Avon Walk Weekly Update

It’s time for my weekly checkin for how my Avon Walk training. If you’d like to see my full training calendar, check it out here or on the left sidebar of my blog.

Thoughts on training so far: I didn’t do very well with my training this week. I had a lot going on and it was hard to get to the gym. But I made a lot of progress on my fundraising. I also talked with my friend A, who is doing the walk with me, and we decided on when we’re coming and going to SF, so that was progress as well.

Miles walked last week: 0
Minutes doing cardio: 66
Minutes doing cross training or weight lifting: 0
Total $$ raised: $795

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far! If you’d like to donate to support my walk, you can make a donation on my Avon Walk page.

And now, I’d like to announce the winner of the cute Avon tote… The winner is a local blogger – Boston Chomper!! Send me your mailing address and I’ll get the tote out to you ASAP.

    Love those cabinet shelves! They look like a great space saver. I’ll have to look into those.

    Shadow – They are part of Pottery Barn’s Daily System. The post coming tomorrow will actually go through how we made the shelf and include a link to the spice jars themselves.

    Thanks for the info about the spice jars! They’re actually $10 off right now too, so you get 15 jars for $19!!!

    Can’t wait to see how you guys set up your shelf.

    Hopefully Hubby doesn’t hear the price went down so much. He about had a heart attack when I told him I was spending $120 on spice jars!

    jenshowme – this is the paper towel holder. It’s a bar that gets attached on one side and has an arm sticking out that the paper towel goes onto.

    Use tiered cosmetic cases!
    They’re absolutely great. You can compartmentalize your things easily everything stays together. =)
