Would you believe that I was able to get some cardio in? Amazing! Lol
This weekend was really interesting weather-wise. We went from a severe thunderstorm warning and tornado watch one day, to a beautifully nippy one the next. What a complete 360¤ turn! I went to attended an event about human trafficking, so I took the advantage of the day and used public transit to get around. I appreciate the fact that sunshine was back again!
I burned over 200 calories total when I used the Metro and I walked from home to get a meal. No sense in using gas when the destination is less than a mile away! My choices in food items are taken seriously, but I know I’ve slipped the last few weeks. I do manage to have a smoothie, whether it’s homemade or bought from the cafeteria. I try to get my daily intake of fruits and vegetables. I have a new buddy on myfitnesspal who’s on my case, and with good reason. She even prayed over my addiction to chips and fast food and shared a healthy grocery shopping list. Looking forward to going shopping!
I know we can’t expect changes overnight with our health, but the journey to a healthier lifestyle is a rewarding experience! As I tell people, “I’m making it day by day!
To my fellow bloggers and those who read my blog posts: No, I haven’t fallen off the turnip truck. Things have been challenging and interesting at the same time! I started a 30-day Smoothie Challenge at the beginning of April. I’ve enjoyed the recipes that Simple Green Smoothies sends me via email and on their website. Don’t let the appearance of the green fool you. They taste good! I need to get rid of the fast food fascination though. Having healthy smoothies in my diet helps to increase energy. I FINALLY got a chance to go outside and walk. Now I have to force myself to TRULY work out since the community fitness center is closed for renovations. And the workouts MUST be consistent! While out of town, I did go to the grocery store and pick up some fruit, water, and potato chips (my weakness, I know). You have to plan when there’s no easy access to healthy food. You know hotel food is expensive! So many changes going on in my profession & personal life. I REFUSE to cave into the oh woe is me mentality! I keep moving in faith & know that God’s not through with me yet! That’s why I thank him everyday for another day of life; keep him close to me during the day and mention him before I go to bed. One day, I know I’ll reach my fitness goals and maintain a healthier lifestyle. I haven’t given up!
