BE THE CHANGE ~

I'm on my way to a new way of life. Building consistency. Planning each day and being prepared (so important!). Nurturing my own health, a stronger & slimmer body, and my self esteem!

I'm excited to have passed my 18 month Sparkversary - and to realize that for the first time in memory, I have broken the cycle of losing a few pounds and then slowly gaining them back, and then doing that all over again. This past year, I have gradually lost a total of 8 pounds. I'm up a couple ...

I'm excited to have passed my 18 month Sparkversary - and to realize that for the first time in memory, I have broken the cycle of losing a few pounds and then slowly gaining them back, and then doing that all over again. This past year, I have gradually lost a total of 8 pounds. I'm up a couple lbs over the holidays, but the accountability I have here has allowed me to begin working on reversing that trend before it gets away from me! I LOVE SPARK PEOPLE and all my dear friends from around the world!

Member Since: 1/18/2010

SparkPoints: 23,124

Fitness Minutes: 25,355

My Goals:
I would like to apply the same "day at a time" principals to my eating and fitness that have served me in other areas of my life! No more splurging today because the diet starts tomorrow! I am committed to planning my food intake and staying within my calorie count, and to increasing my exercise!

My Program:
I am planning my food for the day ahead of time and printing it up so I won't "forget." I am keeping my sugar intake as minimal as I can. I walk 2.2 mi a day and try to do the Real Age 20 min. workout at last 2-3 times a week. Cycling more on our tandem road bike as now that the days are longer! I am reading The Spark and taking this one day at a time!

Personal Information:
I am 57 years old, live in northern CA, and work as an interior designer. I am back in college, in a Physical Therapist Asst. program, and I'm excited about my new career! In the meantime, life is BUSY. I have a partner I love, and who is very fit - he's a great influence & always positive about good habits. Al's a cyclist, and we have a tandem bike that we have ridden over 10,000 mi. since 2005. I have a daughter who lives a half hour away, with 2 grandsons - 3 & 3 months - who I totally adore & babysit one day a week.

Other Information:
I'm a vegetarian (except for salmon a couple times a month) and would love to connect with others for recipe tips.

Working to schedule exercise into my jam-packed days. My current goals are:
Walking at least 30 min. a day.
Cycling 2-3x/week (15-20 mi. min.)
Real Age workout 3x/wk

You just "popped" into my head today, it was so fun to see the newer pics of your beautiful grandchildren. I did know about your books on Amazon and that you are writing again, I think that it so GREAT! WW is a really good program, I did WW many, many years ago.

I try to eat clean Cindy but honestly I struggle with sugar EVERY day...GRRR. I would connect with you on FB but I don't have a FB account.

Hopefully we can keep in touch when you pop onto SP. Glad to hear you are doing well Cindy. You are missed on SP!

Blessings to you my friend,
Judy

Hi Cindy, I am just stopping by my different spark buddy pages to say hi to those I haven't heard from in awhile. I hope all is well with you.
