This is my real life - not a practice round!

So much for the back story. I'm in this to improve my quality of life and hopefully to look a little better. I'm changing things up a little. Forget not using the scale. By ignoring it, I'm not making the kind of progress I need to make....that is , NO PROGRESS.

So, BACK TO DAILY WEIGH-INS TO KEEP ME ACCOUNTABLE!!
(I'm leaving the rest of my 'whys' / history below, in case you're suffering from insomnia, or in case it might open the door to dialogue between us.)

Back in the Spark world again, and I realize how much I have missed this supportive community. My life is still a little crazy. I work in Social Services and travel throughout the state quite a bit. Both daughters live in town and they have their own sweet families so I'm able to play with my grandbabies some - 3 so far, with another due in September. I'm in a long term relationship with a wonderful man who is my best friend and cheerleader! I have a lot to live for, but without making significant changes in my lifestyle and making better choices, my health will suffer.

After being absent for a couple of years, I have added a few pounds. This is the place I really need to be connected with to ensure my focus on health and getting rid of fat becomes a reality. This lifestyle change is really needed. Turning 60 this past October made me realize that I really don't need to play around at this any more.

My previous fitness program was intense and provided virtually no weight loss results. I have realized that counting calories may work for some, but not for me. I heard someone recently say that "weight loss is not a math equation, it is a science experiment!" There are many factors that affect weight, and I think hormones play a huge part. So, I promise to quit doing the same thing and expecting different results.

My new plan is to follow the SANE method based on "The Calorie Myth" by Jonathan Bailor. This is a Science based program that is based on the research of thousands of scientific studies. I plan to follow these 5 steps:

1 - Eat SANE foods (10 servings of non-starchy veggies per day, high quality lean proteins, whole food fats, and low-fructose fruits).
2 - Gradually, safely and sustainably exercise as many of my muscle fibers as possible for 10 - 20 mins once per week and to do interval exercises once per week.
3 - Get 8 hours of sleep per night.
4. Stay hydrated
5 - Do something to restore myself - like yoga, dance, stretching, walking, etc. each day.

Okay, that's it for now. My goal weight is 152 lbs. A sort of random number, but when I weighed that I felt good. I wanted to get back to my original weight, but 7# 6 oz. is not possible!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Nobody knows the truffles I’ve seen. . .

I eat chocolate with my wine so that I’m not drinking wine on an empty stomach.

Everyone thinks a girl’s dream is to find the perfect guy. Pfft . . . .
In reality, every girl’s dream is to get thin by eating chocolate.

Anything with raisins in it would be 10 times better with chocolate chips instead; For example, a box of raisins.

If dark chocolate is less fattening, eat your chocolate with the lights out. Problem Solved!

Thanks for dropping in to say Hi, and hope to see you later at Happy Hour.

Chocolate makes everyone smile!
A piece of chocolate in the mouth is worth two on the plate.
Some like it hot - some like it cold. I like “it” to be chocolate.
Chocolate is to women what duct tape is to men - it fixes everything.
Love makes the world go round, but chocolate makes it worth the trip.

"Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step." ~ Naeem Callaway

Progress is progress, and all is good as long as it's forward movement. It doesn't have to be "physical movement", because it can also include all the positive choices we make in our day, and that's definitely a step in the right direction. So don't get discouraged - just keep choosing what you think is right for you - right in this moment.
