I am happy to report that all the snow in my yard has melted!! While there are still piles in shady places around town, there is none in my yard. The crocuses are finally blooming, and I am seeing some green. Of course, with all of the snow gone, I am left with a very messy yard. I think some intensive yard work is in my workout schedule this weekend!
As for my health and well-being, it’s a mixed bag. I gained weight for the third week in a row (but still below my goal weight), even though I was able to get outside and move. I’ve noticed that my walks, while longer, are also slower, so that means fewer calories burned sometimes. And it really goes back to the junk food and snacking that I talked about last week. So I’m making a conscious effort to cut back on the extras. So far, it seems to be helping.
Saturday: 33 minutes walking
Sunday: 30 minutes walking
Monday: 45 minutes walking
Tuesday: 86 minutes walking
Wednesday: 62 minutes walking
Thursday: 45 minutes BodyFlow + 30 minutes walking
As you all know, I’m hosting the second quarter #FitReaders and am responsible for the prizes awarded at the end of June. I‘m wondering what to offer up as a prize and want input for you folks! I need something that can be sent anywhere – we have international participants. It can’t be super heavy or wicked expensive, but fun, enjoyable, etc. Of course, one option is a gift card – it could be to Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or someplace else. I could do water bottles, t-shirts, headbands, etc. What do you think? Leave me some suggestions, please. I’ll look into it and then come back later with my follow up.
How was your week? Did you hit any milestones? Try a new food or workout? Celebrate your week with us!
