Hello

I live in Cumbria (in the north-west of England). I love running in the hills and am an active member of the local church.

Hello

I live in Cumbria (in the north-west of England). I love running in the hills and am an active member of the local church.

I was really pleased to discover SparkPeople because it will help me to not only lose excess weight, but also do it in a healthy and, I hope, lasting manner. It's certainly a challenge, but then I like challenges!

I've just signed up to the Fall 5% Challenge. I'm still really struggling with keeping my calorie intake within my allotted range. My diet is generally very healthy but I eat too much of it! It is hard not to become disheartened, but I'm NOT giving up!

I will swim three times a week, strength train twice a week and run at least three times a week. I also do a weekly Pilates class and will make sure I stretch for at least five minutes every day.

My goals for the Fall 5% Challenge are:
1. stay within my daily calorie range
2. stay within my daily carb, fat, protein and fibre ranges
3. do at least an hour's exercise every day.
6. Log my LTGL points and 'air miles' each week, if not every day.
7. Post my weekly weigh-in result.
8. NOT read blogs, articles, play trivia, take part in forum thread discussions or games or any other Spark Point-obsessive activities unless I can Really spare the time!
9. Time freed by observing Point 8 to be put towards ensuring that I get at least 7.5 hours of sleep each night.
10. Focus on being positive about myself and my body (not an easy goal to achieve but a helpful one).

SparkPoints: 142,296

Fitness Minutes: 137,775

My Goals:
I want to be slim, fit into my 'slim' clothes comfortably, feel good about my body, not embarrassed by it and to be able to run faster. And I want to do all this in a healthy way that I can maintain. I also want to feel good about myself as a person, which I often don't at the moment.

I need to be kinder to myself and give myself the rest, sleep and healthy food my body requires instead of punishing myself all the time.

My Program:
I'm going to track all my food, stick within my calorie goals, and exercise and do strength training at least twice a week. I'm also making sure I stretch for 5 minutes a day.

Hello Lindsay! Thank you for reading and commenting on my "Catching Up" blog. Yes, we are surely covering lots of miles. We had clocked over 5,000 some time ago so I can only imagine how many we've traveled by now. We are enjoying it though!

God's blessings to you, my friend!

Good morning, Lindsay. You "choose happy" one little decision at a time, you make it a conscious thought, and banish the negative. You have to be aware of it, though. Conscious decisions, one at a time and eventually it gets easier, you develop better habits in taking care of yourself. --Pam

Hi Lindsay, thanks for stopping by my page the other day. (Sorry I am so late in getting back to you!) I am doing well and have been on track for seven days! I really hope to keep this streak going for a long time!

Hope you are having a very nice weekend. Still on vacation? That is nice that you got to visit your parents.

Have a healthy week!
Hugs,
Pixie
