Doing it again in 2011

Alright, it's a new year and hopefully a new me. I lost all the weight I needed to in 2007 but gained it back in the last year and a half. Had a couple stressful years that didn't help either, includine the loss of two loved kitties, two years in a row. Sooooo, needless to say I got to start from the beginning again. Now I'm on disability and not working, it's going to be harder to keep it off and with foot surgery coming up in a couple months, I really need to watch what I eat, how much I ...
Alright, it's a new year and hopefully a new me. I lost all the weight I needed to in 2007 but gained it back in the last year and a half.

Now I'm on disability and not working, it's going to be harder to keep it off and with foot surgery coming up in a couple months, I really need to watch what I eat, how much I eat, how to exercise, etc. Need to get back on schedule. Got a new exercise bike, ma's old treadmill, a new kitty Taz-he's even keeping Sneaky Pi in line, and a new positive attitude, I believe I can do it!

Fitness Minutes: 9,065

My Goals:
To get back to my normal weight again and staying that way.

Staying healthy, keeping fit.

Get my craft room done so I can start making curtains for me, my ma and some friends.

Just being there for me, keeping with a positive attitude not saying I can't do it.

My Program:
Getting back to a regular eating & exercise schedule and sticking to it. Keeping a daily menu if I have to with workout scedule.

Working a little at a time getting the basement/craft room done. Slow and easy is the best way.

Personal Information:
I'm Emily, I'll be 47 in Feb. live in Chicago-southside. A major Cubs fan though I'll watch a Sox game or two. Married for 14yrs, have two furry kids, Sneaky Pi who's 17yrs old and just adopted Taz who's 2yrs old.
I'm on disablility because of a major car accident. Had to learn to walk better and work on my back/neck. Had foot surgery last year and going in again this year. I'm on medication for seizures, have Epilepsy. Another reason to stay in shape and keep healthy.

Other Information:
I love to read, have a library of over 1600 books & counting. I love crafts like sewing and crocheting. I love making curtains since the ones in retail are YUCK! My fave things to crochet are afghans & potholders. I also make candles, soap & bottles.

Working on a craft room, but it going slow. With the money crunch, it's hard.

I love animals and do a 5K run/walk called Bark in the Park for the past 16yrs. It's for a local shelter and totally fun. I try to volunteer when I can.

Hey Em,

I have been off Spark for a few months, been really busy trying to finish school and finally get that degree! I have two more courses and I graduate Sept 22. I can't wait either, it will be nice to have some free time to do other things. Like workout and lose weight:( I gained back everything I lost last summer, sucks! Hope to hear from you soon.

Kim

Oh dear Em.....

My heartfelt sympathies on Taz's passing. My heart is hurting for you.....but think, my dear, he's at peace....no more pain.
And think of the memories you've made together....
I hope you are OK. Get out and walk in nature.....that's what I did each time I 'lost' one of my furbabies over the years.
Thinking of you......

Best love, Libby

So sorry. I've been there but I didn't get out soon enough. However, my life is fantastic now but things are always looking up. I won't give you advice but there is so much life waiting for you to live it, whatever you decide. Blessings and prayers for you to the Great Spirit.
