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!

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: 142,604

Fitness Minutes: 138,005

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.

Praying that visit home continues to be a good thing.

Tried to put more in a Goodie but the computer wouldn't do it today
???? I try not to ask the computer why....as I get no results.

Thanks for the laugh. Maybe next year I will leave the scale at home. I plan on walking the Camino de Santiago. Hopefully I have lost the weight before then.

Hello Lindsay! It was good to hear from you on my blog "Pennsylvania". Yes, we are having a good time! I think we are adjusting to living in our "little home on wheels" now. Every day brings a new sight to see!

Blessings!

Lindsay thanks for your encouragement. I bought walking poles years ago and just never used them. It's supposed to be exercise for the arms too. Have a wonderful weekend. I hope you have great weather and can get outdoors.
