what reasons do I need

�If it is to be, it is up to me." author unknown

"Fall seven times, get up eight.� - Japanese Proverb

Member Since: 1/21/2009

Fitness Minutes: 59,348

My Goals:
I want to be around as my kids in their adult life. I want to feel comfortable in my clothes. I want to get rid of any health risks my weight may bring on.

My Program:
1. Track calories at least 5 of 7 days--works for me when I remember to do--that is why it is number one
2. Healthy fluids-tea and water- 64 oz a day--usually pretty easy for me
3. 5 fruits and veggies a day--love them but don't always do
4. 10,000 steps a day at least 5 of 7 days--walk dog if weather permits, get up and walk more at work and lunch
5. stop mindless TV, electronics--work on declutter and paperwork instead
6. strength training--has been on my list awhile and my least successful--I asked for weights for Christmas- I will do this. I keep telling my self muscle burns more calories

Personal Information:
I have 2 kids-24 and 20 (grad school and college). 5 cats and 1 dog. My husband is a minister. My mom has dementia. I still have her in her own home (even though she doesn't think so). So I go over there every night and 3 times a day on weekends. Someone stays with her during day during the week.
I am turning 60 in a week. That scares me health wise. So far overall I am doing well but I need to be healthier to increase the odds I will stay relatively healthy.

Other Information:
I enjoy kids-my own and others. I am a pediatrician. Working with kids, we all know we need to practice what we preach. So I need to eat healthier and exercise. Obesity is one of the biggest changes I have seen in over 30 years of practice--huge increase in overweight toddlers, children and teenagers .

    emoticon For stopping by my sparkpage. This Ohio weather has got me confused to say the least. Were expecting an inch of snow by tomorrow morning and rain this evening. Which has made it difficult to finish up our moving. Enjoy your day and step goal day lets get these steps in. emoticon
