This is me, doing what I love best: singing. Especially when it's with one of my kiddos.

A Work in Progress

I'm a stay-at-home, homeschooling mama who's trying to change one thing at a time in my diet and lifestyle...for the better, of course.

I'm also a freelance copy editor, so not only do I love to read, but I love to blog. You can find me at my reading/editing blog, Easy Reader, at http://ilovetoreadyourbooks.blogspot.com.

I also have a more personal blog, Life as Only I Know It, at lyndadietz4@wordpress.com, where I discuss whatever is on my mind.

I fell off the Spark wagon a bit last year and gained a portion of the weight I'd lost, but am slowly and surely getting back on track. The support from the SparkPeople community is incredible and I'm happy to reconnect with my online friends!

Fitness Minutes: 14,117

My Goals:
I need to lose weight. However, I want to do this reasonably by making diet & lifestyle changes so it's not only "do-able" but "keep-able." Through all this, I'm hoping I can teach my children better habits that will allow them to live healthier, also.

My Program:
So far, I'm making small changes. Logging in my nutrition has made me VERY aware of how unbalanced my eating was. The exercise habit is a bit slower in becoming regular, but every bit helps.

Update 7/2012: I've discovered I really like riding my bike!

Update 12/2012: Finding that I actually want to fit in exercise, rather than feeling obligated and dreading it.

Update 1/19/14: Back on the program after falling away during the summer of 2013 and gaining about 10 pounds back.

Personal Information:
Living in the uppermost tip of the "chimney" in PA with a hubby who treats me like a queen, three terrific kids who are not as young as I keep thinking they are, a bunch of dogs & cats who think we're their servants, and chickens...who really don't think much at all.

My fortune cookie the other day: "Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently."

Other Information:
"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." Hebrews 12:11

Thanks for stopping by my blog on 'cardio'--hope you're having a terrific day! Thanks especially for the links--I will sit down tonight and go thru them. The abs site sounds like something I really need to do! emoticon

I thought I was doing a good job reading those ingredients too. The more I read on what those things actually are, the more I want to cook from scratch. I'll have to read the labels on the things I have in my house again. I hope you enjoyed my blog, I'll be looking into more ingredients for a while to see what else is trying to kill us slowly.

Last night's bike ride was cold & wet, but everyone that showed up braved the weather, so I didn't want to be the only wimp (peer pressure isn't just for teens). The forecast did not include rain, so I wasn't dressed for it. I warmed up after the first hill climb, but by the end of the ride (16 miles), my toes were going numb. I need to ride with the club more often--it pushes me out of my comfort zone. We rode an average speed of 13.5 mph. over rolling hills. I'm a CC rider (12-14 mph), but would like to move up to the B riders (14-16) by the end of the summer. emoticon
