The weather is finally warming up enough for me to go on daily walks. The past 3 days I have walked 2 miles each. The first day I walked the entire 2 miles at once, which, was not smart on my part. I was so sore that night I could hardly sleep. So yesterday, me and my beautiful daughter decided to split up our walk and do 1 mile in the morning after breakfast and then 1 mile after dinner. We did another mile this morning and hopefully will do another this evening, even if it means getting the walk in before my husband gets home from work. On Friday nights my husband usually takes us out for dinner and we're not home in time to go walking. I've also been taking a multi-vitamin on a daily basis now for about 2 weeks, and I believe that's been helping my overall energy level. I've notice lately that I haven't been sitting in front of the computer or on the couch as much and I've been more active in my everyday routine. When I'm doing dishes I'll do calf raises, leg raises, squats, and I even use my counter top to do pushups. When I do watch tv or on the computer, I have dumbbells or a 2 pound weighted ball, in my hand doing curls and raises, I'm on my mini-stepper listening to SparkpeopleRadio. I can't sit still for very long lately, which is a good thing because the busier I am, the less I think about food.
