2019 ~ Thankful for SP and friends, for ongoing inspiration from leaders and team mates of 100 DWL and Beck studies, 5% Challenges, for good health and so many other blessings!

2018 ~ Continuing to move forward, balancing a healthy and fit lifestyle with staying present, thankful, positive with growing awareness that "knowledge is power. What we think and believe is more powerful than we realize".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2017~ Is all about Choices...My choices. I know I must continue Sparking and making those daily choices that I set in place in 2016 that help me to be as fit and healthy as possible to maintain my goal weight.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2016 ~ My goals this year are:
To slow down, be mindful when eating my food ~ focusing on plant based, whole foods, avoiding sugar and processed foods. . Add more steps to my day.

Keep challenging myself by taking classes in yoga teacher training, add more fun exercise with bike.riding,swimming...

I will try my best everyday to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. NO more beating myself up and NO more quitting...ever.

Member Since: 8/11/2010

Fitness Minutes: 184,965

My Goals:
"It's not the mountain we conquer,
But ourselves." unknown

Maintain between 147 to 152

May 14, 2013 I completed part 1 of a 3 part yoga teacher training program
2015~ Completed 2nd part of yoga teacher training
Earned CYI credential~ Certified yoga instructor
2016~Taking part 3 of yoga teacher training
2017~Continue teaching yoga and water aerobics

Reach out to others to encourage and be encouraged for success.

To get light enough, fit enough and strong enough to play tennis again!


My Program:
Most critical for maintenance is little to no sugar, white flour or processed foods. I do eat some but I start to crave them and to gain if I eat very much. I have free range eggs almost everyday. I get most of my fat from avocados, (lucky to have my own much of the year) olive or coconut oil. I eat as many veggies as possible and a lot of seasonal fruits.

I track steps and have a goal of 8-10K daily which I meet much of the time but no beating myself up when I do not.

I continue to give my body a rest from food 10 to 14 hours each night

Visit SP daily

Mostly plant based diet

Cultivate healthy life style habits like drinking enough water, less snacking and intuitive eating. Food Tracking when necessary for challenges or weight creep.

Exercise~Water aerobics, yoga, strength training, walking

    Thanks, Maria!

    The new yoga mat is very welcome. I don't eat meat, so turkey would be wasted on me!
    I'm in the UK, so we don't have Thanksgiving (I believe some of the Thanksgiving is about being liberated from British oppression - embarrassing!)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    and may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs. emoticon
