Ashley Suarez-Ortiz, News Clerk writes: It has been a very long time since I last wrote a blog and I apologize for my absence.
I am happy to report however that despite my lack of keeping everyone in the loop that I have been finding ways to exercise and have been able to trim off some of the fat.
I still have much more work to do and I am glad to have the readers out there to keep encouraging me and I hope that I have encouraged some of you.
What I have done so far
I have began eating far more fiber and multi-grain enriched foods. Instead of eating something full of sugar and fat, I will grab a snack that is far healthier but still tastes great. One of my favorite things to eat are Multi-Grain Cheerios.
I have also cut back on the amount of soda I drink. Now, instead of soda, I will substitute tea or water, making it much healthier for me.
I have also began walking more. When I take my lunch breaks at work, I walk to my lunch destination instead of driving. I also enjoy going to the Farmer's Market in downtown Raleigh every Wednesday. I also like to take walks with my kids on the weekends and we spend several hours at the park, running and playing together. I get my exercise and get to spend time with my kids at the same time.
These are just a few things that I have done but it normally is the small things that count.
I hope that all the readers out there are doing well and please feel free to leave your comments below.
