Slow and steady at -34!

This is going really well! I feel a little shocked that it is. I think it is because it has been a slow and steady progress which really feel easy. I admit the first 3 weeks felt painful and I really struggled, but with logging calories and stay present while making food choices I am amazed. Soooo happy to be fitting back into my closet. In some cases I am passing up some items. We only spent a week our two together and now I am moving on to a new wardrobe. This is very possible!!! Change is ...

SparkPoints: 10,196

Fitness Minutes: 3,600

My Goals:
Meet my goal weight and raise my fitness level.
Daily...

1) Be aware of the calories in...

2) Make an effort on calories out...

3) Drink all the water!

Weekly

Balance the week. If I fall off the wagon, then get up and get back on!

My Program:
Exercise 3-5 days a week. Rotate cardio... Walking, running swimming, biking, chasing children. Weights and yoga also.

Keep it fresh... try new activities each week.

Honestly my plan is really to be kind and loving to myself. I will not beat myself and I will take the slowest road possible to weight loss and good fitness.

Personal Information:
I am a very busy single parent. I have 2 wonderful daughters. I am dedicated to their helping them find their own purpose. I want to set a great healthful example for them! We are constantly on the go. I try to squeeze in workouts while they are participating in their activities. I am trying to keep a gym bag packed so I am always ready. Sitting on the sidelines is not an option!

Other Information:
My ipod is my workout buddy. I down load Podrunner music. It's free and excellent motivational fun music. I am working my way through Podrunner interval training. It is an excellent way to get back to running 5ks and 10ks. Usually once a week I do the lazy woman's workout. Ride a stationary bike with a book.

emoticon How wonderful to be celebrating your five year Sparkversary. Keep going. emoticon

Do watch the YOUTUBE series "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY" with Robert Lustig M.D. whose book "FAT CHANCE" comes out in December. It is so helpful.


I'm reading Richard Johnson M.D.'s book "THE SUGAR FIX" and have learned so much about Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance. He has a wonderful lecture on Youtube.
