I will be 51 on October 12th, and my goal is to lose 15 lbs by then. It may seem unreasonable to some (or most), but that is what I would like. I would be happy with 10 lbs lost, but my ultimate goal is 15 lbs.
Although the ticker on the bottom of my screen does not show it, I had crept all the way up to 200 lbs this summer. I was not happy and did not feel well. Then I decided to do something about it. I am now back to walking most mornings and swinging my kettlebell again. I forgot how good it made me feel!! I am now back down to 194, but still have a ways to go.
I can do it.

Yesterday was the kids' first full day of summer vacation, so I took them and a couple of friends to the beach for the day! They had a great time, and laughed and had fun and played hard!
Today, we head back to the cottage for a week of rest and relaxation with my side of the family. I can't wait to get there!

I am seriously frustrated! I have my Spark Activity Tracker and have been mostly hell-bent on getting my 10,00+ steps. I have started, albeit slowly, the jogging/walking program, and I try to watch what I eat!
I know this last one is the problem, because no one at MY house wants to eat healthier food. I have one child that normally eats pretty well, but the other is VERY picky, and my husband "doesn't do vegetables". I refuse to make 3 or 4 separate meals every time it is meal time! There have been a couple of times when I have become quite cranky and told them all to get their own meal, but I hate coming off like I don't care about my 9 and 10 year-olds, nor their father!
How does everyone else do it? I can't make everyone happy, and I REALLY want to lose weight!

Every day I listen to my kids complain about being bored. They have bikes, scooters, SHOES, LEGS, IMAGINATIONS, but they are bored!
I have offered them jobs to do, but they don't want to do those. One is on the X-Box (again). The blackflies would carry you away if you stayed still too long! I can sort of understand why they don't want to be outside, but I am heading out for a bike ride, so they may want to join me. Who knows!?
Talk to you all soon!

I joined the Walk/Jog a 5K plan. I know, I am more of an avid walker, but everything and a lot of people swear by running, so I thought I would give it a shot. I am still on my first week of this new plan, so not a lot different from my walking plan.
I get shin splints though! And only in my left leg! The right leg feels strong. Don't get it -- am I favouring my right leg and pounding more on my left? Both go with me, so you would think both would be equally strong!
