A Little Old Lady in Training

11/23/2012 - Maintenance: The Final Frontier! Heck with "Space"... unless you're talking about what one fills.

For newbies to this page... I was not always like this. It has been a long road getting here, with lots of hills and valleys. The "really, really before" picture is hidden in my photo gallery. Pictures are good reality checks for me, but I ran out of room and dumped some of the "in progress" progress photos to make room for recent athletic ones. I did keep the before ...
11/23/2012 - Maintenance: The Final Frontier! Heck with "Space"... unless you're talking about what one fills.

For newbies to this page... I was not always like this. It has been a long road getting here, with lots of hills and valleys. The "really, really before" picture is hidden in my photo gallery. Pictures are good reality checks for me, but I ran out of room and dumped some of the "in progress" progress photos to make room for recent athletic ones. I did keep the before January 2010 one that marked the beginning of maintenance, and you can see that in maintenance phase I've still become fitter.

Why "A little old lady in training"? "Little" because I have become small. "Old lady" because that is my goal, to live to a ripe old age. "In training" because that's how I intend to make that goal happen: by training my mind and body.

I stopped "drifting" downwards on the scale in July or August, 2010. I have become comfortable calling the 120's "home". I had found a comfortable way of eating healthy, a comfortable calorie range, and a training goal to keep fitness level alive. This is how I want to live the rest of my life.

Update 7/1/2014 - Basic biographical: I am a 61 and a half year old empty-nester. I've lost, regained, lost, regained, lost in cycles of years, across decades. I am more confident of maintenance than ever before in my life. If it takes the rest of my life to learn how to do this, I'll take that long, but I feel I'm very close.

No name-brand program or diet is the "final answer" for me: I'm a compulsive over-eater. I might change programs to give myself a motivational shot in the arm, and as long as the program I choose to use is balanced nutrition and activity, I'm good. The end goal is to keep working at developing and maintaining healthy habits.

SparkPoints: 118,315

Fitness Minutes: 93,849

My Goals:
Stay on track, live consistently, be healthy. That means a balanced diet and an active lifestyle. Nothing says you have to curl up in a ball just because you're past the half-century mark.

My Program:
The two pieces of my program:

1) Reduce my intake of saturated fats, while eating a balanced diet with my favorite fruits and veggies prominent.

2) Keep moving at the rate of 30 minutes of walking almost every day, and two strength training days a week.

Personal Information:
Obviously, from my groups, you might infer I'm from Nebraska. You would be right. I grew up around here, moved away while my son was young, and moved back when he was a teenager. Love it here, it's home.

Thank you for the blog love on my bike riding post. The bridge had a heavy wire wall, about shoulder height so, though it was high, it wasn't scary. We certainly enjoyed the ride and plan on doing others. emoticon

Congrats on the UNDER 30 5K time!! You can run with me any day!!! -Well, actually, if you can run under 30 after the swim and bike, I'm sure you could leave me in the dust if you were so inclined. -Marsha

Easy does it. I just did the first box today. We'll see if I do the next one (well, the third box) when Monday gets here. One day at a time.

Thanks for your positive comments on my blog. The more I define myself as a maintainer, the stronger I feel. Words from blogs can resonate and solidify my thoughts. They are powerful tools. All 3 of those people wrote excellent blogs. You have maintained for 5 years and I plan to follow in your footsteps!
