I am grateful!

I am 54. I am learning to conquer disorderly eating. I embrace exercise and love to encourage others. My name is Carole (though I am quite attached to my Sparkname of Cannie which combines my first name and my middle name of Ann(ie). I happily answer to either name. I am married, a mother of four, and a grandmother of three beautiful g-babies. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am active - I walk, run, strength train and do other activities.

I am 54. I am learning to conquer disorderly eating. I embrace exercise and love to encourage others. My name is Carole (though I am quite attached to my Sparkname of Cannie which combines my first name and my middle name of Ann(ie). I happily answer to either name. I am married, a mother of four, and a grandmother of three beautiful g-babies. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am active - I walk, run, strength train and do other activities. Exercise has been part of my life for years. Food, not activity, has been my struggle. I am grateful to find support, encouragement, and knowledge through Sparkpeople. I am committed to losing 50 pounds of excess weight to lessen the burden on my body. I lost 30 lbs initially, kept it off for over a year, re-gained 20 and realize that weight doesn't keep itself off - it requires more vigilance than I was willing to maintain. I have fought this battle for so long, mostly on my own - Sparkpeople is a great blessing to me. My initial challenges are to be free of binge eating and disorderly eating in general, and to eat more nutritious foods, overall.

SparkPoints: 31,027

Fitness Minutes: 62,540

My Goals:
To continue to be active so I can stay active.
To offer support and encouragement to other Sparklers.
To continue my journey to better health and improved fitness on my way to a 50 lb weight loss. I fully intend to arrive at my goal weight of 143 lbs, and then focus on the work of maintenance.
Thy will be done.
I am learning to eat like a healthy adult.
One of the reasons I want to lose weight is to lessen the strain on my hard-working joints caused by excess weight.
TO SERVE AS AN INSPIRATION TO OTHERS WHO HAVE STRUGGLED AS I HAVE.
I am going to log enough fitness minutes in one year to help me drop 30 or more lbs of fat. Of course, it doesn't help as much unless I refrain from eating lg amt of useless calories, which undermines my hard work.


My Program:
Tracking nutrition & activity daily on SP

strength training 3x wk

hiking, walking, and/ or running 6 days per week

mixing things up: going up and down in my SP calorie range to keep my body "on it's toes" a little, plus lots of exercise one week, less the next, and making sure I get enough sleep which makes a big difference for me in terms of appetite, self-discipline, and weight

relying on SP for support (and finding it!!) thank you!

Blogging on SP several x per week-thank you for reading!

Personal Information:
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Hello Spark Friend!

I haven't seen any updates from you lately! I may have missed some as I have been very busy. If you saw my last blog, my sister in law had a massive brain tumor and passed away. We went to Eugene for her 50th birthday and she was acting a bit strange, the next day she was admitted to the hospital and we found out about the tumor. So we have been back and forth to Eugene many times in the last month.

To say the least, my running and clean eating have taken a huge hit, as did yoga and all the other things I do. We are not done yet as we are headed back down to help empty her apartment and take care of some other things like mail and bills and banks. It would be a lot easier if we knew what we are doing.

I hope you are doing fine and just to busy to sit at a computer and get on SP! Look forward to hearing from you!

Mike
