DAILY AFFIRMATION: "I love to move my body! I feel fat burning off of me like the heat of a supernova! I eat the right amount of calories, and I am healthy and happy!"


I'm looking forward to learning to eat healthfully, finding a way to exercise that I don't hate and that won't hurt me (arthritis), and being accountable with people who understand what I'm going through. ***Update 27 Nov 2012: I no longer suffer from the pain of arthritis!!!!

Member Since: 7/2/2012

SparkPoints: 24,135

Fitness Minutes: 12,077

My Goals:
My goals are to strengthen and tone my body, inside and out.

My next goal is to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol so I can stop taking those medications. Also to use my nutrition to raise my potassium so I can stop taking that medication too!

Finally, it is my goal to manage my reaction to certain known stressors in my life by addressing sleep issues, food, and fitness.

My Program:
I track my food and fitness daily and have made major changes to what and how I eat.

I have connected with others on Spark Teams, including the Stress Busters!

I journal regularly, keep a sleep journal, and have even attempted a blog or two.

I remind myself how much I have to be grateful for and I give encouragement and support to those in my circle of influence.

Personal Information:
Since I was young, I have always been positive and happy and goal-oriented. I find myself, now, in unfamiliar territory dealing with the effects of a newly employed (!!! YAYAYAYAY!) but formerly underemployed husband (for the last three years). At the same time, dealing with my oldest, who should be a college junior but has made some really poor decisions, while my youngest is starting high school. I am grateful they are both healthy and happy, and I am working to allow them to develop independently and learn from their mistakes. (The youngest is incredibly conscientious ... I feel confident in his decision making.)

I also have a profession that I LOVE!! But my administration is awful and terrorizing. I am learning to manage the stress of my work environment.

I manage to keep it all together externally, but my blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight have sky rocketed in only the last two years...no surprise why!

Other Information:
I'm a Jane Austen junkie!

I have also watched the "West Wing" series from beginning to end about 20 times!

I'm a college professor and LOVE my work!

I love people!

Hello, SparkFriend,
Gryffindor emoticon Hufflepuff emoticon Ravenclaw emoticon Slytherin emoticon
I realize you have teams that work and teams that don't. Sometimes trying out a new team finds a fit.

Today, I am going through my SparkFriend's list, on my SparkPage and sending out an invitation. Please come check out our HOGWARTS Winter*Term Owl*Mail team (located as my 1st team under my teams). It is set up for a waiting list to the upcoming winter*term. We have a 12 wk challenge (multiple choices) designed for your own personal 'fit' and, Challengers of HOGWARTS winter*term 2, is coming up, on December 1st. It is a private team, so you need to join the owl*mail team if you want to be Sorted.

I created a blog about it, today, so please stop in and read it. If you're looking for a really refreshing new way to focus on your goals and form new friendships plus join in the celebrations of the seasons in a *fun* virtual online wizarding world ... please come.

Join me for a whole new adventure.
Annie
