Walking, walking, walking….

I have been keeping track of my walking. 10,000 steps or better a day. I’ve been meaning to take pictures of my pedometer and finally did just to show and tell. Here is the past three days.

Saturday….100_2054

Sunday…   100_2036

Monday…   100_2037

I was different yesterday and kept track of miles instead and I’m not doing to bad at all on getting the 10,000 steps in. Thank goodness it’s spring because winter time I was having troubles getting 7000 steps.

I made rhubarb sauce yesterday and as I was adding the sugar I’m thinking I want to eat this too, then I remember a tip I either read somewhere or heard about. You can use 1/2 the amount of sugar if you add a teaspoon or less of salt. So I made a spaghetti pot full of rhubarb sauce and was able to use about 3 cups of sugar, 1 tsp of salt and a package of raspberry jello and that was it. I made 6 quarts of sauce (that’s 48 cups of sauce) so it works to about 90 calories per 1 cup serving and it’s good for you too. Sue is going to send me a recipe for rhubarb cake that I’ll see if I can change a bit for the better for you and if it turns out I’ll share that one. If you have an rhubarb go and make something with it. It’s a good for you food. If you need some and your in my area, come and get it….I have plenty to share.

I have some pictures I need to post on my main blog so better get going. Then it’s time to head outside and play, carry in some wood and see what else the kids and I can get into.

Take care my friends, have a great and blessed day today.

Walking is so good for us, isn't it? I WAS keeping track of my steps, too, and doing well. I need to find that pedometer again -- today!

This is what I need! A pedometer! I know I don't get as much activity in each day! Good for you, you are doing so great!

I NEED TO WALK!! I am teriible about that. I use the excuse that I live in an area not condusive to walking, which is true. I do have the Leslie Sansone DVD's so I don't have an excuse.
