Valuable lessons learned this Summer and Fall living life in Balance.
October 2014
I am near the halfway mark in my weight loss journey. Now's the time for me to assess what new changes I can make, in my daily schedule and how to get back to losing weight once more.
With life becoming very busy this past summer I found I was not keeping up with all of my new habits. One of the best things for me was clean eating. So it's time to get back to doing what works. I will begin charting my nutrition and fitness. So I know how many calories I have used, as I take my meals, and stay in range. That is what worked as the pounds came off, and so it's back to that, and I am ready for change.

Spring 2014
I took a 5% Challenge this Spring 2014, and am I ever glad I did. I lost 10% who wouldn't be happy with that?
I began Tracking my Nutrition, even before I knew how to use the tracker, same for my Fitness.
I began to WANT to track my calories, to see if I actually could eat 1200 to 1500 Calories, in order to lose a pound or two a week.
Who knew it was possible to be full, and happy with what I ate to stay within that range.
Plus I was seldom hungry. Except for the joy of being hungry and planning my next meal. Not top loading calories, on a full stomach. Who knew I could change old habits. Or stop mindless grazing?
It can happen for you too.
Join me, as I Journey to SlimLand. It is possible, even for you. If I can do this, and I never thought I could... then YOU CAN TOO!
My family are all eating and living healthy, and we completed a 3.5 mile run, (I walked), but we did this together. And it was Awesome. And we did it for an excellent cause. I will overhaul my page and update as I progress.

May 2013 - I haven't reached my weight goal. I have watched my scale and it's gone down and up again. I need to restart, and make my permanent change my goal. Permanent Lifestyle Change. I have no other choice left open to me, but to get the job done.

Sept 12 2011My current GOAL is to find Success in CONSISTENCY Making Good CHOICES 1 at a time(Thanks DARKTHOR) Planning Healthy, Low-Cal Meals Planning & Tracking Calories & Exercise Enjoying the process, and the changes in my lifestyle because its all part of the Journey. If this doesn't bring me closer to Goal Weight, then I'm not following closely enough. I'm Getting COMMITTED NOW because CHANGE HAPPENS NOW

My Program:
I have always been a walker. 3 Season I walk 3.8 miles almost daily. But New England has 4 foot snow drifts, and coldest Feb in 110 years. Hopefully March is warmer, and I will go to the gym 4 days a week.
I am training and gearing up to run my first ever 5k in March
When the snow melts, I will begin riding my bike once more.

Personal Information:
I'm over 30 yrs married & have a great family who are my biggest cheerleaders. Putting myself first, has been a life lesson. I am slowly making this lifestyle change. I walked 350 of the 500 Mile trail in Spain - Camino de Santiago. It was life changing.

Other Information:
People who fail in life are people who find lots of excuses. It's never too late for a person to recognize that they have potential in themselves.
Benjamin Carson

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
– Sir Winston Churchill

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."

“If you want to make good use of your time, you've got to know what's most important and then give it all you got.”.... unknown

Don't base your decisions on the advice of those who don't have to deal with the results.
