Amber @ http://amberfilkins.blogspot.com/ is having a link up support group for those of us trying to improve ourselves by becoming more healthy, for me that means losing weight. I found her site through my aimless blog hopping ways but intend to make this a regular part of my blogging time.
Anyway, I have on and off (mostly off) been trying to lose weight since last October. I did manage to lose 10 lbs and have not regained it (not for lack of sabatoging myself though).
I am proud of myself this week though, I was able to keep to my intentions of going to my gym and working out for a good 30 min a day. Usually I do 3000 steps on a stair climber and I am slowly working up my time on an eliptical.
On Wednesday, the day I did not work out I did take my son and his friend to bedtime books at our library, well thanks to daylight savings time it is now bright and sunny at 7PM so after the reading we went out and played at the park for 30 minutes. I was proud that I was able to run all around the place while playing hide and go seek with them without getting winded.
Today, instead of sitting around or cleaning the house, after seeing how nice it was outside (mid 50’s and sunny) we trecked off to the zoo. We did quite a bit of walking and I was able to keep up with the kiddos and hubby, without getting tired or feeling out of breath like I would have in the past.
So, my goal now is to do some sort of exercising every day. And I have to get the diet thing going again… so tonight finding Heather’s blog will be my inspiration to stay true to my goals.
