Thank you so much SarahG54...we have a lot of fun and they help me to get in a lot of my workout time. :) Sort of feel like I'm cheating a lil bit cos I can work and workout at the same time.

I have a huge yard so we go out and throw the frisbee, kick the giant soccer ball that I have or play baseball with the giant bat and ball. I have as much, if not more fun than they do.

I love doing daycare in my home (course I love naptime too heehee) and shopping at Aldi helps me keep the expenses down.

If it is to be, it is up to me!

Welcome to the team, unsure! We're always glad to have more Aldi's shoppers around! I look forward to shopping at Aldi's, there's almost a camaraderie, like we're a secret club of people who know how to find the best deal in town.

Kamel, I love your story about taking the daycare kids for a walk. You're teaching them healthy behavior by words and actions - that's wonderful! We need more people like you, so that our next generation won't be as overweight as we are! If my husband and I ever have children, I want them to grow up with healthy habits, and not just me saying "go play outside, eat your vegetables" but doing it with them, showing them how important I think it is. Thanks for that moment of inspiration!

Hello Unsure and welcome!

I too am limited to what I can do for exercise, as I have fibromyalgia, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis and
degenerative disc disease. I walked with a cane for quite some time until I had arthroscopic knee surgery a couple of years ago and that helped quite a bit. I used to need 2 canes to walk up stairs and now I don't use any, thank God. Time will tell if the arthritis in my knees will take its toll to where I will need replacements.
I really have lost quite a bit of weight eating healthy using the foods from Aldi's - their produce
can't be beat! I make stir fry's using the boneless
chicken breast and their fresh onions and red and yellow peppers with minced garlic(in olive oil) - so
delicious and good for you. Sometimes I use the frozen baby green beans and partially cook them in the microwave first and then add some of the unsalted
Fit & Active Unsalted Almonds to the stir fry to let
them brown. YUM!
I'd love to have yours or anybody else's ideas for stir fry's or other easy dinners they've come up with from ingredients from Aldi's.

Blessings,
Sandy

Welcome unsure...very glad that you've joined us. We've been a little quiet lately, and new people tend to get conversations going again.

I'm Kath...also a wife, mom and gramma.

I admire you're stick-to-it'veness (okay, I know thats not a word) and your determination to keep on moving.

This morning I took 4 daycare children for a walk and one of them asked me why we always go walking. I told him that it will help to keep me from getting old...his response was that I am old. lol I told him I don't want my body to feel old and walking is good for my heart....and their hearts too. He liked that. I'm going to remember that conversation for a long time. Oh and of course to a 5 year old I am old, but I sure don't feel it!

Anyway, again welcome...enjoy the team...make your day Sparkle....kath

If it is to be, it is up to me!
