Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
After a few years of on off losing/gaining...I have been consistent onSparkPeople for the past 3.5 weeks. It is so helpful, to post what I eat, track my exercise and stay motivated. The ease with which to do it, really keeps me motivated. I want to check and see how I am doing. The different reads and sites with the interaction of people is ever so helpful. I'm a little below goal in my calories, but it just happens when I seriously start losing weight and I compensate with extra vitamins. I think my stomach just sort gets smaller and says "I'm full". No Sugar, water, no oils/fats, dairy (for now), meats (for now)...veggies/fruits/grains/beans/seeds/n
uts... I feel full and able to maintain the energy for my exercises...as to keep firing all the spark plugs..., so that I can lose the weight.
Most of my adult life, I have been overweight and I look forward to winning the battle of the bulge and reclaiming an ideal weight for 5'3" tall. I'd feel healthier.
I plan to put SparkPages through a work-out and do it!
3 days of weight training: upper and lower.
3 days of Aerobic excercise: Biking, walking/hiking
Eating less calories: but with a plan and purpose. High protein: eggs, egg whites, fish, chicken, turkey, lots of green veggies, a fruit a day, less than whole milk and plenty of water.
I live 30 minutes from Birmingham, Ala. I'm from Florida. My husband is from Birmingham. We've been married a long time. We have 5 grown children and one grandson.
Proverbs: 3: 5&6 is one of my favorite verses, because I have always needed to be reminded of doing what it says.
I enjoy reading, sewing, and working out with friends. Cycling has become a wonderful past-time for me. Joy is Jesus, My family and friends and others, and me. Sometimes I can get it all backwards.

I did the Ridge a few days ago, twice. Just wanted to do where I could get out and back. Bike needs some attention and need to be where I can hike it back, if it goes out on me.

This morning we parked at the gate on Trammel Road and road over the berm and did Bill's Creek loop. It was beautiful and full of wild flowers. We saw no snakes, turtles, or bears, which is a good thing for me.

It is beautiful on the Pinhoti. We have been riding the forest service roads around Rocky Mount Church lately and it has been lovely.
