Shared Food Tracker
I'm 65 years young, have crummy joints from arthritis, but a super-positive attitude. I recently retired and I'm looking forward to the next phase of my life and being fit and healthy enough to enjoy every minute.
March 25/17 - to weigh 175 lbs by June 15/17.
- to weigh 160 lbs by August 15/17
- to weigh 145 lbs by September 30/17
Oct 1/15 - 31 days of fitness
Oct 1/15 - to lose 30 lbs by January 31/16
Oct 4/15 - to walk the Sun Run in April 2016 in 90 minutes.
Jan/13 My goals are get fit enough to make my knee replacement surgery a success. Then, I want to get fit enough to ride a bike again, do Zumba and feel fit and ready to enjoy the next phase of my life
Sept/13 New knee is a success, goal reached of being able to bike.
New goals: Increase my general fitness levels, including flexibility, strength and cardio. Keep moving towards my goal weight of 150 lbs. I'm only 15 lbs away!
March 25/17 - Eat whole foods in moderate quantities. No fad diets!
- Exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes p/day
I'm starting off by being more conscious of what I eat, both in terms of quality and quantity. I'm also doing a very moderate exercise program
Sept/13 Knee replacement surgery was a success, now I'm adding in 30 minutes p/day of cardio and strength exercise consistently. I'm also adding as many NEAT minutes as I can, taking stairs, walking to/from work. I track, track, track all of my food, every day. That is key to reaching my goals.
I live in Vancouver BC Canada with my husband and kitty's Max and Buddy. We love to walk, travel and are both avid photographers.
1. Exercise Program. 30 minutes per day of walking/cardio. 3 times per week of strength with handweights
2. Nutrition. Stay within my calorie range and track all of my food every day

"The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback...it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you."

"Time always moves forward whether you move forward or not. Your most effective strategy is to make use of each moment as soon as it arrives.
There's no end to what you can accomplish if you'll just go ahead and get going. Now is what you have, so make now your time to begin."
-- Ralph Marston
