I haven't had much time to blog lately or track food and exercise on Sparkpeople. Even though I have not had time to track, I have been eating sensibly. I am exercising more. I wear my pedometer and it keeps up with my steps. It keeps the reading for 7 days. Saturday, I had over 8000 steps by 3pm, a new high for me for the weekend. Even a a busy day on Saturday, I usually don't walk but 4000 steps. Today, I walked 10,745 steps. It is amazing how exercising can change your perspective. I was just thinking I had a wonderful day. However, a day like this in the past without exercise would have been a horrible day. It was a hectic and stressful day at work. It seems like the more I exercise the more energy I have. Days when I don't exercise. I come home from work tired and I don't to anything. Today, when I got home, I grilled turkey burgers and baby carrots. I create a new recipe for my turkey burgers which I named Salsa Burgers. I had energy to chop jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes very fine. I have now lost 11 pounds. The weight is coming off slowly. I am not in a rush ' cause I want to learn to eat better and take care of my body.
