I forgot to track my food yesterday even though I have a notebook in my purse. Work has been very busy and it seems I barely have time for my breaks and I am doing a lot of snacking not having a regular lunch. I am taking an online class about stress and I need to do the lesson today after work. I am sure stress is part of my problem so I need to concentrate on continuing that class. It is offered through my health insurance company and my employer and I have until the end of September to finish it and will be rewarded with a $200 gift certificate (I always chose Target since I shop there a lot) and will be given a $300 reduction in out of pocket exepenses next year on my health insurance. So far this year I earned $75 in certificates for getting my vitamin D tested, having the flu shot and having a dental check-up. It is a program called fittingly, "Be Fit."
Time for my coffee and then 10 minutes on the recumbent bike. I think tomorrow I will get up a half hour earlier and get a short walk in before work, also, since the afternoons have been too muggy and warm to walk. I also plan to go to the pool this afternoon. I did not do much activity yesterday and can feel more stiffness in my knees than usual due to that inactivity.
