Oh the Humidity!

So I've come to the realization that I prefer scorching temperatures over high humidity. I don't think it even got to 80 degrees here today and I wanted to die. I was drenched with sweat after I finished my cardio and ab workouts and then we went to the zoo. My clothes were permanently stuck to my plump body when we got home. I've continued to eat well and tonight my mom is making a recipe out of my Light and Tasty cookbook for my Grandmother's 85th birthday.

My Grandmother is an extremely fit 85. She is still able to live in her own home and take care of a decent size lawn and garden. Her mind is also as sharp as a tack. My Grandmother was not in the best of health 30+ years ago. She had high cholesterol and was also overweight. Her doctor had a good talk with her and that's all it took. She's walked, lifted weights, and ate extremely healthy since I can remember. My Grandmother was using "skim" and "reduced fat" before it was cool to do so and as a result she has out lived both her parents by 30 years. She has had non-Hodgkins lymphoma for over 10 years now and she continues to beat it because she leads such a healthy life-style. My Grandmother is the perfect example of the healthy lifestyle I want to lead. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA KOSCIELAK!!!

Weight Loss Reason #23- I want to live to be a healthy and fit 85 just like my Grandma Koscielak!!!
