Fitness Minutes: 18,274

My Goals:
To get to know God in a more intimate way.
To get down to a "normal" BMI.
To "find" myself as I transition from full time mom to an empty nester.
To recapture my dreams and live my life to the fullest.
To be able to run a 5K again.

My Program:
When I started my healthy lifestyle journey my weight was 286 pounds, and I was completely sedentary. Much of the food I was consuming was fast food or packaged prepared foods, and other quick and easy choices. The first thing I did was to cut out most of my fast food consumption. Next I added in drinking more water. Finally I added in exercise to the equation (thanks to Spark Guy and his "you can do 10 minutes" concept) Now I am down almost 40 pounds, and a few sizes. I love the energy I have, and the ability to do so many more things!

1. I am going to track my food. "If I bite it, I write it" is my new motto...
2. I am going to measure my food.
3. I am going to keep on eating healthy foods, but control my portion sizes.
4. I am going to exercise at least 10 minutes a day, every day. And I am only going to count it as meeting my goal if it is something that I am doing just to exercise.

Personal Information:

I am going to live my life to it's fullest extent, I am going to get off the sidelines and start playing again.

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.
-Tom Venuto

Oh 45 minutes left and I'm heading home. I think that would be great to walk the beach. We don't think the ice will be off the lakes for the opening of fishing season again this year. It was still froze over last year also. So much for Globel Warming. Opener is May 10th
That will mean the gardens will be late also. Grrrr Being I've worked so much it's all for the best. It will give me a chance to get things started indoors. I placed an order for some fruit bushes tonight and will look for more tomorrow. Then I need to stop until we can get the field plowed up and fence in the orchard. I hate to get too a head of myself.
After I wake up I am going to try and do a one minute walk and 4 minute run for the full 5K. I wished I could get out on the road but the high for the day is only going to be 38 and windy. NOT for this girl. I have to wait until it's atleast 42 degree's/sunny and no wind. HaHaHa
Your walking path sounds nice. Luckily our road is paved and only the locals use it. Being we live far from town there usually isn't too much traffic.
I'm out of fresh idea's for dinner tonight. I seen hubby had a chicken thawing out yesterday. Maybe he will put it on the grill. Last night I took out some beets that I had canned last year. They sure are tastey!
Do you get much time to can?
I better start getting ready to head out. Have fun with the Church Band.
