It's time to get serious.

I've been sort of half-hearted trying to lose weight. Now it's time to really buckle down. I've stayed pretty much steady, but I'd like to see some of it go away. Which means I'll have to start moving more than what I do at work. There's so many times I can fit a few minutes of exercise in but I don't. Time to get off my lazy butt.

Member Since: 5/12/2009

SparkPoints: 55,396

Fitness Minutes: 11,135

My Goals:
1. Lose at least one inch off my waist, abdomen and hips by January 31

2. Lose 5 pounds by the end of January

3. Be more attentive to my eating habits, both in portion control and what I eat.

My Program:
1. I'm trying to watch what I eat better, so I can indulge in what I love (banana splits!) once in a while without feeling guilty.
2. I'm trying to be more active. Being in school means a lot of computer work, so I have to make an effort to move. My 2 year old granddaughter is good at helping me do that!
3. Drink more water and less diet pepsi.
4. Remember I have a wedding coming up next year and I want to fit in my dress.


Personal Information:
I live in Minnesota, have three living children, two lovely stepdaughters, four sons in law, and six grandchildren. I'm a registered nurse have my master's degree in nursing education. I teach in a community college nursing program. I love to knit (and crochet), read, listen to music, watch movies and spend time with my husband who is retired.

Other Information:
I have been a fan of Dick Francis's mysteries for years. In his book Straight, there is a quote that I try to emulate: May I deal with honour, may I act with courage, may I achieve humility. I think it's a great way to try to live.

Becky,
~~A Quote to LIVE By~~
People are often unreasonable and self centered
FORGIVE them anyway
If you are kind, people may accuse you of having an ulterior motives
Be KIND anyway
If you are honest, people may cheat you
Be HONEST anyway
If you find happiness, people may be jealous
Be HAPPY anyway
The good you do today may be forgotten anyway
Be GOOD anyway
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough
Give your BEST anyway
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God
It was never between you and them anyway.
Mother Theresa

This weekend, FORGIVE someone, be KIND-open a door for someone, be HONEST - if given too much money back, return the correct amount, be HAPPY - smile and laugh with a friend, or loved one, be GOOD - staying positive in a negative situation, do your BEST - be helpful to someone who needs help.
Have a forgiving, kind, honest, happy, good, and the best Weekend ever!!!

Barb
