Thoughts for today

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals.

Drinking water throughout today made me feel good. It also helps to keep me full :) Adding lemon and lime is the icing on the cake.

I appreciate being able to have the ability and money to buy fresh healthy foods.

Coming home and chopping and slicing fresh produce to have it easily accessible for the week will save me time in the long run.

Had an unsweetened iced green tea with my daughter Jen.

Thinking of the many ways I can use the huge zucchini that Jen gave me from her garden.

Lots of steps taken today. Walking is one of my favorite exercises.

New to me and mucho yummo

Decided to take 30 days to focus on my health. Making me a priority.

Weekly weigh in and a storm!

Last night while I was at work we had some wicked rain and hail. It was so heavy that it started to pour into the store. Water over 1/2 the store front. So into action we went and spend over 1/2 an hour mopping and putting chairs up to keep customers away from that side of the store. On top of that the air conditioner is still not working right = very hot and sweaty Suzi!! The upside of it is that it's weigh in day today and I'm pretty sure I've been burning lots of calories at work :)

Last week I was up 1.2 lbs and this week I'm down -3.9 lbs. Very happy with that!

My goal for today is to go on a walk before the rain comes and stick to my plan.

Hope you're having a great holiday weekend.

Staying active!

One of the things that I know I've learned over the years is how important it is to stay active.

When I was 22 I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. One of the things I remember that the Dr told me was use it or lose it. Keep moving or you will lose the ability to move easily. Build up the muscle around the joints to help cope.

Well I have to say that I think I'm pretty active and I believe it's definitely kept my arthritis at bay.

This morning I went on a 45 minute walk and this afternoon I went on a 55 minute bike ride :) No keeping this old gal down!!

I also made the yummiest salad for lunch! I saw a recipe from Nom Nom Paleo where she used arugula and extra oil. I changed it up a bit. I used mixed salad greens, prosciutto wrapped around fresh peach slices then put into a hot pan to slightly brown the prosciutto and topped pc Memories of Thailand sweet spicy sauce. Oh my I will be making this again. Sweet, spicy and salty :)

Another good day

I managed to get a walk and a bike ride in before the rain poured down!

Food was totally satisfying.

I've drank 11 cups of water so far.

Now I'm watching Noah with a glass of red wine!

Waving hi!

Despite not blogging for the last few days I've been doing great. Just busy.

No blogging mojo lately.

Thankfully with my knee brace on I've been able to walk more.

I've also bought new running shoes and work shoes in the hope that they will also help my knee.

Hope everything is going well with you!

That's the only way to describe today! Hot!

I did manage to go on a 40 minute walk and a 20 minute bike ride but I was definitely a sweaty mess :) This was Snuffy waiting for me when I got home.

Tomorrow we're going to Midland for a boat cruise. Lots of pictures I'm sure.
