Just do it!

2019 is the Year of Me as I journey towards improved health and wellness. With a lackluster Q1, and a better Q2, it is still not too late to accomplish this goal.


Member Since: 9/23/2009

Fitness Minutes: 136,188

My Goals:
Live a healthy fit life, NEVER quit.

Though I have loved the 5% Challenges.....taking a break from them to try something new for rest of 2019

2014 Summer 5% Challenge Results:
(my best Challenge)

Weight: Lost 11#
Hips: Lost 2"
BMI 25.5 just short of goal to achieve healthy range of 25
WHR .72
Size: 12 (from sz 14)


My Program:
100 Days of Accountability, Ongoing Chapters

Plan "Can Do" list before the start of every day.

Find positives in every day.

Did many 5% Challenge Programs. They kept me actively engaged.

Exercise 5 days for 30 min; 2 days for 10 min

Eat a healthy balanced 1200 - 1555 calories daily. 5 of 7 days will be 1400 calories or less. Holidays, family events, vacation option: max daily calories=weight x 15 calories.
Snacks are healthy choices and if not, VERY limited
No eating past 7p.



Personal Information:
Happily married with 3 terrific grown boys, 4 lovely grandkids. Took an early retirement in 2009, which presented many new lifestyle changes. Have a bookkeeping business going that has me working much too much; watch 6 yr old granddaughter 2 days weekly and grand toddler the other 2 days....and still must make time for my client work, so I am very busy all of the time.


Other Information:
Enjoy time with family and friends, mini vacations, a little gardening, and when time permits reading. Recently got interested in watercolor after a class...haven't really found the time to continue this interest.

    Don’t forget to drink water and get some sun.
    You’re basically a houseplant with more complicated emotions.

    Summer Leaves
    Come walk with me on a summer day
    Up a logging road, a long, long way
    Summer leaves are all you can see
    So lovely and healthy and green as can be

    The grass and the ferns, the plants close to the ground
    The bushes and branches, the trees all around
    It’s all as green as you’ve ever seen
    Wonderfully, beautifully, brilliantly green

    The tall green treetops are ever so high
    Almost touching the bright blue sky
    Come walk with me in a summer breeze
    And find joy, like sunlight, shifting down through the trees

    Hey! It's summer! Be free and happy and danceful and uninhibited and now‑y!

    emoticon Flip Flop Wisdom emoticon
    Flip flops come in all shapes, colors and sizes.
    They are too busy having fun in the sun
    to waste time comparing themselves to others.

    ⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .
    Flip flops flop all the time
    but they never feel like a failure.

    ⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .
    Flip flops never let minor irritations like sand in their toes get in their way
    of enjoying a sunny day.

    ⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .
    May you flip flop though life with joy and kindness in your step.
    ⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .⋯ .
    emoticon emoticon
    Unlike swimsuits….
    Flip Flops fit year after year.
