    I like to take my dog for a walk. We take her to work with us and she makes sure we take her out every morning, afternoon and before we leave to go home.

    Kickboxing, although if I was ever able to go back to it, nothing beats the adrenalin rush of paintball!! Was so much fun -bad knees (now replaced) and bad hands (nothing can be done with them) is all that prevents me from going back to it.

    Walking is my favorite. Walking down wooded paths with my camera enjoying the sounds and feeling of nature. Doesn't burn many calories but is healthy.

    Spring - watching the earth come back to life after a long winter. Seeing all my flowers emerge - Fall is my second. But I do love summer! emoticon

    I love the fall best, too. The weather is cooler and there is less humidity. I love the crisp air, the beautiful leaves but not the shorter days.

Saturday, August 28, 2010

My easiest drink to overcome was soda. Though i grew up with soda "POP' --is what we called it,when I needed to lose the weight ,those calories were the first to go! The HARDEST to overcome is ICE CREAM! Though I like the frozen yogurt and substitute it regularly, the ice cream , ice cream bars are just the dessert I always liked as a kid and still do!!! What
What is your EASIEST? What is your HARDEST FOOD/DRINK to overcome? emoticon emoticon

    The hardest foods for me to overcome would be pizza and cheesecake. The hardest drink would be latte's and pepsi. It was easier for me to give up the soda and the latte's then it has been for me to give up the pizza. emoticon emoticon

    Easiest: Alcohol (I was surprised that it was so easy! I still have one drink every now and then, but only about once every few weeks.)

Hardest: Cheese. (I haven't given it up totally, but have to be really careful with it :)

    Well, the hardest is an easy question. For me, chocolate candy is definitely the hardest substance to eat in the proper portion. Peanut butter, especially crunch PB, is probably the second hardest. Sometimes I do just fine with either or both, but if I'm hungry and tired and they are there, I have to be very, very careful. Although it has little impact on my weight, artificial sweeteners (Splenda) is hard for me to limit to the recommended amount.

The easiest good habit for me was making sure I get my 5 fruits and veggies. I usually get 10 or 11 servings. I don't think there is anything I gave up altogether to accomplish my weight goal.

    Thats a good question.. This time around I went into this with stuborn determination.. so I gave up my bags of chocolate.. cookies.. crackers...and it hasn't been that hard even though those were in my daily diet.. I guess deep fried food has been the hardest.. we are huge fish n chips fans we actually rate a resturant by how well they make it..lol.. I still have it but I get a salad and only 1 pc of fish.. our fav resturant has a fish and salad plate.. just for us who are trying to eat better, even so its hard to resist all southern fried food.. the easiest I guess would have to be the first few foods I mention because I refuse to go back to that way of eating.. I had zero energy.. I felt fat and lazy because of all the empty carbs.. I was also very emotional.. I could cry at the drop of a dime.. and thats gone now too..
good blog Betsy got me thinking first thing in the morning...

    EASIEST would probably have to be soda as well. I made the switch to diet 2 years ago with not much trouble. Now if i needed to stop it altogether, i don't think i'd have too much of a hard time.

My HARDEST would absolutely be potato chips. I am totally and utterly addicted to these little bites of heaven... I have always loved them and tried to cut them out of my diet more time than i can remember since a very young age. I will often have chips for breakfast, spoil a meal because i was too much in a hurry to wait for the main course to be ready, I'll even talk myself into buying it at the store, giving me excuses why i should. It's pathetic.

    FL is hot down here and muggy. If you have AC stay inside, if not you and your DS go to a local pool and swim. It helps down here.

    Well, my AC has been out all summer here in Texas, where it's roughly 14 degrees hotter than the surface of the sun, so my daughter and I have been spending lots of time with a double ziplock freezer bag full of ice stuffed down our shirts.

And then once we go to bed, we balance the bag on the top of our head. It's worked so far!!!
