Sept 2020. Day was great; my weight did not stop me from anything. But I really hate the photos.

My SparkBio has been the same for a very long time. Blagh Blagh Blagh about wanting to be strong and look healthy and ALL OF THAT IS STILL TRUE. I'll leave it all at the bottom here for posterity. But right now it IS about weight loss, and I'm not going to feel guilty about that. I've had success in the past when I had a good reason for weight loss. I have all sorts of very specific good reasons now that have a lot more pressing concern than "general overall health and fitness." It's almost summer again, ya'll. Let's drop a few pounds and set some good habits and then worry about the "lifestyle" part and the platitudes later, ok?

2009 or so?
I want to be hooked on cardio. I want to be strong. I want to be able to use my body in all of the ways for which it was intended, because it''s an awfully big world and we all have so very little time. I want to show my daughter by example that our bodies are made to move. I would love for fitness to show on the outside, but this isn't primarily about weight loss. This isn't a diet for me. There is no finish line.

My Goals:
To reset my metabolism / have more energy / be able to get around in the world better and without pain.

To be strong.

To learn to love running.

To reach and maintain at 175 or below.

To run an entire 5K.

To hike Machu Picchu.

My Program:
I'm trying a restricted diet - don't come for me. It worked before and I felt awesome and not crappy so I'm doing it again.

Very low sodium, 5-6 small meals of lean protein, lots of veggies, low glycemic index carbs. It's not a lot of calories, but I don't feel hungry and I eat more before a workout.

Personal Information:
I'm a low-key progressive hippie witch living incognito. I live with my partner, my teenage daughter, and our hound dog. We have two grown sons and a daughter in-law in the area.

I crochet and I'm trying cross-stitch for the first time, he paints, I harass the daughter to pick a college and the boys to visit more. We try to be allies and good stewards.
