Have just played with setting goals. Mostly have just been trying to be consistent, but that has not worked very well. I know that I do feel so much better when I exercise every day. Tracking my food intake is easy for me - I really do not eat that much - actually according to this site, I do not eat enough.
So.......have written out some goals for June.
Got the inspiration from Sparklerfriend (Suzanne). Thanks, Suzanne. I love your list!!
So, here is are mine for JUNE:
1. Track daily intake.
2. 30 Spark Points daily.
3. Do cardio - 6 times a week.
4. Strength exercise - 3 times a week.
5. Set up sewing space in bedroom.
6. Lose 3 lbs.
7. Continue reading and journaling "The Spark."
So, there it is in black and white.
Now to get it posted at home and at work.
Am also working on a collage as suggest in the book. That is a little harder for me.
Have found an old picture - now to get it scanned and added.

Have been a member for a while and have had the book for a couple of months. Started reading and was really focused for a while. And, then have just let things go. My excuse: I have been too busy. I am old now - 72 last Nov. - working parttime (30 hours a week) - have evening commitments 3 times a week. And, recently there have been additional activities at church that have taken time: our Spring Bazaar, our Grad Recognition Banquet, a funeral - and as the church secretary there are things I am responsible for. Sounds like a whiner!!
But, it is time to GET SERIOUS - if I am going to lose some of this weight. I know that when I eat better and exercise regularly I do feel so much better and have so much more energy and desire to do whatever God has planned for my day. And, I do not want to miss anything. Also, i have a daughter and her family here in Pendleton - 3 granddaughters, 16, 12 and 10 - and I do not spend enough time with them. More excuses!
Love this section of SparkPeople. Being able to read where others are is so encouraging - I don't feel like I am all alone and that others share the same struggles I have. And, being able to blog as I read thru the book.
So, that is my story!!

Oh, my goodness!! I have lost 4 pounds and 7 inches (waist, hips, and thigh.)
Did not realize I had lost that many inches - just had to go back to my diary and check again!!
And, yes, the figures are correct.
And, my stress level is almost ocean bottom level. Actually, I do not stress out easily. Guess that comes from my parents. They were so solid and secure. Guess that comes from living thru the depression.
Energy level wavers some. Last week I was so tired by evening - felt like God could just move me Home. Like "today would be a good day!!" So, got lots of extra sleep over the weekend. And, now feel like I can do another week. Also, the warm sunny days do boost my "get up and go". And, do get an evening out. Meeting a group for Mexican and then going to the community college for a play - "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." One of the youth in our church plays the lead - so that will make it extra special.
