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.

    We need to live boldly and go for what we want in life. Sometimes we'll fail. Sometimes life may seem unfair and won't make sense. Sometimes we have to accept what we can't change. And while life can be difficult, there is ALWAYS reason to be grateful and joyful. We are blessed with an Indomitable Spirit. Let it guide you towards your dreams.•¨¯`💕

    Persistence is often the deciding factor between those who fail and those who succeed. When we practice perseverance and persistence, we become more determined and relentless in our efforts, and therefore more courageous. We soon realize that mistakes and failure are temporary obstacles from which to learn and move forward, but it's only when we take direct action towards our goals that change happens.

    Celebrate your strengths in the face of adversity and Ho'omau... continue to persevere in your efforts.
    Never give up! •¨¯`💕
