If I could share one piece of advice I would say create groupings. Groupings allow you to:
--Enter food quickly into your menu for the day
--It then becomes a recipe for future meals
--Doing so just makes life easier

    Here our high will be 72 and I am going walking, hitting parks, open air malls, farmer's markets. I am on a mission to get a lot of steps in. Eating well and hitting BJ's last to pick up healthy food and maybe something just for me too. No food, maybe yoga pants, health book something positive and health helpful!
    You my sweet dear friend have a Terrific Thursday!

    We are on track and working with Him emoticon

    I was up most of the night watching the election. I love our country and watching everything that affects our lives through our leaders.
    I know God has a plan for our country too, and the bigger picture we have to trust to Him. I will continue to support and pray for our leaders and stay positive and never allowing the negative world in. I get excited knowing He is the true Commander and Chief. I loved it that our president mentioned God in his speech several times.
    I may have to take a nap today LOL

    Have a great day being a Wednesday Warrior for your health and happiness! You are an amazing warrior! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good for you! Have you found a local group you can train with? Also, recommend finding and registering for a race that will fall at the end of your C25k training. Believe, you can do it. My Mom completed her first 5k age 60 and did her first Half Marathon this year at age 71. She walked it, but she finished. So I know you can do it! As soon as you get those inserts, find a 5k 9 weeks out and register for it! I'll be cheering for you! - Tia
