My Program:
*I respect and trust my body.

*I refuse to eliminate foods I love from my diet.

*I try to get 8000+ steps a day, but it;s not the end of the world if I get fewer than that.

*My goal is to spend at least 10 minutes each day doing some physical activity that I enjoy (strength training, walking, Gazelle, trampoline).

*I take a rest day when my body tells me it needs it.

*I say kind things to myself and celebrate my successes.

Personal Information:
I am a married, pre-school teacher and part time library assistant living in southern PA. I love to cook, collect cookbooks, knit, walk, exercise (I think this is the first time I have ever listed exercise as one of my favorite things!), and spend time with my husband, friends, and pets.
