My Goals:
Taken from my Spring into Spring 12-Week Challenge post from the Vegetarian/Vegan Team board:

1. I will drink at least eight glasses of water per day.

2. I will track my food each day and will maintain a calorie intake at the lower end of my calorie range a minumum of five days per week, and will stay below the high end of my range seven days per week.

3. I will exercise daily, walking when weather permits. I will also use my Wii Fit Plus and workout DVDs on a daily basis; because I'm currently doing my own exercise challenge - using a different exercise DVD each day and then blogging about it here on SP - this is not an unreasonable goal. Piggybacking on this, I will look for opportunities to increase my activity level each day by: parking further away from entrances; walking around the inside perimeter of my building when I get up to use the restroom; and so on.

4. I will take time with my appearance each day, as this boosts my confidence and helps

My Program:
No program, just healthy, reasonable eating. SparkPeople's Nutrition Tracker makes that incredibly easy!

Personal Information:
My name is Shannon. I live in Ohio with my daughter, Lizzie, my dog, Bear, and my cat, CJ. I'm a knitter, gardener, and librarian. I love to cook and bake and try out new recipes, and wish there were maybe 48 more hours in each day so I could do all that I want.

Hi! Just wanted to let you know I've really enjoyed your fitness DVD reviews. I'm a librarian too and I've used your reviews to make some library purchases. Keep up the great work!

Hi! Chanak: Thanks for adding me as your friend. :) I never thought that I want to be a hottie at an age over 40. In my mind, I'd like to look like I am still 28 forever. Losing weight would definitely help us look younger. Cheers!!! Hope you have many good nights sleep ahead. emoticon

Thanks for adding me as a friend! I was just reading through your rewards "system" and you have really great ideas! I will have to incorporate something like this into my program to keep me motivated.

You are so very welcome and I have more where that came from if you ever need them. I am a huge fan of affirmations and try to have one in my repertoire everyday to repeat throughout the day. Thank you for the wishes on parenting. We just got a 17-year old boy today so now I have two babies to nurture! As much as you can nurture a 17-year old boy anyhow.

So what is this veg challenge you are doing? Are they ongoing?
