I have really!! learned a lesson the past couple of weeks. I have been doing some yard work and spring cleaning. Have been doing my cardio - walking (mostly inside) but have neglected the strength building exercises. And, today I am paying for it!! Big time. When I started, I was amazed at the effect just a few exercises each morning can have on the way I feel during the day - and the flexibility I experienced. Like being able to tie my shoes without a struggle.
And, now I feel like I am right back where I started. So, back to basics!!! Starting today. - - - - - I have been drinking more water - still not enough - and have been taking my calcium and vitamins - still not regularly. I think it is time to make a collage for the front of my fridge. I do not have a problem with my diet. I do love food, but can cut back easily. I love salads and fruit. Right now am on a spinach salad kick , spinach, tomato, red onion, and feta cheese. Yumm, yumm!!
Have unshelled peanuts for a snack at work - I count out ten each morning and that is my limit for the day. If I bought the shelled I would eat tooooo many.
Well, enough rambling for this morning. Just want you newbies to remember to be faithful each day! Some days even a little when you do not feel like it - just to keep up the routine. This is what I have felt in so many of the blogs I have read here. So encouraging.
Lesson learned - so off to do some exercises this morning - even tho it is not scheduled!!
