First of all I need to tell you I joined the 5% Spring Challenge again. It's a Race to Fascinating Places - 8 Weeks this Spring, if your interested in checking it out. You join a supportive team and have fun as you lose 5% of your weight, make new friends, and improve your health! I am on the Spirited Underdogs Team. It starts January 5th.
Here's a link if you are interested....just cut and paste
THE UNDERDAWG OATH
I do solemnly pledge:
that I will do my best to eat healthy and within my calorie range,
that I will exercise to the best of my ability,
that I will watch my portions and avoid mindless eating,
that I will avoid or limit unhealthy foods,
that I will try to get enough sleep,
that I will stretch myself out of my comfort zone,
that I will always try to make healthy choices even when stressed,
that if I slip, I will get back on track with the very next opportunity,
that I will keep a CAN DO attitude, or ask for Help,
and that I will support my fellow pack mates

Because I am an UnderDawg
And every UnderDawg has the heart of a hero.

I live in Washington State, Port Angeles to be exact. It's at the start of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and directly across the water from Victoria Canada. Beautiful place.

I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?

My family includes my husband, myself and a Pomchi. In the next week my youngest daughter and her 3 year old (Emma) are moving in. For how long it remains to be seen.

I have 3 daughters, as of Feb 2018 they all live on this side of the Puget Sound too now. I have 6 grandchildren, ages 26, 21, 8 and 6, 3, and 9 month old.

My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren again. We are the ones that moved away for 15 years. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, RENTALS moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Nine months to the day of the fire.

Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing to our goal weight and then keeping our weight off!!

    I hope you have an awesome week! Yesterday I had an epiphany; I was starting to walk back and forth because Bubba wouldn't walk and doesn't like me to leave him - I walked back to the house, grabbed my Push Mower and cleared another section! Not as many steps, but a great calorie burn. I did another section later in the day and wound up trimming tree branches that were hitting me in the head! Nice way to spend the day. I even found a Cedar sapling!
