Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am a strong T2 Diabetic with a host of additional medical issues. NO medical issue will stop me from living each day in the healthiest way possible.
Goals for 2017:
Take a few minutes each evening to plan the next day's food.
Use planning above to maintain a1c at or less than 7%.
Make my 6th year of weight training the best ever!
Smile and laugh as much as possible!!
And, as always, get my weight down to 200 lbs.
My goals are:
- Continue to build strength with personal training and exercise
- Keep carbs in target range
- Lose some weight (of course!)
I am following the SparkPeople diabetes plan for the most part. I drink at least 8-8 ozs. glasses of water per day. I say no to things that just aren't worth doing.
Some recent stats:
10/19/13 Ran 5k (58:29)
7/13/13 Ran 5k (67 min)
I am a huge science fiction fan: Star Wars, Star Trek, Aliens, Indiana Jones, The Mummy, Twilight Zone series, Michael Crichton books. I also like the Harry Potter series, Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings.

The only way to fail is to give up. Whatever comes, whatever happens, keep going.
Fix your eyes on the goal, and persist. Your vision, your commitment, and your actions will take you there.
When you can make great big strides, make them. When you can take only small steps, take them.
See every moment as the opportunity that it is. When the wind is at your back, keep going, and when the wind is blowing against you, keep going.
Make good and effective use of whatever you encounter. Tap into the positive value that is always there.
Know precisely where you wish to go and why. Keep going, and you are there.

"How would your life be different if . . . You were conscious about the food you ate, the people you surround yourself with, and the media you watch, listen to, or read? Let today be the day . . . You pay attention to what you feed your mind your body, and your life. Create a nourishing environment conducive to your growth and well-being today."

Crowd out poor health habits. Choose activity before TV. Eat 3 veggies first for each meal. You will crowd out the less healthy choices.

"If you can't fly, then run.
If you can't run, then walk.
If you can walk, then crawl.
But, whatever you do,
You have to keep moving forward."
