It’s time to push past my comfort zone, expand my boundaries, and break routines. I taken some big steps forward…I have been a non-smoker since late August and I made a job change in October; and I have stumbled backwards a few….eating more to help with my cigarette cravings and letting my new work schedule interfere with my exercise routines. I have a weight gain to deal with, but I am not giving up or giving in. It’s a new year, so time to WORK on a new me.

My Goals:
To have the energy to LIVE, not just exist.

To go through an entire day with out saying or thinking the word "ouch".



My Program:
It all adds up; never discount your efforts, because small efforts build big things. One word doesn't make a novel, but one word does begin a novel, and from that small beginning everything else follows. Even if it's just "The", write something on that blank page. --Laurell K. Hamilton

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit." ~Aristotle

Basically, I will do SOMETHING other than just plan, and I am Working on CONSISTENCY.

NO SCALE FOR THE FIRST 35 DAYS.

Follow my planner!

Personal Information:
Hi, I'm Marni. I have a extensive family history of health issues that I really want to avoid, if at all possible. My Pop is on Medical Disability, and I help with managing his care. I need to take better care of myself, so I can give 100% when he needs me.

Other Information:
I work in a very large hospital, and every day I am confronted with the consequences of not taking care of yourself. The morbidly obese, diabetics, dialysis patients, patients with cardiac conditions, My unit sees them all. What has really shook me up is that many are the same age as me, or no more than 10 years older. I don't want to be them

Hey There - I got your note that you would be interested in joining an April Challenge. That is GREAT!!!

There is interest in a fitness minutes challenge AND a nutrition challenge. Right now, we are talking about doing TWO challenges!!! They would be:

**** NUTRITION CHALLENGE:
Each participant will commit to a certain number of days per week that they will stay within their calorie range. I can then do the math (based on your weekly commitment) on how many days for the whole month that you commit to staying in your range.


***** FITNESS CHALLENGE:
The fitness challenge for April would have 2 pieces:

1) Commit to a certain # of fitness minutes for the month -- for those who have done March's challenge, I would encourage folks to maybe increase their April minutes over their March minutes. For example, I committed to 1000 minutes in March. For April, I think I will increase it to 1150.

2) Identify one form of exercise you are going to add at least once a week that is not part of your normal routine. This will add the "change" element that several of you have requested. For me, I think I will probably commit to 30 minutes of gardening a week. Since I have just been able to get back into my gardening, this is a kind of exercise I haven't been able to do in months.


In order to really do these well, we would need a volunteer for each challenge who is willing to lead it. If we can get two leaders, I would be willing to do all the admin stuff for them :) I just can't imagine running two challenges and not burning out :(

If you want to know more, or if you are interested in either joining us OR leading one of our challenges, please feel free to check out our message board. Here is the link:
