i've upped my walk to 3 miles--60 minutes, and thats where its going to stay. that burns approx. 400 calories for me at the moment and that is perfect.
i weighed in on friday and i had lost 9 lbs!!! then easter weekend with some extra eating and CANDY, so i'm going to be either happy or sad come this friday. but i'm not going to let it derail me.
the perfect numbers for me seem to be 1600 tops calories with 400 burned. i lose weight and i'm not hungry. i'm trying to stick to this goal.
i am a fan of eating a good percentage of my food as raw food. i don't cook veggies as a general rule.
once a week i buy a lot of produce and then clean and chop everything into containers for salad. then i can top them with my protein.
i try to use approx 50 % organic. i heard once that the health benefits of the vegetables balanced it out. i'm not going to say that is true or not, but in the winter when nothing is growing here in maine you have to do the best you can with the resources at hand.
a beautiful thing.
another beautiful thing--my sweet grand baby sophie!
