So, Vacation is over, we are back at home and work/school as well. Classes begin on the 10th, but I already am back at work at GSU (which I love doing) and doing school related things... like editing a paper I am presenting at a conference in February.
The getting back in shape efforts have been going really well.
Yesterday I logged a little over four miles, today around three. I ate pretty healthy (apart from the coconut cake my mother made me for my birthday) and felt great.
For dinner we did a really nice and savory salad with some toasted bread that was awesome.
I used a butter lettuce mix
crumbled feta and some castlvetrano olives
For the dressing I used some aged balsamic vinegar and olive oil with fresh lemon juice and everything tasted fresh, tart, and amazing.
I am not overweight or trying to become uber skinny, but at forty... I think it is the right time to get into a routine for my health and stick to it without making it drastic and unrealistic.
like... I have guinness and its amazing and its not going anywhere.
But... taking on more active hobbies (the extension of hiking is happening), eating better, and just trying to overall live a more healthy life mentally and physically has really helped already.
So here I am on day 2!
