I took an hour walk today with a pedometer. I walked over 10,000 steps! That is good news! Now I am going to track my daily steps on the Fitness Tracker. It is fun to find a new way to get fit. I am curious to see how many steps I take at work with the pedometer on.
I will continue my super day by making some Easter SparkRecipes in preparation for the big, healthy meal tomorrow. My son is coming tonight and I am excited.
Today was a nostalgic day. We saw old friends from over 30 years ago. The couple came to see us on their vacation and catch up on old times. We all used to live in Italy. We had our babies in the same week and have many memories to share. Our babies are turning 30 this year! We all look younger and better of course. We did discuss healthy eating choices over an Italian lunch. It made my day to see our friends again. Life is short and it is friendships that make it last longer.
My son is coming to visit for Easter. I am excited! I bought the ingredients for a Spark Easter dinner today. I am using the recipes from SparkRecipes.com. I hope he likes it even though he doesn't need to lose weight! It will be a guaranteed healthy meal.
I also bought a bouquet of spring flowers for the living room and a basil leaf plant. I will cut the fresh basil leaves when I an cooking. I am feeling Italian...even though I am not. I live in Italy and the food is so fresh. They only sell fruits and vegetables that are in season at the grocery store. So we eat what they sell...the Spark way.

It is Spring Break and the sun is shining. I got up this morning with time on my hands. I threw together the ingredients in the crockpot for the SparkPeople recipe for slow cooking lasagne. Then my husband and I took an hour walk, sat in a park in the sunshine, and ate lunch at a local restaurant. Now dinner is waiting for later...it is a wonderful day! It helps that it is finally warm and I could take my coat off!
