Making Small But Subtle Healthy Changes

Good Monday Morning All;

It was a glorious weekend here on the East Cost, aka the "DMV" (DC, MD, VA not dept of motor vehicles for my outta town peeps).  What a better time to start making small changes to improve my health and heart.

Just after bike ride - feeling good ya'll

Cut back on sugar (whaaaat! But I LOVE Sugar) 

Like not having candy or chocolate anytime I want - this has been going on since Halloween people!  It's February!  That means not having 2 Luigi's Cherry Ice's every night (last night not even one. Whoa big progress for me).  Not grabbing a pack of peanut M&M's in the a.m. for extra energy or when hubby runs into gas station saying NO to Reese Peanut Butter Cups ( ahhhhhh you delicious devil you).


Made Healthy Banana Bread

Will MSG Kate and get thoughts - I also may add zucchini and ground flax seed from +Common Market for added health benefits - I did use chopped walnuts.  Now this along with my ginger kombucha from +HEX Ferments is a great way to start my day - try it out and let me know your thoughts.  

Next on agenda - TO MOVE MORE EACH DAY!
10,000.00 steps each day - I got to just over 7.5K yesterday - not too bad - however I soon discovered I desperately need new tennis shoes.  Here I come +If The Shoe Fits, a small shop located in Frederick, MD with great customer service.

Rode bike 2miles (leisurely through my neighborhood - flat easy trail) STILL COUNTS PEOPLE!

Will add a video of some kind 3 times each week Ab video first (goodbye Muffin top)

Pray first each day - while my coffee is brewing - before checking phone or tuning on the news.  Taking just a few minutes to be grateful, hopeful, and to be loving each day (that includes to myself)!
