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!

Fitness Minutes: 151,449

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

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.

    “You were born with potential.
    You were born with goodness and trust.
    You were born with ideals and dreams.
    You were born with greatness.
    You were born with wings.
    You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
    You have wings.
    Learn to use them and fly.”

    You are made of star stuff.
    You are a supernova descendant.
    Those distant sparking orbs are your cousins and you inherited from them the ability to shine in the midst of dark times.
    Be the star that you are.
    SHINE BRIGHTLY.
    Don't let anything or anyone dim your inherited and inherent inner light.
