On the road to good health

The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step!

Like countless others, I have struggled with my weight for my entire life. I am at it again...

SparkPoints: 18,396

Fitness Minutes: 7,501

My Goals:
My goal is to eat to live. Healthy living and healthy eating habits are my main concern after years and years of doing the opposite. In practical terms, my goals are:
1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day
2. Maintain weight loss of 1 to 2 lbs/week
3. Eat 5 times/per day focusing on low carb and high fiber choices
4. Get strength training in 3 times/week, get about 30 minutes of cardio EVERYDAY

I hope to run a 5K someday. Right now it is a distant dream.


My Program:
My program is all about long term, sustainable healthy eating based on good, healthful habits. I am arming myself with knowledge and information. I am tracking everything I eat and tracking my fitness using Sparkpeople recommendations.

Personal Information:
I live in Southwestern Connecticut with my wonderful husband and our 2 sons. I work for a large consumer products company and I love what I do.

Other Information:
I live my life by a very simple motto... if God brings you to it, He will bring your through it. You may not be able to change the wind but you can always adjust your sails. I try to make the best out of any situation. My joy and energy comes from my family, from my friends, and my work. I enjoy New York Yankees baseball, cheering hard for my children at their baseball games. I enjoy entertaining, reading and Sparkpeople. I love the support I get from my Spark Friends.

“The one thing all famous authors, world class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.” Yet still, they began their journeys, Mike Dooley

“In the beginning, the price of giving great love is risking that it won't be returned. Until you understand, of course, that great love is always returned. With interest.” - Mike Dooley

“I do believe that the single most important thing I could ever share with you with regard to maximizing the health, harmony, and happiness in your life can be summed up in just two words: 'Love Yourself'” - Mike Dooley

Have a great weekend

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
-Tom Venuto

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” ~ World Health Organization

It seems like many of us face a continual battle to stay positive when little progress is apparent. We just have to keep in mind that we our efforts will result in a healthier life. We need to focus on how we are feeling and the energy we have to accomplish daily life tasks. I’m working hard to concentrate on my health rather than just on the number on the scale; to concentrate on non-scale victories to help me stay positive every day.

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."
-Rae Smith

Happy Earth Day! Monday, April 22nd is Earth Day a day to be in wonder of this wonderful world we live in. There's so many things that you can do to honor Earth Day this month. Take some time to think about how you recycle or reuse things around your home. Maybe pick up a new habit clean habit to honor Earth Day. *~ Paula *~
