Hi all, it is finally Friday - thank goodness.
I'm ready for the weekend.
I did better with my eating this week, and got some major walking in........but I need to be consistent and do more and do it regularly.

I think part of my problem is that I'm wanting warm weather and sunshine. I'm so depressed and tired of cold and snow! Lately I just find myself wanting to eat and sit around doing nothing. Gotta get myself together. *sigh*

Whenever I feel myself straying from my healthy habits, a good solid walk always brings me back. I needed such a walk yesterday. Late in the afternoon, I walked with my sweetheart out to dinner (a 45 min walk each way) at a salad bar/sandwich shop hybrid. I needed the greens and grilled chicken to revive my focus, too!

It's been a rough week for me. Between eating poorly and not a lot of motivation I haven't walked on my incline trainer as much as I should've.

I know many of you are buried in SNOW. But we have heavy rain here in Southern Calif. and are not prepared for this type of weather.
The place seems to fall apart - people forget how to drive safely etc.

So with the rain - no walk for me today.
I have that thin Calif. blood and want to stay inside.

The past 2 days I've been extremely stressed (which isn't going to change anytime soon unfortunately) but I've gotten back out on my incline trainer in the evening instead of eating. So, I'm trying to make it a habit to do emotional exercising rather than emotional eating.

No walking for me today. It is raining really hard and in Southern Calif. no one handles the rain well. Safest thing to do is stay at home.
But, I'm at work............

I do have a treadmill in the garage and I need to motivate myself to get on it.

I was able to get out and take a 15 minute walk today! Kids have been at home with school being closed since Wednesday afternoon which makes it very difficult to get out.

I found the route tracker that SP has added yesterday as well. That is making it really easy for me to track how far I am walking each time.

Thank you SP!
