Making Over God's Temple

Hello, my name is Brenda, and I'm a 47 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 successfully lost 50 lbs in 2015, but after a hospital stay and doctor ordered rest for 8 weeks, I gained back nearly 30 lbs of it. So, here I am, entering the fall of 2015 with a rekindled motivational spirit to get it done right this time around

Hello, my name is Brenda, and I'm a 47 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 successfully lost 50 lbs in 2015, but after a hospital stay and doctor ordered rest for 8 weeks, I gained back nearly 30 lbs of it. So, here I am, entering the fall of 2015 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 even (finally) fixed my mountain bike! No excuses!

I've been overweight for 7 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.

So, here I am on the verge of the 2015 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!

Fitness Minutes: 33,388

My Goals:
My goals are to lose 70 lbs that have crept up on me since my 30th birthday 17 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 2015 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 Nutrisystem program for the next 8 weeks (already paid for it will be delivered just in time for the next challenge).

I will log my daily calories and post my exercise minutes

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

I will be supportive of my teammates and read and comment on blogs and pages

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

Hi, I'm dropping by from the 2016 Winter 5% Challenge Leaders page. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone throughout this challenge! I also studied history in college. I really loved looking at family and popular culture post WWII. Did you have a favorite time period to study?
