Fitness Minutes: 6,687

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.

    Thank you Sweetie for stopping by and leaving such an encouraging message.

    There are so many times we allow other people to dominate our lives, so somewhere along the way we have to stand up for ourselves, and I feel or weight loss or healthier live style should at least be ours.

    Again thank you and have a great day emoticon
