SparkPoints: 9,200

Fitness Minutes: 1,038

My Goals:
My goal is to be comfortable in my own body, no matter what the number on the scale says. I'd also like to participate in a race (5K walking initially) for the thrill of the event.

My Program:
Log food and fitness and water, every day. Strive to move 6000 steps every day. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Meditate at least 5 minutes every day. Strength train 3 times a week.

Personal Information:
As a nurse for many years, I"m adept at being a caregiver, less at being a caretaker. I find that I love what I do as a nurse, from teaching new moms how to change a diaper to responding to emergencies. I also love Centering Prayer, reading a variety of books and blogs, gardening, traveling, and food (cooking and eating).

Other Information:
I am reading all of the books (one at a time) in my study that I bought over the years.

Hey, thanks for adding me as a friend and commenting on my blog about the BodyMedia Fit armband!

After I posted that blog in May 2011, I stopped wearing it. Interestingly enough, I also maintained (actually gained a bit) weight for the remainder of 2011. In May 2011, I was about 185, and I ended the year at 194. I got serious again at the beginning of this year and began wearing the armband again mid-February. I've lost about 20 lbs since that time.

So -- to answer you -- I really like it and do feel like it helps me with my weight loss. Ultimately it's my eating and exercise that determine the weight I lose. The device is simply another way for me to hold myself accountable. Example: if I have a daily calorie burn in mind, being able to actually see my calories burned helps me to reach my goal and figure out how hard/long I have to work out to reach that goal. If you're a numbers person like me, I would suggest getting some sort of armband or HRM.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

Hi...there's been 'talk' from a Sparker Seemaine, who mentioned about meeting Sparkers from Tucson and Phoenix area...but I haven't heard any dates...of course I will let you know if that materializes.
Now that the weather is cooler, we could set up something to meet for a walk. I am retired and can meet anytime. The cooler the better for me...LOL
We'll keep in touch!
