Last night I jumped back on the exercise train and did about 40 minutes of the Kinect Your Shape fitness game. I chose the Personal Trainer portion of the program and stuck with the "beginner" section. I made it through three rounds (doing the first two rounds twice). Once again, my legs felt like rubber bands when I was finished. Determined to get through Round 4, I strapped up and hit the Start button. And that's where it stopped. Clearly I need to work on my balancing skills, because the exercise just about put me on the ground! I did wake up this morning with a nice kink in my back, but I do plan to exercise tonight, Lord willing and the creek don't rise (thanks to my Papa for that phrase).
On another topic, we all know that a really important element of trying to live a healthier lifestyle involves proper food selection. This is a HUGE issue for me, because I really can't think of any food that I don't like (except my mom's hamloaf, BARF!). But more importantly, I find my blood sugar taking a serious dive around 10:00 a.m. and again around 3:00 p.m. I am one of those people who gets the shakes when I don't eat enough. I have tried to choose snacks that I know will provide me a protein boost and that also sustain my appetite until lunch or dinner. Maybe I'm doing this part wrong? Maybe my issue is that I don't eat enough?
As I am a beginner in this process, I am open to any and all advice that you have concerning snacking tips!
