Call Me Dee

Returning to SparkPeople was one of the best decisions I made in 2012.

I hit my goal weight 12/31/12 and it was the best way to end the year. I maintained my goal weight all of 2013 and to celebrate it I joined the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team.

Motto for 2014: I am an adult! (And will therefore think and act like one, when my inner 3 year old wants to take over!)

January- 27/31 workout days; hit my daily steps count 30/31 days. ...

I hit my goal weight 12/31/12 and it was the best way to end the year. I maintained my goal weight all of 2013 and to celebrate it I joined the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team.

Motto for 2014: I am an adult! (And will therefore think and act like one, when my inner 3 year old wants to take over!)

January- 27/31 workout days; hit my daily steps count 30/31 days. Challenges: 30 Day Abs Challenge and no cookies all month.

February- 18/28 workout days; hit my daily steps count 27/28 days. Challenges: repeat 30 Day Abs Challenge- ended 2/13; day 11 of the challenge (I got really sick).
No Cookies, Chocolate, Cake, or Candy all month- I ingested 1 fortune cookie, I totally don't think of it as a cookie; and there's some debate about my ingestion of panCakes and pound Cake, because I don't count them as cake. I had nightmares that I ingested a gummy bear or an M&M and blew the challenge, but I did better than I thought!!

March- 31/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 31/31 days; Streak into Spring 21/21 days; eat 3 veggies a day 28/31 days; and go to the gym 4 days a week 4/4 weeks!

May- 25/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 28/31 days; Challenges: 100 Happy Days- days 31-61 in the bag; Hit new goal weight- not meant to be this month; 30 Day Abs Challenge- dropped this challenge early in the month; go to the gym 4 days a week- 1/4 weeks

June- 30/30 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 29/30 days; Challenges: 100 Happy Days- days 62-91 in the bag; Go to the gym 3 days/week- 1/4 weeks; Take a walk break at work- 21/21 days; Eat within range 6 days/week- 3/4 weeks; Inch closer to that new goal weight- didn't happen

July- 26/31 workout days; hit my daily steps goal 24/31 days; Finish 100 Happy Days- done; Emma Nutt Day Maintenance Challenge (with center weight of 122lbs)- missed the deadline for the final week in July; Go to the gym 3 days/week- 4/5 weeks; Eat within range 6 days/week- 4/5 weeks

So nice of you to stop by my blog about getting to go visit my daughter. I'm thrilled she is moving to Florida, and excited about going to spend the month with her. We will be furniture shopping -- although I'm checking right now on sending a few of my expensive stuff to her -- stuff that did not sell on Craigslist, cheaper than buying I'm sure. So I have a lot to get done before I leave in January! Thanks for the compliment too!

Merry Christmas,
Eve

With rainy day and holiday wishes. Paula

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in lifeó
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.
Have a wonderful and bless day emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
