I defy traditional labels. Socially liberal, morally conservative, can't figure out how people can be cruel to one another. I love to get to know people who are not just like me. I'm a natural optimist, but sometimes get dragged down by a gene pool that tends toward depression. I wish the sun would shine all the time. I love OTHER PEOPLE'S dogs, but would say I'm a cat person. Big into sports, particularly soccer, track/cross country, football, college basketball and any Olympic event except boxing and such. It is difficult for me to go a day without some Junior Mints. I wish I were a better evangelist.

Member Since: 1/23/2013

Fitness Minutes: 69,502

My Goals:
I will be strong and fit enough to say YES to any physical activity I'm asked to participate in. Biking to MIL's house 50 miles away - YES! Running sprints with my soccer daughter- YES! Kayaking up the river to the next town - YES! Carrying 35 lbs of cat litter into the house - YES!

I will say NO only if I want to, not because I'm unable.

My Program:
Eat food for fuel. Expand my repertoire of healthy foods.

Exercise daily and vary activities - HIIT, running, walking, weights, kayaking, elliptical, yoga, pilates, WATP. I'm taking suggestions!

Make time for relaxation. Get 7-8 hours of sleep. Read something for fun every day.

Personal Information:
Live in NE Wisconsin which means cold winters and hot summers.

Married 28 years in 2016, and have two grown children.

Love to be active. Becoming more diligent about food choices so the 50s flabbies don't set in.

Having a heckuva time keeping those Junior Mints out of my mouth. They are my worst temptation.

    So, your Day 17 turned into another day of Practice Hunger Tolerance! ; )
    And a good one too, you did great in this difficult situation.
    I'm glad to hear your DH accepted that you are leaving bites when you are full - that is a very precious skill, deserves praise not scolding.

    People may put discouragement in our way, but if we are at ease in our own shells, nothing will keep us from our goals! emoticon

    That candy corn lying around in the kitchen most be hard to resist, you deserve credit every time you succeed!
    Would the "owner" accept if you placed the candy in a nice opaque container?
    I know some people can't... oh well, we cannot change thinking of others, only ours, and you are doing that very well.
