Once more looking ahead to the coming year. . .where do I need improvement?? It is harder than it sounds to make time for your own health needs -- everyone else always seems to need something (your time, your attention, your energy). But NOT this year -- ok, NOT so much, this year.
Going to try a different mind-set and treat myself as if I were a friend, not just 'me'. a)Things I would never say to a friend, I will not tell myself; b) I will make the time to be helpful and supportive with my goals - the same as I would a friend; c) I will make the time to walk with my friend.
These might seem like small things, but I believe it will be a step in the right direction.

Member Since: 3/25/2013

Fitness Minutes: 14,550

My Goals:
My first goal is to master an eating program I can live with -- if there is no chocolate, why bother?!
Time to write down the menu plans that pop up on the nutrition page -- get some favorites going.

My Program:
I have:
-- joined SparkPeople to get realistic ideas - things that work for real people
-- made a SparkPage to get, and give, encouragement and support (maybe even post a photo or two. . . maybe)
-- learn to care for the Fitbit as much as the Spark pedometer (I really miss it -- loved to watch it light up)

Personal Information:
Married to someone who loves to cook, and I have been an appreciative eater -- yikes!
Has dawned on me that I am alone in the house for this journey toward healthful eating -- I will depend on my Spark family for support.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
