Broken record...

Not the good kind of record breaking event -- the repetitious broken record.
I know, I know! I sound like a broken record when I say I'm going to get serious about healthy living again.

This week I read that if I'd quit giving up, I wouldn't have to keep starting over!
How true!

Never-the-less, I find myself at that old familiar place.
I did weigh in on May 1st and again today (the 8th) and have managed to drop a few pounds in the first week of the month and my first week of another go at it. I also managed to log my food intake every day (My Fitness Pal app) and stay within my weight-loss calorie goals 6 of the 7 days.
And I managed to walk a little every day and am back to some good stretching and a little light yoga.

The biggest thing for me is the healthy eating part. I find that when I eat well, I tend to want to exercise a little and let the healthy eating lifestyle move into other areas of living. Focusing on exercise doesn't work the same way for me. I can walk every day and still want to eat junk, but eating well every day seems to inspire me to more activity and better lifestyle habits.

Week 2 begins and it is another beautiful day in the Ozarks. I had my protein smoothie for breakfast (kind of a brunch since I was up late watching the ballgame) and have plans for a good dinner tonight. I'm sure I'll get my walk in at some point. I hope that your week will be grand!

Be well,
