Everyday small choices lead to everyday small victories!

At 48.5, I'm determined to get my health back. I've struggled with injuries and physical limitations, but seeing age 50 on the not-so-distant horizon only shores up my resolve!

I have 2 grown kids (yep, I'm an empty nester) and a perfect grandson who was born 12/27/2013! I'm a bridge inspector and office administrator. I'm a cradle Catholic and a knitter. I have been in a relationship with my very significant other for a dozen years.

Member Since: 7/8/2010

SparkPoints: 28,507

Fitness Minutes: 21,283

My Goals:
Look better in a swimsuit for 2016 vacation to Panama

Improve upper body strength

Slim down, especially in belly, hips and thighs


My Program:
I'm eating healthier, including snacks. I'm drinking MUCH more water every day, all day long.

My other big change is to GET MOVING!!

My program is more life changes than short-term goal oriented.

Personal Information:
I'm from a very small Texas town. I've lived in the big city - and I love this way of life. It has its disadvantages, but they are FAR outweighed by its advantages.

I have a daughter in college, studying biology (forensic medicine), and a son who's a musician in Lubbock, Tx.

Other Information:
I'm a voracious reader. I always have one book in progress on my Kindle or in paper form, AND one in progress in audio form. I listen to books as I drive and as I get ready for work in the morning.
I'm a somewhat new knitter. I like to make scarves because they're mindless and satisfying, but I rarely wear them myself.

“In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra.
In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

Thanks so much for your support on my blog! I think you're right, with the state of mind I'm in it's best to avoid triggers for the near future! I don't have a teammate, because so far I haven't needed one! This is the first time since I moved here that I've had trouble moderating myself...and it's sooo disappointing!

I like your idea of a reward system, so I'm going to set rewards for myself - I get a glass of wine when I hit specific weight loss milestones. It should be great incentive to lose the weight...and help me lose weight faster at the same time!

I hope everything is going well for you too! Now that Monday is behind us, have a great rest of the week!
