I am a retired school teacher and look forward to marking a few things off my bucket list.
I enjoy cooking and like to make soup. I eat soup just about everyday for lunch.
I like all types of fresh food and don't follow a special diet. I eat whatever I want. I will start logging my food and exercise and believe that moderation is the key to success.
I grew up in the country, and love all things outdoors. I have lots of time to travel, and especially love the outdoors.

My Program:
My Program:
I enjoy hiking hiking on the mountain trails in New Mexico during the summer and so does my 10 year old Bichon Frise. I use my SOLE Elliptical 2 days a week when I am in Texas. I choose two toning videos to do on my workout days. I do all of my exercises at home. I drink LOTS of water. I do my best to say "No Thank You" to sugar and processed foods.
I travel frequently with my husband and we often split a meal!
I enjoy my cocktails and my red wine.
I add them to my log and do my best to burn them off! It does require discipline to have a cocktail that doesn't lead to snacking on chips and dips. On days that I lack discipline, I skip happy hour.

Personal Information:
I live in Texas and have twin 22 year old boys.
I am married and travel frequently. I am a retired teacher and look forward to the new freedoms that retirement brings.
I recently gained about 20 pounds due to a broken leg. I am finally healed and ready to kick those 20 pounds to the curb!

Other Information:
Over the past 2 years, I have gained weight because I retired and didn't put my fitness goals first. I like to eat out and write reviews for Trip Advisor.

Food-for-thought this week:

Diets have a start and a finish, but a lifestyle change will last forever. Imagine yourself where you want to be, and that is where you will go. Being mindful about your eating can help you stay focused on your weight loss plan. As you eat, pay close attention to all your senses. Use your tongue to feel the texture of the food, gauge its temperature, and take a whiff of the aroma. Ask yourself if it is something that is really satisfying your taste buds. Every choice is yours to make!

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing. People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Hi Terri, thank you for the sweet comment on my new profile pic. I am loving my short hair, and not having to worry about coloring it anymore. Very liberating, lol. Thank you for the photo shop goodie. I am laughing right now because for some reason, the photographer guy on the goodie looks like the host of the Gong Show to me!!! (I'm in a weird mood today, lol.)

Hope you are having an awesome week!
Hugs,
Pixie

PS: You have a good memory! The shirt in my profile IS the same shirt I wore when I went out with my sons. I love the color.

emoticon Terri! Think of healthy living as a career. Make goal setting a regular part of your life. Become a permanent participant in sustaining better lifestyle choices. Focus on one goal at a time to become a healthier you. Develop an action plan for each goal and finish what you start. Each positive change will lead you to better results. You CAN and WILL turn your GOALS into the results that you are striving for!


emoticon G = Give each goal 100% of commitment from beginning to completion!
emoticon O = Open your mind to new ways of doing new things!
emoticon A = Add variety to nutrition plan, fitness activities and inner well-being goals!
emoticon L = Live life embracing healthy choices, positive changes and personal growth!
emoticon S = Strive to exceed daily with a combined mind-body-soul balance!

Try this little "trick" this week . . . the “1 Times 10 Trick”

Find 10 opportunities during the day to raise your heart rate for just 1 minute at a time. You can do anything for only 1 minute, right? You’ll burn as many as 300-400 extra calories a day by doing this little trick alone!!! emoticon emoticon

Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this every day, when you check your sparkpage:

Tone up—without leaving the comfort of your bed! Before getting out of bed each morning, spend just a few minutes doing exercises (or stretches). The softer surface of a mattress forces your muscles to work harder, for stability and balance. Try hip raises (bridges), bicycle-abs, the clam, side-twists (while sitting up, maybe add arm circles to that one). Don’t forget stretches, too. A great one would be pulling your knees towards your chest (good for sciatica). We’ll call it---Fitness for Lazy Days! emoticon emoticon emoticon
