This is the first of four posts from our Fitness Kick-off project. I have joined with 9 other bloggers to share progress and activities on staying fit (or getting fit) before the New Year.
I also have a great giveaway to offer you, and will tell you about it in just a few minutes.
Here is my Fitness Report:
Each morning, I worked out for 30 minutes. This included target toning with light weights.
On Monday, I started a notebook to keep track of my exercising and eating. I made the mistake of forgetting to eat breakfast and ended up feeling like I was starving until lunch time. Sometimes I get so busy, I forget to eat. Looking over my food diary, I realized I ate some snacks but only ate one meal. Not good!
I did much better on Tuesday, but then Wednesday, I completely forgot to eat a real meal the entire day. I had been surviving on little, junky snacks (like a few chips), rather than eating small scheduled meals (like an apple with oatmeal, etc.). Writing in the food diary helped me see what I was doing. I do have to explain here that my health difficulties (former cancer patient) make it difficult for me to eat regular foods and in regular amounts. I rarely eat what I make for my family. And when I do eat, it is a very tiny portion.
My ongoing fitness goal is to workout daily and to replace snacks with more nourishing foods. I don't have any weight to lose, but at my age, I need to keep an eye on it so it doesn't creep up!
Remember, we all have different health struggles and approaches to fitness and nutrition. I would love to hear what you are doing to stay fit! Please share in the comments section and then visit the other bloggers to cheer them on!
