Barbara - Maintenance Mode

As you can probably tell from the title of my page, I am in maintenance. I've been in maintenance since October, 2010. This is my second time at maintenance and I learned that I still need to watch what I eat and exercise consistently if I want to stay at the weight and health level I am currently.

As far as eating is concerned, there are places that I can improve. I drink way too much Diet Pepsi. I like the energy drink NOS and I probably eat way more salt and fat than I ...
As you can probably tell from the title of my page, I am in maintenance. I've been in maintenance since October, 2010. This is my second time at maintenance and I learned that I still need to watch what I eat and exercise consistently if I want to stay at the weight and health level I am currently.

As far as eating is concerned, there are places that I can improve. I drink way too much Diet Pepsi. I like the energy drink NOS and I probably eat way more salt and fat than I should. Those are areas to work on in the coming year.

For 2013, my fitness goals are similar to 2010 and 2011 and 2012, since I didn't reach them! I want to do at least one unassisted pull up. I would like to continue my freshly restarted lifting program so that my arms have definition. Ultimate goal is to not have "flapping" underarms, but not sure if that is a possibility without surgery. And I'm not having surgery!

For eating, I will work on decreasing my dependency on Diet Pepsi and energy drinks. I have done better with both, but they are still part of my diet. I will continue my quest in making the food choices about my health and well being, not just my weight. I would like to eat even fewer processed foods than I do now.

Above all, I want to continue to be a good example for my kids. My son actually told me the other day that it's easy for me to eat healthy because I don't like to eat. LOL! I explained to him that I LOVE to eat, but I have learned to eat smaller portions and avoid some foods. I don't think he believed me, but we're working on it.

Stop by and say hi if you get the time. And good luck on your journey.

It's in Horseshoe Bend and it's $90 unless you have a party of 4 or more, then it's $85.

I just sent you an e-mail. Have to cancel for Saturday because my Dad is coming for a visit. He'll be here on Saturday. I wasn't expecting him until the end of the month. Surprise! emoticon

You DEFINITELY need to go zip line. Maybe we should do that together too. I told Kyle I wanted him to go. Think your hubby would do it? We couldn't all three go at the same time but the one pic is with my friend Denyce. Our other friend took the pic. I cannot even begin to tell you how fun that was. I can't wait to go again. I even looked and found a zip line tour near Santa Cruz. Trying to talk my sister into going next summer when I'm down there visiting.

Hey Barb,

How are you? I am still alive and well. I finally got a tablet. Having a hard time getting used to it.
Peter and I are getting married on September 6. He proposed on June 20, quite by accident. I gave him a chance to back out, but he was more than willing to go through with it. It will be a small wedding.
We have been doing the Shred diet. After the first 6 week cycle I have lost eleven and a quarter pounds.
More later.

As you requested, I uploaded a couple picks from our zip line adventure. It was SO MUCH FUN! I can't wait to do it again.
