National More Herbs Less Salt Day

In the past I have written quite a few articles about the benefits of herbs.  You can read about them here … here …and here.

It just so happens that today is also the day that I have decided to get back on track once again.  For some reason I am just never very good at sticking to my weight loss goals during the summer months.  But I am happy to say that this summer, due to all the activity it has brought,  I have managed to only gain back 10 of the 28 pounds that I lost at the beginning of the year.

I keep falling off the horse but the important part is that I keep dusting myself off and getting back on.  And on and on and on….

I have missed Zumba tremendously!  And probably would have stuck with it had the room, in which it is performed, didn’t get to be 100*F by May.   I prefer to have a cold enviroment to work out in which is why on most 32*F mornings you will catch me out walking the neighborhood.

So as it being National More Herbs Less Salt Day, what a better day to start my health and fitness goals up again.  I said that 2016 was going to be my year and I still have 4 months to go.  I know that I can do this.

I have got the FitBit all charged up and ready and as soon as I drop the kids off for their first day of school this mama is off to the gym.  Now I will do good all week with my eating habits and no alcohol but come the weekend, we are attending a Red Sox baseball game where yes I will be indulging in clam chowder served in a sourdough bread bowl and consuming large amounts of beer.  And that will be my last hoorah with alcohol for 30 days.

Yeah I wish I looked this good as a hot mess

I am going to find a 30 day cleanse and stick to it.  This will include a lot of smoothies with a lot of herbs in them.  I was just in the garden last night picking fresh spinach and basil.  Basil grows like a weed in case anyone is interested.  I cleaned out my garden beds at the beginning of spring.  Broke up all the soil.  And even put some new soil in there and the basil from last year…CAME BACK!

Here’s to getting on a health kick once again….(to be continued)

    1. I love Zumba but discovered today that I will only be able to attend classes sometimes because of my 3 littles soccer practice schedules. But I will still be hitting the gym every morning after I drop the kids off. Congrats on the pounds lost. I got on the scale this morning after not getting on it for about a month and I had gained back more than I thought but I am determined that by the end of this year I will hit my goal weight.
