There is no condemnation . . . The Bible says that - and although I may be stretching the true meaning - I have moved past blaming myself. I made bad choices - so now I have to make good choices. And I am always a student - so a new book caught my eye at a quick shop today - called "You Are What You Eat". I grabbed one for myself and for my sister Tami.
We are all dietetic sinners; only a small percent of what we eat nourishes us; the balance goes to waste and loss of energy. ~William Osler
No that didn't come from the book - but I believe Mr. Osler. And the one thing I did learn while losing my weight was that the glycemic index is important - basically - keep your blood sugar running level and you will not be as hungry.
So as I refocus on my health I am issuing a challenge to myself and to Tami - and to any of my readers for today!
Get moving! Walk four miles (not all at once) or ride bike 10 miles (not all at once). I am
doing this because I have an entire day at home today with no plans. Well I plan to clean
house a little and prepare for our granddaughter's visit next weekend. But I am on my own
time frame and I have the most fun when I can run out jump on my bike (which I LOVE and have
not done much of this summer) and go around my 1.5 mile path. (twice) and then stop and rest.
Kansas/Nebraska winds predicted to blow 50 miles per hour - may have to go to the treadmill
in the basement for the 4 mile walk instead! Either way - I will be moving!!
Join me!! I'd love to hear what blessings you found in a Saturday work out!
Order your copy here! (Tami don't!)

If I'd known I was gonna live this long. I'd have taken better care of myself.
