YOU CAN'T LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF WITHOUT CHANGING YOURSELF!
I bought new shoes a couple of weeks ago. There is a new store downtown called RUN WITH IT and they specialize in shoes and all types of running gear. Since I signed up with them to do a 5K I decided to get some new shoes. Oh, I had new shoes that I had bought from a discount warehouse and my main purpose was to find ones on sale that fit. I did but when I started walking in them, my toes hit the ends. So I got new shoes and they were about $100, no worse than getting something at Hibbit's Sportswear. Anyway, the store owners look at the way you walk and then prescribe a pair for you with the right cushioning and the right size. So far I like them.
So how are your shoes? Are they all flattened and worn out? Do your feet hurt and you get shin splints? You are supposed to get a new pair every 500 miles. That's about a year for me, at least. You can learn all about shoes and walking at about.com and sign up for a program too. Good info.
I weighed this morning and am firmly at 180!!! Whoo Hoo! I've done well eating the last couple of days and I even walked the dog yesterday. She got really hot so it is time for her spring shave. Last night I had an eggplant to cook so I found a recipe on Spark called Healthy Moussaka by CHUCKLESO719. Man, it was delicious! The spices she added really made the difference. My husband raved and raved about it! I needed more eggplant than the one I had so I added sliced zucchini to it. Worked just as well. And instead of tomato sauce and tomato paste, I used a jar of Healthy Prego spaghetti sauce. But the spices made the difference, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, oregano, pepper. And she also had a Bechamel sauce poured over it. IT was as good or better than the local Greek restaurant!
I kind of dropped out of the run/walk program choosing to walk instead. Twice, my friend Pat and I have walked the 5K route and I'm hoping she will go with me this Saturday for the end game. There are 2 more rehearsals tonight and Thursday and I plan to go. Without this event, I would still be procrastinating!
Got a busy day ahead. A funeral to attend and I'm hoping to make a sale this afternoon. Tomorrow!
