Nice day! Transplanted more daffodils and then we got a spring shower to water them.
Bess, I think you got your exercise in! . . . and I was so proud of my 2 mile walk--but only one. lol Enough for me at this stage. I got a shovel workout today for a couple hours, then did some squats, weight lifting, etc. for about a half hour.
When I started out, before I lost weight, I was so out of shape with aches and pains setting in, I almost quit doing anything. It was just too painful. Since loosing weight I am inching my way up on the exercise ladder. So, anyway you slice it -- 2 miles or 8 miles, it is all good. I don't count on exercise to maintain my weight as much as making me healthy. I did that in the past and when I had a life upset and couldn't exercise coupled with relaxed eating/maintaining mode, my weight piled back on and I just let go and let it happen. Wrong decision! This time I am looking for moderation in eating and exercise--something sustainable that I can live with for the rest of my life. However, I have noticed I am getting more and more motivated to take that extra lap or two around the neighborhood or lift those weights an extra 5 times . . . or transplant flowers.
Wiggle room on my weight! Getting consistent with exercise tipped the scales . . . in a good way~just don't think I need to lose any more--just get firm and fit!
