For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Day 2 – I Did It!

 

10,159 steps just before I left work last night! I was really excited to see that 10,000. I did have a cardio workout in the morning and I think that's what put it over the top. Added sugar intake was solid at 39 g. I think I see the culprit. My New Lifestyle Diet food only added up to 22g for the whole day. Had steak and grilled vegetables for lunch with no added sugar there. Then, at night, I had that toasted coconut vanilla Activia Greek Yougurt. The package says 17g of sugar. Wow. 17g in just one food. I think this is where I will start figuring out how to make a change. Koko Fuel recommends plain Greek yogurt with a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon mixed in it. I think I'm going to try that for next week.

Now for the third part of the challenge – doing the waist to hip ratio and writing it down to compare at the end of the month. Going to get that done today. And now it's time to begin today's 10,000 step goal – to Centerville Koko to do some cardio, home to shower and change, then off to work in Harwich from 12-6. That should do it! What's your 10,000 step plan for today?

And so, as another day goes by, I must remember lasting change occurs gently over time, in bits and pieces tweeked and dealt with everyday, and…I have written.
