My Goals:
My goal is to be healthier, feel better, AND look better!





My Program:
My aim is progress, not perfection. I will be kind to myself and acknowledge that I will not meet these standards every time. However, if I meet them at least 80% of the time, I WILL REACH MY GOAL.

I WILL TRACK THE FOLLOWING PRACTICES:

1) EAT FOR THE BODY I WANT - A 140 pound woman who exercises 1-3 times a week needs approximately 1779 calories a day to maintain her weight. I will aim for a 1600-1800 calorie range on most days. This should result in a very slow but steady loss. At this rate, I should be at a healthy weight by September of 2017.

2) EAT FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH - I will choose a wide variety of wholesome foods with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. I will aim for the proper balance of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. I will track my fiber, iron, and calcium intake.

3) AEROBIC EXERCISE - I will make exercise a habit. My initial goal will be to get 70 minutes of exercise each week and build on that as my strength and stami

Personal Information:
When I STARTED SparkPeople . . . I was 44, happily married, mother of one son (17), a herd of cats, and a scottie. I work full time and am a part time SU demo.

9 years later . . . I'm still happily married with a grown son, a grandchild, 2 scotties, and a herd of cats! Plus a corgi!

Other Information:
I love to paper crafts, jewelry making, reading, cooking, travel, and having laughs and deep discussions with people I love.

Thanks for the encouragement on my blog! And by the way, I only have one cat. But she demands enough attention for a herd of cats.
