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: 59,316

Fitness Minutes: 11,677

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.

~ ~What does CHANGE mean for you?~ ~

The 3 C's of LIFE:
CHOICES, CHANCES, CHANGES
You must make a
CHOICE to take a CHANCE,
or your life will never CHANGE.

If you focus on results,
you will never change.
If you focus on change,
you will get results.

I'm sending you lots of skinny vibes for your weight loss...I'm a little on edge myself having just returned from almost a month of vacation eating with abandonment...time to buckle down and get back on the healthy wagon! Have a great Thursday my friend! emoticon

~~~~~Why Complicate Life?~~~~~

Missing somebody? .....Call
Wanna meet up? .....Invite
Wanna be understood? .....Explain
Have questions? .....Ask
Don't like something? ....Say it
Like something? ....State it
Want something? ....Ask for it
Love someone? .....Tell it

We have just one life...
Keep it simple.

So, Enjoy Yours...Each & Every Day!!!
