Fitness and well being are the effects of habits. I should know. I have lots of habits. Many of them are not particularly skillful. This takes time and patience and practice. I have plenty of time. Not too bad on patience. And the leisure to practice. Besides...this is fun.

My Goals:
Goal:
Lose 5 pounds.
And then lose 5 pounds. And then lose 2 pounds. And then celebrate!











My Program:
1. Eat in the Mediterranean style
2. Plan all meals and snacks and say No Choice to anything unplanned
3. Schedule shopping and meal prep. Be prepared. Make it a priority.
5. Eat sitting at the table.
6. Log fitness and track nutrients in Spark trackers
7. Use distractions to manage cravings.
8. Weigh every day
9. Read my list of reasons why I want to lose weight every day
10. Exercise every day

Personal Information:
I lost 30 pounds using Spark tools and kept most of it off though I never reached my desired goal. Recently I started to creep back up. So I looked up Cognitive Behavior and weight loss and up popped the "Beck Diet Solution". It is a perfect fit with the Spark tools and the Mediterranean plan. And I am having fun. Fun is very important to me. I live on Outer Cape Cod and part time in the hills of Western Massachusetts. I love being surrounded by natural beauty. I left a successful career protecting land and helping people appreciate and enjoy nature. Now my time is my own to pay attention to wellbeing and fitness when and how I wish. Luxury!

Other Information:
I love companion animals especially my current dog Lilly. My husband is plenty cool too and is supportive of my losing weight. I love the beach and my favorite exercise is swimming outdoors or walking on beautiful beaches with my pooch.

Hello my friend, thanks for stopping by my page and my blog recently. I am doing OK. I am finally felt brave enough to post a tiny weight loss and immediately slipped a bit and went up. Part of it is that I'm at that point where the scale always gets stuck and losing becomes a huge struggle. I'm not giving up though, I may slip up but I just have to focus and get back on track. It's not a fast way to lose weight but it will do.

In other news, the hubby and I are running a 5K on Sunday!

How're things with you?

I just got really emotional after reading your "inch by Inch, row by row" Took me back to Peter, Paul and Mary singing, "The Garden Song". "tune my body and my brain to the music of the land." Then my son walked up and said "gross hippies." and brought me back to my day. Hahaha, however I'm pretty sure I will sing that song in my head all day. emoticon
