Getting ready for the Winter Challenge...

Hello all! I'm looking forward to the challenge in the next day or two.... I NEED to have some accountablity to keeping on track, exercising, and monitoring my blood sugar and carbs. I think the Challenge is just what I need...

My goals for the challenge include:
* Exercise 5 days a week, starting with 15 minutes but increasing throughout the challenge
* Adding strength training week 3 or 4 of the challenge - especially focusing on my upper body to address my arthritis
* Supporting my team mates as we strive to meet the challenge through the holiday season
* Monitoring my blood sugar 3x a day as requested by my PCP
* Tracking food intake at all times, managing my carbs to 135-145 grams each day
* DRINKING 8 glasses of water at a minimum each day

I hope this message finds you all well, happy and excited on your Spark Journey! We can do this together...

I'm back after almost a year away. I haven't made a lot of progress but will make that happen now.

I'm employed, still married, happy "mom" to Cisco who is challenged with a debilitating illness, and back in graduate school.

I'm looking forward to learning from all of the SparkPeople out there who have learned to live a more fit and active lifestyle.

God Bless you all... Enjoy your Thanksgiving no matter where you are... Remember to be grateful for the little things.

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. When I came to your page I had to add you as a friend. I love your photos and that you live in New Mexico and have boxers. You sound like me in alot of ways. If you'd like to add me too, that would be great! Good luck in achieving your goals and I'm looking forward to getting to know you and being on the Spark Spirit Team with you! Stay strong-we can do it!! Connie
