Update Midweek

It is midweek of the new year, and it is going to be 81 degrees today. My walking is going great, it has been so lovely one can have no excuses.I will take some pictures of my walking path, and post soon. To recap I will be walking five to six days a week, one hour a day. Mon-Fri and sometimes Saturday.

As soon as I get into this routine for a week I will add the weight lifting schedule.I will also get on the scale soon so I an chart my weight loss, and I will document the changes.

I am have been following my weight watchers points, which really help me stay on track with my healthy eating and have balance at the same time. I make sure I get over five servings of produce daily, I think vegetables and fruits should be the basis of healthy eating.I realize even with points certain foods have to be off limits for me on a regular basis, and pasta is one of those foods that makes me feel sluggish and ill so I will choose not to eat it.
I will only indulge on occasion.

I am back to decaffeinated coffee and drinking tons of fresh water. I am also eating an early morning breakfast which is a great way to stay on track for the whole day. It gets your metabolism going and sets your mind frame up for a day of healthy eating. I do not eat past 7:00 pm and it really helps with my sleep patterns. It is funny how we fall out of these routines during the holidays but they really do make a difference in how you feel.

I purchased a supplement to keep my hair strong as I make my transitions. It was on sale so it was a bonus. I also have been doing my dry skin brushing daily. I choose to do it in the morning before my shower, and my skin has never felt softer. Ayurvedic dry skin brushing is believed to help the body detox and it feels amazing as well.

Love to all as you embark on your first week of changes of 2012. What are you doing this week to make a difference in your resolutions??

Til next time, have a wonderful day.


  1. I wish it was 81 degrees here!!!!! That would be amazing! I am craving an outdoor run but it's only 16 degrees so I haven't decided if I will venture out.

    You are doing great, and thank you for sharing this information on your blog. What do you use to brush your skin? In OT we do brushing for sensory integration, and calming. I am wondering if it's the same tool.

  2. Today was beautiful, and I took photos of my path which I will post on a later date. Each day I go further, until I hit an hour. I am up to about 45 minutes if not more at the moment.

    I use a natural bristle brush to do the dry skin brushing. Then when I shower I use a moisturizing wash and my skin feels amazing afterwards.Thanks for the support.
