I'm Not Dieting...I'm Changing My Life

Hi! My name is Amy (you probably guessed that) and I've been a member of SparkPeople for a long time. I lose and gain, start and stop, come and go.

Well, not this year! This year I am going to take charge of my life. I am going to organize and plan so that I will succeed at changing my life.

My Program:
I'm not on a diet! I'm changing my lifestyle!

I'm starting by planning and scheduling for meals, workouts, events so I am managing my time instead of my time managing me.

I will get to bed at a decent hour aiming for 6 to 7 hours of sleep.

I will nurture my spirit, soul, and body every day.

Spirit: I will spend time with God, my Father. I will read His Word. I will pray and consult with him in all things. I will praise and worship him in song and action.

Soul: I will spend time doing things I enjoy by myself and with my family and friends. I will laugh and dance. I will sing and play my guitar. I will look for ways to help and bless others.

Body:
I will drink at least 8 glasses of water every day.
Cardio 6 days a week
Strength 3 days a week
Yoga 3 days a week
I will plan, cook, and eat nutritious meals. Limit eating out to 3 times a week.

I will read success stories and other motivating articles.


Personal Information:
I live in Texas.� I am married to the most wonderful man and have two awesome sons (26 & 17) and a beautiful daughter(8 yrs).� My family is my main support and motivator. I thank God for them every day.

Other Information:



Elliptical: 18" = 3520

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below
