Hi...I am a 48 year-old divorced, single mother of a teen and a young adult. I live in Salem, Oregon. I put in a lot of work hours, and over the years, have spent a lot of time running my kids around, so I'm setting up a plan to incorporate more exercise into my busy days, and looking for a way to fit healthy eating into the equation also. My goal is to find that place of moderation where I can change my eating habits in a way that I can stick with long term, instead of short-term stints of "deprivation" that don't work for me in the long run. While I respect and admire those who can eat mostly fruits, vegetables, lean meats and grains, I have not had success for very long without food that I innately enjoy. I am working hard to increase my vegetable intake, and my fruit smoothies help with the fruit!

I have been up with my weight, down with my weight, and now back up :(

Several years ago, I had worked up to an exceptional level of fitness. At 40, I was the fittest I had ever been. I was training to do my first triathlon, and was injured in two different places, and had to rest. I allowed that hiccup to derail me to this day.

I like to walk and strength train. I enjoy playing tennis. For other fun, I enjoy watching football, baseball and my reality show favorites like Survivor, Biggest Loser, DWTS, Amazing race, etc. I also love to read...wish I could master it on the treadmill without getting off balance!! I do listen to audiobooks while I exercise and find that very rewarding.

    Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

    “When we feel good about ourselves & embrace our talents & resources, we have taken the first steps toward realizing our full potential.” ~ Gillian Stokes

    “You must rise above present discouragement & keep driving steadily & cheerfully forward, as all great persons have had to do.” ~ Dorothea Kopplin

    “Flatter me, & I may not believe you.
    Criticize me, & I may not like you.
    Ignore me, & I may not forgive you.
    Encourage me, & I may not forget you.” ~ William Arthur Ward

    Hi Francis, being a former cop I've arrested a few for getting "juiced" as the term had other connotations - LOL. How times have changed.

    My dogs are a great joy and both have been rescued from bad situations. I was a K-9 officer on a PD and have grown to love G. sheppards.

    I will take your advice and look into ypur juice team, Earl emoticon

    Hi Frances! So good to hear from you! I am back. Glad to see you're still you're still working towards your goals. emoticon Unfortunately, I didn't get any feedback from my SparkCoach post. Have you heard anything?

    Beth

    Btw, just reread your previous post on my page from over 2 years ago. I love Adriana Trigiani. I've read most of her books. What are you reading now? I'm currently reading the newest from Jennifer Weiner.
