Hi Beverly, I was wondering where you were. I joined the Alabama team and am enjoying calorie reduction plan/aka Bev & Tim (I'm sure the low numbers won't fly with Sparkie. The mountain bike trail is great during this cold weather. I need to ride the road bike occasionally. Nothing like getting weighed for life insurance by a stranger on Tues. to jump start the program again. My scale weighed the same, so I reduced all incoming calories to a paltry few I could live with. I've baked (not eaten); biked to my hearts content and today I'm 7 lbs. lighter. I'm moving on with this program as I feel terrific! I dropped sugar, breadstuff and focus on veggies, high quality protein,fruits- lots of H2O. And I want December to by my key exercise month! How's that for goals?
WooHoo. I did well in November. Stayed on my nutrition program (except Thanksgiving Day) and got my exercise in almost every day. I did miss some of my work days. It is hard to work it in when you end up working 14 hours.
Now, for December. I am going to keep up my strict nutrition going, get my 30 minutes of exercise daily, and get at least an hour of family time every day. No TV, no computer, no video games, no cell phones. Just time re-connecting with each other.
I hope everyone has enjoyed our monthly resolutions. I still think they work better than yearly ones. But, it is time to start thinking about our big goals for next year and start breaking them down into monthly resolutions.
One Day at a Time: 1) walk/ride 30 minutes 2) try something new 3) 1 fruit/veg every meal 4) sew 1 bobbin full 5) do a good deed
May 2016 goals: 1) Lose 4 pounds 2) Ride 200 miles 3) Eat fruit or vegetable at every meal 4) Finish 2 UFOs
