Enough of the translucent stuff. 2010- Jan 17th I'm off and running.
See you at the finish line. But wait, there isn't a finish line, this is an on going process to find a new and healthier way of life. A journey that we are all ...

Fitness Minutes: 8,989

My Goals:
To lose weight, make exercise part of my new life style, so that I can look younger, have more energy and live longer.

My Program:
Making a major effort to stay with 1200 to 1550 cal range.
Have begun to incorporate exercise into my life on a daily basis if at all possible.
Joined the 10 Min Fitness Club- so I must do at least 10 mins. a day cardio.
Aiming for 14 min. at least.
Since I have been inactivae for sometime, it will take awhile to build up steam.
But as the little train, said
"I think I can, I think I can,
---I can, I can, I can.

Some people bloom late. emoticon Some very late. emoticon And some, very, very late. emoticon

But they all bloom. And the longer it takes, the more spectacular it is.

Quite the deal, huh? emoticon

This is from the Cleveland Clinic and I thought it was so good I had to copy and share with my Spark Friends!

"What has your body done for you lately? A whole lot, actually! Focusing on function, not form, can encourage healthy habits.
Daily Dose
Loving your body and treating it well — with nutritious food, regular exercise and enough sleep — go hand in hand. Understanding your thoughts and feelings about your body can be useful, especially since that mirror, mirror on the wall can be the most fickle of them all. emoticon The media messages we take in, from Facebook to advertising, as well as other people’s opinions, can strongly sway how we view our bodies. Create a wellspring of inside-out body love by taking a trip outside the appearance paradigm. Instead of focusing on what your body looks like, focus on what it does for you. Perhaps it allows you to run around with your kids or grandkids, walk up stairs, or sit on your porch and wave to neighbors. Maybe it supports you while walking, playing tennis or climbing mountains. emoticon emoticon emoticon Consider your senses: Does your body let you see sunsets, listen to music and laughter, and smell fir trees? Your body, whatever its shape, size or condition, allows you to live your life. Make a list of all the things your body does in a day, and be especially sure to include those little things you used to take for granted. Then spend time appreciating it — you’ll be even more motivated to eat well, move regularly and keep up the other habits that contribute to a strong and healthy you!"
