Wonderful Christmas--New Day

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Good Morning,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I wasn't perfect on my health and fitness goals yesterday but I believe I was 95% better than in previous years! Today is a new day and we won't look back at the things we did wrong but look forward at working towards our goals. My life is no longer "I start my diet tomorrow". There is no tomorrow. Everything has to start today.
This morning I decided I'd get a walk in early so when my husband went out to start his truck, I said "Is it warmer out?" His answer was yes. So then I said, "is it walkable?" There was a P A U S E and he finally said yes. Should have taken that as a hint! Went to walk at 730 and darn near froze to death out there! Any other day, someone would have stopped and asked if I wanted a ride. If you tell them no enough times, they don't ask anymore. But, I made it through the 2 mile walk and have over 3/4 of my steps in for the day (and since I didn't even get 1100 steps yesterday--that's a really good thing!). So, if you live where it's cold and go out for a walk, put some long johns on before you go out!
Have a great day!

    Thanks! I got all my steps and then some before lunch today! Haven't checked my total for today but hopefully I will balance out yesterday's deficit!
    Do believe I will be investing in better gloves for my walking. Cheap stretchy gloves are worthless out there!

    NHES220--our ice is pretty much gone here in Illinois. Supposed to get up to 35 over the weekend but back in the deep freeze next week.

    Way to go, Linda!!!! Way to get those steps in! I will be glad when things get back to normal and all the junk food is no where in the vicinity! Isn't it great to know that you will never have to diet again?

    Btw -- thank you again for cheering me on! Your support is very much appreciated!

    Good for you for getting out for a walk in the invigorating weather! I'll stick to the treadmill today since it is a little icy out and I worry about falling!
