I tried to eat healthier today and I think I did pretty good.  I made a trip to the grocery store and bought fresh brussels sprouts, green beans and butternut squash which I roasted.  My kids loved all the new veggies I fixed.  I will never eat brussel sprouts anyway but roasted again.  The green beans were ok but I think I prefer them boiled and the butternut squash was ok, it was kind of like eating pumpkin, the kids ate theirs with brown sugar and cinnamon. 

Well I thought I was just going to be lazy again tonight and not walk but I got up and got ready and hit the road.  I'm so proud of myself and now remember why I like walking so much.  I walked 3.5 miles in about an hour I think......I forgot to time myself.  It felt so good to sweat and just keep walking and pushing myself, you would think I would be tired right now but I feel so energized.  Walking is also a good stress reliever, I just turn my mp3 player on my favorite songs and tune out the whole world.  I love walking, now if I can just remember that on the days when I want to be lazy.
