5% Challenge Day 31

Monday, November 04, 2019

Monday and the start of a new week! I'm not being very successful with portion control or nutrition tracking. I have an stubborn resistance to it during this challenge.

I am better with drinking water than I used to be during the colder seasons. I count that as a success - perhaps some time I'll actually enjoy drinking water.

I really look forward to my PBS exercise programs now, and this month our station has scheduled two in a row at noon. My latest aspiration is to develop the long lean muscles of Miranda Edmond White. (As if I could look like a former ballerina! emoticon ) But I feel good knowing that I'm regaining my flexibility and strength albeit slowly. At least I'm doing it.

DH and I walked together this afternoon since he was having a low energy day. Usually we can't keep the same pace because he's 6'3" and a fast walker.

I'm partially sabotaging my "diet" by baking to use up the eggs and dairy in the refrigerator. Today I made soft sugar cookies with butter and sour cream. Not what a person on a "diet" would do, but I'm not dieting. I'm trying to build a realistic awareness of my passions and how they influence my health and weight.

    Slow and steady wins the race. And progress is progress. I totally agree with both. My son and brother are 6"7" so I understand. My husband a few inches taller than me but slower because out of shape. At least sometimes he walks with me. Sugar cookie are great was long as figure into what you ate for the day. Besides they do have dairy in them. Every time I see the water challenge I think of you first.LOL
    OMG I was going to ask you what PBS exercise was then I realized the station. Lol. Good luck Ms Miranda!
