Back on Track

I LOVE fall – and today was a beautiful, PERFECT fall day in Flower Mound Texas. If I were a native Texan I might have thought it was too cold; but I’m not, and it wasn’t. It was about 60 degrees, with enough breeze to warrant a sweatshirt. I took the two terriers for a walk in the park; well technically one walk and one walk/ride.

Ruby can’t walk very far so she gets to ride in a stroller part of the time. I actually don’t think she cares if she walks or rides, just so she gets to go.

So now that the BRUTAL heat of the summer is over, I’ve decided to give another go to getting fit. Weight has been a lifelong battle for me, and in a few months I will be turning another decade older! (And it’s a BIG decade!!) I think that’s starting to sink in. It’s now or never – soon I will be OLD!

So I’m putting it out there – for all to read. I’m officially starting (once again) to implement a reasonable eating plan and a walk/run program (by Jeff Galloway).

Wish me luck, and strength. And stay tuned.

    You can do it!!! When I started my “get healthier” attitude last year I stayed diligent for 8 weeks, refusing to eat anything I knew was bad for me. After I lost about 20 pounds I started taking one day a week (usually a weekend) to relax the rules a little. I didn’t go crazy but I did indulge on ONE DAY. That seemed to get my metabolism going after a stall. I still do the same thing and I’ve lost 40 pounds total. I heard a statistic the other day that if you eat good 90% of the time, it’s okay to be bad 10% of the time. I wish you much luck and success with it!!

    Ruby looks precious in that stroller. The photo makes me very happy. :)

    Thanks Gail - that’s so encouraging!!! It’s always easy to start, it’s the sticking to it part that gets hard. So I need to draw inspiration from others. Thanks!!!!
