Where am I?

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

I am here at Sparkpeople, engaged, involved and learning how to handle stress and disappointment without food. I have been successful at weight loss before and have gained it back every time because I never really figured out the why of it. I carry guilt and anxiety around with me that I feed instead of feel. I am feeling very sure of myself now. I am learning to speak up when I need to and to stay out of it when I need to. My children's problems are not mine. I can't fix things for everyone. I can only be responsible for myself. My eating has greatly improved, now I need to work on moving, moving, moving!

I am able to go 30 min. on the elliptical at 2-3
I drink over 8 glasses of water per day
I eat 4-5 servings of fruits/vegetables daily
I am keeping my sodium around 2000

My goals are to go 45 min on the elliptical at a 4-5
to eat 6-7 fruits/vegs daily
get sodium down to 1500 by eating whole clean foods
to try new ways to get fitness into my day (jogging???)
to continue getting stronger both emotionally and physically!
