Fit Mommy Friday: WK 5: Snowed Under and Snowed IN~

It's been a very weird week.  We got hit with an ice storm with loads of snow and I've been STUCK right in this house without my YMCA trips to exercise, but I wasn't completely idle.  It has been an exhausting week because for the first time since my daughter as in K and my son in 5th grade that they have been in a public school~an online virtual K12 school...and we began on Monday!  Picture the haggard, sleep deprived Mom with her house dress and slippers~MOST of the week! LOL...Here's just HOW it went with ME...

Food was good in that I continue to be sugar free/white flour free, but I have noticed that I might be eating more...I dunno, honest...b/c UNLESS I measure, I can't visualize proper portions very well...sooo it's obvious I haven't been measuring! Oh boy! THIS can be trouble...yes it can!  Today makes 18 weeks and counting! God is good!

Exercise is different this week. I have done some movement and house cleaning stuff to be up and going all week. I spend two days out in stores hauling groceries or other good in and out of stores...I stayed pretty busy doing it on Sat and Monday both.  Sat I got to go to my fave grocery where we buy all the fresh foods.  I bought fresh pineapple, oranges, bananas, onions, greens, fresh green beans, vine ripened tomatoes, zucchini....uh...all sorts of good food to eat mostly raw and fresh. I am convinced food is a major key to health!

Okay, this sums it up pretty much except to say that I am looking to God to help me combat my poor health issues.  I am obese and for my weight I do well, but I am just too darned big~God help me! And my exercise is not what others can do, I know.  But to be a Fit Mommy I have to start somewhere with movement~I guess I am at or BELOW Level One~but grateful to be able to share with you all~Thanks for your encouragement. I am reading Max Lucados' Outlive Your Life, the Recovery Bible and the Life Recovery Workbook as well as For Today, and Beth Moore's Breaking Free.  These all add something to my walk with the Lord towards health.

Thanks again for stopping by and checking on me~If you haven't done so, check out the other fit mommies   HERE!

Hey, we've all got to start somewhere, and I think you're doing great! Keep it up and be patient with yourself and your progress.

Eating veggies and fruit is a wonderfully healthy thing to be doing and should help you keep going. Just keep on staying away from all that white stuff!

By the way, I LOVE your black kitty in the sidebar! Once I even got her to swat at the cursor!

You are working so hard and have lots to be proud of! I'm proud of you! You inspire me.

I answered your question about liver cleansing on this week's fit mommy post.

All of the fruits and veggies sound delicious! Yum!

We all have to start where we are at and go from there. You're making strides in the right direction, so don't discount that.

Keep up the great job!!
