The other night, me and my husband were talking about weight. We were talking about how much harder it is for a woman to lose weight than a man, etc. But as usual, he said I’m fine the way I am but had a suggestion. He said that I should walk to clear my mind. He mentioned how it can’t be mentally healthy to get up and go straight to work on the computer and that I needed to get my body going before sitting down to work. He made some good points throughout the conversation so I decided to start walking, both evening and mornings.
I walk to the cattleguard and back which is about a mile. A great start for me. I listen to my Joyce Meyer podcast while walking to give me inspiration. The scenery is so pretty in the early a.m. and around 8pm. I’ve been carrying my camera just in case I see something spectacular. On this walk, the only spectacular thing I saw was me. HA!!
I’ve been taking vitamins and I’ve noticed that they make me feel a LOT better. Clearly I don’t get all the nutrients I need from food so I know that vitamins are essential for me. I’m currently taking a prenatal vitamin, fish oil, D3, Calcium, and Magnesium, all at the advice from my ex-trainer. I’d love to get Complete Nutrition but can’t afford to spend that extra money right now.
I cut soda out a little more and while I drink tea in place of it, I’ve been watering down my tea and drinking a lot more water. I don’t know about you but there is something about being able to drink more water out of a bottle…..odd no?
Anyways, I find that walking has really helped me clear my mind, just like my husband said it would. If I lose weight, great…if I don’t, I know that it’s helping me mentally & spiritually so that’s awesome. Gotta be good for the heart too! I’m feeling a lot better and making myself get more sleep. So with that note, it’s 11pm and way past my bedtime. ‘Nite
