My Program:
log, log, log !- it is the only way that I can analyze what is working and what is not!

BE REALISTIC
I can not eat 2000 calories each day and expect to lose weight. Some fellow SP member said "you can have 1 of 2 outlooks each day when you awake. 1) get out of bed and realize you made great choices the day before and today you will do the same; or 2) get up realizing that you already regret how you messed up the other day. IT IS TIME TO THINK AND ACT DIFFERENTLY to make change happen!

move, move, move!
a HUGE goal for me was too finally be in a summer volleyball league-DOING IT!!

walking 2mi 3x/wk

gardening or really its weeding...4hrs/wk

zumba 1x/wk

volleyball-1x/wk during season

water aerobics 1-2x/wk when classes resume



Personal Information:
I love, love, love:
music!
my kitties!
water views/recreation!
trying new recipes!
coffee!
spice blending!
oil painting!
being there for a friend!
and having some time to just zone (just got rid of tv)!

And if anyone works with GIS, market research, or specialty foods (e.g. coffee, spice, oil/vinegar) - let's discuss that too!
