Making Over God's Temple

Hello, my name is Brenda, and I'm 46 year old computer geek who has just let herself go for way too long. I used to be fit and healthy, but time, school, work, and life just seemed to get into my way. I've successfully lost 50 lbs in 2013, but need to lose a few more pounds than just that. So, here I am, entering the fall of 2014 with a rekindled motivational spirit to get it done right this time around

Hello, my name is Brenda, and I'm 46 year old computer geek who has just let herself go for way too long. I used to be fit and healthy, but time, school, work, and life just seemed to get into my way. I've successfully lost 50 lbs in 2013, but need to lose a few more pounds than just that. So, here I am, entering the fall of 2014 with a rekindled motivational spirit to get it done right this time around

As for me and my family, I'm single, never-married with two adorable pups: Boots (a 3 year old Boston Terror) and Sampson (a 9 year old Springer/Dachshund mix). I live in the greater Indianapolis / Carmel area and have lots of trails around to hike and walk. I just need the motivation to do just that!

I've been overweight for 6 years now and I'm about over it. I miss the gal I used to be and I'm praying that I can be that person once again.

I reached ONEderland during the 2013 Fall 5% Challenge and am looking to plant myself firmly in the 190s in the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge. I have been receiving a lot of encouragement from friends and family about my weight loss accomplishments and are rooting me on to reach that 165 goal.

NOTE: On 9/11/2014, I weighed in at 208 lbs on my scale at home. I'm definitely going the wrong direction. I'm now a cancer survivor and have no excuse because they treatment for my type of cancer was not harsh at all (just an excision on my shoulder to remove the tumor). The only thing that happened was a meltdown of sorts once the notion of having cancer hit. I stopped exercising, I stopped eating healthy, I just plain stopped.

So, here I am on the verge of the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge and have a renewed determination and spirit to get back on track. I have all of the tools. I have all of the knowledge. It is just matter of putting these things in action. Which I plan on doing...TODAY!

My Goals:
My goals are to lose 70 lbs that have crept up on me since my 30th birthday 13 years ago. I want to feel healthy, be healthy, and regain confidence in how I look and feel.

My Pampering Goals: Okay...here we go!

Goals:
1. $1 for every pound lost
2. $1 for every inch lost
3. $.50 for every day I stay in my calorie range
4. $.50 for every day of 30 minutes or more cardio
5. $.50 for every day of strength training

My Program:
My 2014 Fall 5% Challenge Commitment Goals

I will commit to getting in 30 minutes of cardio a day for the 8 weeks (56 days) of the challenge.

I will commit to getting in 30 minutes of strength training twice a week for the 8 weeks of the challenge.

I will commit to following the 30 days to fit food plan

I will log my weight each week on Saturday

I will log my Living the Good Life points

I will check in with my team daily by commenting on the message board

Personal Information:
I'm in Carmel/Westfield, Indiana, and pretty much from the Indiana area. I have two dogs, Sampson, who I lovingly call wondermutt, and Bootsie, who I call the Boston Terror. I am not married, and have no children.

Other Information:
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
