Welcome to my Spark page.

Looking forward to a good summer.

2015 Summer 5% Challenge Commitment

Walk Mon - Sat for at least 20+ minutes
Strength Training Tues and Sat 10 minutes
Post food
Drink 6 glasses water daily
Get back on track.



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. Strength 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.

I'm doing quite well. I square danced last night and did okay I'm slower than usual but people were patient with me. I go back to the doctor on Friday Hopefully, I will get to wear both shoes again after the office visit. I know My foot will bother me for some time afterwards but at least I won't be hampered by the boot.
I hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer.

I haven't been getting much exercise because I tend to push myself once I get started and I want to heal as quickly and as well as possible and I'm afraid if I got started I would do too much. Only a couple of more weeks then I can start walking with crutches or a walker with limited use oh my foot. I'm looking forward to it.

Sounds like you spent quite a bit of time on the road, but I'm sure you enjoyed the time with your family. Congratulations to you grandchildren on their graduations. It is quite an accomplishment any more.

have a great evening

Where did you go and what did you do while you were gone? We probably won't travel much this summer because if my foot.
