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

Hi there, great job on the miles! When I was 37 I did a 150 mile bike trek with the american lung associations, 50 miles a day, actually did it twice. We have a lot in common, riding (but I have slacked over the years), fishing, :)
