I like salad! I wish I liked exercise. I will make myself!

OK, here is my morning snack... (Was supposed to include nuts, but we were out.)

And here is my salad for lunch. OOPS I forgot the oz of cheese! The tomato is from my garden! Woo hoo! I'm excited because I wasn't a dedicated gardener this year so to get anything from it is amazing.

I am lucky that I love vegetables. Especially raw salads. If it were a chore to eat a salad I know this healthy living thing would be much more difficult.

I had lunch pretty late because I got tied up working and lost track of time. So I may skip my afternoon snack. We'll see. It's mostly starch anyway, so I wouldn't be losing out on a ton of nutrients by doing so.

I have managed to come up with all kinds of excuses not to exercise today. Its raining. I can't afford gas to drive somewhere I can walk inside. My VHS machine is not hooked up and I don't know how to hook it up and my only exercise video is VHS. All such good reasons, huh? Well, I'm not accepting them. I'm going to do 15 minutes of dancing to music if I have to! Today is the DAY! I will start this exercise habit NOW!

BTW, I'm doing great on my water today and peeing a ton! Perhaps I was retaining water from the weekend?

I've got some exercises you can do from home without any equipment on my blog if you're interested. One of my own fitness goals was to figure out a whole body routine to do at home since I can't afford a bunch of equipment or go to a gym (nor do I live close to any place I could walk around inside). Good luck and keep trying! A little bit every day is a good way to start!
