I am a long-time Sparker. And I am a long time 5% Challenger! I have been a Determined Daisy for a long time.

My word for 2018 is TRANSFORM. I want to continue my transformation to 155 weight, size 10. I want to transform my government to be FOR the PEOPLE and BY the PEOPLE--so I will be holding my elected representatives and their appointees accountable. I want to transform my immediate surroundings to be filled with LOVE--so I try to treat people with love.

My goal for 2018 is a theme--I want to look my best AND be active in our country's actions--so I will try to treat others with love and also be more active in pointing out good and bad in our country--and trying to make things better through contacting my government officials and calling them on things they need to be called on.

I am more toned than I was -- I am in size 10 instead of 14. I am going to get back down to 155 and STAYING there or lower. I will try to do no sugar/cookies/baked goods,/candy but that IS really hard for me. It is also hard to have just a little bit--so I need to try "cold turkey". I went skiing in Jan/Feb and fell--so couldn't exercise for most of Feb and March. Now I can power walk again so hope to get moving.

I am RE-COMMITTING to my health and well being!!

My Goals:
to get back to 155--or even lower

to start the process of downsizing--so it won't be "do it in 2 months" ( I have started--3 houses on our block sold so I hope someone will knock on the door to buy ours!)

to look and feel much younger than my years!

to motivate my husband to join me in exercising

My Program:
1 day week Les Mills Body Pump class or Y weight machines, 2 days week exercise in the pool, 1 day of another class, 1 day 5K distance walking (or running if I get back to it) and 7 days a walk with hubby in the evening (this will be restarted when it warms up again).

I am tracking my food and learning more about what to cook and how much! My "diet" is lots of veggies, protein and complex carbs!

Personal Information:
I live in NJ with my hubby of 38.5 years. I have 3 DDs.

I ran 2 5Ks in 2014--that was my goal and I met it! I don't plan to do too much more running but need to train--I am planning a run at Disney in Jan 2019--with DD1.

Other Information:
My 3 DDs live in CA, upstate NY and Michigan--and all 3 are settled for the next while!. We are trying to decide where we will end up--NJ is NOT our retirement state.
