Ahoy!

My husband and I have swashed our buckles a few times at the Portland Pirate Festival, and my pirate name is Iron Bess.

A few years ago on the day before my birthday, I received a scary medical diagnosis. I sure didn't feel like an Iron Bess then. I've realized with time, however, that I'm not defined by a medical condition, that I'm still a person with hopes, joys, dreams, abilities, good friends and family.

My Goals:
To weigh less each month for however long it takes to reach my goal of 125-130 lbs.

I've divided the total desired weight loss into smaller sections. The ticker shows the first 25 lbs. Seems less daunting and more achievable that way.




My Program:
*Ride exercise bike 1 mile or more four or more days a week plus occasional other exercise such as Wii, yoga, walking for variety.
*Core strength exercise with stability ball 3 times a week.
*Track food daily online or in a notebook
*Log in to SparkPeople daily
*Eat nourishing whole food, low fat, low or no refined carbs
*Measure waist 1st of every month and check in with Spark buddy
*Start the day with a cuppa and a little inspirational reading.

Personal Information:
We live in a magical Mountain West location of the US.

Other Information:
I like skywatching, bicycling, lake kayaking, organic gardening, travel, crochet, archaeology, nature, movies, music (esp. world music, jazz). Novice Native American flute player.

Well fiddle-dee...the rain set in too early and cheated me out of my jog...took 'er indoors for weight lifting and spinning. Pumped up alternatives at least...! :-)

Happy Easter and thx so much for the SparkGoodie!

After a terrific week of thaws and outdoor jogs we were greeted with a winter wonderland of SNOW this morning...perhaps I had the day of the month wrong and it's April Fool's day?!? ;-)

Glad I got my outdoor "fix" while I could!
