It's A New Dawn, A New Day

I'm 32 and married. I live in Hollywood, Florida. I was diagnosed with diabetes in October 2011, and that was the huge wake-up call that gave me the strength to start making positive changes in my life.

SparkPoints: 5,058

Fitness Minutes: 3,571

My Goals:
Long-term:
1. Weigh 125 pounds - and then go from there to find my ideal weight.
2. Cook meals instead of eating frozen dinners, and use that to control sodium intake.
3. Control diabetes without medication, if possible.
4. The big one - learn to control my depression and anxiety so that I can decide whether or not to have children based on what I want rather than what I can do.

Short-term:
1. Cardio 60 minutes 5 times a week, and 30 minutes 1 time a week, with stretching.
2. Strength training 5 days a week.
3. Track my nutrition every day and stay within my ranges for total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.
4. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day.
5. Avoid fast food.
6. Avoid desserts until my birthday (May 5).
7. Write in my journal every day,
8. Blog every day.
9, Take my meds - including vitamins - every day, unless I drink alcohol.

My Program:
-Stationary recumbent bike (I have chronic arm pain, so most other cardio is out) - at home while I watch guilty pleasure TV shows :)

-Core and leg exercises

-Meticulously tracking what I eat, and bringing food with me when I go out if I won't know the nutritional value of what's available

-Active weekends with my husband - hiking, farmer's market, and dog beach.

Personal Information:
I live in Hollywood, Florida, but grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia. My two loves are my husband and my Havanese dog, Mila.

Other Information:
I chose my username to remind me that life will always have ups - I tend to twirl when I'm happy :) - and downs (tumbles).
