September 4, 2011: I have to admit that I am really glad that this was the last day of recording My FOOD LOG.  It’s very time consuming and does shift the natural rhythm of things slightly.  I hope someone out there found this useful.  I will, however do another “Week-In-The-Life” sometime in October when the kids are in school full time to show how hectic a mom’s life can get with driving kids to and from schools and activities etc.

I wanted to show that I don’t spend my entire day ‘working out’.  As you can see it takes up a very small portion of my time, but I am consistent with it.  Eating well and staying hydrated is a priority. Living an active lifestyle comes naturally as result of being physical – the more physical one is, the more Non-Exercise Activity one tends to engage in.

Now that I’ve finished My FOOD LOG, I’ve compiled some pretty interesting and important information on Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, also known as N.E.A.T

October 17, 2011: This week shows that once I get the kids off to school I have from 8:30 am -2:30 pm to get my jobs done without distraction from the kids (house maintenance, grocery shopping and food preparation). Something is always bound to come up, from an emergency visit to the vet, unexpected volunteer work to do for the school in the form of meetings or emails to send etc. They are all little things but they are all important and take time. In order to not fall behind (which I often do), I effort to stay organized and on top of my schedule. I often reverse engineer my day around my workouts. Because I cannot workout on an empty stomach (yet must be well digested), I have to ensure that I fuel myself and time meals accordingly.
