"You'd better like yourself, because you're the only person who has to live with you every second of every day for the rest of your life." --I don't know who said that. Maybe I made it up.

Fitness Minutes: 16,104

My Goals:
*Find balance with work, family, and my own physical, mental, and emotional needs.

*Recognize and appreciate the good things in my life.

*Be happy.

My Program:
*Eat REAL food as needed, without obsessing over it.

*Take a walk when the weather's nice.

*Get a good night's sleep every night.

*Realize what a lucky person I am every day. I have a wonderful husband, a loving family, a job I love, enough money to live without worry, and I like myself.

Personal Information:
I live away from home in a commuter apartment during the week, walk (only about 1/2 mile) to work, and work 12 hour days at a desk job. I have little time to cook and have to eat out (meetings) ALL the time. It's a challenge to keep things in check, but now that I feel settled into my job I am ready to take off the 8 pounds that I gained since I started and about 60 more! lol

Other Information:
I set a goal of 120 to see if I can get into my normal BMI range. I don't know if that's possible, but I seem to have a different mindset these days - food isn't controlling me - so we'll see what happens.

I was just on this website with a macros calculator for "most efficient weight loss". I don't know what I think about this, and I am a carb-lover, but the calculations don't seem super insane. I could still eat bread lol.
1441 calories (in my spark range of 1200-1550)
108 g Protein (30%)
69 g Fat (43%)
97 g Carbs (27%)
28 g Fiber
So it differs from spark in that it shifts calories from carbs to fat. I may give this a try. Not sure....

    I used to frequent Barnes and Noble and local used book stores (and don't get me wrong, I am happy to support the book industry) but now I am more likely to use the public library. I try to get to the library at least once a month. I save a lot of money! As a reading specialist I still buy children's books (most from my own pocket, but scour Goodwill on 50% off day so I get great deals. I do buy books at conferences, although I have cut back on that. I always tell my students to go to the library and we have a librarian visit.

    I am SO glad that you will be in DC for Library Legislative Day! You go ahead and tell those power brokers what they need to know, and what they need to hear , OK???

    All the soda flavors I saw were just too weird for me. I'd want to sample them first, before buying them. At least the ones I took a picture of, you wee able to buy a single bottle of, vs. a 6 pack.
