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'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 at least twice a week, strength train once or twice a week and run at least four times a week. I will make sure I stretch for at least five minutes five days a week.

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.

I didn't see any beavers that day that I took the picture. However, I've seen wild turkeys, foxes, snakes, and deer's on this 13 mile trial. I did see a beaver twice come to think about. It was just having a swim on a beautiful day.

Hi! Just read your query about "holiday shopping" and it really made me think. Here's my best answer: I do call it Christmas shopping sometimes, but in my mind I realize that I keep the shopping/presents/tree separate from Christ/savior/hallelujah. Interesting...I never realized that I did that.

Have a joyful Christmas holiday season! (Ha!)

"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."
