My walk this morning felt much easier. I was more steady and actually took my hands off the railings for a few. I didn't add minutes but I did increase speed so I went farther. I got up to 2.5 today. I think I could get used to this. I know this about walking for exercise: No matter how bad you feel when you start you feel better by the time you've finished.
Last night's meal was a nibbler's delight. I had fresh zucchini strips, red pepper strips, and organic baby carrots with a scoop of raw hummus to dip them in. I topped them off with an Activia prune yogurt and a bowl of sliced strawberries with a little brown sugar sprinkled on them. I also brewed some Lipton's Peach Tea and put it in the fridge to cool. So today I can have iced tea. I'm starting to crave fresh fruits and vegetables. That's a good thing !
For lunch today I had a baked chicken breast w/stuffing, carrots, and green beans w/almonds. I also had a cup of watermelon chunks. I wasn't going to eat the stuffing (it came w/the chicken) but I couldn't resist a bite. It was SO salty. Prepared foods are beginning to taste almost unbearably salty. That's good thing. My body isn't craving salt.
