Super Me

Hi - I'm Marcia. I recently retired from teaching elementary school for 35 years. I am counting carbs and exercising in an attempt to prevent Diabetes. Maybe in the process I'll lose some weight too.

SparkPoints: 26,073

Fitness Minutes: 30,720

My Goals:
-My first goal is to keep my carbs in check to prevent Diabetes.
-My next goal is to exercise 30 minutes a day for at least 5 days a week.
--My last goal is to lose 10 lbs by July 1, 2013

My Program:
-I will count my carbs before I eat and make sure that I am staying within my healthy carb range of 45-50 carbs per meal and 15-20 carbs per snack. This includes 3 meals and 2-3 snacks a day.
-I will start with baby steps by making sure I exercise at least 10 minutes at day. Then I will gradually stretch this out until I am up to 30 minutes a day. I will do cardio for at least 3 days and muscle strengthening for 2 days. I will walk when I pick my granddaughter up from preschool on Mon, Wed and Fri. On Tues & Thurs, I will do a Spark Fitness Exercise Video.
-By counting my carbs and exercising I should be able to lose 2 pounds a month. I will weigh myself at the end of every 2 weeks to monitor my progress.

Personal Information:
I actually retired last August. My vision of retirement was staying in bed all day, eating Bon-Bons, curled up with a good book. However, my retirement has been much more enjoyable! Instead, I have been changing diapers, cleaning up messes, watching “Yo, Gabba Gabba”, singing “Don’t Bite Your Friends”, playing “Horsie-cart” and reading “Hop On Pop” until I’m blue in the face!!! I LOVE every minute! I’m so thankful my daughter gave me this chance to stay at home with her kids and be a Stay-At-Home-Gma!!

Other Information:
"Nothing's ever easy!!!!"

Thanks so much for the new running shoes! Hope you have found what you're looking for as far as virtual miles. I've found one for a walk across America and even a virtual hike of the Appalachian Trail. They are kind of fun to use! emoticon

Hey there fellow Egyptian Pioneer! As of yesterday, I have walked 49.15 miles according to my Fit Bit. I've made it to Nashville and I'm on my way!
