No More"Not Too Bad"--just EXCELLENCE

"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.

My Goals:
Want to lose 40 pounds, get fit, enjoy life, cook more, and generally be awesome as possible!


My Program:
I do the SparkPeople diet and love my FitBit. I've settled on 1150-1400 calories a day. Not doing a low-carb diet because very high protein isn't good for me, but I try to get the minimum recommended amount of carbs, protein, fat, and fiber every day. I try to do about 150-175 carbs and keep sodium under 2000.

I am doing 10k steps and want to increase. I also like yoga.

Personal Information:
I am a teacher and writer living in Long Island, NY.
Teams:
Azure Destinations BLC26
Grey Wolves BL Fall Fitness Frenzy (co-leader)

Other Information:
Likes: science fiction, poetry, computers, walking for walking's sake, WORLD OF WARCRAFT (I love it, but am not very good at it. Am not crazy about the new expansion, so far). UPDATE: The new expansion is actually awesome. haha! Took about a day to love it. GARRISONS!

Sending you some comical quotes to think about......hope they make you smile

“I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that weren’t in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets.” ~Dolly Parton

“Can it be a mistake that ‘STRESSED’ is ‘DESSERTS’ spelled backwards?” ~Unknown

“Forget love… I’d rather fall in chocolate!” ~Unknown

“When I buy cookies I eat just four and throw the rest away. But first I spray them with Raid so I won’t dig them out of the garbage later. Be careful, though, because that Raid really doesn’t taste that bad.” ~Janette Barber

“I bought a talking refrigerator that said “Oink” every time I opened the door. It made me hungry for pork chops.” ~Marie Mott

“A dog is one of the remaining reasons why some people can be persuaded to go for a walk.” ~O.A. Battista

“If your dog is fat, you’re not getting enough exercise.” ~Unknown

..........."Lets Take a Moment to Be Thankful""..........

For every accident that never happened,
For every grave illness that was not caught,
For every tornado that never formed.
And for every mean word withheld when we fought,

We can only see what's in front of us,
And can be thankful for what we've got,

But to really, truly embrace gratitude,
We have to also remember,
To always be thankful,
For every "never", "didn't", and "not".....

Merry Christmas Cyndee,

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
What shall I wish you for Christmas?
This season of joy and delight
The sound of carolers
On a starlit night?

What can I wish you for Christmas?
What is the thing you desire?
Is it health, wealth, or happiness
Or the warmth of a Christmas fire?
What can I wish you for Christmas?

To give you all the joy I am able?
A merry time with a good true friends
Around the fare of a Christmas table?
So much I would wish you for Christmas
Yet only my greeting I send
For all that I have to offer
Is the sincere heart of a friend...

With every good wish..
For the Christmas season
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MY FRIEND
