Getting some extra perks from exercise

Friday, June 21, 2013

I am getting more & more motivated to exercise. One reason is my YMCA has a summer program that offers free lunch to kids Mon-Fri from 11a-1p. Also, the Y offers 2 hours a day of free child care. How can I not exercise?! So I have been trying a lot of new exercise classes and enjoying some swim time with my little one. When we return,my toddler sleeps for 3 hours too. I have been pushing her stroller for my after dinner walk. We started with 10 minutes at the beginning of the Spring Challenge & are up to 45 minutes. By the time we are back home from our walk, she is already asleep for the night! With these kind perks, I'll keep moving :)

    Really great! You get exercise and they get tired!!

I see you live in Las Vegas--someday I will get out there--my brother and sister-in-law have been there about 25 years and I've never visited. Hope you keep cool--I know it is HOT right now!

5% challenge is proving to be successful

Friday, June 14, 2013

This challenge is increasing my strength & mobility while reducing my pain & stress. I am sleeping more deeply. My arms are much stronger - increased strength by 23 pounds. This is the best I have felt in a year since my work accident.

Love making my own salad dressing & condiments

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Sounds a little crazy, but I really enjoy making different salad dressings. About 8 years ago I became sensitive to any store bought dressing/condiments. I started experimenting & making my own. Now it's a crazy hobby because they turn out soooo tasty.

    the best way! I personally don't use any oils so always make my own dressings out of preference to having low or no extra calories to me salads emoticon

Kids make the walk fun - easy 50 minutes

Sunday, May 12, 2013

My 8 year old & I, headed out with his little sister in the stroller. We hit the park early & enjoyed the water pads all to ourselves. We even borrowed grandma's dog for the walk. What a sweet way to start the day - everyone was so happy on the walk. Great Mother's Day!

Oh ya ... & I slept in my walking clothes so we could spring out the door without a second thought!

    I am late in reading this; however, I sure am glad that I did so! I like picturing your morning walk with your children & the dog. I enjoy getting out early before the day starts for the world around me.

God bless!
