New leaf.

Thursday, October 04, 2012

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! emoticon I have also lifted weights for the first time in a long time yesterday and today. Just 10 lb. dumbbells. emoticon

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!

    Hope you had fun! My weakness at the fairs is the funnel cakes - haven't been in ages so that's probably a good thing!!

    You are moving in the right direction. Walking is basically the only exercise I get during the summer months, aside from yard work -- and it works! There is also a lot you can do with the weights.

Have lots of fun at the fair -- and think of all the walking you will get in while there!
Hugs, Eve

    eww if it's mayo based I wouldn't want it either. I make my tzatziki with fat free yogurt though

    Wait, isn't the tzaziki yogurt-based? Maybe not at the fair, but...
