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: 57,761

Fitness Minutes: 11,420

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.

When an "all-nighter" means
not getting up to pee... emoticon
When all the names in my black book
have M.D. after them... emoticon emoticon
When "getting lucky" means
finding my car in the parking lot... emoticon emoticon
When the candles
Cost more than the cake... emoticon emoticon emoticon
I promise you
We'll still be best friends!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

~~Take the Power ~~

This life is yours.
Take the power to choose
what you want to do and do it well.
Take the power to love
what you want in life and
Love it honestly.
Take the power to walk in the forest
and be a part of nature.
Take the power to control your own life
No one else can do it for you
Take the power to make your life happy.
~~Susan Polis Schutz ~~

Take this Tuesday ...
Make it a great one, and make it your own!!
