I am participating in the Spring 5% Challenge.

My commitment to exercise is to get 12,500 steps a day (5 miles), 30 minutes of exercise including walking, gardening, strength training for my arms and stretching.

My nutrition plan is a combination of NoS* and SparkPeople's Food Tracker (1,500 calories day).

* No-S Diet: No Sweets, No Snacks, No Seconds, Except (Sometimes) on Saturdays, Sundays and Special Days.

Member Since: 5/16/2011

Fitness Minutes: 136,318

My Goals:
Exercise is NOT a problem for me. Food is where I have problems. I strive to have control over my eating habits with moderation and consistency. Stress and sugar are triggers for me. I have a bad habit of mindless snacking that I am working hard to conquer.

Long Range Goal: 150 lbs. so clothes fit properly and can bend and move without struggle

Medium Range Goal: Lose 1 pound per week
Reward: New Magazine

Daily Goal: Count (up) days of HONEST and ACCURATE food tracking
Daily Reward: Sticker on the calendar

My Program:
No-S guidelines EVERYDAY (not just weekdays). Participating in 5% Challenges and In-Between Challenges.
Minimum 30 minutes exercise, 12,500 steps a day, arm exercises, stretching and 12 glasses of water daily. Staying in my calorie range with healthy, fresh, whole, and natural foods (not processed). NO SNACKING!!!

Personal Information:
Retired kindergarten teacher. Love flower gardening, cooking and music (learning to play piano). Getting out for my daily walks is a joy in the sunshine. Not so much joy in cold weather. (Those of you that live in colder climates give me inspiration!) Three grandkids nearby, so they are here often. Those are times I find it hard to stay on track, due to mindless snacking.
