Day 1 of 7 day detox

Hubby and I started our 7 day detox. I mentally prepared myself for the worst. But it wasn't too bad.I had moments of hunger pains and moments of nausau.

Prevent Weekend Warrior Woes

I have to remind myself sometimes to slow down when the weather warms up and the days are pleasingly longer. I will tend to overdo it outdoors while losing track of time, only to come in past dark when it is bedtime and still not have had dinner. Oh boy, now what.Slow down until I am acclimated to the heat. The mosquitoes and gnats help in that department with all the stopping to smack and swat away.Have a container of water at the ready, to drink and splash on myself.Wear a wide brimmed hat to keep the harsh sunlight off the face and out of the eyes.

What's your summertime fitness plan?

It's often helpful to look ahead at the summertime and think about how you're going to take care of you... both with your healthy food choices and your actvitiy level.  The summer most often means changes in schedules and routines.  So a little bit of planning can go a long way in helping you stay on track with your health and fitness goals.  Consider the farmers markets and all the wonderful fresh produce for your summer meals and events.  Likewise, remember that activity is what's important, not necessarily structured exercise.
