Fitness Minutes: 9,726

My Goals:
I'd like to make changes that last.

I need to find workable foods that fit in with my family's food allergy needs.

My Program:
Right now I am working on a food repertoire and carving out time to pursue more physical activity.

4/17/14 - I am working on strength training, specifically The PACE workouts promoted by Al Sears, MD. I've also enjoyed using exercise balls along with my son. I would like to learn "chi running" so I can run without joint issues.

Personal Information:
I am from the hills of western PA where deer are abundant but jobs not so abundant. I have a child attending on-line college and a child on the cusp of high school; we have educated them both at home so far. I teach music part time and do a plethora of other necessary things full time, including supervising my intellectually disabled brother. My husband and I are completing our 23rd years of marriage.

Other Information:
We deal with multiple food allergies. As a result, my children are almost self-sufficient cooks now.

I enjoy reading - especially biographies, art, music, gardening, and too many other things to list. Best of all I like connecting with friends and family.

Motivation for Weight Loss

M-make short term goals
O-out with the negative thoughts
T-think of why you want it
I-imagine how you will feel
V-visualize the future you
A-acknowledge your successes
T-treat yourself with respect
I-investigate new ideas and foods
O-observe your healthy lifestyle
N-never give up and never give in

Holidays are coming! Here are some tips to help you “maintain” when temptation strikes:
1. Eat something small and healthy before the “big meal”.
2. Exercise every day – even the holiday. Take the family with you.
3. It’s ok to have dessert, but only a SMALL one.
4. Track what you eat. If you have to put it in writing and be accountable, you’ll be less tempted to overeat.
5. Downsize your portions – especially of the high-calorie dishes.
6. Save calories for food you love and don’t eat the things you don’t “LOVE” just because they’re there or because it’s tradition.
7. Spend more time talking with your loved ones and friends instead of eating.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Don't Give Up!

"A 'no' and a 'yes' are all it takes to lose weight. Say 'no' to sitting on the couch; say 'yes' to working out. Say 'no' to crazy diet plans; say 'yes' to freshly cooked meals. Say 'no' to your naysayers; say 'yes' to your inner voice." (Unknown)
