low lights and high lights

First, the lowlights. I never made it to the Expo because we had several family matters that required immediate attention. But, as you may know, I started working yesterday. Since my working hours start after 10 AM and I am working full-time from home, I decided that I could not turn into a total hermit. I made two decisions: I would start low and steady and the snacks had to be healthy.
For the last two days I have done at least 40 minutes of exercise. On Monday I did 20 minutes on the bike and walked one mile. I also finally took the time to find out how long it is taking me to walk that mile. Thanks to the pain on my leg (which I hope the other exercises will help with that), I am taking 21 minutes to walk one mile. I hope that by the end of this month I will be able to drop it to 18 min.
Today, it was raining. I have two work out routines in my agenda (one for good weather and one in case of rain). I did 20 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes mat Pilates workout. I feel great.
Also, on the food front: for snack yesterday I ate a plate of mini carrots with organic dressing and for lunch I had a small plate of whole grain pasta and a tiny serving of meat sauce. Oh, and I drank enough water to drown a horse.
I am doing better, one step at a time. How are you doing?
