It's April, Already?!!!

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Where has the time gone? I guess I really AM getting older, time just flies...

Doing well with my eating. I have not been eating cookies and candy during Lent, and for the most part I haven't really missed them, which is SURPISING!! I've been having fruits with yogurt, or nuts and I have noticed my "cravings" have gone down. My scale has been staying the same, so maybe I'm eating healthier calories instead...I've been staying within my range most of the time too, though I went over at a wedding on Friday...

Exercise has been good too. I've had to change things up because of the extra yard work. My body can't handle a morning of yard work AND strength training on my upper body...so I've been moving the days for strength training around, at least for my upper body.

My allergies have been terrible this year...it's like I went from indoor allergies to outdoor ones because we've had such a mild winter and early spring...taking Allegra daily. But I'm not letting them keep me indoors!!!

I'm looking forward to Easter, and I'm gearing up for a retreat in a week. I'll be going back to the rural area I went in the Fall with some friends. I'm hoping for good weather, lots of hiking!

Wishing everyone a great week! emoticon

    Understand the allergy deal. We are having major ones out here in Las Vegas, too!! I so agree with you- it's Already April? Geeez!!

    Good going on your nutrition and fitness!! Keep up the good work, don't worry about the scale not moving- use other measurements for reaching goals, too. With all the work you have been doing, I'll bet you are shrinking in inches!!

    Have a great Easter!!

    This all sounds good, Sheri, except for the allergies! UGH! I'm so glad your spiritual Lenten promise has helped you with your sugar cravings. Good for you! The retreat sounds refreshing ~ hope you are blessed with good weather so you can get the full benefit of hiking while there.

    Happy Easter! Happy life! emoticon
