Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 9+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error, I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

My Goals:
1. Better nutrition: More veggies, more fruit, more whole foods, more water. It continues to be a challenge.

2. Improving my strength, endurance, and flexibility with continued regular workouts.

3. Achieving balance: Mind, body, and soul.

My Program:
1. Nutrition:
Focus will be on HYDRATION.
I'm terrible with water. Goal is 48 oz. a day. That's 6 cups. Even I should be able to do this.

2. Fitness:
Love to hike. You'll find me on the trail somewhere almost every weekend.

My favorite workout during the week is Zumba and/or kickboxing.

I also enjoy yoga to balance it all out.

3. Balance:
Aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

    Thank you for stopping by and reading my latest blog about my vacation and other stuff. Some days are better than others with my shoulder. Have been doing exercises for a couple of months, a bit of improvement with stretches and some lifting the arm with the other arm. Unfortunately using weights is still very difficult, going to try and lift a unopened soup can tonight to see if that is less painful. The instructions say use a 3 or 5 pound weight, ya that isn't working for me. I see the doctor a week from Tuesday for physical and will be mentioning the shoulder again.
    So you have moved, are you still close to were you had lived? Hope the new move works out well for you.

    Thank you for your blog comment! Yes I agree fats are very confusing. I seem to be miserable without some kind of fats. Maybe if I try sticking to the "good" ones it will help me to stop feeling hungry all the time.
