Update 11/4/13: Somewhere in the period of selling my house and moving to another house, I lost my exercise regime....I basically stopped running altogether and have not been able to get back at it... this has resulted in more weight gain than I'd like to admit, so I'm back to starting over! I know what I need to do and just need to get back at it. Spark on friends!

Update 7/15/11: Somewhere in June, I got to my goal weight. The biggest thing I have changed was in trying to turn my running to lose weight into running to run! I love the way it makes me feel fit all over. I haven't changed my calorie intake much, but do allow for some extras at time, such as 2 cups of cherries vs. 1 or a few more nuts than I used to have. I still track my food. I am as happy as could be and have slowly won over my husband to my way of thinking. He has lost over 40 pounds just eating the same stuff I do (even though a little more..) My daughter has decided to try cooking healthy and my son, being an athlete, values some of the knowledge I have learned about the value of food as it applies to our bodies. I feel that understanding and respecting food has been my biggest helper. I have lost weight before but only through counting calories. It didn't matter what type of calories they were. Now I still read and research foods to ensure that my body is getting what it needs for daily living, not to mention running! I love spark and my spark friends!

9/30/10 I would like to lose weight (again) and actually be able to keep it off. My biggest challenge is maintenance. I gain back all of the weight plus a little more each time. A healthy lifestyle is my goal. My kids are almost all in college and I want to focus on myself.

"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." -John (the penguin) Bingham

My Goals:
My goal is not just to lose weight this time. I know that I don't properly support my body with good nutrition and exercise. What I want is to be healthy (even though I hope that means losing pounds also!)

My Program:
I am trying to follow the nutrition guidelines when eating my food each day. I love fruits and vegetables, but didn't eat enough of them in the past. For me, they cure my sweet tooth.

I am also trying to do cardio 3 days a week and some strength training along with that.

Personal Information:
I am a 46 year old mother of three amazing kids. I have delighted in my kids and spent every possible moment with them that I could. I also work full time in Washington DC, as an accountant, which seriously cuts into my free time...(commuting from Maryland.) I am also happily married to Jim.

Other Information:
I love dogs, hiking, exploring of any kind, traveling, being with my family, being with my friends, rain, exercising, balancing my checkbook to the penny, and other yet to be discovered things..... (working on this section still.)

I have rebooted my Spark persona. I used to be TimothyNohe. I just sent you a friend request as Timothy53. If it pleases you, would you confirm my request?

Hi Elaine, yes I live in Hungary, in the capitol Budapest.
We live in a very nice part of the city, close to the hills so I can reach them in a few minute drive if I want to run or walk there.
I'm not surprised you don't want to fit in morning exercise of you leave for work so early... but I guess you have all the late efternoon and evening to yourself : )
My schedule is the opposite: I usually work from 10:30 to 7 pm- So I can rise at 6:30 and still have a lot of time to myself before work. Of course my evenings are vary short in return : )

Wow, the move must have been stressful, I'm glad it is all done!

We too have a nice autumn weather here, it is quite warm for the time of the year, 50-60 degrees, but the trees already wear the fall colors. I enjoy my daily runs / walks in the morning very much.
I find the more time I take for myself, miraculously the more energy and the more time I have to do my work, and still have enough time to be with my family...
This is a very nice period of my life : )

1.9 miles is great! So close to 2. Stoney Creek seems like a great place to live- that's so nice to live on the water :)

Brr it sure is getting chilly!
