It has been hot here lately, so an indoor workout is better. Also, my daughter is taking drivers education at the mall for 2 hours a day Monday through Thursday. Therefore, I have been walking the mall. <BR> <BR> At first I didn't like it at all. The smells: pretzels, food court, and those awful stores that spray fragrances that you can smell 2 stores down. The sights: advertisements in store windows showing half dressed people and all the...

Mon, 11 Jul 2011 10:45:19 EST Home again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4351499 I've spent the last week on vacation. We had a great time. <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> When I left, I decided not to use SP at all and just take a week off. Probably not the best idea since I was still in my 2nd week of the program. I knew I would get a lot of exercise, but I didn't want to log all the fitness and nutrition. <BR> <BR> The positives: I drank my 8 glasses of water or more everyday except one. I spent 2 hours hiking on Sleeping Bear Dunes. We walked all over Traverse City.... Sat, 9 Jul 2011 14:51:45 EST June 29 - exercise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4331725 I don't like to exercise. I put it off. Today I waited until it was almost too late. I wanted to just skip it for one day, but I didn't want to ruin my spark streak. I went for a walk and did my core strength training. I didn't walk as far as I have been, but I did walk. The thing is, when I get done exercising I feel better about myself. <em>34</em> <em>311</em> <em>30</em> Wed, 29 Jun 2011 22:48:01 EST Beginning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4326404 I first heard about Sparkpeople last week. I was ready to do something about my health and hope this is going to help. So far things are going pretty well. I want this to work, but I'm learning to cut myself a little slack. <BR> <BR> Day 3 is always hardest for me. My enthusiasm is down and I usually give in to a food temptation that I have been eliminating from my diet. From reading other blogs and sparkpages, I realized that I can have those foods in moderation. I've known this, bu... Mon, 27 Jun 2011 16:44:23 EST
