My goal this year is to simply stay in my size 8 jeans through exercise and eating well. My exercise of choice is walking. I also love to swim when I have access to a pool (or a lake, or an ocean.) I love to eat healthy foods, but don't always devote the time I should to preparing them.
I'll admit it. This week was a total fail. School was out Monday and Tuesday due to snow, I have a big project at work that's keeping me stuck to my desk, I've had a sick child at home, and even though I gave up eating meat for Lent I seem to have replaced it with pretzel m&ms. It happens I guess.
I thought setting up my summer hiking schedule this week would motivate me, but so far it's only making me feel tired. I have a lot to plan and organize, and I think I need to buy new shoes.
I don't want to beat myself up; I have a lot on my plate. But I know from experience that no matter how little I feel like it giving up on my walking will only hurt, not help. Onward my friends, there's only a slight chance of snow in the forecast next week.
