Back on the Bandwagon

My mother pointed out last night that I hadn't blogged in awhile.  She's right.  It's been about a week.  But I told her that this is supposed to be a healthy living blog and it would really help if I had some healthy living to share.  Besides, I didn't want to torture you any further with talk about my job hunt or how awesome I am because I graduated.  I also didn't want to whine about the fact that I was sick all weekend, have been left with a residual cough for most of the week, and how it's rained here every day since Sunday.  No.  I don't think anyone really wants to hear about that.  So let's talk about things in my life that are healthy.

In case you have picked up on the hints in my last few posts, I've been busy.  I graduated, moved home, started back at my summer job full time, and am seeking permanent employment, which is my other full time job.  You can imagine that eating healthy and exercising have been put on the back burner.  Really, all these things are not excuses.  I know that I'm responsible for making choices, blah, blah, blah. 

Anyway, now that I'm settling back into a routine, I've made a conscious effort to get back on the bandwagon.  I'm still doing Weight Watchers and so I decided I needed to focus on one thing at a time.  This week I focused on staying within my points and making healthier food choices.  I weigh in tonight and I think it's going to pay off (I'll keep you posted).  I didn't want to overwhelm myself by trying to do that and workout a ton on top of.  Besides, with the cold I had, I thought it best to rest.

Last night I got out for my first workout in about two weeks.  My mom and I did a three mile walk around the neighborhood.  So my focus for this week is to exercise 3-4 times while still eating healthy.  Hopefully the weather cooperates a bit better this week so I can get outside!  Sunshine motivates me.  As does having my mom as a workout buddy.  We both do better when we're around each other because we push each other to go even when we don't really feel like it.  Plus it gives us time to chat.

I'll have some more interesting things to share in the next few days.  What have you been doing lately that's healthy?
