No more couch potato!

As I sit here with the back door open, no television or radio blaring in the backround and listening to the birds, I got the urge to go to the lake. I know the time is almost here but not quite. We still have the occasional frost on the window's in the a.m. and it's at least 10 degrees colder by the water.

While looking at these pictures my daughter and I decided to do a lifestyle makeover...Dinner for lunch and salad for dinner. No more eating a full meal at 7p.m. and going to bed shortly after. Getting ourselves off of the couch and outdoors. We were so happy last year we spent a lot of time outdoors exploring nature. Than I started developing couch potato syndrome.

The first step is to start using these more...My daughter exercises daily. She has offered to get mom back into shape. We are going to start with a nice hike today. Why don't you join us. Take a walk, bring your camera and post pictures of the sites your saw along the way.

  3. We also eat our big meal at lunch and then very little later in the day. Walking is the only exercise I enjoy. I do try to walk some every day because I know how good it is for me. Getting out and enjoying new places is a great way to keep me walking without noticing it:) Good luck with your lifestyle makeover. Have a nice week! Twyla
