Sunny walk and a tasty sammie

This morning it was beautiful out, so after doing some organizing in my room I decided to take a nice long 45-minute walk around the neighborhood with my Mom. It was a nice walk, not too strenuous but we went up a big hill so we definately got some good exercise in! Maybe we'll try for a power walk next time- my mom and I decided we're going to do a 5k walk in September, so we're going to work up to walking an hour at least once a week for the next month or so! Great exercise and bonding time!

My oatmeal pancake held me over SO well! I didn't need a snack in the morning; instead I ate an early lunch when we got back from walking, about 11:30- which meant the pancake held me for 4 hours, which breakfasts rarely do!
For lunch I put together a salmon-salad sandwich with 1 packet salmon, 1 tbsp dijon nayonaisse, 1 tbsp sliced olives and a few pieces sliced red onion, on sprouted grain bread with some spinach.
I had a few pepper strips and some grapes on the side. This lunch was the perfect size- and super filling!

There was a bit left in the bowl I used to mix, so I ate that too.

I'm going to spend the afternoon doing some more organizing and sorting; I'm preparing to move in a few weeks! I also plan on getting in some of those ab strengthening exercises as well. Anyone have any suggestions as to my morning question on arms??

That's awesome about you & your Mom--because I do the same with mine! We power walk about 5-6 miles a day together, and have been doing so for over a year. Our relationship has grown SO MUCH over that time. Yours will, too!
