Background info: Usually I am at the top of my healthy weight range, and tend to yo-yo back and forth across the boundary between overweight and normal BMI. I am really sick of doing this cycle!

Basically, I would prefer to be at the bottom or solidly maintaining in the middle of my healthy weight range, without going into the overweight category! and hopefully get more toned along the way.

I'm learning to track my calories religiously, and stick to a bare minimum exercise routine. And I'll still keep looking to SP and members for inspiration and support!

I'm gonna get rid of this pudge!

Fitness Minutes: 75

My Goals:
To be a healthier person. To aim to be the best version of ME that I can be.

I love and respect food, and so have to practice exercising moderation and portion control...and impulse control.

My Program:
150 minutes of moderate to intense exercise a week.

Walk, walk, walk. Basically I try to walk everywhere possible. I take long walks for relaxation and enjoyment. I sometimes go out of my way to walk extra to destinations. I might go on slow "digestion walks" during my lunch breaks. Occasionally I go long-walking to get a breath of fresh air and to de-stress...

I try not to lead such a sedentary lifestyle!

- Go for a quick jog and a long walk instead of watching TV.
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.
- Get off the train one stop farther away and walk extra to destination.

I started to jog a mile around my neighborhood a couple times a week. Working to increase the length of time and speed at which I can jog.

Engage in gym streaks every now and then.

Finally: stay within range on the calories Sparkpeople recommends.
!!! This is so hard !!!

Personal Information:
I used to live in pedestrian friendly NYC, which made it easy and convenient to walk around! And fun to people watch on the way to places.

Now that I've moved to tiny rural city, I need a car to get around. I have to work hard to add walking to my routine.

My major gripe is that most US suburbs are built for cars, without town services and centers that are easy to walk it becomes harder to incorporate walking into your routine.

Other Information:
All the little changes add up to make a powerful difference!

    Hola :o)

    Thanks for the blog support :o) It's so true about it being harder to give up sugar when surrounded by it!! I mean really, at my uni I'm faced with a solid row of krispy kreme, starbucks, pastry shops, and millies cookies!! I live in the sticks now so after I'm done with school, that's when the challenge restarts! Why make it harder on myself right ;o)

    Baby steps all the way for sure, and after this week I'm learning I need to apply this to every area of my life! Life lessons really kick your butt sometimes :o)

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
