Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My weight has always been a problem for me and I am down right sick of it. I feel better when I take care of myself so why wouldn't I do that all the time? I'm tired of poisoning myself and suffocating myself with unhealthy food and an unhealthy weight. The time to end this is now! No excuses!
1. Lower my BMI to a healthy weight (per doctor's orders) by December of 2014 by eating a balanced diet consisting of Lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, and by keeping a consistent fitness program - burning 2,100 calories a week from exercising.
2. Lose the first 10% of my overall weight (19 lbs) by June 11, 2014 by eating a balanced diet consisting of Lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, and by keeping a consistent fitness program - burning 2,100 calories a week from exercising.
3. Run 3 miles in less than 30 minutes by January 2015. I will work toward this slowly by allowing my body to rest when it needs to and by pushing myself to take extra steps.
Short-Term Action Steps
1. Log on to Spark People every day
2. Drink 64 oz of water everyday.
3. Eat 5 fruits and/or vegetables everyday.
4. Fill up my Spark Activity Tracker everyday.
- 1,300 - 1,600 calories/day
- 30 fitness minutes/day
- Complete tracking of nutrition and fitness
- A trip to the gym 3 times/week
I'm happily married to Mark, we have no kids yet but hope to some day. Mark and I are very passionate about completing a few goals in 2014 - individual goals and joint goals. We are active in our church, as well as our jobs which we feel is a ministry as well. We're always hoping to make our selves better than the day before.

Hula hooping with the adult weighted hoop is not only serious business, it's fun as heck! If you're ever thinking about getting one, ask me about it. I researched it to death before I bought mine! I love it!

Hello my SPARKling Friend.....
As we are MARCHing into SPRING...
I just wanted to share this quote for You from me....
“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days,
smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds,
laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart,
hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see,
friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe,
confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself,
patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”
May this March & Spring...
bring you many BLESSings & Much LOVE ~ Deby
