Oscar. Handsome and Proud!
Hi! I am a social worker working on the sunshine coast of British Columbia. This year, I will turn 50...I have always promised myself that when I turn 50 I will be in awesome shape.....time is running out. i have been stuck for about 10 years, at my current weight.
The definition of crazy is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Up until now, I have taken the crazy approach to weight loss. Time to do something different.
I would like to reach 166lbs by August, but that is too little time. I want to walk a mile per day, and have found this very difficult since my dog Oscar died in February. I want to get back into boxing (so much fun, I don't hit people though, can't do violence). I want to be healthier, more energetic, and with plenty of energy to spare for my grandbabies.
I joined this week, so I am keeping track of exercise and the foods I eat. I have already gained so much insight! i participated a 21 day vegan kickstart in Sept 2009 and for the most part, I have stuck with it. However, I did add in some fresh, wild, local salmon and once I enjoyed some local scallops. My current focus is low fat vegan eating...I bought a book about Callanetics, a non impact way to excercise, since I am waiting for knee surgery. Who knows, maybe I won't need surgery anymore by the time I get the call!
My name is Tammy. I am a social worker, and I live on the Sunshine Coast, in British Columbia, Canada. I am very blessed to be living here on the ocean with all this sunshine!
Oscar was my biggest fan and motivator. He passed away on February 20 and I fell apart. I haven't looked after myself since then. I ate myself silly. I can't bring myself to go for a walk. This week, I will start again.
