Well, first of all, I want to say that the owl cupcakes were a hit at the birthday party. My daughter said she was ready to call off the party because our sweet little birthday girl was having a tantrum about something, and declared it "the worst party ever!" before it even started.
Once the party started all was fine, and she declared it "the best party ever!" at the end of the day.

How am I doing you ask?
I set a goal to get on my elliptical every day....even if it was only 3 minutes, my goal was to start an exercise habit. EPIC FAIL! I did it one day.....after that things kept getting in the way or I totally forgot a couple days. I'm not very happy with myself but I'm not surprised really. I'm not the athletic type and I don't like to sweat.
One of the comments I received suggested the 5/2 diet. I have done a little research about it and think it might be worth a try. The idea is to eat very low calorie (fast) for 2 days out of the week. The other days you eat normal meals. I am sure that means healthy and proper portions, not eating 3 cupcakes at a birthday party (which I did).
So the struggle continues. I need to exercise for heart health reasons. I am going to try to get some form of exercise every day except Sunday. I can't do the blasted elliptical everyday. The plus with it is that it doesn't hurt my bad foot, but I really don't enjoy it. I can bike ride, I am going to try walking a bit more, and I can do yoga ( as long as I am careful with my foot).
Til next time,
