A Fine Foggy Day

Thank you to everyone who gave me advice about being sick and working out! What I have been trying to do is be active every day without doing anything intense, and get lots of rest. And today I was able to talk in the morning without sounding like the 90 year old woman who has been smoking since she was 13! Imagine, a whole shift without using a cough drop!

On Friday I was able to workout with a friend and we swapped ab exercises and ideas. While I love listening to my ipod while working out, it was a great change of pace to talk while on the elliptical (I didn't even notice the 45minutes whiz by) and have a knowledge exchange.

It is so much easier to achieve a goal when you have help and support. When people know what you are trying to do, they can HELP YOU. And we are humans. Flawed humans. We need help:)

Especially with the holiday season fast approaching! How can you be healthy and happy when the only way to make your aunt Edna happy is to ask for a second helping of pecan pie with whip cream? How can we integrate new, healthier recipes into family traditions? Where do we find the time for movement when we are exhausted at the end of the day? All these answers* and more, coming soon to a blog near you!

*answers are subjective, and do not apply to everyone. As a matter of fact, they might be very individual, but can still serve as jumping points for you to answer the questions for yourself:)


  1. Can't wait for some holiday tips..Christmas = the most wonderful time of the year...for gaining weight! Thanks for the comment, I just re-read it and you make a good point, I do feel more in control when my weight loss (healthy lifestyle) is going well. Maybe if I get a handle on it again, stuff with school will fall into place along with it. Anywho, congrats on the continued success, hope you feel better!!

  2. Oh the holidays...I just wrote about them too! I think our blogs (and out blog friends) will help keep us accountable and that'll help us walk away from the second (third and fourth) slice of pie.
