Fitness Update:
10minutes to 10K
This is a short clip of the bike route with my children. It also happens to be the same path I took for my First 10 minute walk.

Today I did my 5K Walk
(This flower is EVERYWHERE and it smells fantastic. She's named Queen Anne's Lace)

following this route and then I did 5K of biking with my children. It's beautiful the physical fitness growth I've seen over the last year. I went from 10minutes/day to 10K.

This is another beautiful treasure I see on my journey it's a Sumac Tree. My mother calls it, "Mic-Mac". I have no idea why. I think she takes gross satisfaction in slaughtering the english language (now you know where I get it from).

Neutron Update:
I'm struggling with intake again. I have this mindset that I've "made" it and now I can relax. I've only proved to myself how much I still need to be here. I still have a horrid perspective on portions.

Doritos have snuck into my house, but, Water Wedgie ...

has been stepping in with the warning, "When in doubt WAIT it out."
When I listen (ahem), my Fake Hunger pains subside and I can stay on track.

I've gotten to (real close) where I want to be and I have to wake up to the reality that I've gotten the active lifestyle I was working for and I need to adjust according being ever more vigilant about what is coming into my stomach.

Hold On! You can do it!!!

OH! This little flame gift always reminds me of a match streaking. Congrats, MOSTMOM1 on your 10 minutes (at least) of Fitness Streak of 500+ Days!

HOLD ON, it's gonna be beautiful after the storm passes. I was not happy about it raining when we first started out, but, we got a rainbow for our efforts. Well played Creator of the Universe.

    Loved this....made me want to go for a bike ride, too. Maybe that will be a goal for the future! I am amazed at the amount of exercise that I am able to do compared to how little I could do 8 months ago, just like you. I was always taught to stay away from the poison sumac....but I love that your Mom calls it Mic Mac... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Loved your video. The cattail beside the road was really neat. The Queen Anne's lace brought back great memories. It is one of the things I miss from the Carolinas. When we were growing up it was everywhere and I always thought it was so beautiful. I haven't seen any here in Texas.

    Do you have a helmet cam? There's no way I could take a video on a bike without crashing. I'm impressed! I had to laugh at the groan Princess gave when you told her to take her feet off the handlebars and that she could do it. I think I gave the groan a lot as child, and unfortnately, I'm hearing it a lot again now that my son is getting a wee bit older and asserting more independence.

    I keep seeing the white flower all over the place here too and had no idea what it was called thank you for giving me it's name.

I found that today when I drank water when I felt "hunger" and then waited it subsided for the most part and I was able to eat my lunch and snacks at the appropriate times instead of just filling my face because I was thirsty not hungry.
