So today I tried a couple new things. First I found a couple exercise videos on Youtube that I wanted to try out. They were Leslie Sansone walking videos from RealAge. They both take 15 minutes and you complete 1 mile in each one. So instead of the exercise bike today I did both videos. I really liked it. They combine a little aerobic activity with the walking so its not boring but its easy enough that I could actually do everything too. After I tried them I emailed the links to my mom so she could try them.
Then, because I'm running out of food in the house I had to get creative again with my supper. I ended up cooking a couple 2 oz. chicken breasts, for my husband & I, and then topped them with some carmelized onions, mushrooms and a little bit of mozzarella. Then served some rice & peas as sides. It was really good. I know its not that creative per se but I'd never made it before so I was pretty happy to have thought of it.
I am struggling to keep drinking 8 cups of water a day. I find myself guzzling water at the end of every day. Makes for a long night... I really like the watermelon water I usually buy but I've been out of it for a couple days & it has really made a difference. Part of the problem, I think, is that while the water bottles & my glasses look the same size, the water bottles actually hold a whole cup more. I think its a lot easier to drink 2 bottles of water instead of 3 1/3 of my glasses. Its amazing how the eyes can deceive the mind.
I almost forgot... Here's the links to the walking videos if anyone is interested.
