Re-Start #17

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.

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!

Fitness Minutes: 21,734

My Goals:
Weigh 152 by 10/19/15

Begin by setting short term goal - 195 by 4/30/15.

Make sure to exercise 5 out of 7 days each week.

Complete eccentric exercise 1 x per week.

My Program:
1) Forgetting all the great excuses that I have used to prevent myself from achieving my long-term goals.
2) Setting some short term goals that build to long term goal. Duh - with no goals no wonder I'm floating around like a cork on the ocean!
3) Being more invested in this endeavor. It isn't going to happen by magic.


Personal Information:
I live in Northwest GA - a beautiful community.
The best part of my life is being a Mom to 2 beautiful daughters and Gabby to 3 (soon to be 4) beautiful grands.
SEC Football is the greatest, and there is NO team that can compare with my UGA Bulldogs - GO DAWGS!
