This is my real life - not a practice round!

So much for the back story. I'm in this to improve my quality of life and hopefully to look a little better. I'm changing things up a little. Forget not using the scale. By ignoring it, I'm not making the kind of progress I need to make....that is , NO PROGRESS.

So, BACK TO DAILY WEIGH-INS TO KEEP ME ACCOUNTABLE!!
(I'm leaving the rest of my 'whys' / history below, in case you're suffering from insomnia, or in case it might open the door to dialogue between us.)

Back in the Spark world again, and I realize how much I have missed this supportive community. My life is still a little crazy. I work in Social Services and travel throughout the state quite a bit. Both daughters live in town and they have their own sweet families so I'm able to play with my grandbabies some - 3 so far, with another due in September. I'm in a long term relationship with a wonderful man who is my best friend and cheerleader! I have a lot to live for, but without making significant changes in my lifestyle and making better choices, my health will suffer.

After being absent for a couple of years, I have added a few pounds. This is the place I really need to be connected with to ensure my focus on health and getting rid of fat becomes a reality. This lifestyle change is really needed. Turning 60 this past October made me realize that I really don't need to play around at this any more.

My previous fitness program was intense and provided virtually no weight loss results. I have realized that counting calories may work for some, but not for me. I heard someone recently say that "weight loss is not a math equation, it is a science experiment!" There are many factors that affect weight, and I think hormones play a huge part. So, I promise to quit doing the same thing and expecting different results.

My new plan is to follow the SANE method based on "The Calorie Myth" by Jonathan Bailor. This is a Science based program that is based on the research of thousands of scientific studies. I plan to follow these 5 steps:

1 - Eat SANE foods (10 servings of non-starchy veggies per day, high quality lean proteins, whole food fats, and low-fructose fruits).
2 - Gradually, safely and sustainably exercise as many of my muscle fibers as possible for 10 - 20 mins once per week and to do interval exercises once per week.
3 - Get 8 hours of sleep per night.
4. Stay hydrated
5 - Do something to restore myself - like yoga, dance, stretching, walking, etc. each day.

Okay, that's it for now. My goal weight is 152 lbs. A sort of random number, but when I weighed that I felt good. I wanted to get back to my original weight, but 7# 6 oz. is not possible!

Happy Friday! emoticon Time for some Friday Funnies emoticon

My yoga class is great! You can close your eyes, and imagine yourself in a relaxing place, like lying on your couch not doing Yoga.

I prefer sit-ups to jumping jacks. At least I get to lie down after each one.

I was going to wake up early to go jogging, but my toes voted against me 10 to 1. - Randy Glasbergen

Have a great day!

Before you act - listen.
Before you react - think.
Before you spend - save.
Before you criticize - wait.
Before you pray - forgive.
Before you quit - try again.

A reminder today of remembering to move through your day from your heart.

The greatest thing you have is the 24 hours in front of you. The past is gone; the future is distant.
Today you CAN succeed. Set a goal you can achieve in the next 24 hours.

I hope the coming week is full of success, happiness, and good things for you!

It's Friday! Time for some Friday Funnies:

Diet, n: the all-consuming obsession with the food you shouldn't have eaten yesterday but did, the food you have eaten today but shouldn't have, and the food you shouldn't eat tomorrow but probably will.

Have you heard about the new Chinese Food Diet?
You can eat Chinese food as often as you want, but only with one chopstick.

Willpower is the ability to resist temptation until you are sure no one is looking.

The only exercise I get every day is wrestling with my conscience.

Have a great Friday! I hope you'll join me for Friday Happy Hour later.

We always work for a better tomorrow,
But when tomorrow comes instead of enjoying it . . .
We again think of a better tomorrow!
Let’s take a deep breath and be present
And let's have a better TODAY!
Hope your Thursday is as terrific as you are!
