I think I have finally turned a corner: I have started exercising. This week, I have exercise 3 or 4 days for at least 20 minutes. I just went for a walk. It was glorious to watch the dark turn to dawn. I walked very briskly for me, and even did a couple minutes of jogging!
I have also lifted weights for the first time in a long time yesterday and today. Just 10 lb. dumbbells.
I am going to a greenhouse today and going to buy some hardy mums to plant around my porch! I love love love fall. The air smelled so good this morning, and it was beautiful with a thin fog floating in the air, making everything seem magical.
I am going to the fair tonight and my mom is invariably going to try and get me to eat something from there. Fair food is not healthy. However, I think I am going to eat a gyro. I looked it up in the tracker and it is 600-some calories. I fit it into my plan for the day. I am not going to get the cucumber sauce to save some calories in case that calorie count was wrong. I picked the one with the highest calories, though. I know those gyros with the cucumber sauce can really pack a calorie punch! Of course the sauce is *yogurt based...and they don't use light *yogurt! I am really looking forward to going, though. I will be going with my hub and my mom and step dad.
Hope you all have a great day!
