Giving what I can, when the going is ruff !

I am the ML (does this stand for Motivational Leader,, or as I LIKE to say "MOST LOVED" leader !???? LOL Just ask the other leaders,,,, but, ONLY my vote counts,, of course in this case,, perhaps some insanity helps?) for the Spirited Under Dawgs,,, a part of the 5% challenge community. We do what we are able to ,,, in order to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks. I HAVE SUCCEEDED at this a few times ! Though at that point, my weight was quite higher than it is now ! So this IS POSSIBLE !! ...

So this IS POSSIBLE !!

For this SUMMER Challenge, I AM AGAIN (SIGH !) dealing with foot problems. Still in the "having tests" stage, so I can't state if I'll be down for all 8 weeks, or not, I tend to think yes.

So what I will do to lose the weight? The ONLY thing I can. To WATCH my food Intake ! The KEY IS TRACKING !! If you find ur gaining,, or on a plateau,,, RESTART with TRACKING, and EVERYTHING you put into ur mouth.

THIS IS DOABLE even if I don't lose the entire 5%, i WANT SOME !

My Goals:
I live in the GORGEOUS State of Maine ! Our States Motto is: "VACATION LAND" ! If you can dream it (other than HOT weather ! LOL) you CAN DO IT HERE ! All 4 seasons, are FULL OF FUN !!

I had PLANNED on swimming in the ocean quite a bit,, for I live on a harbor, with the beach less than 4 mins from my place, but that's OUT again, due to my feet.

I am OWNED by Missy Izzy !! A mix of Tiger,,,and Lamar ,, cat ! A lamar?? WHAT"s THAT??? its a kitty that has a rougher furr,,,, its a strange fur,,,, they have shorter legs,, almost dwarf like (Its GREAT ! She CAN'T JUMP on a lot of things my other cats have !) and when they are held in a "baby" position in ur arms,, they ALWAYS put their paw on ur face ! ADORABLE OR WHAT???? She's NOT at all demanding as some are,,, she's EXTREMELY LOVING. Sometimes TO MUCH So when I am trying to type ! LOL !

My Program:
To drink 5 to 7 glasses of water daily.

To TRACK DAILY ALL I put into the yap trap !

Exercise,, will vary,, and it can't be as it has been in the past,, until foot heals,, I CAN and WILL do arm exercises with weights,, once the picc line for antibiotics comes out.

Personal Information:
Humor is important to surviving when life gets hard,, harder.

Prayer is always helpful,,,, gets me through a lot of the rough spots.

I am surrounded by both family and friends,,,, hmmm that MARYANN (GI) is counted among them ! WOOHOOOO !! So are MANY others on the teams,,, "TEAMS"??? yes,,, some Dawggies have WANDERED OUT of the Kennel, but we remain friends.

I guess i should warn you that i won't be a Super dawgie this week. Got some sort of bug. Today I had 101 temp. My poor Holly (daughter with the seizures} has acute Pneumonia we found out yesterday. Hope that's not what I'm getting. Got my 93 yo mom on antibiotic. She has Copd and can't imagine her living thru this.
Okay, so now you know why I will not be getting exercise. Don't even feel good enough to do chair exercises. Waaaaaaaaaaa.
Is your cast off yet sweetie?

Hugs
Debby

Praise the Lord! I was quite upset when I was told y'all were leaving :(

Donna has left before and come back - not sure about Jean - but who is Mark? You must have meant Mary, lol.

Diane -- Thanks for stopping by my SparkPage and leaving encouraging comments on my blogs. Maine is a beautiful state with mountains and rugged sea shore. I hope to get there to experience it.

The walking cast is good news. I'm sorry it doesn't have you climbing Katahdin, but getting up and down will be good ecercise for you. I hope it helps the healing process.
