SparkPoints: 3,792

Fitness Minutes: 7,900

My Goals:
To keep consistent, honest nutritional tracking to shave off winter weight gain. Again.

And... to keep up the muscle!

My Program:
My training is Newtonian in nature: bodies in motion tend to stay in motion; bodies at rest tend to stay at rest.

I am always trying to burn the fat and feed the muscle.

As well, I'm always trying to create good habits and drop bad ones. It seems this process never ends.

I value strength, softness, flexibility and agility in everything I do.

I have tried many nutritional programs, and find that, for me, a low carb + 1200-1300 cal/day progarm works best. This year I am limiting myself to ONE piece of fruit/day to see if it makes a difference.

I love to move, but get no benefit from logging the fitness minutes. Pretty much I'm active 4 hours/day barring illness/special events. I make sure to always include something at high intensity at some point in the day.

Personal Information:
As Alice Walker says, "hard times require furious dancing!"

I love to dance! I dance whenever I can and hope to never stop. I especially LOVE TO TAP! I try to take a dance fitness class EVERY weekday.

I'm trying to keep up the weight lifting, but find it's harder and harder to keep up the muscle as I get older. Got some joint challenges but doing the best I can. Trying to mix up the training as much as possible, to stay as fit as possible for as long as possible.

I used to practice karate, but have switched to internal styles of bagua and taiji. I plan on being one badass granny :D

This year, I am learning Taiko drumming and am grateful for the opportunity to be part of an amazing group of men and women.

I love to HIKE, travel, read, eat, cook and play in the outdoors. I believe you have got to keep the JOY in everything you do because life is too damn short!



Other Information:
I believe that each day is a miracle.

I believe that YOU are a miracle!

I believe that LOVE is the answer, whatever the question.

Never stop moving! xo

Happy Friday-We made it to the weekend!

My daughter has a cold so of course she wanted hugs and now I have it too. She’s fifteen and so touchy –feely all of a sudden. She was opposite to my friends kids….she wasn’t as open with us until last year. My son is trying to take care of me while I am not feeling well—so sweet. I am slammed at work so the show must go on.

This weekend is my last weekend to pack for moving. I move on the 19th and still have so much to do. I’ve resulted to sitting things on the curb just to get rid of them.


What are your plans? How’d you do on your goals this week? I basically stayed on track…needed to exercise more.

I was thinking this morning---

Happy Monday!

It’s officially August. I already set my goals, benefits and decided how I will track my success this month.
Today is the first day of school for my kids (8th and 10th grade)

From Reader’s Digest

At the school where my mother worked, the two first-grade teachers were named Miss Paine and Mrs. Hacking. One morning the mother of a student called in the middle of a flu epidemic to excuse her daughter from school.
“Is she in Paine or Hacking?” the school secretary asked.
“She feels fine, “said the confused mom. “We have company and I’m just keeping her home.”

-Countdown-
I move in 18 days
My in-laws arrive from OH today
I go the Get Motivated Seminar in 9 days

So how are you doing? Already set your August goals?

It is SunDay.

Hope you’ve had a good one. I had a meeting at work—

I ate dinner at a friend’s house today. I was picking around trying to find something “healthy” to eat and was just thinking about how this journey is not easy but well worth it. Dinner was good and I made good food choices.
There's no easy way out.
If there were, I would have bought it.
And believe me, it would be one of my favorite things!
-Oprah Winfrey

I encourage you to make healthy food choices, drink plenty of H2O and keep moving forward.

We can do this.
