I am getting to the point that if I don't work out, I don't feel right. Yay!
I'm using the Spark Activity Tracker (pedometer) and it tracks my dvd workouts at about 1500 steps but when I input that it was a cardio workout, it ups my steps to about 4000. Now, adding in another walk outside or a couple of 10-minute Spark workouts, I hit my 5000 step goal pretty easy. Soooooo....I must take a deep breath and today up my steps goal to 6000 a day. I plan on this for a week, then up it again. My weight is going down very, very slowly but my diet is changing pretty slowly. The sweet tooth is under control but vegetables still need to be more a part of my life. My mom never cooked vegetables except for canned corn and canned green beans. Can I still blame her even though I'm in my 60's ????
I made some frozen butternut squash last night and could only swallow 3 bites. At least I tried but that's not good enough to count as a vegetable serving. (Plus I put brown sugar and cinnamon trying to disguise it.) Any favorite vegetable ideas out there?
