Short term Goals: Week #1 Drink 8 glasses of water each day. Walk 6 miles per week on the treadmill/road 1 hour of water aerobics x 2 times this week. 30 day plan is to be consistant with meals/water and exercise.
I want to walk on the treadmill and go to water aerobics. Eating clean is my goal and keeping white starch and sugar out of my diet.
I live in Northern Minnesota. Love to garden Let me know if your on Face Book. I also want you to know that I quit smoking on 1-23-2012. I live by the quote "Not One Puff Ever".
Sharing a quote: The scale is only a guide. If you stayed within your calorie range, you did not deposit any new fat on your body. Tell yourself that the scale can sometimes hold on to extra water, leading you to think that you are not making any progress. Before you go to bed, pat yourself on the back and tell yourself, "I stayed within my calorie range today; therefore I did not gain any fat." Tell yourself that and stay on plan.
Hey Dee, I cannot tell you how rough this last month has been for my Mom. Will message you later, or email you or something to catch you up on all. Hugs to you! Thanks for your prayers during this difficult time! Love you friend!
To answer what is new my way: Just living here in Central Mexico. Trying to keep busy with Etsy and selling mycrochet items. Of course the normal family duties, kids in school. Husband to care for. (He is fine, just spoiled. ) We are trying to get our finances ready for a possible return trip to the US in 2016. We will see. There are benefits in both countries, so we don't know for sure yet. Just hanging out and surviving. Hope that you are well. I was very sick with many different things since last November, but I am well now! (knock on wood!lol) Thanks for keeping in touch, I enjoy it!
The race on May 16 sounds great! But you are right, you should not push yourself too hard since you could not use the treadmill for months after the last time. I am learing how to take it easy when I need to too. Hope the training goes well! Thanks so much for the goodie!
