Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi! I'm April. I am a busy mom of 7; the oldest is in her second year of teaching, next two in college, one in highschool, two homeschoolers in 4th and 6th grade, and the youngest was born in Sept. 2010. I want to be happy in my skin again. I had lost 30 pounds with SP 1 1/2 years ago. Sadly, I let it come back. It's gotta go!!! My plan is to track what I eat, make healthy choices, and bump up my fitness.
5% Fall Challenge Exercise Plan:
-15 minutes MOVING EVERY DAY--gardening, farm chores, or strength training (which are what gardening and carrying buckets of water or feed bags around amounts to!)
-Bike 2 times a week with my kids, aiming for 10 miles or more each time
-Run or hike 2 times a week, starting at 1 mile and working up to 5 by end of challenge
-basically the Spark Diet
-track everything I eat on SP or with the SP app.
-stay within my calorie and fat ranges. Ramp up my fiber and protein intake. Cut out all soda.
-focus on whole grains, fresh fruits/veggies
-DRINK MY WATER
Ready, set, GO!

I live in SE MN on a small farm. My dh and I have 7 kids who keep us hopping. Our kids are the best!!! I love to garden and play piano. Last summer my family built a new raised bed garden, toning it down from my 1/2 acre. The new garden was awesome and do-able! We also raise our own beef, turkeys, and chickens. I love living in the country!!!
I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
Do not worry about anything. But in all things, with prayer and supplication, make your requests known to God.
Pray, hope, and don't worry.
