I'm in an Exercise Slump

Thursday, October 18, 2012

It all started last week when an early morning doctor's appointment got in the way of my "crack-of-dawn" walk. If I don't walk early in the morning, I don't walk because it's still in the high 90's here in deep, south Texas. I tried an evening walk Sunday. It was still very warm out (85) and I didn't enjoy it as much as my morning walks, but it was doable and better than nothing. (I should keep that in mind for tonight!) Once I skipped Thursday's walk, I skipped Thursday's 10 minute strength training. And on it went. It's gone on too far! It's time to dig myself out of this rut! Right now, this moment, I pledge to workout today and not wait another moment! Right now, I'm going to do a bootcamp video emoticon and I pledge to walk again this evening. emoticon I've let my goal of sleeping 8 hours and getting up at 4 am EVERYDAY (including weekends) go by the wayside. I've gotten lazy! No more. I'm joining the Better Sleep Challenge. emoticon I know I can do this! So glad I wrote this blog! I found my motivation. Thank you SP! emoticon Thank You Jesus! emoticon

My Husband is Asking for Green Smoothies

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

I think I'm sparking my husband. Yesterday he got us some oranges and grapes from the fruit man and asked me to make him a green smoothie! I couldn't believe it! He's a meat and potatoes sort of guy and his desire for fresh fruits and vegetables surprised me. I ran to the market and got some spinach and am planning a green protein smoothie today for lunch. He's also walking with me in the mornings. He used to just come and watch over me. He's following the 5K Your Way training program for walkers. Hopefully in 5 weeks he'll be ready to race. He'll just miss the Trick or Treat Trot which I am doing. But I don't have to do it alone - he'll be there cheering me on as he does every morning. It sure is nice having a buddy to share my journey with.

    It is so much easier when your spouse is going along with your on all your healthy changes. I even have my son's occasionally asking for green smoothies and my middle son (22) started eating more healthy and exercising regularly, too.

Way to go!

    It is always nice to have a buddy to do things with. Especially nice that it is your husband. My husband is on a medically supervised diet and moving now into regular foods. It is nice that we are both dieting together. We are also exercising together and it is fun.

Another Perfect Nutrition Day

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

My perfect nutrition days are few and far between. I get excited when I have a day where I eat within all my nutritional goals. Today, I had to watch my portion of marinara sauce because I was too high with my sodium intake. I tweaked my portion so that I could stay within goal. This prompted me to look for a SparkRecipe for low-sodium marinara sauce. I did find a few, but they used no sodium tomatoes and sauce and I can't get those here in the small town I live in. I'd like to make it from scratch using fresh tomatoes but I cook by recipe and couldn't find one. Maybe by the next time I make spaghetti, I'll find a good low-sodium, fresh tomato sauce. Any ideas?

    This looks interesting


You could leave out that 1/4 tsp of salt.

  I live in a very small town, too. I have to buy low sodium when I do make a trip to a bigger town (about once a month) so I try to buy that I need then.
