"she's gonna get me this time! SCREAM til she stops at DQ!!" ~Scared Lipid

Are they really scared this time? or are they sitting back chuckling, all my clustery fat cells in their comfy...ummm...stomach bloofyness. Do they believe I'll exercise and make them scream? Do they believe I'll make one smart choice and reach for the dill pickle instead of the Whopper? Do they believe I might fit into a skirt again? NO! they don't feel threatened.

BUT THEY SHOULD! ~determined~ begs for help!

Member Since: 7/5/2011

Fitness Minutes: 170

My Goals:
to uncover my waistline and WEAR A SKIRT AGAIN, and pretty clothes

to seriously get in shape, lower my blood pressure, feel better physically, and begin to look forward to exercising.

My Program:
strength training 6 days a week, alternate upper/lower body

cardio, 45 min. a day, 6 days a week

interval training (alternate walk/run, mostly walking) 5 days a week, 1.2 mi. each walk.

diet- soups and salads, lots of water and uns. iced tea. Write down what I eat, religiously.

Personal Information:
I'm a widow/mom of two grown children and one, my son aged 12, still at home. Our family here at home these days is me, Mr. E., and our three pets, Kasha (chihuahua who thinks he's a cat. he needs to lose weight as badly as I do lol, that dog has eaten one too many tacos!), Shad (black cat), and Scout (orange tabby).

Other Information:
Crochet keeps me sane! :) I'm actively working at getting out amongst people more, and being less shy. This year we have 4 weekly commitments, (3 my son's, one mine) which do get me out and help me to interact again. I work from home. Love gardening, hiking, reading.

    Thank you for adding me as a friend and for reading my blog.
    Yes, it has been scary around here with all that has happened regarding the flood. If you have photos from before to compare to what has been happening, it is quite shocking! We are helping however we can and cleanup has started in some areas. Yes the mould will be terrible. I am told bleach will clean it/kill it, but who knows where it will be appearing. Very sad.
    I hope your ok, as is your family. I have never experienced a flood until this, I am thinking of you my friend. Thanks again.
    I will keep you posted, please do the same.

    Thanks for your comment on my picture. I am blessed with a loving family that did not find my being overweight as an issue. I made the decision to loose weight and they have not really acknowledged it very much. I have always been very athletic and active, so even when I was heavy I looked muscular. Loosing weight just exposed my muscular physique. I am very happy to have less weight to haul around, but the biggest difference in me is my healther eating. I was always dieting or starving myself and now I just eat in moderation. SP gave me more awareness and control over the empty calorie foods I was consuming.

    Good luck on your journey! emoticon
