Hi, I am Janey. Welcome to my Spark Page.
Currently a member of the Spring 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 and good attitude 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 Spring 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.

Spring 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 Deepak and I can do this!

Mini-Challenge for you: "Get healthier with the See-Food Diet" emoticon emoticon

Place ready-to-eat freggies on the center shelf of your fridge (or on your countertop)—where they are at eye level & easy to grab when hunger strikes. You’re 3X more likely to eat the first food you see.

You may consume less fast food & fewer sugary drinks when eating meals at the same time most days. Staying on a schedule prompts you to plan ahead, keeping you from getting too hungry & grabbing whatever’s available all day long.

Mini-Challenge this week: "Be a Mindful Eater"

emoticon emoticon The way you eat your food is directly linked to how much you eat. If you eat on autopilot (grabbing breakfast as you're headed out the door, eating lunch while working at your desk, or having dinner in front of the TV), it just doesn't register how much you're actually consuming.

Being a "mindful eater," you're concentrating on the flavor of your food & savoring ever bite. Eating slowly allows your body to register fullness sooner and fully enjoy what you're eating. And "mindful eaters" tend to stress less about what they are eating period.

emoticon for stopping by my HOUSEWORK blog... My back is sore today so the No Housework Holiday was fun to do. But to be honest, given the choice of playing or cleaning house...You Know which one I choose. A spotless house is a sign of a person who needs therapy. Have a great weekend...and enjoy.
