Project ME!!

My commitment for the Spring 5% Challenge 2012:
To exercise at least 20 minutes 5x/week.
No specific diet, but keep to lower processed carbs, and eat at least 5 fruits & vegetables every day.
To check in with SparkPeople at least 1x/day.
To weigh myself 1x/week.
Yay me!

I'm a 50-year-old wife and mother of three (17, 19 & 22), I have lived in 10 cities in the past 20 years, some overseas. I moved in August 2009 to The Hague (The Netherlands), and am ...

I'm a 50-year-old wife and mother of three (17, 19 & 22), I have lived in 10 cities in the past 20 years, some overseas. I moved in August 2009 to The Hague (The Netherlands), and am taking advantage of not working (yay!) to work on myself!

I'm a shorty at 5 feet 0 inches tall, which makes it hard to hide any extra weight. And to think I thought I was heavy when I was 18 and 120 pounds...

So am recommitting to the path of less emotional eating, more healthy eating, and regular exercise. And participating more consistently in the Sparkpeople community - it would be a shame not to make the most of this great resource!

Sometimes we all need some inspiration!

SparkPoints: 10,900

Fitness Minutes: 25,527

My Goals:
To lose at least 70 pounds (to get to 120), but given my petite stature and small bones, I might need to go lower.

To stop the emotional eating and eat healthy foods in a mindful way.

To exercise at least 5-6 times per week, including cardio (swimming, bicycling, walking) and weight training.

My Program:
No specific diet program, but just making better choices: more fruits and veggies, more protein, less refined carbs and white stuff.

Cardio: 20-40 minutes, 3 times/week.

Weight training: 30 - 60 minutes, 3 times/week.

For motivation, I'm always reading at least 5 weight loss/motivational books at any given moment.



Personal Information:
Currently living in The Hague, originally from New York, but have moved domestically and internationally many times in the past 20 years.

Oh, fun! - I think you'll enjoy the group and the challenge! It's great for those of us long time Sparkers who need that extra push. BTW, I don't do a lot of the extra-curricular stuff, just post on the chat thread for the Firecracker team, and of course the daily air miles log, and the weekly weigh-in. It is fun to see which team "lands" first each week. That might not make sense to you yet...lol

thanks vivian for your kind words. I am going thru the days knowing each day may get better. I know God has received my baby but it sure doesn't make it any easier. I guess i will find out about the saying that God does not give you more then you can handle. I am taking comfort from all the love i am getting and the loving words i heard from everyone that my son Justin had crossed paths with. I have to stay strong for my daughter who needs her mother as i need her and my husband who with me is heartbroken.
