A little spark in my life

It's time to spring clean here on my Spark page. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 3 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. Whatever it is, I want to be healthy. This winter has been a tough one. I have lost ground with my weight and my physical condition. It's time to spark! With that in mind, I am going to actively participate in the 5% Spring Challenge. This time I am a Tiger Monarch.

It's time to spring clean here on my Spark page. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 3 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. Whatever it is, I want to be healthy. This winter has been a tough one. I have lost ground with my weight and my physical condition. It's time to spark! With that in mind, I am going to actively participate in the 5% Spring Challenge. This time I am a Tiger Monarch.

5% Challenge goals
1. I will eat three healthy meals and record each thing I eat.
2. I will choose healthy snacks.
3. I will exercise at least 10 minutes each day.
4. I will record my efforts on my team page.
4. I will encourage my teammates by visiting their pages and blogs.

I am in a constant battle to keep my weight down. I have been a yo-yo dieter since forever. Right now I'm just trying to get back to my first "got-to-lose" weight almost 40 years ago. Losing hasn't been the problem. Getting my mind set is usually where I first get stuck. Once I'm in, I'm all in and the weight comes off! The problem: I don't keep it off. I quit writing down my food and making healthy food choices. I love chocolate, fried foods, pastries, cookies . . . and I like baking. When I didn't have something yummy to eat, I made it.

SparkPeople has solved most of my problems if I will just keep on using the services offered. I like all of the help offered by SparkPeople website. The community here is very supportive and encouraging.

I have a wonderful family--my parents and all of my brothers, my husband, children, grandchildren. I want to keep healthy and be around for a long time. I'm glad I've added a little spark to my life!

Hello - I was thinking about you today and wondered how you are doing? I'm going to try to hit Indy Girls Rally in August, any chance you'll be there? Hope all is well; take care.
