Hi everyone! I'm 51 and have an office job - at a CANDY COMPANY.
My weight and sedentary lifestyle are resulting in a lack of energy, heart problems, foot problems, and lack of social motivation, so I've decided that I need to get moving and modify my eating and exercise plans to feel better.
I also had minor heart surgery two years ago, so I need to start all over on the exercise plan. Slow and steady... I'll get there though.
- Lose weight spinning
- Tone up with strength training
- Keep flexible with yoga
- Drink plenty of water
- Increase consumption of grains
- Increase consumption of produce
- Decrease consumption of fat
- Decrease consumption of sugar
- Decrease consumption of processed foods
Drink tons of water, exercise a minimum of 45 minutes every day, but change it up and have fun with it. Lower fat, calories, sugar & processed food. Increase consumption of whole foods such as fruit, veggies & grains, getting enough sleep. Make time for ME - I need to relax too!
I'm from Northern New Jersey - lots of dairy and corn farms. Married to a great guy who does nothing around the house but is otherwise very cool. One daughter in St. Louis area, and a stepson in my town. Same company for 21 years. Conservative in some ways, but completely spontaneous and shockingly unusual in others.
I'm bored with my life. I do nothing other than work, take care of my home and address all the 'have tos'. I'm on a mission to get out there and have more fun. Being more fit will be the icing on the cake. It will allow me to be more active. I'm also planning a vacation somewhere in the caribbean to celebrate my 50th birthday, and I want to feel Ok about my body when I go.

I loved your response to BcBear's cry for help regarding her binge on cheese fries. You made a lot of terrific points and it was very encouraging.

thanks for the gift... the ray of sunshine is the best. Although right now I would LOVE that crisp September air. I am from Passaic county - Hawthorne actually. We went to the Belmar this past weekend and I actually let my fiancee take my picture.. something that is few and far between.
Don't let one day of not walking get you down. I just found spark today and have had an amazing day.

good morning! Thank you for adding me as your friend it was a nice wake up surprize.
I am going to come home today/or tomorrow and get back into a rythum that will really help me make more progress. Being on vactaion at someone else's house, I have very little to say on how the food will go. I have been making good choices, but they took me out to dinner and I consumed way more than I needed or would have eaten on my own. I do not go out to eat yet, as I am still to new to spark.
Have to run,
