Daily Desk notes:
Fill up on fiber. Found in fruits, veggies, whole grains, beans and nuts, fiber will keep you fuller longer and reduce your risk of a variety of diseases. Gradually increase your daily intake to 25-35 grams for best results.
Spring has sprung, so now it's time for some Spring cleaning. Maybe dusting and organizing clutter is not the most exciting way to spend your weekend, but you'll feel so much better you'll feel when it is all done. Go ahead and clean out your closet, dust under your bed and on top of the fridge, vacuum your mattress to get rid of dust mites, and open up the windows to get some fresh air circulating. A huge plus is you'll also be burning some major calories too. To find out how many read more.

I walked 2.6 miles in 53 minutes this morning. It was warm but I kept on walking.
I did boot camp day 3 video dumb bell workout, a lower body workout, extra dumb bell workout, crunches, a couple minutes of jumprope, 10 minutes of a challenge exercise and 5 minutes on the treadmill. PHEW, that felt good!
The Yankees won again yesterday! 4 home runs in the game! Woo Hoo! The regular season starts on Monday! YAY YAY YAY, it's been a looooooong winter.
Tomorrow is another round at the dentist of the deep gum cleaning so it will be broth again for supper.
Woo Hoo! The Yankees won the first game in the new Stadium! They beat the Cubs in an exhibition game! Hopefully I'll be able to watch the game on the MLB video tonight.
Gotta go back to the dentist today so he can either pull my teeth or do a root canal. I hope the infection is gone anyway so he can do something.
Today's SparkPeople Daily Desk note is:
Spread the Spark to others by living as an example. Use positive peer pressure by practicing healthy habits in front of others, and they'll be more likely to do the same!
I did a 64 minute 3.3 mile walk this morning! Woo Hoo! It was warm but I kept on walking.
TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT! The Yankees play their first game in the NEW YANKEE STADIUM! It's only an exhibition game but it's the first one! Too bad it's not on till 2AM MY time otherwise I would watch it on my MLB TV.
From the 2009 SparkPeople Day At A Glance desk calendar:
Pump Iron. Strength training 3 timer per week can build lean muscle, cut your diabetes risk, prevent depression, reduce your risk of stroke by 40%, and strengthen your bones. Try bands, dumbbells, boyd weight or machines.
Today is our weekend, like Sunday in the real world. I'm doing laundry and will get upstairs to do my Strength training and walking video in a few minutes.
