2020 has been quite the year for challenges! But I'm tired of this year controlling me and putting setbacks. Last October 2019 I made some healthy lifestyle changes and they carried me well into March when lockdown started. Tomorrow starts October 2020 and I'm going to take control and get back on track! Enough lockdown! I'm going to make forward steps, one at a time! Here's to 2020 4th quarter of opportunity! My October 2020 Goals! 1. Going to walk 3 days a week. Already started this last week! 2. Log all my food intake! 3. Eat more low carb/keto based meals. 4. Reduce anxiety - this has been rough the past 6 months, need to practice more relaxation techniques. 5. Get better sleep!

Member Since: 4/9/2012

Fitness Minutes: 48,789

My Goals:
To be healthier and feel better about myself.

Short-term goals:
1. To drink 8 glasses of water a day. Update - I do this almost everyday, about 95% of the time.
2. To make fitness part of my regular routine. Update - I need to focus on this more over the winter months, once snow hit I've slacked. 2014 Update - I still struggle with getting fitness a priority. Despite the struggle I will keep trying!
3. To be more conscious of what I eat each day. Update - even when I've been offline for a while I still was very much aware of what and how much I was eating. I have the awareness now! 2014 Update - I'm very aware of what I eat and when I just need to do better planning with home cooked meals and less eating on the go. 2017 Update - joined Planet Fitness so now there is NO EXCUSE!

Long-term goal:
To lose 100 pounds and be healthier and feel comfortable in my body. Update - I've was down 33 pounds by Sept-12 but I've gained a couple back over winter currently down 31 - gett


My Program:
I am working my program by drinking my water, tracking my nutrition, and tracking my fitness through Spark People. I rely on this program as it helps me feel more accountable for my successes and setbacks.



Personal Information:
My name is Sherri. I am 49 years old and married to a wonderful man who is much more active and healthier than I. I have two grown children and three grandbabies that are the spark in my life.

I've always had weight issues as far back as I can remember. I've tried many things over the years to lose weight and have had some success. But since I turned 40 my battle seems to have become much harder. I love keeping busy and doing things with my family, but have found something much harder to participate in with the extra weight.

I want to enjoy life and be happy in my body. This time it WILL work!


Other Information:
Live each day to the fullest, and take time to enjoy the simple things in life!
