Whew! This winter was tough – with snow piles higher than I am tall, and living in a neighborhood where there are no sidewalks…getting exercise has been tough these past four months! When I was home and it was light out (kinda), neighbors were either leaving for work or coming home and with the snow narrowing the streets; it was risky to even go for a walk.
We shoveled a path for our pup so he could get out – it’s kind of scary when the snow is two or three feet higher than you are – but that didn’t afford the kind of exercise he needed either. He’s a dog who barks anyway, and you can imagine how he is now as he’s going stir crazy in the house.
Spring is here, the snow has melted and it is daylight longer. What a blessing! Who cares that the pup needs a bath after the walk? It’s great to get out and MOVE.
Moving isn’t enough, of course, for me; I really have to change my eating habits too. Two weddings and a house remodel project require me to be in better shape than I have been. Not to mention, it’s important for my general health. I have been doing great so far, happy to see changes in my shape and happy that my clothes are not so snug. Even so, it’s tough to make the change and fight those urges for yummy sweets – particularly when, say, there’s a birthday or other festive occasion and there is a CAKE.
I love cakes. Cake – cakes and DQ® cakes. And we all know that DQ makes WONDERFUL cakes with delicious DQ soft serve. My daughter’s birthday is this weekend, and she wants a DQ cake. What am I going to do? I am going to purchase a box of DQ No Sugar Added Bars….I think the DQ No Sugar Added Fudge Bars (50 calories for one bar) will be perfect…though there are the Vanilla Orange bars (60 calories for one bar) too…. What are you doing to change your habits and make healthy choices?
