I'm turning 60 in 2018 & have been on/off a healthy lifestyle for years...I know that changing habits is key, so I'm looking forward to using the tools that Spark offers & meeting others like me-on their way to being more fit & healthy for the long term!

Member Since: 1/2/2018

Fitness Minutes: 998

My Goals:
Specific Short Term Goals

I will use Spark to log foods/exercise daily
My long term goal is to lose at least 100# in the next year by Jan. 1 (290 to 190)
Weekly goal: 2#/week with losing a pant size or 20# by March 1
I'll begin an exercise program of 3 days/week for 30 minutes by walking, riding a bike & light weights for the first month
I'll stay within 200 calories of my goal each day (Setting initial calorie goal at 2000-will drop 100 calories each month until at 1600)
I'll aim for a calorie deficit of at least 1000 calories/day-calories in/calories out
I'll connect with at least one member each week
I'll measure/post non-scale measurements of my progress each month/weigh weekly

Here's my 10% approach

10% loss of lbs.: 30-Date met....
10% loss off inches-waist, hips, chest: 15-Date met...
10% fewer calories eaten: 200 down from 2000: Date met...
10% MORE exercise: 0 minutes/day to 10 minutes per day: Date met....
10% higher energy level: from a 4/10:

My Program:
The program I'm intending to use is just logging/tracking food & exercise & being consistent with this-no excuses & keeping my goals in mind while using the resources in Spark to kick start my efforts & keep me going

Personal Information:
I'm a mom of two grown children, have two grandchildren & one on the way & am SO ready to retire from my profession of teaching & begin a new chapter of my life...married for nearly 35 years & love to travel, read, find treasures at auctions, etc.

Other Information:
I've had a lifelong struggle with emotional eating, so I know this is going to take some time-whenever I've made progress in the past, it's because I've been/stayed motivated & have had a support base-right now, I have no support base & am just tired of being tired. I want to improve my overall healthy & energy level as well as fit into my various sizes of clothes I've accumulated!

    I row on a sculling team. Except this season I will be out as of April for a minor shoulder surgery. I have a frozen shoulder.
    I saw the water rowers and yes they're pricey but really nice .
    I just picked up a cheap rower the Soozier ABS Monitored to practice at home prior to surgery and to get stronger after. I will know more tomorrow after I see the surgeon. The best thing for frozen shoulder is to keep moving to regain range of motion.
    My husband thinks I am crazy as I have a treadmill , maxi climber ,and indoor cycling but I do use all machines.

    Thank you for the encouragement on my "Today I will be gentle and patient with myself." blog. I hope you will have a terrific Tuesday.
