Hi thanks for stopping by .....

Sparkpeople changed my life. I had been bedridden for 12 years due to illness, in turn which lead to an increase of weight by 60 lbs. I needed to get back on my feet and healthy..... googled weight loss program and here my journey began.

I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidentally injured my knee, not able to exercise as much awaiting for knee surgery which took 2 years. Gained back 20 lbs. (ouch) following the surgery, family illness and related stress :( Time to get back to what I want and need ....... Watch out 2017 I'm back !!! :o) P.S. Family's doing great Yayyyy!!

Update .... the first part of 2017 .... I took an itty bitty pitty party (Migraines grrrrrr!) as well as a break from everything and anything I could..... 7 months left in 2017 ..... I'm committed!!!! xo

My Program:
Fitbit Charge HR :0)

1. Weigh, track and log everything I eat and drink. Enter all Nutritional Info. for every grocery purchased. It makes it so much easier for tracking.

2. Eliminate processed foods.

3. Ensure that all necessary Nutrients are met (i.e. fibre, calcium, sodium, etc.)

4. Drink 8-10 cups of water daily

5. Daily Intentional Exercises, unless I'm ill (i.e. Aerobics, dancing, weights, kettle bell, and stepping etc.) I get bored easily so I need to change it up in 10 minute intervals.

    emoticon Fun Spring Holiday Workout emoticon

    1 Dye about 100 eggs, raw preferably, bright and bold colors. Eggs outdated by a few months or more work best. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    2 Go outside and bunny hop around the yard hiding the eggs. Squat to put each egg in place. emoticon

    3 Gather a few good natured friends or family members you don't particularly care for. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    4 On the count of 3, run to find the eggs. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    5 Upon reaching an egg, squat down to pick it up, stand, and pitch it at the closest opponent. Alternate arms to insure an equal work out on both sides. emoticon

    6 Repeat until all eggs are broken beyond re-throwing. emoticon

    7 Don't forget that cleaning (up) can be a workout in and of itself. emoticon

    And that is a wonderfully fit way to celebrate any spring holiday. Aren't you ready to hop to it?
