    I have spent hours (3-4 hours each time) working at my grandmother's house to clean up the yard and place it on the market. It was so cold the first time I went up that I wore 5 layers, but an hour or so into it, I was down to 2! Even though the temp was in the 40s, I was sweating, and I was so tired (and the next day quite sore) that I knew I'd exercised! Definitely, count gardening and yard work as exercise!

    yes i do and apparently so does sparlpeople because if you do a search it will come up just remember to keep track of the time you are working and how intense it was. they even count heavy cleaning which is what i do once o week in my house lol

Anyone else watching Jamie Oliver's "Food Revolution"

Sunday, April 25, 2010

I have almost become obsessed with it, I do like it and would like to see it work. Makes me think of what I can do in my community to improve the habits eating and exercise. To be a positive role model.

    I love it! I missed the last episode so I'll have to catch it online. I wasn't aware how unhealthy school food was until I stared working in the school system. It really is sad that we fight to beat childhood obesity and then feed the kids junk at school. On top of that they don't get P.E. everyday like when I was in school.

    I watch this on Hulu; shorter commercials! :) Anyway it's a great show! For a Brit, he puts up with a lot of crap from us, which is weird because he could have boarded the plane and gone home anytime!

The show isn't about loosing weight, per se, but about eating healthy and staying active, which will lead to weight loss slowly and safely.

For those that haven't seen it, give it a shot. If you want to see it with less commercials, the episodes can be found on Hulu.

I'm like you though, I would like to see this work.

    I've been watching it, and have decided that one of my rewards when I hit a goal will be one of his cookbooks. I'd love to get one right now, but I know he cooks with butter & cream, and I REALLY want to lose another 15-20 lbs before I start cooking that kind of stuff.

I think it's amazing that so many people in one community eat the same things! Can you imagine what being in one of those grocery stores could be like? Do they have extra aisles of frozen foods, a smaller selection of fresh produce, more prepared meals and fewer whole foods? I know there must be healthy people there buying the "good" stuff, but stores cater to the demand, so it would be interesting to see.

I'm trying to be a positive role model just where I work. I pack healthy lunches every day, and I try to get a walk in at lunch or during breaks. I also wear a pedometer, so everyone knows that I'm trying to get my 10,000 steps in each day. Do what you can with what you have!

  Your weather sounds just like ours here in Richmond, VA. Maybe that's where you are or at least nearby.

Whose with me, I dont want my weekend to end?!

Sunday, April 18, 2010

I am so ready for a weekend that I don't have anything planned. My last 3 weekends have been so busy, I go back to work on Monday morning behind. I told my husband that I will not leave my town next weekend, I will leave my house to go out to eat and church at least one day. Dont get me wrong, love my weekends but they havent been mine forever.
