Nearing the end of the 5K on May 19, 2012. I did it again in May 2014--FASTER!





Skiing at Breckenridge in Feb. 2014.





First class seats on the plane--wish I could do that ALL the time!

Focusing on me and positive changes

My focus has to be on me if I want to make the positive changes I want. I want one change--less weight! That "negative" would be a "positive"! I also want to make exercise fit into EVERY day--even when I have to work.

The Spring 5% challenge is about to start. I did LOUSY in the Winter Challenge based on weight loss but great in working out. I AM going to be more diligent this month about REALLY getting the exercise--I will be running a 5K in May so need to train for that. I want ...

The Spring 5% challenge is about to start. I did LOUSY in the Winter Challenge based on weight loss but great in working out. I AM going to be more diligent this month about REALLY getting the exercise--I will be running a 5K in May so need to train for that. I want to finish under 36 minutes--we'll see.

I am still to find the place where I can eat and exercise and keep my weight stable. I need to lose some weight (so much for maintaining!) and then I hope that I'll "stay put" lower than the 145-147. That is alright--I'm in size 10 instead of 16!

I will continue to follow my healthy habits, watch my food intake and maintain--that's the goal! I get to the gym at least 3 times a week for ST and do cardio at least 3 times a week--for 30 minutes minimum.

I am a leader in the 5% Challenge on my team and active in one other team--that is about all I can keep up with!

Your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is the usual number that you would burn during the day without any exercises put in (house chores, cooking, etc). You need to add this number to your calories burnt and subtract the food eaten. The number you would get is your Daily Calorie Differential which should be Minus 500 or more. The more the better.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. You are so right in saying we need to celebrate every single day we are given. That's hard to remember, but so very important at this point. If we don't make it to 50 years, at least we will have all the years before that to remember and enjoy!

You asked about how I cut my calories back. Well, your start page has your fitness tracker on it, if you hit the "Edit" underneath it, you'll find your workout goals, if you shorten your exercise, you'll shorten your calories needed numbers on your nutrition page. However, according to my doctor's formula, which I have found works better for me (although SP's are close to it), is pretty simple. You take your goal weight and multiply it by 12. Each pound =12 calories. That's about how much the body needs for each pound we carry, if we are at goal. My goal weight is 115, so my calorie count I shoot for everyday is around 1380. However, using the nutrition tracker communicating with my fitness, I was given way too many calories by SP, so now I am just taking Doc's medicine and hoping for the best!!! Good luck and God bless, emoticon
