Kid's Surprise

This is a great idea from the 3 moms. They arranged this get-together to surprise our kids with presents. It was amazing to see how they really appreciated simple gifts. You can see from their eyes the moment they opened the gifts the sparkle. This is nice, we got to do this at least once a year.

Online Exercise Journal

I spent a few minutes on the web trying to find an online exercise journal so I can track my progress. I found FitDay. Not only that it tracks daily exercise activities but also tracks diet. Then based on the journal entry, answers fitness questions, including:

  • How many calories am I eating?
  • What's my fat/carb/protein calorie breakdown?
  • How many calories does each food contribute?
  • Am I getting my recommended requirements of vitamins and minerals?
  • How many calories do I burn?
  • Where am I burning my calories (exercise, BMR, lifestyle)?
  • Am I achieving a caloric balance?
  • How many miles did I run (swim, walk, bike) over the past few weeks?
  • How is my weight changing?
  • Is my weight within a healthy range for my height?
  • Am I achieving my personal weight goal?
  • Am I achieving my personal nutrition goals?
The chart above shows how healthy(?) I am at the moment. There is a way to enter fitness goals. My goal is to be 150 lbs. by the end of the year. Let's track my progress!

Let's Take A Walk!

After years of no exercise whatsoever, this week I started walking just 30 minutes a day. Oh what a feeling! (from a song, if I may borrow). A difference it makes indeed.
