Thanks for visiting my page! I am on a long journey of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible!
I have been working out since I was 20 years old. I have a grown son and daughter, a hubby, and two wonderfully sweet dogs, Skeet, 13, and Bentley, 5.
I have found that there is no easy "maintaining." It is always a healthy weight plan. Basically, think of maintaining the same way you thought of "getting to my goal" plan. They both do the same and stay the same. It can be a troubling mix to try to switch your thinking from "weight loss" to "maintenance."
Loving life and enjoying this community!
"If I started exercising when I first started thinking about it, I'd be done by now."
Maintaining and working at walking my dogs daily, doing abs daily and weights 2-4 days a week. I like to spend time walking and with hubby and dogs adding some hikes to my workouts. My family is very supportive!
Walk dogs daily 20-25 minutes
abs 5 minutes daily
weights 2-4 x/week
if time, do a YouTube workout, DVD, walk with a friend, etc. - anything to stay active and moving
"Never choose to be annoyed. Choose to be amused."
Originally from St. Paul, MN. My grandmother emigrated to this country back in the '20's and met my grandfather at English speaking school. Something I feel like I got from my grandma is discipline: "The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do. They don't like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose."
My favorite book is the Bible, but I love reading Christian historical fiction. My favorite movies are National Lampoon's Family Christmas Vacation, What About Bob, and White Christmas. My favorite quote is "We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons." My newest quote is, "It's not the work that's hard, it's the discipline."
