A good week

So my work schedule has changed, so there may be a period of adjustment. On the bright side, it allowed me to attend a special 1 1/2 hour zumba fundraiser on Sat morn!! I got more in on Tues evening and this morning. I also swam 20 laps last night!!

My diet has been a mixed bag. I’m not eating a lot (good thing,) but what I eat is not always what I should be (not so good.)  I have a list of foods taped to the inside of my supplement cabinet. I’m going to make a concerted effort to use that more. I don’t know about anyone else, but I relate to Oprah’s bread commercial! I think it’s easy to miss the implications of what she’s saying. Bread is not good for us, it’s actually close to a decadent dessert! I just got a loaf of cranberry bread! I like to get the fresh baked bread at Acme or Giant Eagle cause it doesn’t have the preservatives the other stuff has. I find that it’s easier to focus on what I should be having and not try and cut things completely out, just minimize.

Anyway, I’m also going to spend more time prepping and cooking. This is super important when trying to fuel the kind of intense activities I enjoy!

I felt really strong today in class, so I think I’m starting to pick up momentum on my spiral. I’m starting to think about how I can fit more in as well, a good sign. I’m looking forward to summer when I can test my progress on the trails!!

  1. Much luck on your journey to better health. I’m undergoing a similar process in my own way. Isn’t it terrible that something that smells so wonderfully freshly made is so bad for us – bread? My favourite are the bakery loaves we pick up from Sobeys. It’s multigrain bread but it tastes so good and doesn’t seem much different from regular white or wholewheat bread but it is. We put it in the freezer and unthaw a piece or two in the microwave when we want bread. Lovely post!

    1. Thanx! It wasn’t always that way. I heard of a study that determined that sitting for hours is so bad for us, that even intense exercise can’t undo the damage!
