Getting There - One Step At A Time...

This is my second try at Spark People. I quit a while back because I was no longer doing anything but going through the motions. During 2013 I lost the 5 pounds I gained in 2012, but still have a long way to go. I don't know if I will reach my goal in 2014, but I will consider the year a success if I end it at a lower weight. I didn't gain it overnight, and I don't plan to lose it overnight either.

SparkPoints: 70,484

Fitness Minutes: 39,272

My Goals:
My 2014 Goal is to lose 30 pounds.

My longer term goal is to lose 60 pounds.

I want to continue my exercise habits to improve my fitness level and stave off the heart disease and diabetes that run in my family.

My Program:
Tracking my food is the most important tool! Working out 3 times a week at the gym with 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training. Walking at least 2 days a week for 30 or more minutes. My diet is not a formal diet plan. It is to eat healthy and stay within my calorie range for the week.

Personal Information:
Originally from Parma, Ohio, have lived in New Jersey, and now in the Orlando Florida area. Married, no kids. I'm 61, and hoping that this year will see me slimmer and healthier!

Other Information:
I love to read, travel and go to the theater. I also enjoy walking outside, but try to do it early in the day before it gets too hot!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Artificial sugars are just as bad. It was Equal that killed my stomach bacteria in 1982 and Splenda which activated my autoimmune hepatitis in 2004. Our bodies do not recognize artificial foods and do not know what to do. So they either store it as fat, since they assume we know what we are eating, or assume that it is an invader and attacks the organ it sees it coming from. Or worse yet, it thinks it is something else and allows our cells to create cancer. Our bodies are trying to communicate and we are blocking the process.

Worry over the future breeds anxiety. Fretting over the past breeds depression. Both can stop our good movement forward and put us in front of the TV with a bad movie and too much of the stuff we don’t need to put into our bodies. That horrid cycle, of course, breeds regret and dread that brings us to more of the same. I believe that is called “insanity”.

Instead work to stay in the present taking the next step needed for living to the full the “now” that is before you, having learned better ways from past experience and pushing forward with hope that right action now will produce a better tomorrow. This is living life with power that produces a good outcome and protects our journey from wasting away.

Plan for the future, yes; but let the first plan be to live your best you in the now you have to possess.

Hi Patti
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! We are actually going to San Antonio in a few weeks for about 4 days and the Riverwalk is something I am really looking forward to! Is there anything else that you would recommend doing while we are there besides the obvious touristy things?
Thanks. Holly
