healthy life – style journal, Oct 12, 2015

What a great day – happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends and happy Columbus day to my American friends. I hope you all are having a great, relaxing and peaceful day full with sweet moments with family and friends.

I have so far done really well with my healthy life-style plan today. I walked for 50 min in the morning! I did not even take my purse with me; I just left with my key, focused on walking, the rhythm of my body as I walked, and the scenery. I kept pretty much a faster than average speed and I loved seeing how well my body handles it (i.e. without straining itself) and how it made me sweat. Sweating is good; for some reason I am feeling much better when my body works to this extent. I am very grateful for today being an off day, which allowed me to have this wonderful experience.

I know I can do this more often and I know that I do not feel tired as I used to time to time in the past. Starting to walk for leisure again is positively affecting me and I am very excited about this πŸ™‚

breakfast: 1 hard boiled egg, 1 cup of coffee with cream and sugar

lunch: green beans and beef meal (left-over from yesterday)

late-afternoon snack: 1 apple

dinner: red cabbage and hard tofu cubes salad with olive oil

late-night snack (added later):Β 1 apple, tofu bits sprinkled with brown sugar, 1 tall glass of milk

exercise: 50 min walk in the morning πŸ™‚

supplements: 1 calcium and Vit D tablet after the dinner

    1. mine is a slow process too… I am surprised by how little I can lose (it has been 5 weeks since I started eating better). But you are right; I feel better with the food and the extra exercise I can get. so I will keep going. Maybe not in two months but in in a year I will lose my 25 pounds :)))

      1. i think i’m a week behind you, so only 4 weeks and have bounced around 4 lbs, but just these past few days it really seems to be trending down. i know you don’t like chicken, but man i made the best fried chicken, biscuits, smashed potatoes with gravy, and the token spinach salad which no one ate except me. My clan consumed almost the entire 4 lb chicken!

          1. i only make it about once a year since i don’t buy chickens from the store, but only about 10 from my neighbour lady who raises them on pasture. Mostly, i roast them – easier. Local, organic, pastured. Can’t beat that.
