Spring & New Beginnings..........
...

Sunday, April 07, 2013

Early April and spring is finally making an appearance here on the "east coast" of Ohio. The daffodils and crocuses have been up for a couple weeks and now my maple trees are budding. The lilies and peonies are poking up and there's a robin in my backyard who is feasting on the berries from my "cardinal candy" bush :) After this long winter, mother nature is finally starting to behave herself.

I'm slowly making a comeback to spark; I forgot how hard it is to be accountable with my calories and my exercise. I've rarely had a problem with my water intake, because that's pretty much all I ever drink. And the worst/best part of this is that I retired on January 31st. The worst part is that I am nowhere near as active as I was when I was working, since I had a job which kept me on my feet all day, walking, lifting, pushing, pulling, etc. The best part is that I now have an extra 9-10 hours a day that I can use for exercise and meal planning!

So, here's to spring and to new beginnings!

    Congratulations on your Retirement. emoticon

    Now it's time to make a plan. Write down how often you want to exercise and strength train and stick to it. After a while it will be automatic. I've been walking just about every day and I strength train 3 times a week. I feel like I'm missing something if I don't get the chance to do either of those.
