Healthy Walkin'

Checking in, friends.  It's officially Spring Break in our county.  Audrey is not happy that I said we were having school anyway.  (She'll thank me later when she's vacationing while the others are still in school.  lol)  Hubby has to work, so we're going to take a few days and visit family in TN.  We'll still be able to do school while we're gone.  (She's REALLY gonna love me when we're doing "work" over the summer, but we'll save that conversation for another day.)

OK, I'm on Day 11 of very few carbs.  I'm doing fine.  It has to be a God thing.  Normally, on my own, I think I'd have been super cranky and "woe is me" and D-O-N-E by now.  But, I'm doing just fine.  I haven't given into anything... except a big gulp of orange juice this morning.  I have had NOTHING sweet.  And, for those of you that know me, that's huge!  Honestly, I don't think I'm eating enough.  Today I had brunch and dinner.  Brunch was 2 scrambled eggs and turkey sausage.  For dinner, Derek made a chicken sausage (with pasta), creamed spinach, and broccoli.  I had a few bites of the pasta since I worked out today, but that was it.  I just have to STOP getting on the scale every day.  It has only been 11 days and the scales move between a 3 and 5 pounds loss.  Sooo... I'm saying it right here, right now.  I will only weigh one day a week!  There!

I've walked twice this week.  Baby steps!  I walked 2 miles one day and 3 the other.  Gonna get up and go again tomorrow.  I can't tell you how much I have missed the Greenway.  Seriously, as I was walking this morning, I just kept thinking about how beautiful it is and how comfortable I am there.  Silly?  Maybe.  But, it is one of my most favorite places to be (is that grammatically correct?).  My body has missed the consistent exercise.  My entire attitude has changed.  I'm looking forward to getting fit... for real, for good!

  1. This is fantastic! Have you done any trike riding lately? Isn't the greenway you all took them down?

    We haven't taken them out this year yet, but it's definitely in the plans. Yes, we take them to the Greenway. It's the perfect place!
