I have been away from SP for a long time now and have gained fat, lost motivation and picked up some of my old bad eating habits. I'm sick of myself this way and am back at SP, on a limited basis, to get my motivation back! I would like my nice figure back too but I'm more concerned with regaining energy levels as well as my self respect!
My main goal is to get back to a consistent exercise program. I also want to baby step my way back into healthier eating.

I was recently diagnosed with severe COPD/Emphysema and my right hip dislocates from time to time. I don't want to use these problems as excuses but instead learn to exercise in ways that don't aggravate the hip and that will help me breathe better. If anyone out there has exercise ideas for me, please let me know!

My Goals:
12/30/2013
To lose fat, gain motivation and get back into a consistent lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise.

I also want to organize my house, declutter and get rid of all the excess junk that has been accumulating over the years that just add dust, which only aggravates my lung problems.


My Program:
12/30/2013
I like to work out at home with dozens of different workouts and programs. I am currently hooked on Jackie Warner and also like to work out with Jillian Michaels and The Supreme 90 Day Workout system. Variety keeps me interested.

I like to mix cardio and ST for fat loss and muscle building/toning and need to work on increasing my endurance and flexibility.

Personal Information:
I'm happily married with grown children, grandchildren, an awesome husband and great dog too!

I am a Medical Assistant and Phlebotomist and am also an Herbalist. I work part time in a naturopathic clinic.

I love to sing, garden, exercise, crochet, cook/bake, read and make herbal medicines and beauty products. My future goals are to keep bees and create lovely herbal honeys.

My son Josh lives in Whittier, Alaska and Airavee, the daughter, lives only a couple of miles from us with our three grandkids Tiva, Lily and Noah.

My husband and I like to camp, hike, fish and take long walks with our dog Fraulein. We love to grow our own vegetables and herbs. We hope to travel more in the future.

Other Information:
I would love to find a female fitness buddy in my area. I live in Kent, Washington, on the west hill.

HI, GUNNSGIRL, I saw your comment on Veg954's blog and wanted to correct a serious misunderstanding. Ketosis is not the same as ketoacidosis, which can only affect Type 1 diabetics, end-stage Type 2's, and occasionally from extreme intoxication.

~Benign dietary ketosis is a controlled, insulin regulated process which results in a mild release of fatty acids and ketone body production in response to low carbohydrate intake, and higher fat consumption.

~Ketoacidosis is a condition in which abnormal quantities of ketones are produced in an unregulated biochemical situation. In order to reach a state of ketoacidosis, the body has to be in a state of not producing enough insulin to regulate the flow of fatty acids and the creation of ketone bodies.

During the usual overnight fast the body's metabolism naturally switches into ketosis, and will switch back to glycolysis after a carbohydrate-rich meal in the morning.

Its just been another way to try things with the scale -- like a data tracking. It honestly doesn't affect me the way it used to in the past when I was way too obsessed over things. With my CTFO attitude, looking at it as data instead of a stress thing has changed in a way. I dont' know if that makes sense. I COMPLETELY understand why you don't weigh daily with your history. It may be something I stop doing as well, but it is something I am trying for now.
