My word of the year is Flourish. I will find success and flourish in all my efforts this year.

My Motto to lead me in to 2018. (Adapted from a magazine ad! - lol)
Cook Well
Eat Well
Move Well
Be Well

I have a new Trendsetter Happy Planner and have made a few custom pages to help me stay on track.

I'm starting my year participating in the Fed & Fit Project (Path B that is 90 days) and starts on the 8th of January. On the 18th I'll start a 6 week program with 100 Days of Real Food. I've also signed up for Diane Sanfilippo's 21 Day Sugar Detox. It starts on the 8th and runs for 28 days. I need this. I ate way too much sugar over the last couple months! lol

Here's a quick update on me for those that are interested....

Coming out of Maintenance mode to lose about 5 pounds. Probably more after the holidays!

I have been having trouble with my knees and it's put a damper on enjoying my physical activity and overall comfort even when sitting, sleeping and getting up out of a chair! But... I grimace and keep going. -- UPDATE: My self therapy is working and I'm having a lot less trouble with my knees. Still find it uncomfortable going up and down stairs but all else has improved immensely.

My food choices haven't changed much (thats a good thing) and I'm happy for that. Smoothie for breakfast M-F and lots of veggies and proteins and healthy fats throughout the day. I could forgot the sweets but that's always been a battle so I maintain the "all things in moderation" so I don't over do it. And I'm good with drinking lots of water.

I have renewed my membership at Planet Fitness and go there most days before work. Tennis as usual on Tuesdays and Thursdays will all help me with my fitness. When it's warm enough) Not to mention all the work I do in the yard...

Still gardening, in fact, I've been building, filling and planting a new garden. I'll share more soon. (Looking forward to spring planting).

I have a new job (started in June 2017) working for the management company/owners of 27 Johnny Carinos locations. Accounts Payable Specialist at the Restaurant Support Center. Loving it for many reasons.

I have 14 chickens. One is a rooster but is more timid than most of the others! lol Nellie has gone to a better place leaving Bosco but we couldn't leave him lonely so we got a new dog. They are best buddies! Dexter is his name. He's a mix but you can tell part is German Shepard.

Looking forward to meeting new Ninjas and rekindling friendships! Let's have a great BLC 36 and a fabulous 2018!

My Goals:
To continue improving me!

Keep up on my variety of fitness and non fitness activities.

Making Healthy Food Choices more often.

Build muscle and release my excess fat stores!

My Program:
Build strength by going to Planet Fitness most work days before I go to work. Focus on a different group of muscles each day and combine with the exercise bike. Stay physically active playing tennis a couple times a week and hiking when I can. When it's not too hot/cold or too wet I will walk at lunch. I spend a lot of time in the yard. I count strenuous yard work as fitness minutes! I can easily burn a weeks worth of intentional calories out on the weekend!

I will make healthy choices in my food (a majority of the time) & I will log my food and fitness from time to time to get back on track if the weight creeps up!

Just be happy and enjoy all the things I can accomplish.

Personal Information:
I'm the mom to two sweet dogs who drive me crazy! (Bosco and Dexter) I talk about them alot. Also a Chicken Farmer. My flock is currently 13 layers and 1 rooster! They are a blast! I plan to get a bunch! of babies by mail order in the Spring. I have been building a huge raised bed square foot garden. This winter I'll put together my old greenhouse (hopefully) and start lots of seeds in there for the Spring Garden.

I am an accountant for a national restaurant chain and love working very close to home!

I am an outdoors type and would rather be outside than inside.
