A recent 40-something wishing to be stronger, more flexible and have more stamina than I presently have. Looking for long-term, sustainable changes to hopefully carry me into old age.

Member Since: 3/7/2010

Fitness Minutes: 5,810

My Goals:
GOOD HEALTH is my very broad and ultimate goal.
EATING TO HUNGER and not beyond, to nourish and honor my body (some info about this here: http://life.familyeducation.com/foods/nutr
ition-and-diet/44294.html).
LETTING FOOD BE FOOD and not a cover-up, escape, punishment, comfort or anything else I might expect it to be that it can never live up to.

Releasing 31 kilos will bring me to the upper limit of "normal weight" BMI for me. However, I'm leaving myself open for that number to go up or down, depending on my health and overall well-being.
(Thanks to TRACYABELLE for the concept of "releasing" instead of "losing" weight!)


My Program:
LOGGING my nourishment and movement and looking at the FEEDBACK and LESSONS LEARNED from my choices. Taking on a NO JUDGMENT, NO FAILURE - IT'S ALL FEEDBACK approach. Looking with curiosity at my EMOTIONAL EATING patterns and STRENGTHENING my ALTERNATIVE COPING SKILLS to the challenges I face, big or small.



Personal Information:
Who am I? Well, a few words that might be said to define me... salsa dancing, friends, hiking, Sweden, Hawaii, Africa, ocean, beach, sun, warmth, nature, no TV, tea, cooking, fish, mango, travel, music, collages, movies, books, photography, conversation, writing, full-timer, commuter, bike, recycling, expat, family, nieces, fellowship, community, drivers license, no car, organic, dance, worship, thinker, deep, laughter, mindfulness...


Other Information:
My all time favorite movie is STEEL MAGNOLIAS. I laugh, I cry, I FEEL when I watch it. Every time. Even when I know exactly what's coming.

    Hallo Confuerza!
    It really gets easier, the second one is a bit of a breeze, but ME TIME remains somethng precious.
    Everybody alwayas told me to really enjoy it, and that is the best advise I can give you. Just really breathe this time with your baby in, enjoy it.
    It is the best fun ever.

    Hi! Confuerza,

    You left a comment on my page about a year ago, when I first joined. I just saw it while setting up my page.... I have mostly just used the food/fitness tracker application on my phone. I really have never browsed the site. So I wanted to say hi, and thank you!! Congratulations on your baby girl!! Have a nice day...Christina emoticon
