It's time to get serious.

I've been sort of half-hearted trying to lose weight. Now it's time to really buckle down. I've stayed pretty much steady, but I'd like to see some of it go away. Which means I'll have to start moving more than what I do at work. There's so many times I can fit a few minutes of exercise in but I don't. Time to get off my lazy butt.

Member Since: 5/12/2009

SparkPoints: 55,435

Fitness Minutes: 11,135

My Goals:
1. Lose at least one inch off my waist, abdomen and hips by January 31

2. Lose 5 pounds by the end of January

3. Be more attentive to my eating habits, both in portion control and what I eat.

My Program:
1. I'm trying to watch what I eat better, so I can indulge in what I love (banana splits!) once in a while without feeling guilty.
2. I'm trying to be more active. Being in school means a lot of computer work, so I have to make an effort to move. My 2 year old granddaughter is good at helping me do that!
3. Drink more water and less diet pepsi.
4. Remember I have a wedding coming up next year and I want to fit in my dress.


Personal Information:
I live in Minnesota, have three living children, two lovely stepdaughters, four sons in law, and six grandchildren. I'm a registered nurse have my master's degree in nursing education. I teach in a community college nursing program. I love to knit (and crochet), read, listen to music, watch movies and spend time with my husband who is retired.

Other Information:
I have been a fan of Dick Francis's mysteries for years. In his book Straight, there is a quote that I try to emulate: May I deal with honour, may I act with courage, may I achieve humility. I think it's a great way to try to live.

I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, and remember to smile, for every smile makes you a day younger.

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ WHAT I'VE LEARNED ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and it will be better tomorrow. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that making a "living" is not the same as making a "life".
I've learned that life gives you a second chance. emoticon
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands, you need to be able to throw something back. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. emoticon
I've learned that even if I have pains, I don't have to be one. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that I have a lot to learn. &gr;em&lr;149&gr;/em&lr; emoticon

I hope that all of us can learn, not only today, but each and everyday!!
~~ One thing I've learned is that in order to have a friend, you have to be one.~~

Wishing you a """Wonderful Weekend"""
Lots of ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))) & SMILES!!

Becky,
I am not a "perfect person". emoticon
My hair "doesn't always" stay in place, emoticon
and I "spill" things a lot. emoticon emoticon
I am "pretty clumsy" emoticon
and sometimes I have a "broken heart", emoticon
"My friends" & I sometimes "fight", emoticon
and maybe some days "nothing" goes right. emoticon
But when I think "about it" and take a "step back", emoticon
I remember how "amazing life" truly is, emoticon emoticon
and that maybe, just maybe, I like being "unperfect". emoticon emoticon

Hope you have a sensational Saturday, and a super Sunday!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Barb

Becky,
Forgive those who insult you, attack you,
belittle you, or take you for granted.

But more than this...
forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you.

Have a truly thankful Thursday!
