My name is Barb. I am a wife, sailor, teacher, and cyclist. I live in Michigan and love being outdoors.Even though I am very active, I am overweight and borderline obese with a BMI of 29.65. I have been struggling with my weight ever since I hit 40. I want this year to be the year I get to my goal of 130 pounds.

My Goals:
My 12 Spark Commandments for Better Living:
1. Remember that love is the most important thing.
2. Be kind to everyone.
3. Don't gossip.
4. Laugh often.
5. Eat vegetables with every meal.
6. Always choose water.
7. Have a plan.
8. Avoid time wasters: watching TV, playing video games, aimlessly surfing the web.
9. Something is better than nothing (exercise, cleaning, saving money, etc.)
10. Don't eat off of someone else's plate.
11. Be mindful.
12. Do it NOW!

My Program:
Exercise Plan
Do 6 workouts per week. Of that 6 times, 3 must be strength training (Cathe STS). On cardio days, I'll do Zumba and cycling.

Food Plan
Shoot for 1200 calories, but no more than 1500.
Spend the weekend preparing portion-controlled meals for the week.

Why lose weight?
I want to be not just active but athletic.
I want to wear clothes that currently don't fit me.
I want to be in photographs with my family instead of hiding from the camera.

    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. - Will Rogers

    To become and maintain success calls for the willingness to work hard, a bit of luck and an unending desire to improve upon ourselves. It's a bumpy ride but don't lose sight on where you want to be or the person you know you're meant to become. Stay the course, keep moving forward and you will get there. Have an excellent week and live your best life... hugs! •¨¯`💕

    It is in the moments of decision that our destiny is shaped.- A. Robbins

    Life is filled with decisions and often times the difficult ones involve change. And although change can mean leaving our comfort zone and finding solutions to our problems so we can move forward in continual growth... it can make for learning who we are and what we're made of, one heck of an interesting and inspiring journey. Trust in the process. Embrace this part of life, and life will embrace you back•¨¯`💕

    One of the most valuable principles we can learn is to take time out for ourselves
    so we can keep in touch with who we are. Living your life in service to others is
    commendable but even those who live in this manner must delegate time to
    themselves regularly. If you find yourself having less time to put your own thoughts
    together, then you need to make a habit of nurturing yourself and your life as well.

    Have a healthy, fun and re-energizing weekend.•¨¯`💕

    I just wanted to pop in and say I am happy to hear that things are going well for your DH after the triple bypass. We miss having you on the team as well but know that you are doing exactly what you should be doing. Take comfort in knowing we are thinking of you and will welcome you back with open arms whenever DH is well enough for you to focus on your personal lifestyle changes again.
