to my surprise, I made it through the entire day (and evening!) unscathed. It was rather painless, so I tried boycotting candy the next day...and that was successful as well. Knock wood, it's been three days, and I have had ZERO candy and ZERO cravings. I have a horrendous sweet tooth, so this is a major shift in routine for me.
Any random Friday Favorites happening in your world? Have you ever tried to boycott candy? Do you take nearly-complete (almost inactive) rest days? Ever gone plogging (picking up random trash while out on a run)?
I'm also linking this with Meranda and Lacey for the Friday with Fairytales and Fitness link-up.
