    No Hibernation For Me

    October is here, and the weather is changing (well, sort of).  Leaves are falling, and the plan for warmer clothes is happening (because we all need to shop for winter clothes in our house).  Although the weather is a bit confused right now, we will go with it.  The temperatures are still pretty warm for this time of year in my opinion.   But let’s get to the point.  The point of this post is not to talk about the weather, but about how changing a mindset to focus on my health and fitness again.  Join me and exercise your body this Fall!

Pinto beans, cornbread, and salmon patties every Wednesday at my granny’s.  Sundays we had the full spread of chicken, ham, greens, potatoes, etc.   No matter what I ate or didn’t eat, I was a skinny…
