Number 1...

I was hoping that number one of the 101 new items might be life altering...but I'm not so much. But part of this challenge is not censoring my experiences but instead just taking them as they come. So...the first "new experience" happened in the middle of another busy Christmas shopping day.

I stopped by Subway to have lunch and found myself confused about what to order. I have been working really hard on my diet and exercise so I can be a hottie (remember)! So there I stood staring at the menu trying to figure out how to eat healthy. I usually eat either a veggie or sometimes even the tuna sandwich. And there are a few crazy moments when I splurge and have a the spicy sandwich. But today I decided to try something that has never been ordered by me before! I had a turkey sandwich. Can you believe it!

Okay...I know that this i not exactly what any of us expected but it's step one. I never order turkey slices...EVER! It's a texture issue for me and one that honestly controls where I can eat. So today I decided it was time to just try it and see what happened. I survived. It was okay, not great, but okay and something that I could do again.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that number two is a little more exciting.

Baby steps. And besides it's way better for you than that tuna stuff with all the mayo.
Several years ago my friends and I decided we would spend the year trying things we had never done before - it was really fun - here are soem of the things I remember:
-we went to bingo at the local VFW
-went out drinking at a nasty looking dive bar we always drove by and made fun of
-we tried on dresses at a really fancy store where we couldn't afford to buy anything
-ordered anchovies on pizza - we did silly little things like that.
