Plan. Prepare. Follow Through.

These are the words I need to live by in order to reach my goals.

It has been a dream of mine for a long time to be able to run. I signed up for my first 5K in April 2014. I will not be running, but I WILL be walking and I'll be damned if I'm gonna let my older sister leave me in the dust!

My Program:
The plan as of 1/1/14:

Weigh in daily (if I am home I am only weighing on one scale as they are all calibrated differently)

Track nutrition ("pre-track" for planning purposes when possible)

Minimum of 5 servings daily of fruits/vegetables, 70 grams protein, 8 cups water

Calories 1200 - 1800 six days a week, with the option of going as high as 2300 one day a week

Sunshine and fresh air to stave off winter depression! I will take a quick walk outside at lunchtime at my work unless it is BITTERLY cold or raining/snowing

Continue to see my doctor every 2 months for weigh in


Most importantly: ERADICATE BINGING!


Other Information:
I am 56 years old and have been struggling with my weight ALL my life. Sadly, when I was younger I thought I was fat when really, I was healthy. Had I not had such a skewed body image then, I do not believe I would have become so obsessed with weight and food and ended up where I am today. In the 70s as a teenager, I hated my GINORMOUS hips. They were 37 inches and I was 5 feet 7 inches tall. Hah! Youth is so wasted on the young.

"Vegetarian Wannabe" - sometimes I give in to bacon (sigh) and I do eat fish

Loves animals - especially rabbits

Beatles fan and all classic rock and roll

Wanted desperately to go to Woodstock, but was only 12 years old at the time

loves the colors turquoise and aqua - the color of the Caribbean

you can never have TOO many Christmas lights

loves to dream about flying

Hi! Thanks for the check-in. It's been a tough row-to-hoe lately but I'm hanging in there. Leaving for Italy in 5 weeks and yes starting to get excited!

I'm hoping to be around more often too so maybe you'll see more of me soon. Hope you're doing well!!
