I know - such an exciting title! Rather apropos for a Monday!
I walked 2.75 miles today and concentrated on using my arms and proper foot movement. I am attempting to walk that every morning plus another 1.3 mile walk in the evenings with my husband. The evening walk is more leisurely than exercise but it's good for my mental health and gives us some time together without the kids.
I started keeping track of my food last week and was really surprised when I read the overall report. I thought we were eating pretty healthy but over 50% is carbs. I function better when I have more protein, fruits and veggies than carbs throughout the day. My eyeballing it just isn't working so I'm going to have to break out the measuring equipment. Hope my boys don't mind sharing their Science scale with me! LoL
Time to go get some lunch. Chicken and broccoli is on the menu. Hopefully I can resist the mac and cheese that the boys made to go with their lunch.
