The Me I Want to Be

Too often I think how different it would be if I knew then what I know now... Well TODAY is the THEN that tomorrow I'll be wishing I did differently. So it's time I starting DOING things differently - NOW. Maybe that's confusing to read but it's crystal clear to me.
Starting now, the lessons I've learned and continue to learn are going to be the driver for me to find contentment - in who I already am and in my ability to be something different if I want to be. If I'm unhappy with ...

Starting now, the lessons I've learned and continue to learn are going to be the driver for me to find contentment - in who I already am and in my ability to be something different if I want to be. If I'm unhappy with something I'll work to change it. I won't waste one more ounce of energy on regret. The future truly is what I chose to make it.

My Goals:
MY 2015 SPRING 5% CHALLENGE GOALS
***Exercise Plan***
* Get at least 10 mins of exercise in EVERY DAY.
* 20-30 min walk or bike ride outside 3 days a week.
* 10 mins of floor stretching any night I watch TV
***Nutrition***
* Follow the Spark guidelines for calories, carbs, fat and protein
* Track every bite, every day
* Get 8 glasses of water in daily



Refreshing my oveall goals...

First let's go with that LONG TERM GOAL. I think I will be happy with 136 pounds so let's call that my goal. But I'm going to include a STRETCH GOAL of 132 which puts me in the WW range for my height.

Now for some shorter term goals. I'd like to lose an average of 1 pound a week from now moving forward.

I'm not going to set myself any timelines as I want to just focus on One Day At A Time.

I also am striving for increasingly better health!

My Program:
Here is my plan.
I am not following any specific diet. I am tracking my food in SparkPeople and following the guidelnes provided there for calories, fat, carbs and protein. I am trying to focus on low carb foods.
However I am not going to go at this as fanatical as I have sometimes in the past.
I am going to be realistic and try to incorporate small changes slowly and permanently.
I am going to follow my husband's lead and take things One Day At A Time only.
I will be kind and supportive to myself.

Personal Information:
I'm Di.
Happily married, Mother of two adult children.
55 years old and not minding that.
Would love to lose this extra weight for good.
Would love to take a flight of stairs without panting halfway to the top.
Would love to get my blood pressure in check without meds.
Would love to become fit, really fit.

Other Information:
Love to read.
Love to write.
Often wish we had no TV.
Like any chance to be creative - planning a party, making gifts, baking, decorating the house.
