disclaimer: i do the no caps thing as it's a lot easier on my hands - if i could figure out a way to not hit the space bar my thumbs would be so happy!

so i do some things right, but not often enough to really achieve the level of fitness & good health i'd like.

i eat well, but too much. i like to exercise, but have trouble finding the time & then i get derailed by injuries (big & small). i am not very consistent with planning meals and getting in workouts.

i've lost 10-12 pounds a year for the last four years, but would like to lose the last 45 or so this year.

Member Since: 2/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 4,901

My Goals:
short term:

wear a chic dress to the auction march 20 (it's already hanging in the closet)

get rid of the last of those size 14s and get a new pair of fancy jeans

long term:

get to 130 pounds &/or size 6/8

run 30 mins 3 times per week

swim & bike (this isn't as hard as running)

good numbers - cholesterol etc.

My Program:
yoga at least 3 times per week

use the spark daily (fitness & nutrition particularly)

working up to:

20 mins walking daily

30 mins biking 3 times per week

swimming 3 times per week

Personal Information:
i have three daughters 23, 22, 17, and a nice husband who is home on the weekends.

i live near the beach & try to get there once a week.

i work full time.
i am working on my college degree and hope to finish in 2011.

my hobbies include: singing in the church choir, cooking, being more conscious about the way i live my life, gardening, reading, music, and movies. getting old has made it hard to enjoy some of these, but i'm going to make it work.

i have re-discovered my love of exercise, so i don't think of it as a hobby! i am loving yoga & swimming. biking is okay. i can't wait til i can walk & maybe even run for fitness again.

    You are so right about not buying the "wrong" stuff. I brought 2 bags of dark chocolate Dove's Promises to work. I don't need any of that stuff at all!!!

    Thanks for your comment on my "organization blog". I checked out your page and noticed you are relatively new to spark people so I wanted to tell you how much it has helped me.

    It looks like you are alot like me...struggling with consistency...and that's exactly what spark people has helped me has helped me build consistent healthy habits...

    So...good luck reaching your goals...and I'll pass on one more thing...the nutrition tracking has been key to me...It is more important to log the bad days than the good, because it helps me identify my problem areas & triggers (for me not enough sleep) and has often stopped me from really going overboard...It's also helped me to realize just how easy it is to consume too many calories...

    Hope you have great success with spark people!

    Just posted a l-o-n-g winded response to your question in swimming for cardio. Short answer - don't let 'em intimate or annoy you. You're doing a great thing for your body, and building up to a mile is a fantastic goal and challenge!
