Fitness Minutes: 1,943

My Goals:
My goals right now (3/23/08) to lose weight and gain energy, 1) stop eating in front of the TV, 2)move 10 minutes every day, 3) listen to upbeat music daily- my goals stay the same for today 2/23/12

My Program:
K I eat 3 meals a day and 2 metabolic (piece of fruit or a veggie) a day. I am a compulsive over-eater in recovery. My only exercise right now is heavy housework, and walking farther on purpose. I have lots to do here especially now that my husband has moved out. Now I am making my home my own.

Personal Information:
I am from Ohio, a daughter, mother (my most important title) and employee. Fortunate to have most of my family living within 70 miles of my home.
I like to read, watch crime dramas, and play online. I play the guitar and crochet, although I have not taken time for my hobbies for awhile.
I divorced in March 2011 after nearly 19 years of marriage (not a place I thought I'd be but for the best.) Time to begin again, starting today, to be the best ME I can be!

Other Information:
Graduated from University of Phoenix June 14 2010! Getting my life in order starting with my home, then who knows what I can accomplish?

Friends are like shoes
You can never have too many
yet friends are like watches
One can be plenty

Friends are like the Army
To serve and to protect
But they are also like the Navy
To whom we all respect

Friends are like big dogs
Loyal, fun, and true
And friends are like padded bras
They're very supportive of you

Friends are like chocolate bars
Good for the healing and sweet
Friends are like Halloween candy
A rare and special treat

Friends are like binoculars
To help keep your goals in sight
Friends are also like candles
When it's dark they give you light

Friends are like erasers
They're there for your mistakes
Friends are like cereal
They're more then good their great!

Hi Valerie,
You have to learn a very spiritual word. "NO"
You don't have to do everything. I use to be that way and learned that it's okay to say "No".
You have to be able to take care of yourself and your family.
that's first. You can volunteer for one thing but not everything.
You do this to yourself. Don't. Be your best friend. emoticon
love,
mama
