My goal is to lose about 90 lbs and get healthy. I want to be able to play my grandkids for longer than a few minutes at a time. And I also want to be able to move comfortable and not have pain in my ankles and knees any more.
Keeping in my calorie range and trying to lose 1-2 lbs a week. Cardio at least 5 days a week. usually on the wii. occasionaly the treadmill and swimming (at least in the summer time) Strength training. Do at least 10 min 3 times a week. This is real important, I don't want saggy skin and I want to be strong.
I'm 5 0 with 4 kids and 9 grandkids. I live in Oregon. I run a home day care. In my spare time (what little there is) I love to quilt and read.
"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice. The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING. Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE." -Lorna Jane
Hey Sparkfriend, I hope your week is going great so far. Make the most of each day as it comes, and choose to be amazing! Put forth your best effort....because you are worth it! Hugs, Pixie
"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come." -Og Mandino
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are! Hugs, Pixie
"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life." -Tom Venuto
Its up to you to make your goals and dreams a reality, Sparkfriend! Take responsibility, and do your best each day to make progress. You are totally worth the effort, you know! I hope your week has been great so far! Hugs, Pixie
"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out. We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive! Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories." -Rae Smith
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy, happy week, Spark friend! Keep your goals in mind and keep pushing yourself every day to get closer. It isn't easy, but never forget that you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
