It's time to get real. I want to be healthier. My career comes with high stress now, so in order to keep that in check, I need to be physically healthy. That means it's time to get on board, it's time to get moving, it's time to eat better, it's time to make healthier choices.
I've done this before - I know I can do it again.
It's time ...
* Lose 20 lbs
* Fit into size 6 jeans again
* Have a tummy I'm proud to show off
1. Work out regularly. Cardio 4-5 times a week, and strength 3-4 times a week.
2. Eat healthy and balanced meals and snacks. I'll track my food and watch calories, protein, carbs, calcium, and fat.
3. Learn how to make this a life style without hating it.
My "life indulgences" include quilting, crafting, reading, down-hill skiing, biking, cooking, and baking. And of course every minute with my family.

Hi. Just wanted to thank you for the encouraging words on my sparkpage blog! I appreciate all the encouragement I can get! I sometimes lament the fact that I was a size 3 when we got married 20 years and 3 babies ago! LOL! But I will get back down to at least a healthy weight. We all will.
Thanks again! God bless! Gwen

Thank you for all your encouraging words.
As a busy mom myself, I know how hard it is to balance family, work, and on top of it all, trying to find time to exercise. I really appreciate all your great ideas for challenges. They have been a great help to me in keeping me motivated.
