Today is a day full of family/friend time, great food and hopefully a day off of work! It may be a day to cheat in our healthy lifestyle a bit and I say go for it!! Once in a while it's okay to cheat. I think that allows us to stay strong most of the other days.
I started off my day with a 5 mile walk over 7 different bridges in downtown GR. There was a bunch of people there. I walked with my parents and one of my friends. At first I didn't know if I wanted to get up for an 8am walk, but I knew it would be a great way to exercise. It turned out to be a great walk!! I got over 10,000 steps just in that walk. Then I followed that up with a breakfast consisting of two pieces of wheat toast, two pieces of bacon, 1 scrambled egg, and some potatoes with onions, which I seasoned with ketchup and salt. :) Some days you need to cheat.
To you and yours, staying with your healthy lifestyle or cheating a bit today, I hope you all enjoy your Labor Day!! And if you have any healthy foods you ate at your cookouts or an activity you did to burn off those burgers and dogs, please share it here!! I'd love to hear about it!
