Fitness Minutes: 10,762

My Goals:
Daily Goals:

Drink more water!

Get at least 7 hrs sleep!

Eat more healthy foods, but no food is off limits in moderation!

Aerobic exercise at least 30 mins every day - Walking on my breaks and 1/2 of my lunch hour adds up to an hour a day! (Done! 7/3/2014)

Weekly Goal:
Strength Training at least 3 times per week.

Short term:
Get under 200 lbs!
(Done! 3/16/14)

Next Goal - 195 lbs!

Long-term:
135 lbs, strong and healthy!

(My top weight was 230 lbs in March, 2011)

My Program:
It's not enough just eat healthy or to exercise regularly, to lose a significant amount of weight, you have to do BOTH consistently!

Personal Information:
I'm a divorced mom with one son who's going to FSU right now to get a degree in Chemistry! I musta done something right.

Now that's he's trying his wings and preparing to leave the nest it's time to focus on me again and figure out what this next part of my journey will entail. I know I will be happier and healthier when I lose weight so that's just what I'm doing.

I work on a computer all day long and then when I get home I write, again on a computer, so sitting all day is not helping. I like breaking my hour of daily walking up to get my blood flowing instead of sitting for hours at a time without moving. It seems to be helping. I'll add more intense exercise as I get fitter, but for now I'm content with my journey so far.

Other Information:
"Strength does not come from winning.

Your struggles develop your strength.

When you go through hardship and decide not to surrender, that is strength."

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation. You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

"The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."
-Karen Salmansohn

I made myself a snowball,
As perfect as could be,
I thought I'd keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.

I made it some pajamas,
And a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away,
But first - it wet the bed!
~Shel Silverstein

“You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. It's possible to treat yourself with outrageous kindness beginning today.
Compulsive eating is only the symptom; believing that you are not worth your own love is the problem.
Go for the love. You will never be sorry.”
-Geneen Roth

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
-Barbara Cage

LIFE LESSONS FROM A SNOWMAN
(Unknown)

It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy.
Hold your ground, even when the heat is on.
Wearing white is always appropriate.
Winter is the best of the four seasons.
It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection.
There's nothing better than a foul weather friend.
The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul.
It's not the size of the carrot, but the placement that counts.
We're all made up of mostly water.
You know you've made it when they write a song about you.
Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!
Avoid yellow snow. Don't get too much sun.
It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet.
It's fun to hang out in your front yard.
Always put your best foot forward.
There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.
