Healthy After 40

I had a baby in December 2009, and after struggling for two years, I finally lost all the "baby" fat thanks to SP. Prior to that victory, I rejoined in June 2012 with a lot of enthusiasm and commitment. I am still incorporating healthy eating practices, without becoming a dieting lunatic. My ultimate goals are to get into a healthy weight range and continue to achieve healthy eating and exercise goals.

I am finally regaining my balance after an injury and business set-back. ...

I am finally regaining my balance after an injury and business set-back. Thank God!

My Goals:
My goal is to maintain this program for the long term and never stop focusing on good health. My quantitative goal is to get to a healthy B.M.I.

My Program:
*My goal is to eat 1700 calories a day. I was eating 1300 and was told that was too little, so I am trying something new.

*I work out at least five times a week, now, 30 to 60 minutes of cardio, 40 to 45 minutes of ST (I alternate muscle groups), and 20 to 30 minutes of ab work.

*I am also using the sauna every time I go to the gym for about 20 minutes.

Daily Goals:

(1) Make the best possible food choices or eat less than 1700 calories a day.

(2) Add good things into your diet.

(3) Stop eating when full, not stuffed.

(4) Exercise at least 60 minutes, at least 5 times a week. ST 5 times a week.

(5) Drink water at work or home on weekends.

(6) Move all day, teach standing up, and get up every hour.

(7) Lenten Goal: Pray every day for 10 minutes/read scripture.

Personal Information:
I am happily married and have a lovely four year old for a son. My husband is incredibly supportive and puts up with me experimenting to figure things out.

I am considering getting a personal trainer to maximize my cardio.

Hi!!

I'm doing alright. Got myself off track, and back on again--this summer is kicking my tailfeathers.

Hoping & praying that you'll be better soon.

Hugs,
Susan

"Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again --- and again.
Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will come.
And it will be good."
-Lysa Terkeurst

Happy Tuesday! I'm just stopping by from the Countdown to Teddy Bear Picnic Day team to wish you a great rest of the week! Keep that word PROGRESS in your mind, and do your best to keep moving forward...because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,

A remarkable thing happened to me yesterday - I was asked "how was your day?" and the person actually wanted to hear my response. I almost did not know what to answer - I was like "day -uh - I thought my day just began a few seconds ago. You mean there were several hours before this - ok - let me see" emoticon emoticon emoticon

I spent too many years in your shoes. Not profound, just knocking into you the truth
How's that?
