Sooo, how'd you do over the holiday? I'm happy to report that I stayed clear of the candy (even when my husband practically shoved a chocolate egg in my mouth). Sometimes I don't know about him lol. I knew it wouldn't taste as good as it smelled and I didn't even want to go down that rabbit-hole.
Adding to that victory, I've been sticking to my "plan".... lower carb, whole foods, active lifestyle. I feel good and I don't have the urge to binge (this is HUGE for me).
Currently, I've shifted my focus to finding fun things to do that keep me active. If you're friends with me on MyFitnessPal you know that I recently bought a pogo stick. You read that right, I said a pogo stick. ☺ I'm having lots of fun bouncing around my backyard on it. My kids think it's amusing to run around me while I'm bouncing, which adds a level of difficulty, as I'm dodging them. It's great exercise though, and fantastic for your core!
Another thing I've realized recently is that I love hiking. This goes back to my childhood. We backpacked and hiked growing up. I didn't realize how much I loved it until I took the kids a while back. There's just something about it that soothes and energizes me all at once. I've got a lead on a hiking pack for the baby (thank you Craigslist) and I picked up a book on easy hiking trails in my general area.
I love getting outdoors with the kids, so I can't wait to do more. Hopefully hubby will come along, but if not, that's okay.
Here's a few pictures from our last trip....
Anyway, summer's coming and if I don't figure out a way to get out and active with the kids, I think I'll go a little bonkers. Hiking trips should help break up the norm!
Hope you're having a great week. As always, just keep moving forward....
I'm curious, what's your favorite fun exercise or activity??
