Tricia's Healthier Life

Hi fellow Sparky. This is my second time recommitting with this website. I believe it helped last time and I decided I need every tool and every bit of support possible to make it through my goals. I am a mother and wife. I have five children (three biological and two step). I am approaching things differently this time because I realized that I get discouraged easily and need more motivators than last time.

Hi fellow Sparky. This is my second time recommitting with this website. I believe it helped last time and I decided I need every tool and every bit of support possible to make it through my goals. I am a mother and wife. I have five children (three biological and two step). I am approaching things differently this time because I realized that I get discouraged easily and need more motivators than last time. I have diabetes, hypothyroidism, borderline hypertension, PCOS and a Metabolic disorder. Losing weight is crucial to turning my health around.

I will be starting a Medical Weight Management Program in 20 days. I will start an 82 week program which includes a total liquid diet for the first five months (Optifast). From there I will transition back on to normal foods gradually, but will adopt the Eat Clean lifestyle (Tosca Reno). I have a Wii and have Wii Fit and Active 2 which I hope to use daily to get my body moving. Did I mention I've had motivation issues? I'm hoping that since the program I'm starting will allow me to lose weight very quickly (well in the beginning) that it will be the "jump start" that I need to get going on this lifelong lifestyle.

My Program:
1. Eat within my proper caloric range every day.
2.Chose healthy foods 80% of the time.
3. Become more physically active by walking and dancing. As my fitness levels improve, I will add more fun physical activities that I enjoy. I want this to be my new longterm lifestyle.
4. I would like to reward myself for every 10% of weight I lose.
5. I would like to meditate daily to rid stress and try Tai Chi as another form of relaxation.
6. I would like to eventually run around with my children, go on family hikes in the country, go geo-caching, learn to ski, learn how to kayak, and go out dancing with my husband.

Personal Information:
I live in California.
I enjoy cooking, reading, gardening (when I'm feeling healthier), walking in the country and spending time with my family. I also enjoy computer gaming.

Other Information:
There is a beautiful butterfly inside of all of us just waiting to emerge.
The butterfly, formed in a cocoon, wrapped tightly in the safe confines of its self. Changing, growing and developing into its new image. Preparing and strengthening for the outside world, rejuvenating; and when it has completed its development, it breaks free from the old, dead, brown shell it had spun around itself.
It spreads wide its wings,
bursting out into a new world, reaching for the seemingly endless sky,soaring to new heights, fluttering its fragile wings with an unseen strength...
Of confidence
Of grace
Of beauty
Ready to conquer life.
Let life begin. Spread your wings and fly!

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born October 2, you can be a little reckless, but that's why so many people want to be near you -- not so much so they can do as you do, but so that they can enjoy it in a vicarious sort of way. The truth is very few have what you have, a willingness to cut loose and do something simply to take a chance or provide yourself with enjoyment. To say you are brave is an understatement; indeed, to say you are foolhardy may also be somewhat true -- but you are careful never to endanger anyone else. Still, you must understand that those who love you want you to be safe, and there are times when you must honor that in your choice of endeavors.

You have a wickedly humorous streak, and you will poke fun at almost anything -- and in a way that raises eyebrows even as it conjures laughter. This behavior, however, thinly veils serious thought and feeling about those things in life that are most important to you.

Today’s Libra Horoscope: You can do something that others have not been able to do – though they boast a great deal more experience & so-called expertise.

Hope your day was wonderful!

It’s been more than a year since you read my blog entry, “Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Not Just Size 5”…I hope that the last year has brought you happiness and success in life. But above all, I hope that you have remembered how beautiful you are!

I have been out of town, and running late w/my birthday wishes, hope you had a wonderful birthday . . . here are some interesting facts about your birthday!!

Born Oct. 2, you rise each day with the highest expectations, and more often than not those expectations are fulfilled -- if only because, through the strength of your personality and outlook, you are able to make the best happen for yourself again and again. You do seem, at times, to have the Midas touch, and you can bet that others will be envious of your track record, but you are the first to acknowledge that such a success story is not solely the result of luck or timing, but it is mainly the product of good old-fashioned hard work. Of course, it is also true that you will never take no for an answer, and you are willing and able to ask for those things that most others are too shy to solicit directly.

You are likely to have what many people want -- whether it be tangible or ethereal -- but you are never covetous of what you call your own. Indeed, because you are so confident, you are able to share with those around you more than most, and you feel that what you give away will come back to you tenfold as a reward for your warm humanity and benevolence.

Hope your day was wonderful!
