It's time to get serious.

I've been sort of half-hearted trying to lose weight. Now it's time to really buckle down. I've stayed pretty much steady, but I'd like to see some of it go away. Which means I'll have to start moving more than what I do at work. There's so many times I can fit a few minutes of exercise in but I don't. Time to get off my lazy butt.

Member Since: 5/12/2009

SparkPoints: 57,499

Fitness Minutes: 11,396

My Goals:
1. Lose at least one inch off my waist, abdomen and hips by January 31

2. Lose 5 pounds by the end of January

3. Be more attentive to my eating habits, both in portion control and what I eat.

My Program:
1. I'm trying to watch what I eat better, so I can indulge in what I love (banana splits!) once in a while without feeling guilty.
2. I'm trying to be more active. Being in school means a lot of computer work, so I have to make an effort to move. My 2 year old granddaughter is good at helping me do that!
3. Drink more water and less diet pepsi.
4. Remember I have a wedding coming up next year and I want to fit in my dress.


Personal Information:
I live in Minnesota, have three living children, two lovely stepdaughters, four sons in law, and six grandchildren. I'm a registered nurse have my master's degree in nursing education. I teach in a community college nursing program. I love to knit (and crochet), read, listen to music, watch movies and spend time with my husband who is retired.

Other Information:
I have been a fan of Dick Francis's mysteries for years. In his book Straight, there is a quote that I try to emulate: May I deal with honour, may I act with courage, may I achieve humility. I think it's a great way to try to live.

emoticon Hoping you choose to live your life with the following emoticon

I Choose....
to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete;
I choose self esteem, not pity.
I choose to listen to my
inner voice,
not the random
opinion of others.

Have a Spectacular Sunday!!
Lots of ((((((((HUGS)))))))))) & Smiles

~~~~The Five "W"'s of Life~~~~

WHO you are is what makes you special.
Do not change for anyone.

WHAT lies ahead will always be a mystery.
Do not be afraid to explore.

WHEN life pushes you over,
you push back harder.

WHERE there are choices to make,
make the one you won't regret.

WHY things happen will never be certain.
Take it in stride and move forward.

These 5 "W"'s are
A Wonderful Way to Wake-up on Wednesday!!!
Enjoy the day!!
