Back at it!

Yesterday was definitely a day of rest and repose -I gave myself a pass on exercise and spent the morning watching action movies with my husband. There was some indulgence at a gathering of friends in the evening, but today I’m back in the saddle. I just got back from my morning run, about 3 miles today. I’ve recently been running without music and enjoying the scenery more, I have a trail near my house next to a canal where the wildlife and bird-watching is outstanding. Today I saw a new kind of duck which I haven’t yet been able to identify but their heads were shaped like a wedge or axe blade with the sharp end at the top. Really pretty birds.

My strategy this week is to get rid of leftovers and treats and focus on having as many deficit days as possible before the revelry I know is to come on New Years Eve. I’m going on a little 3-day getaway starting tomorrow but I’m hoping to work in some hiking and lots of walking as well as choose lots of vegetable-based meals at restaurants. I hope you have a supportive weight management week planned as well!

    Doesn’t that make a big difference in quality of life?

    Back in 2005, I gave away all of my TVs and radios, and I haven’t missed them at all. I get all my news over the internet, from NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc. — and definitely not from the fake journalists on Fox “News.”

    And I’ve really learned to enjoy all the peace and quiet. Recently, I changed my cell number, and I just let people leave messages on my home phone, which I check every few hours.

    Now if I could just do something about all the voices in my head … :o)

    We had a lazy day yesterday with a few too many carbs thrown into the mix. Oh, and a nap in the afternoon. Very nice. We just came back from a walk and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine. 🙂

    I’m on vacation this week, and my goal is daily deliberate exercise. Yesterday I worked out on my Wii for 45 minutes (boxing, aerobics, strength, and yoga… and a snowball fight!), and today I’m going to hit the treadmill for as long as I can stand. I’ve never been a runner, but I can work up a good sweat while walking.
