Fitness Team Report and - Lilla Rose Giveaway

The Legacy of Home

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!

I love your fitness goals and learning to eating healthy snacks. I need to do this and before the holidays would be good.
Thanks for the chance to enter your giveaway. I love the pin and would give it to one of my grand daughters.
Blessings to you for your thoughts today.

Way to go with your fitness goals. I'm trying to walk, but my baby is only two weeks old, and it's too cold to take her along. So...I do whatever exercises my children are doing, although my stamina is not back up to theirs yet. (Was it EVER?!) ;)

I would love to win the Flexi for any one of my daughters...except the baby. I have four girls with waist-length hair and a three-year-old with beautiful mid-back locks. They would all love it.
