Spring and new hope......

Perusing the healthy lifestyle is becoming a natural thing to us. Breakfast usually consists of fruit and whole grains and a little protein. For several months we have been having our main meal in the middle of the day and it is working out for both of us. I batch cook more so there are always meals ready to heat up on busy days. Dinner is a big salad.

I have done multiple challenges with the Daisies and each time I learn something new that becomes part of my journey. I know I must track food to lose weight. For me some kind of exercise has to happen every day or I just don't feel right! That is a long way from a sedentary lifestyle! On my "rest days" I often put on an old movie (I love them!) and will do Leslie Sansome type walking but on a slower basis. I find myself standing up during TV shows and just moving around for a few minutes.

I am ready for this challenge and determined to meet my goals!

I will continue to walk everyday at least 5 days a week. I will do some kind of exercise every day. I will weigh/measure all food including condiments.

Personal Information:
Hi -

My name is Donna. My DH of 48 years and I live in central Florida most of the year. We have a little cabin in the mountains where we like to go and escape the summer heat.

I love to read, play computer games, garden and walk. I spend most Saturday mornings at the local yard sales and am forever searching for that special treasure.

My DH and I like to travel - especially cruises. We like unpacking once and sleeping in the same bed every night. And someone else takes care of everything else. But for 2014 we plan to see the USA. We've done quite a bit but have places we want to re-visit and take the grand with us this time.

We are blessed with two grown children (one son and one daughter) and a sweet teen-age granddaughter. We love spending time together and try to take the grand everywhere we go. She still likes to be with us so we consider each day a gift.

Other Information:
I love to read, do all kinds of puzzles, spending time with our teenage DGD but most of all we like to travel. We find cruises the easiest. Unpack once and someone else takes care of everything for us!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below
