When I was a child, I wasn’t very good at finishing the things I started.
If I fell during ice skating lessons, I never wanted to go again.
If I didn’t feel like going to dance class, my parents pulled me out.
I quit the field hockey team mid-season during my senior year of high school and I changed majors about fifteen times in college before settling on two.
Since it’s been two weeks since my last Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge, some of you might have thought that after an embarrassing attempt at hearth baking I decided to throw in the towel.
The truth is, I’m over not finishing what I start.
I’m going to see this challenge through, even when my photos are less-than-stellar, like in Artos: Greek Celebration Bread or when the my bread turns out inedible and I have to resort to store-bought, such as my French bread.
Now, in addition to the bread baking challenge, I’ve signed on to another, albeit informal challenge with two of my blog friends.
Over the past few months, I’ve let my workout habits slide a little (I’m only a little suspicious that that my lack of exercise is indirectly proportional to the amount of bread that I’m baking).
So, along with Denise from Chez Us and Joy from Gourmeted, I am taking the Couch to 5K challenge (since I have run short distances before I’m following the aggressive plan to get back into shape). We’re keeping tabs on each other via Twitter and I’ve been keeping up with the Couch to 5K (C25K) hashtag to see what some of the other newbie runners are up to.
Plus, if I’m running more, I can eat all the bread I want, right? Check back next week for my attempt at Kaiser Rolls and follow me on Twitter for more Couch to 5K updates!
