Liberty Walk for Life

In April of 2013, I adopted a SUSTAINABLE new lifestyle.

My "simple" rules for a healthy diet:

1. Eat (mostly) unprocessed food.
2. Choose variety, variety, variety.
3. Eat when hungry.

My advice to anyone seeking to lose weight:

1. Do not engage in any weight loss "gimmick" that you are not willing to maintain for the rest of your life.
2. Increase your physical activity.
3. See "simple" rules above.

Your healthy weight will then find you.

Words of wisdom: Envision who you want to be and don't ever doubt for a second that you can become that person. Your thoughts are more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

SparkPoints: 8,640

Fitness Minutes: 13,407

My Goals:
Goal #1: Race a 5K. Done.
Goal #2: Run a 10K. Done.
Goal #3: Maintenance. In process.


My Program:
Food: I follow the three simple rules noted in my introduction. I tend to be hungry every three hours or so, so I eat five or six mini-meals a day.

Exercise: I run four or five days a week and am planning to run my first half-marathon in the Fall. I also try to incorporate as much activity as possible into my days. As with food, I find variety to be a very important component of any exercise program. I walk, bike, kayak, snowshoe, backpack, hike, and cross-country ski.

Other Information:
The beautiful dog shown in the photos is a rescue named Bella, and she was my walking companion for 13 years. Sadly, at the advanced age of 15, she has slowed down considerably. Love her.

Love the picture of your dog and reading that she is your walking buddy. So sad when they start to age and slow down. Good that you have found ways to stay active and get out and exercise. Believe me, it gets much harder when you are in your 60s/70s -- there may be the "will" to do active things, but the body just balks at anything too adventuresome or stressful or strenuous! Keep up your goals -- you are an inspiration to all of us! emoticon
