Weekend workouts

The end of my third week went like this: Saturday I did a lot of running around and by the end of the day I felt like I had done enough walking (walked the dogs for about 30 - 40 minutes in the evening as well), Sunday I did a bit of housework and walked fpr a little under 1.5 hours (to and from a short birthday celebration for my friend's daughter). Lots of light activity although Sunday's walking was brisk, especially on the way there (definitely just above the comfort zone for most of it).

This concludes my third week of exercising every day I can besides Fridays. I have missed a couple days or done a light workout a couple times but overall I am happy with my efforts and will continue them.

I feel better. My back issues are still driving me insane but not as much as before and not as much during the day (nights are slightly better too but still an issue). I feel stronger and feel like I am slimming down (really, I haven't actually lost much weight but that is a secondary goal).

The one thing I have finally learned, I hope, is that staying fit is a life-long thing. I can't just slack off for years at a time (and it is easy to do that). I have to exercise now, and forever. :) And eating well is a big part of that. I don't need to be a health food freak but it is definitely harder to get a workout in with a belly full of greasy, salty, low-nutrition food.
