Fitness Minutes: 64,614

My Goals:
Problems with the spine (herniated discs and an untreated case of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis) have caused me to cease all physical activity and subsequently gain a few pounds. So, as of August 14, 2016 I recommitted to weight loss. My new goals are:
- Lose 20 pounds.
- Walk 20 km per week.
- Get back to a descent state of fitness.
- Stop hurting so much. (Can I call this a goal?)

My Program:
- Healthy food choices as close as possible to the principles of clean eating.
- Portion control.
- Exercise at least 5 times a week. (Strength Training, Yoga, Pilates - for now!)
- Walk, walk, walk as much as I can and as far as I can!
- Never forget that this is FOR LIFE!

Greek | Full-time mom | Blogger at | Healthy living fan | Nature lover | Bookworm | Introvert (INFJ) | Movie lover | Spark veteran

Other Information:
If you love nature (especially forests and mountains), if you like taking photographs (especially landscapes), if you love books and movies (especially mystery, fantasy and dystopian novels and films), if you enjoy baking (especially making surprise birthday cakes) and if you are a dedicated mom, we're probably friends! We just don't know it yet!

    “Go for broke, my friends. Straighten your spine when you step to the podium. Trust your own tongue. Believe that your weary legs will hold you until you reach the finish line. And reach it you will if you give it your all. Fall if you must, crawl if you must, but don’t you dare give up or give in until you’ve made it to the end. For at the end is where your great reward will be to begin anew. A new chance. A new life. A new you.”

    Thank you so much Elle for your lovely note! It looks like the floods are finally receeding, I can't wait for it all to be over, it is scary and sad.
    How are you doing? Sending lots of hugs your way!!! emoticon

    hope all is well, agree spring came & went quickly - though we are smack in the middle of summer here in Sacramento, it's been 100 deg.
