Eating Out

More restaurants have been letting me order from the kid's menu. They will even let me select a nutritious side.

Floor exercises

I would do my intense DVDs first, then I was too tired to do my needed floor ab exercises. Now I do the floor exercises with dumbbells/ankle weights first; drink water and then do a DVD or treadmill.

Watch your foods!

You really have to eat what is good for you. If you eat something unhealthy; it backfires and we gain weight.

Clothes size

I am down to a smaller size, and remain on maintenance. This is a strong motivation to keep me on track with fitness and eating healthy.

Tomorrow is a new day. We can't dwell on the past. It doesn't change things as they are today. Tomorrow is always a new beginning to do the right things that matter to us.
