My name is Barb. I am a wife, sailor, teacher, and cyclist. I live in Michigan and love being outdoors. This year on 11.7.15, I will turn 50. 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 2015 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. Be quiet.
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.




Other Information:
�Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.� - Mark Twain

BELIEVE that you can run (walk, bike, row, swim, etc.) farther or faster.
BELIEVE that you are young enough, old enough, strong enough, and
so on to accomplish EVERYTHING you want to do.
Don't let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond your SELF.
-John Bingham

BELIEVE in your capabilities and turn those tiny sparks of possibilities
into FLAMES of achievement, because you CAN! emoticon emoticon

We ask ourselves,
'Who am I to be BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?'
Actually, WHO are you NOT to BE? ... We are all meant to Shine...
And as we let our own light Shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same. -Marianne Williamson

Have a SParkling week.
Bring your Light wherever you go... and S H I N E !! emoticon
