Welcome to my Spark page.

Planning on having a Sparking good summer.

Motivation for Summer 5% Challenge
Dr. said I had to eat healthy, loose weight, and exercise more.
Exercise will give me more energy and I won’t have to take a nap every day.
Want to live an active life.
Exercise also give me a positive outlook.
Want to fit back into clothes that I bought last year.

Goals for Spring 5% Challenge:
1. To get back on track and stop putting back on weight that I had lost.
2. To stay within 1200 - 1600 calories.
3. Stregth training 1x a week.
4. Increase cardio to 20 min 6 days.
5. Focus on one day at a time.
6. Focus on the positive.
7. I CAN do this.

Winters are difficult for me. I have SAD and my body craves sunlight.
I need the Winter 5% Challenge to keep me motivated and responsible to my teammates.

Goals for Winter 5% Challenge:
1.Track my food and have 1200. to 1500 calories 6 days a week.
2. Do at least 10 minutes cardio 5x a week.
3. Strength training 2 days per week.
4. Weigh in and post my weight weekly
5. Support fellow members.
6. Love myself even when I mess up!

Every pound that is lost takes four pounds of pressure off of the joints.

A key to a healthy lifestyle is moderation, and moderation means setting limits, applying portion control, and making choices based on long-term health goals, not immediate gratification. I have to work on the “not immediate gratification” part. That is what I want for my life. Slow and steady wins the race and I am a winner.

Hi.

I don't know if you received an answer to the question you posted under 11 healthy home made gifts, asking what the chocolate spoons are for, but the intention is that they will be used to stir coffee or cocoa.

They can be fun to make with or without kids.

Yvonne,

No, I'm not training for a 5K. I don't run at all, my knees won't handle it. I got some new Walk Slim by Leslie Sansone DVDs at a yard sale a month or so ago that have the interval training on them. I really like the routine it is fast paced but still manageable. I just walk faster on the part where it calls for "Boosted Walking" which is jogging.

I am fortunate enough to work in a place in the country so if the weather allows I can take a lunchtime hike around the property.

I hope you are where you want to be on your healthy lifestyle journey. I can't seem to be able to lose anything. In fact I just keep gaining a little bit at a time. Don't know for sure what I'm going to do. I've almost outgrown all of my clothes and I don't want to have to buy more. I just hope I can maintain through the holidays and then really crack the whip on myself after the first of the year and get the weight I've gained back off.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. We are going to Denver to spend the holiday with our son.

In regard to your question on my photo - yes we hiked up. The picture is actually of my grandkids. I love the Liberty Cap trail, but it's definitely a bit of work.

The photo at the waterfall is a trail outside Silverton. It is called Ice Lake trail. I have yet to make it to the very top, but it's beautiful.

You're welcome Yvonne. Just take it one day at a time and you can do it. Since January 27th I am down 36.8 pounds. I am getting closer to what I want to weigh. My husband is off all his meds now. And I am down in to a misses size 16 jeans. You met me when I was wearing a women's 24-26 size.
