Hi, I am Janey. Welcome to my Spark Page.
Currently a member of the Winter 5% challenge, an eight week adventure that takes 12 teams "around the world". These 8 week fitness challenges have helped me to maintain my weight for over one year now! Thank you SPARK PEOPLE!

Nutrition Plan - My weight is hovering in maintenance at 140. My LAW (lifetime achievement weight) is 135. I set the LAW after a "bad" diet in 2011, got me down to 140, but sadly my body looked nothing ...
Hi, I am Janey. Welcome to my Spark Page.
Currently a member of the Winter 5% challenge, an eight week adventure that takes 12 teams "around the world". These 8 week fitness challenges have helped me to maintain my weight for over one year now! Thank you SPARK PEOPLE!

Nutrition Plan - My weight is hovering in maintenance at 140. My LAW (lifetime achievement weight) is 135. I set the LAW after a "bad" diet in 2011, got me down to 140, but sadly my body looked nothing like 140 had 20 years earlier!?! Now, after 3+ years with Spark, 140 is looking so 25 years ago! WOOHOO! The LAW of 135 is an overall Winter goal. I will track my food and fitness daily for the eight week challenge.

I follow the problem solver diet. "The problem solver food pyramid is based on the leader nutrient formula, targeting the foods that give you everything you need in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals daily. The problem solver food pyramid provides the essential metabolic energy that everyone should eat daily." taken from The Dieter's Dictionary and Problem Solver, an A to Z guide To Nutrition, Health, and Fitness, by Victoria Zak and Peter Vash, M.D., M.P.H.
Each challenge, I choose an area to work on for me. This has taught me about my relationships with food and also the fact that eight weeks is NOT eternity. This challenge I have chosen to again tackle SUGAR. My goal is to limit my refined sugar to 10 teaspoons a day.

Fitness Plan - Yoga minimum 20 minutes per day. Cardio work out 5x per week at least 60 minutes (vary walking and cycling). Strength training 3x per week at least 20 minutes (continuing Ab workouts, I will still NOT believe that woman on The Marie Osmond Show, who said we were not supposed to have attractive abs over 50!).

My triggers for food are when the cookies, muffins, bread, come out of the oven. I love to bake. The easy answer is to NOT bake, right!?! My current answer is to remake every recipe I see into a healthy one or not make it. I work with "kitchen time" as a barometer for success. Bake the batch of fat free muffins, save out two and either freeze or give away the rest.

Winter 2016. A new year and a new challenge. Given just 24 hours a day, I take half for rest and "me" time. I am most interested in how I divide up the other 12 hours. I give two each to food and fitness, leaving eight hours to learn new attitudes and habits, form and deepen meaningful relationships, work to stay calm and focus on my goals. I am positive I can do this!
