I had decided that I really didn't want to exercise today. It's Saturday, it's August, it's summer, it's...I just didn't want to. But then I thought, if I don't I'm letting down my Team that I just joined the Official 10-Minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge.
So up I got put on my exercise clothes, and shoes. I got out my mini-stepper and off I went and then I did my stretching. So here I sit all sweaty writing my blog, what keeps me motivated is the commitments I make not only to myself but to my team mates. If my commitments to myself doesn't keep going, it is good to know that my commitments to my fellow team mates does get me up and moving.

I was just reading the Slowest Loser blog for the week about how Wall Street(big business) is making us fat and of course more in debt. At the end he asked how do you keep yourself from wanting and buying more.
Well for one thing money, or the lack there of. Mostly those my big longing is usually for books, so library sales, yards sales, Walmart, and occasional splurges.
But to point of this, recently Arby has been advertising a banana split in cup shake, this sounded good to me. I didn't go and buy one but I did make a smoothie with this idea. I already make a protein smoothie with chocolate(cocoa, and sugar-free chocolate syrup), and frozen bananas, yogurt, and a little skim milk. So I added a few frozen strawberries to this, and it did remind of banana split. You know the taste from when you were a kid or adult when no one looking of sipping the last of your melted banana split. So if you have been seeing the ad for a banana split in cup shake and wanting to try it, try this instead.

Recently in one the threads there was a question about what causes you to overeat or go off track. People listed things like stress, late night eating, family occasions... I kept saying while I was reading, I no longer did that or that or that; and I was feeling pretty good about it. Hubris, the gods will put you in your place. Usually flat on you butt in the mud.
I exercised like normally do and then went off to the store. As I was getting on the bus the driver had to put hand out to stabilize me, I had not had that happen in while but I really didn't think anything of it. As I was walking through the store my leg started to act up along with my back. I found a bench, I know where they all are, and rested for a bit. When back to the shopping, had to rest again, very unusual for me. The third time I had to rest the pain was getting worse instead of easy up. I decided to get what I just had to have a get home. Unfortunately one of my trips was down the frozen food section. The chocolate ice cream with fudge just leaped out and attacked me. When I got home took something for the pain and payed the ice cream back by attacking the ice cream back. When I was done attacking, it was an empty shell of itself. I would like to say it was pint, but I won't lie. Ugh, and double ugh.
Tomorrow though is another day and I will return to the straight and narrow and listen a bit harder to leg, I will not ignore and just hope it will goes away. Which is usually what I do.
By the way I'm seeing a doctor for it. I broke by femur two years ago and it still hasn't healed. I'm using a bone growth stimulator and there is improvement in it, but obviously not as much as I would like.

Since I tried raspberry iced tea many years ago I've loved it. I truly hate to think about the about of calories in, since it never requires sweeteners. I missed it when I changed my eating habits, I had even give up Zero Coke in for water, green tea, and herb tea. One day last month I was stand in the store looking at the tea and a light bulb went off in my head; raspberry zinger and green tea together might be a good sub for my beloved raspberry tea.
Of course, I bought the raspberry zinger and tried it that night. I drink out of huge mug(helps getting in those glasses of water you need), so I tried it and it worked. After trying it various ways, I found for my taste that for 6 cups of water(which is what my mug holds) I use two green tea bag and one raspberry zinger bag plus two packets of equal sweetener. If your a lover of raspberry tea you should try this. Of course now I'm trying the other zingers in similar mixes. I really like the lemon zinger and green tea mixed.
Oh I shared a recipe for chicken salad with apple and lime, it is very tasty, try it. It also works well with grapes, I use about cup and half of grapes when I use them, I didn't state this at the end of the recipe because it was factored in the calorie count.
