My Goals:
Weight loss goal: 75 lbs

Improve overall health through weight loss and proper nutrition.

Reduce back and neck pain through exercise, weight loss and strength.

My Program:
I do not like the word diet. So I try not to use it.

My program involves eating less processed foods, less fast food, less fried/greasy foods.

Eating more fruits and vegetables.

Cooking low fat, low calorie foods.

Exercising 5-7 days per week. Gradually increasing the overall time to 60 minutes. Splitting that time between weight training and cardio.

Personal Information:
I'm in South Orange County CA. I'm originally from Pennsylvania.

I'm of Welsh and English decent.

I'm married to a great man for 5 years (in 2014). We ride a Harley and love to go to Laughlin and Vegas. We love riding and exploring California too.

We have no kids and do not plan on them. Our pets are our kids. We have 1 cat, 2 Russian tortoises and 1 corn snake and 2 ball pythons.

I am in healthcare and work as an auditor/coder. I'm a manager with a great company! I love what I do and have been doing this now for 27 years.

I am currently studying to obtain two additional credentials, which will give me 4 total.

I love to read and have a Nook HD+ with an extensive library of all types of books. My favorite are historical romance. I also love to read the Merck manual and learn more about human diseases.

I love nearly all types of music from Classic rock, Alternative to Opera and just about everything in between.

Other Information:
I love to read on my Nook HD. I'm studying for another credential for work as a healthcare auditor. I love to cook. I love all types of music and have a slightly eccentric or wacky sense of humor and personality.

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in Feb The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it back but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon

Today, as I am reflecting on what my goals for February should be, I came upon the following quote by Don Lancaster:

Most "impossible" goals can be met simply by breaking them down into bite size chunks, writing them down, believing them, and then going full speed ahead as if they were routine.

I hope this will help you as you set new goals or adjust the goals you currently have! Have a Wonderful Wednesday! emoticon emoticon

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or
whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?
After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation
comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell
