I've been struggling to create a vision collage. For now, I'm focusing on strength and active living

Channeling sunshine and light on this journey

Another long slow slide, another restart. Let the games begin!

My current motivator is a trip to Europe in April - I'd like as much space for my body in that airplane seat as possible and as much strength in my legs for all the sight seeing we will be doing!

My commitments to myself:
- Exercise 6 days/week - start with 20 min/day and ramp up to 45 min/day
- Eat 1600-1800 quality calories/day
- Log my food and activity every day

SparkPoints: 16,420

Fitness Minutes: 10,770

My Goals:
To start a new healthy routine that works with my new job - making sure to incorporate me time into my day.

To reach 150 pounds (105 pounds lost).


My Program:
I follow an eating plan inspired by the Biggest Loser 30 Day Jump Start. Low fat, lots of fruit and veggies, whole grains, lean proteins - 3 meals + 2 snacks per day. I'm letting SparkPeople figure out my calorie range - and exercising my butt off so that it stays high enough that I don't feel deprived!

Exercise and I still need to re-connect.

Other Information:
Atlantic Time Zone (ADT)

Words to live by:

Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. ~Earl Nightingale

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

If I have to, I can do anything. - Helen Reddy

A long time ago , a mother prepared for Christmas Eve. She cleaned and scrubbed her home, chasing the spiders from the living room with her broom. The spiders fled to the attic and listened to the excitement below as the Christmas tree was put up and decorated. When all was quiet again, the little spiders crept back downstairs to see the beautiful tree. They were filled with happiness as they crawled along every branch, admiring the glittering beauty of each ornament. But alas, by the time they had finished climbing through the tree, it was completely draped with their dusty, gray cobwebs.

When the Christ child came, He smiled as He looked upon the happy little spiders, however, He knew the mother would be heartbroken when she saw the shrouded tree. So He reached out and touched the webs and, blessing them, turned them into silver and gold. Now the Christmas tree sparkled and shimmered and was even more beautiful than before. Thus the custom to have tinsel of silver and gold and a spider ornament among the other decorations on the Christmas tree was born.
