Ready for the change

Hello and welcome to my page. Feel free to comment and leave me a note. I love meeting Spark People and hearing your stories.

But as much as I would like to see those weight loss goals materialize - feeling well physically, being able to walk and have good, flexible joints (that don't hurt) is much more important at this point. Doing at least 60 minutes of cardio a day keeps my blood pressure in line and the strength exercises help prevent back pain during long office hours.

The biggest challenges at the moment are my heavy work-schedules which take away too much energy for little benefit.

The other thing is - I need to stop solving issues by eating! Happy? Eat something! Sad? Eat something! Bored: well eat a double portion of everything! Exhausted: never stop eating at all. I so need to get over this and I welcome all success stories in that department very much!

Congratulations on the 10,000 steps, that is awesome! I have never ordered groceries online! That stops you from impulse buying! I am taking off tomorrow and Friday and we have our Labor Day Holiday on Monday so it is a 5 day weekend for me.

My family helps a lot with the weeding of the garden. Strawberries sound delicious. We hope to have strawberries next year!

The Dirty Dash is a four mile race/run with obstacles. There were nets to climb up and over, mud pits to climb through, pipes, hay bales and walls to climb over, under or through. Took us 2 1/2 hours to complete it. It was fun!
