A little spark in my life

It's time to spring clean here on my Spark page. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 3 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. Whatever it is, I want to be healthy. This winter has been a tough one. I have lost ground with my weight and my physical condition. It's time to spark! With that in mind, I am going to actively participate in the 5% Spring Challenge. This time I am a Tiger Monarch.

It's time to spring clean here on my Spark page. This is a different year and a different me. I have been retired for 3 years and have still to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. Whatever it is, I want to be healthy. This winter has been a tough one. I have lost ground with my weight and my physical condition. It's time to spark! With that in mind, I am going to actively participate in the 5% Spring Challenge. This time I am a Tiger Monarch.

5% Challenge goals
1. I will eat three healthy meals and record each thing I eat.
2. I will choose healthy snacks.
3. I will exercise at least 10 minutes each day.
4. I will record my efforts on my team page.
4. I will encourage my teammates by visiting their pages and blogs.

I am in a constant battle to keep my weight down. I have been a yo-yo dieter since forever. Right now I'm just trying to get back to my first "got-to-lose" weight almost 40 years ago. Losing hasn't been the problem. Getting my mind set is usually where I first get stuck. Once I'm in, I'm all in and the weight comes off! The problem: I don't keep it off. I quit writing down my food and making healthy food choices. I love chocolate, fried foods, pastries, cookies . . . and I like baking. When I didn't have something yummy to eat, I made it.

SparkPeople has solved most of my problems if I will just keep on using the services offered. I like all of the help offered by SparkPeople website. The community here is very supportive and encouraging.

I have a wonderful family--my parents and all of my brothers, my husband, children, grandchildren. I want to keep healthy and be around for a long time. I'm glad I've added a little spark to my life!

emoticon emoticon emoticon Good morning! thanks for stopping by my page and leaving a note of encouragement. I am hoping to make my 5% this round. Last round, I just missed it then ended up losing the last little bit like 2-days later. Scale trolls do love to mess with me! Have a blessed weekend. Good luck on weigh in tomorrow! ...Go Tiger Mo's!
