Lots of Exercise!

Yesterday, I took the kids to the park to hike AFTER having worked on the renovation of my daughters' room all morning. We hiked 1.25 miles up and down hills and across bridges. The kids especially enjoyed the swinging bridge. I wish I had taken my camera. There were some really neat red mushrooms. Of course there were plenty of mosquitos, but I didn't end up with too many bites. After our hike we went to the playground and then put our feet in the swimming lake. It was a really nice time. BUT, I don't think I'll be taking the three year old on that long of a hike next time. I ended up having to carry him about a third of the way. Incidently, I've lost about as much as he weighs so I suppose it was a good recollection of hiking at my highest weight.

So how did I eat yesterday? Well. OK. No bad portions. Lots of water. But not enough veggies. In my defense the pickin's are getting very slim around here. I'll be grocery shopping tomorrow. I do have enough lettuce and tomato left for a salad. I'll be having that for lunch today.

Keep up the activity - I need to learn from you and move more myself.

My kids beg me to go hiking. So that really helps!
