Body, Mind, Spirit - Focusing on the Positive

In 2009, I lost sixteen pounds and became the fittest I had been in ten years by using Spark People as a motivator. I gradually drifted away from Spark People and put back all of those pounds. In 2010, I had a medical scare that made me realize that I need to better care for myself. Unfortunately, I backslid again. Much of my backsliding is due to allowing negativity into my life. Now I realize that the only way I can stay with a healthy diet and exercise program is through Spark People. ...

SparkPoints: 21,497

Fitness Minutes: 24,573

My Goals:
1) To eat healthier
2) Lose 14 pounds
3) To stay with a walking program of fifteen miles a week.
4) Strive for a minimum of 7,500 steps a day

My Program:
1) Keeping a log of what I eat
2) Walking 3 miles at a brisk pace five times a week.
3) Wearing a pedometer to track the number of steps per day

Personal Information:
I am sixty six years old and a retired city planner.

In my late thirties and throughout my forties, I was a competitive runner with some good success in age group competition at the local level.

However chronic and repetitive bouts with plantar fascitis put an end to my running. Since running was more a competitive thing than for fitness, I began neglecting my overall fitness when I could no longer run.

Over the years, I continued to gain weight (some of which was needed), but totally lost even the most rudimentary level of fitness. During the last several years, my weight started rapidly heading in the wrong direction.

Now, I have learned to accept that I can use walking as a way to gain fitness without having to use competition as a motivation for getting into shape.



Other Information:
I enjoy gardening and bird watching. I maintain four seed feeders and during hummingbird season, have a hummingbird feeder.

I occasionally paint in oils and enjoy sewing.

Nancy,
~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ Sharing Something Special~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. emoticon
Someone who changes your life just by being part of it.
Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. emoticon
Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.
This is forever friendship. emoticon
When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, emoticon
Your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. emoticon
Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. emoticon
If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. emoticon
If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. emoticon
Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. emoticon
And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. emoticon emoticon
You have a forever friend, and forever has no end. emoticon
~~~~~~ Author Unknown~~~~~~
~~~~~Have a warm, wonderful, wise and winning Weekend!!~~~~~
Barb emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
