Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
As I've always said, I will forever have to count calories and exercise in order to be in the best shape that I can. As long as I continue to do so, I will continue to strive to be healthier with each and every passing year.
Now that I have basically achieved my weight loss goal, it is more important than ever to stay on track and get that exercise in religiously. I want to improve even more. I want to be stronger, more agile, and have lots of energy. I also want to have a good mental attitude and maintain the circle of friends and family that love me and that I love back.
Spark People is a wonderful motivating group of like-minded people trying, like me, to improve overall health and well-being. It's a support group like none other.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ and although I slip up big-time, I try to remember that we need to treat others as we would like to be treated. The old "Do Unto Others"...still rings true today, probably even more so than it did when I was growing up. Seems it takes a conscious effort to do so today whereas in the past, people seemed to be kinder to each other.
My goal is to watch what I eat daily, exercise, and stay at my goal.
I am now concentrating on running rather than walk/running. We'll see how that goes. I'm up to 4 miles without stopping. My goal is to be able to do a 10K.
Be more encouraging and kinder to others despite any differences we may have. I will make a concious effort to NOT JUDGE ANYONE!!
Eat between 1200-1500 calories/day
Run 4x/week or per training schedule.
Ab work 4x/week
Weights 3X week
I live in SC with my husband. I have 4 grown children: my oldest daughter lives with her husband in Portland, OR; Number 2 daughter lives with her husband in Houston, TX and is expecting her 1st baby(my 1st grandbaby) at the end of March.
My #3 child, my oldest son, single, lives in Austin, TX and #4, the baby of the family, my other son, lives in Charleston, SC.
I work in the Real Estate business, own a Century 21 Franchise and LOVE to do crossword puzzles. I set aside every Sunday to do 2-3.
I've been with SP since September, 2008 and have gotten so much support and encouragement from so many wonderful people.
I love SP!!

It is cold here in Florida too. Where do you live in SC? My brother lives in Greenville and I lived in Orangeburg thousands of years ago. Okay, not thousands, just 43 years ago. Different life!
