My trainer said to do apples (squeeze the butt) and suck in the gut as I plank. Soooooo, I do.

I went on a walk twice this week  around a big block by my house, 3.35 miles to be exact. Both were brisk walks, one with my husband, we were talking, so I didn’t take the weights, when you talk and brisk walk, it is hard to keep the breathing going right…and one by myself, I took 2 3lbs weights to up the challenge.

It was hard. There is a big hill, it climbs 134 feet in 3/4 miles. And I did it! Weights and all!

I am so excited for the results I am seeing. The outline of my muscles are showing, my clothes are fitting better and I am feeling great. I have more energy, it is getting easier to exercise, go up and down the stairs and to keep on going.

I am doing this. Life is great! This year has the makings of the very best year yet!

I no longer live to eat delicious foods…I eat to live a delicious life!
