When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.

When you see a person on a mountain top, just remember they did not fall there!

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 8+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 8+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

In the spring of 2012 I rediscovered hiking. It has become my passion. Okay, I'm obsessed. There is peace on the trail. It soothes my soul. And it builds some really mean leg muscle :)

My Goals:
1. Better nutrition: More veggies, more fruit, more whole foods, more water. It continues to be a challenge.

2. Improving my strength, endurance, and flexibility with continued regular workouts.

3. Achieving balance: Mind, body, and soul.

My Program:
1. Nutrition:
Focus will be on HYDRATION.
I'm terrible with water. Goal is 40 oz. a day. That's 5 cups. Even I should be able to do this.

2. Fitness:
Love to hike. You'll find me on the trail somewhere every weekend.

My favorite workout during the week is Zumba and/or kickboxing.

I also enjoy yoga to balance it all out.

3. Balance:
Aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

Thanks for the comment. Sometimes it just gets away from so I need to refocus.

Thanks for your reassuring comment on my blog. You're right - it will take time to readjust to maintaining. It's good to be reassured by someone who's been maintaining successfully for a long while!

Hope the eucalyptus tree path is helping keep you from being nuts. Are you well enough to get to the gym this week?
