A Change of Focus

The first half of my journey was very much weight oriented. My focus was solely on the scale. Now that I'm halfway to my goal...I want to increase my cardio fitness and get into better shape. I've never been in wonderful shape and I'm not saying I want to run marathons or anything...but I sure would enjoy being in good shape. Before Christmas, as I stepped up my walking, I found that my weight loss began to slow. I've determined that if that happens now, I'm not going to worry about it...at least for a few weeks.

It's a beautiful, warm day here. Ground's covered in snow, the sky is a gorgeous shade of blue and it didn't even occur to me until it was too late in the day that we should have spent some time doing something outside. I said to my husband that I wish my first inclination had been to go outside for today instead of watching a new video we have. Hopefully as physical activity becomes easier and more enjoyable, that'll be more of a focus. I do have 3 children after all who would greatly benefit from being outside and the activity that comes along with that. We have walking paths across the street from us...I have NO excuse. Except perhaps my 10 month old baby. But still...
