JOHAL52 is still in a holding pattern over life. But that's okay--sometimes holding patterns can lead to growth--it's up to me :) -- Her status for 2Aug11 -- A small comment that speaks volumes.

Member Since: 8/24/2009

SparkPoints: 103,379

Fitness Minutes: 56,263

My Goals:
To exercise more, get more toned, and get to a healthier weight. I would like to stave off any joint problems in legs and hips.

Another goal which I have is to get rid of a lot of the "stuff" I possess, way more than I need to have.


My Program:
11/15/09 --I use the nutrition tracker and follow no particular weight loss diet, just try to get more freggies, less carbs and fat. I have been customizing the "my favorites" list to include the foods I use the most. I have been also making use of the exercise tracker, trying to get at least some cardio and/or strength training in every day.

2/24/13 - Still working with the same nutrition program. Started WATP on 2Jan13 and am seeing how long a streak I can get.

1Dec13 - I have continued my exercise streak of at least 10 minutes of cardio a day and today will be # 334.

8-24-14 -- The streak is now 600 marking the fifth anniversary of when I joined Spark.

Personal Information:
I live in Northeastern Montana. I work more than full time at a desk job. I spend way too much time on the computer...

15Oct14 -- All of this still holds true.

Other Information:
Am a cat person. Like to knit, sew, quilt, garden -- but don't seem to get much of them done.

2/24/2013 -- Several fiber craft people have been meeting during lunch hour once a week to work on projects, visit, and show off our latest projects. We also share techniques when someone has a problem with their project.

15Oct14 - Yardwork went by the wayside most of this spring/summer/fall, due to moisture arriving at inopportune times.

Thanks for your perspective on my rant blog. I had seen the calorie warning frequently in the weight loss phase, while tracking fitness manually. in 20-20 hindsight, I think I was eating too little and losing too fast; but because my inital goal was only to lose 21 pound, I got away with it.

In maintenance, one of the first things I noticed was that I had to boost calorie intake well above the recommendation to keep from losing weight. I quit looking at the actual calories tracked long before I got the Fitbit. Getting the Fitbit made the answer closer for me, but it's still variable and not reliable as a guide for how much to eat.

Tracking the Fairly Active Minutes is a bit of a disappointment. It gives me 24 Spark Points per day regularly, which pretty much takes away the motivational aspect of fitness minutes tracked on SP. I leave it linked because I like having the steps and hours of sleep transfer automatically. I just have to find other motivational tools than fitness minutes to do what I need to do with fitness. But I won't give up the Fitbit, because that sleep tracking is a key metric I watch.

Drove to Helena mid-week and was sure worried about the canyon if it snowed. Only showed in the mountains but it sure was pretty. It was 28 degrees here on Friday morning so the garden is shot...and it's raining today! I thought Fall weather would be back...but both the weatherman and me were wrong! Have a great weekend!

"You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time."
