Hi. My name's Beth. I'm looking for support to maintain my healthy lifestyle.
I have a physical disability (Cerebral Palsy) and also have been struggling with clinical depression since I was 16, but I try not to let my challenges get in the way of living a normal life. I am also the proud "Mama" of a Service Dog named Somerset ("Somer" for short). Her picture is in the gallery.
I hope to find support here, so feel free to add me as a Spark Friend and I will do what I can to support you, too.
Looking forward to getting to know you.
My Goals:
1. Stay positive even if I don't see results at the scale.
2. Keep myself accountable by tracking fitness on SparkPeople
3. Reward myself when I achieve my fitness goals. Favorite Rewards: DVDs, CDs, "ME" TIME!!!!!!
4. Allow for some flexibility within my food plan so I do not feel deprived.
Plan for Winter 2017
Fitness: 1,000 Fitness minutes per month
(I track my fitness using a Fitbit Flex)
Nutrition: Track food daily.
(I track my food on Weight Watchers e-tools & the Spark People app).
Team: Connect with my buddies by posting on boards or fellow members' pages at least once a week.

    What is a Workout?
    By George Allen, former Washington Redskins Coach

    A workout is 25 percent perspiration and 75 percent determination. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts self-discipline. Doing it is easy once you get started.

    A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind, and toughens the spirit. When you work out regularly, your problems diminish and your confidence grows.

    A workout is a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is the badge of a winner - the mark of an organized, goal-oriented person who has taken charge of his, or her, destiny.

    A workout is a wise use of time and an investment in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary.

    A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to opportunity and success. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers that can release it.

    A workout is a form of rebirth. When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF.
