Barbara - Maintenance Mode

As you can probably tell from the title of my page, I am in maintenance. I've been in maintenance since October, 2010. This is my second time at maintenance and I learned that I still need to watch what I eat and exercise consistently if I want to stay at the weight and health level I am currently.

As far as eating is concerned, there are places that I can improve. I drink way too much Diet Pepsi. I like the energy drink NOS and I probably eat way more salt and fat than I ...
As you can probably tell from the title of my page, I am in maintenance. I've been in maintenance since October, 2010. This is my second time at maintenance and I learned that I still need to watch what I eat and exercise consistently if I want to stay at the weight and health level I am currently.

As far as eating is concerned, there are places that I can improve. I drink way too much Diet Pepsi. I like the energy drink NOS and I probably eat way more salt and fat than I should. Those are areas to work on in the coming year.

For 2013, my fitness goals are similar to 2010 and 2011 and 2012, since I didn't reach them! I want to do at least one unassisted pull up. I would like to continue my freshly restarted lifting program so that my arms have definition. Ultimate goal is to not have "flapping" underarms, but not sure if that is a possibility without surgery. And I'm not having surgery!

For eating, I will work on decreasing my dependency on Diet Pepsi and energy drinks. I have done better with both, but they are still part of my diet. I will continue my quest in making the food choices about my health and well being, not just my weight. I would like to eat even fewer processed foods than I do now.

Above all, I want to continue to be a good example for my kids. My son actually told me the other day that it's easy for me to eat healthy because I don't like to eat. LOL! I explained to him that I LOVE to eat, but I have learned to eat smaller portions and avoid some foods. I don't think he believed me, but we're working on it.

Stop by and say hi if you get the time. And good luck on your journey.

I had my surgery on Dec 1st. I am doing pretty good! I have been able to eat very well for about a week now and I gained like 5 pounds! My father is now in the hospital with pneumonia. He entered on Jan 1 and they moved him today to a rehab place. I go back to work 1/2 days on Feb 2nd! Thanks for asking, time for a blog again!
