On August 16, 2014 I reach a 70 pound weight loss and finished the Grind with my amazing husband by my side. I'm looking forward to new activities including Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing this winter. They say all journeys start with a single step, I couldn't agree more.

Fitness Minutes: 37,201

My Goals:
To not let my weight stop me from enjoying adventure. I love hiking and nature and want to get back into exploring.



My Program:
Meal planning.

Focus on cooking with fresh herbs from the garden and veggies from the farmers markets. No more pre-packaged quick meals.

Adding exercise and being accountable for the good and the bad.

Other Information:
Starting with a small 1KM I have worked up to 6 hour hikes involving climbing mountains and hiking along cliffs. It all starts with that single commitment of exercising 10 mins a day and having goals.

emoticon for your kind words on my blog. I agree that we need to start each day with a positive outlook, it is something I am working on every day. It is much easier with the support of people on SP. emoticon
