It feels so good

It seems universal that after embarking on a healthy lifestyle change , variations in your routine make you feel really off, and it is no difference in this house. While we did not do bad over Easter, it did mean a day of ingesting a lot of refined carbs, bad fats and the addition of refined sugars. We all felt off yesterday, but good news is that with a day of returning completely to the new norm made us all feel better by evening's end.

The weather was not terribly cooperative yesterday so we wound up going for a nice walk in Target. To some who routinely use gyms and such this does not sound like exercise, but your muscles don't really care where you move. While simple walking seems like nothing,it gets your lymphatic system working efficiently as well as getting your heart and lungs working at a slightly increased rate. That will help you clear the mental funk and start those feel good chemicals flowing in your bloodstream. Store walking also gives you the opportunity to take a look at things you may miss normally when you go and find yourself focused on a list or watching the time. As a result of my walking yesterday i discovered that our Target carries the Arnold's Sandwich Thins, and I finally get to try them this week !
