Just for me

Back again...Landed a job last fall after being un/under/self-employed for 7 years. Was a bit difficult to get back into a working routine and learning the job (no training - just jump in). Felt more like a firefighter the first 4 months! Got it pretty well under control now!

I'm at that age where nothing short of starving myself works. You've heard it all before...working out, walking/running/low carb/low calories blah, blah, blah. I love eating low carb and will continue ...

I'm at that age where nothing short of starving myself works. You've heard it all before...working out, walking/running/low carb/low calories blah, blah, blah. I love eating low carb and will continue regardless of my weight, it helps to keeps my blood glucose in check and my other labs have been perfect.

I've started seeing a Naturopathic doctor. We'll be working on hormone balance with bioidenticals first, then move on to HCG. I've been very impressed with their level of current knowledge and the detailed care thus far. Sure beats a usual MD! They actually know who I'm talking about when I mention Dr. Michael Eades, Dr. Robert Lustwig, Tom Naughton, Jimmy Moore, Dr. William Davis, et al.

Fitness Minutes: 30,228

My Goals:
My main goal is to make it through this menopause crap-o-la and come out as fit, if not more-so than I was going into it. One thing's for certain - this is NOT the pause that refreshes!!

Attaining "NORMAL" blood sugars rates right up there with maintaining fitness. FBG closer to 100 would be wonderful!

I'm trying to avoid the big D. Diabetes...runs in the family.



My Program:
Keeping a food journal is a must for me. This pausal stuff is hard on the memory...I forget to eat, I forget what I ate. Heck, I sometimes forget to turn the car off when I park it!!! Journal it then let it go -- I've got other things to try and remember (like turning off the car!)

Taking a brisk 60 minute walk every day. I find the fitness and step tracker very motivational!!!

For 2010, I've added more strength training and Yoga and I plan to get back out on the Trikke this year (it's a great workout!).

I've decided to stick with "lower-carbing" it (less than 20 grams per meal, 10 per snack) while still keeping my fiber up and calories between 1200 and 1600 calories per day. Bread, rice, spuds, pasta, crackers are pretty much out except for very special occassions. Just causes too many cravings!

Oh yeah, and water - I can't forget the water. Drinking lots and lots of water!

Personal Information:
I live in SE Wisconsin, have for my entire life with the exception of a 10 month walk-about in the sunny state of AZ. That's when I learned ---"No matter where you go, there you are."

Thanks for your comment on me crossing 6,000 fitness minutes! I was surprised myself. I normally don't keep track of it, but I am glad that spark does it for me!

Have a great weekend! emoticon

One of our closest friends was killed in a tornado several years ago. It's very sobering.

Our city park was wiped out a few years ago along with a big chunk of the town.
