No More"Not Too Bad"--just EXCELLENCE (windy city cyndee)

Hello!

I am a teacher and writer living in Long Island, NY, but originally from Chicago (as you can tell from my nickname, maybe?) I joined in 2012 but was inactive until July 2014, so I'm really a newbie.

I'm over 50 but act like I'm about 15. No, not really, but I am willing to give uberfitness one more try! This time, it's a BEAST. I have literally been on WW for a year and gained six pounds. My activity level has not been high enough, but this time I intend to ...
Hello!

I am a teacher and writer living in Long Island, NY, but originally from Chicago (as you can tell from my nickname, maybe?) I joined in 2012 but was inactive until July 2014, so I'm really a newbie.

I'm over 50 but act like I'm about 15. No, not really, but I am willing to give uberfitness one more try! This time, it's a BEAST. I have literally been on WW for a year and gained six pounds. My activity level has not been high enough, but this time I intend to walk it off (plus diet sensibly using the SparkPeople diet). I have a slightly underactive thyroid but I don't intend to let that stop me from reaching my goals! I am totally inspired by the people I meet here who sometimes face incredible challenges and are so full of fire and determination to progress.

I just changed my page title to reflect the hard truth--"not too bad" doesn't work for me anymore! Excellence is the key--in nutrition, in fitness, in motivation, and in all things! Excellence is not perfection. It is, however, superb.

Woohoo - thanks for the "ruby slippers"! I know my husband would like it if I had them on for real :) Might have to go out and buy me some! Unfortunately, I don't do well in heels. They look great, but are so uncomfortable! I'm happiest in my sneakers :)

Hope your week is going great!

The walk in the rain was actually very nice. It was about 50, so pretty cold. We enjoyed how green and clean everything looked. Soon after we got home, we took our Sunday mineral bath. Made for a nice day. emoticon

My SP friend who I have been walking with saw my post and decided to do the same thing.

Good job on the treadmill.
