Just do it!

Correction: 2021 is the Year of Me. Still working on my 2020 goal.
I have shed 20# and 15 inches and am at pre-pandemic weight and getting closer to my 2020 goal. No magic: "just do it!"

2020 is the Year of Me as I journey towards improved health and wellness. With a great Q1, Q2 & Q3 were overshadowed by stress eating from the pandemic. I am determined to finish Q4 strong, from my commitment and actions and Spark support and the Fall 5% Challenge. Q4 was a disappointment. Just started Winter 5% Challenge. Week 1: Lost 5#. My resolve feels strong. I WILL do this!


Member Since: 9/23/2009

Fitness Minutes: 151,252

My Goals:
Live a healthy fit life, NEVER quit.

Though I have loved the 5% Challenges.....my break from them is O-V-E-R

2014 Summer 5% Challenge Results:
(my best Challenge)

Weight: Lost 11#
Hips: Lost 2"
BMI 25.5 just short of goal to achieve healthy range of 25
WHR .72
Size: 12 (from sz 14)


My Program:
100 Days of Accountability, Ongoing Chapters

Make good with actions for progress on Program

Reflect on the positives and blessings in every day.

5% Challenge Programs. They keep me actively engaged.

Exercise 5 days for 30 min; 2 days for 10 min

Eat a healthy balanced 1200 - 1555 calories daily. 5 of 7 days will be 1100 calories or less. Holidays, family events, vacation option: max daily calories=weight x 15 calories.
Snacks are healthy choices and if not, VERY limited
No eating past 7p.



Personal Information:
Happily married with 3 terrific grown boys, 4 lovely grandkids. Took an early retirement in 2009, which presented many new lifestyle changes. Have a bookkeeping business going that has me working much too much; watch 6 yr old granddaughter 2 days weekly and grand toddler the same 2 days....and still must make time for my client work, so I am very busy all of the time.


Other Information:
Enjoy time with family and friends, mini vacations, a little gardening, online jigsaw puzzles, and when time permits reading. Recently got interested in watercolor after a class...haven't really found the time to continue this interest.

    Each person is like
    A butterfly in the wind,
    Some can fly higher than others;
    but each one flies the best it can.
    So why compare one against the other?

    Each one is unique!
    Each one is special!
    Each one is beautiful!

    emoticon ..............Never forget:.............. emoticon
    How far you've come. Everything you have gotten through.
    All the times you have pushed on even when you felt you couldn't.
    All the mornings you got out of bed, no matter how hard it was.
    All the times you wanted to give up but you got through another day.
    Never forget how much strength you have learned and developed,
    don't take for granted the strength you possess, Keep going...
