Super Me

Hi - I'm Marcia. I 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: 44,493

Fitness Minutes: 49,853

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 15 lbs by Oct 1,2015

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 exercise for at least until 30 minutes a day. I will do cardio for at least 3 days and muscle strengthening for 2 days. I will walk in the evening 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 week to monitor my progress.

Personal Information:
When I retired, 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!!!!"

We've had some hot days too. The day I went to yard sales was muggy with the rain and heat. We were going to bike ride, but it was too sticky. You had a busy day yesterday!

We got a LOT of clothes! That was search yesterday! I will buy them a couple of new outfits for school in August. Bike riding is so hard to teach! My daughter finally got her training wheels off last year. I did not learn how to ride until I was ten years old though. She's way ahead of me!

July is done for me! I won't be doing a challenge. I am helping out with another VBS and church camp and getting the kids ready for school. It starts AUGUST 12!!! Crazy early!

Maybe July will be better for you! Hang in there!
