I have struggled with weight and motivation issues for years. I always felt that making healthier choices was too hard. But the truth is it is no harder than living with my bad decisions: Never happy with the ways clothes fit, avoiding special occasions and photos, not being able to enjoy outdoor activities with friends and family...always being sad and embarrassed.

After years of abusing my health, my body finally cried "uncle". Now I MUST get my act together. I consider this a fresh start. I am ready to take steps toward my long term goals. I will progress as best I can as my body continues to recover and grows stronger each day.

Every journey begins with the first step. The key to success is consistently taking steps toward my objective. No matter how slow I go, or how long it takes, I will be better for the effort.

My Goals:
Like seeing photos of myself again.

Feeling fit/able to enjoy activities around the property.

Stay focused on Heart Healthy eating habits.

Exercise every day.

Make workouts consistently longer/harder as I am safely able to.

Eat meals "on-time" or have a healthy snack if I am delayed. If my body knows what to expect it will keep my metabolism revving :-)

Get up and DO Something every 1/2 hour. Sitting for prolonged periods shuts down "the burn".

Walking 1.5 mi. 3X week

Resistance training 3X week.

Get up and move every 1/2 hr.


Diet:

Follow Spark People food plan and only stock the house with healthy choices.

Eat at regular intervals to optimize my metabolism.

Personal Information:
After years of letting myself go, starting and stopping programs, letting frustration and depression lead me to make bad decisions...I am now ready to make lifetime changes. Little steps forward every day. Forgiveness for days when I don't do as well. Always moving in a positive direction.

I want you to embark on the truth of loving yourself because when you love yourself and when you appreciate yourself, you will make healthy changes in your life for healthy reasons.

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog! I really did enjoy the vacation, and I loved the meals, lol. We even indulged in dessert a couple of times. Guess that is one of the reasons I was really happy to break even too, lol.
