    An update on ideas I have

    and decisions I've made. I decided to add a walk-day to my schedule. Once a week I will go for along walk (40 minutes minimum), this walk does not have to be fast paced or have a designated route. It is simply for those days when all your exercise clothes are in the laundry...

    I am loosing weight but it's coming off slowly.

    I know slow is good but I think I've plateaued. I've got a weigh in tomorrow and I am fairly confident I'm not going to make weight. I should have tried harder, I know I could have. I've been lax in with my diet and exercising seems to be a fond memory these days. My health is...

    Had to giggle last night.

    My hubby and I took a brisk walk and he was "done" before I was even close. He said "man I'm outta shape, I need to start working out with you". It will be nice to have a workout partner.
