My name is Barb. I am a wife, sailor, teacher, and cyclist. I live in Michigan and love being outdoors.Even though I am very active, I am overweight and borderline obese with a BMI of 29.65. I have been struggling with my weight ever since I hit 40. I want this year to be the year I get to my goal of 130 pounds.

My Goals:
My 12 Spark Commandments for Better Living:
1. Remember that love is the most important thing.
2. Be kind to everyone.
3. Don't gossip.
4. Laugh often.
5. Eat vegetables with every meal.
6. Always choose water.
7. Have a plan.
8. Avoid time wasters: watching TV, playing video games, aimlessly surfing the web.
9. Something is better than nothing (exercise, cleaning, saving money, etc.)
10. Don't eat off of someone else's plate.
11. Be mindful.
12. Do it NOW!

My Program:
Exercise Plan
Do 6 workouts per week. Of that 6 times, 3 must be strength training (Cathe STS). On cardio days, I'll do Zumba and cycling.

Food Plan
Shoot for 1200 calories, but no more than 1500.
Spend the weekend preparing portion-controlled meals for the week.

Why lose weight?
I want to be not just active but athletic.
I want to wear clothes that currently don't fit me.
I want to be in photographs with my family instead of hiding from the camera.

    Checking back has been a year! Aack. Hope you are well. I would like to hear how your school year has gone and is going. Bike riding? Tom bought us bicycles this summer and we took them to Bradenton, FL for a couple of weeks. Fun! I miss the beach. Contact me soon, or when you check back in. Many well wishes. --Angie

    I am on Spring Break. You? I have not been doing well on exercise really; eating lots of sugary foods. Yikes. But I am enjoying the semester and my students. I hope you are well. --Angie

    Lfe is an experiment. The more... the merrier!

    Being adventurous is one way of learning about ourselves and the world around us. Interrupting the everyday monotony by being open to new possibilities and people keeps our perspective on life, fresh. Take risks, use good judgement, listen to your gut and go for it when it feels right. Let's gift ourselves a life of dancing 'outside the box', while we still can.
