....here comes the sun........here comes the sun.......it's alright!

We're all ready for the sunshine, right? Decided to give my page an uplift!

I am 60 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh just around 9stone - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My issue is less being fat, and more about my relationship with food.

I am 60 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh just around 9stone - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My issue is less being fat, and more about my relationship with food.
I am learning to manage my tendency to be an emotional eater, and my tendency to be 'addicted' around certain foods. I know what to do - it's just doing it that sometimes defeats me!
I want to be fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!
I'm keen to be lean!

The One Year Challenge on my ticker is a Linda Spangle thing - check her website for more info - it's basically committing to a year of using the 100 Days of Weight Loss book to stay on track to learn to manage emotional eating issues

1st April 2015: 9 weeks to my son's wedding and I want to have lovely skin, toned arms and a trim, happy tummy - here's my plan:-

coffee - only one a day
water - lots of it
fruit - for snacks
skin brush before shower, moisturise with coconut oil
do Coach Nichole's arm-toning videos
do a yoga routine for abs/core
(also maybe run, swim)
prioritize sleep
say 'no' to extra work

My Goals:
1) to get to and keep my weight under 8 stone 7lbs
2) to get and keep my waist under 29"
3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years
To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

My Program:
One Year Challenge with Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss programme.

This is about learning how to manage a tendency to eat crazily as an emotional eater!

I want to gradually incorporate more and more raw foods back into my diet, as that way of eating made me feel SO good!

My plan is about gradualism - which is in line with Spark People's recommendations - small changes lead to big results


Personal Information:
I live by the sea in the South West of the UK. I work full-time as a support worker with adults with learning disabilities. I am a Nichiren Buddhist which involves me in lots of activities.

emoticon Thanks so much for the SparkGoodie. What a nice surprise the "high five" is. As for the blogging every day - well, that's the obsessive compulsive nature in me! LOL! But seriously, I cannot believe I have only 9 more days to go and I will be finished Spangle's 100DWL for the third time! I hope the third time really is the charm!
Hope you have a good week!

Oh, I love the sun...

I had a meltdown with Cadbury mini eggs (Easter treats w/chocolate and hard coated sugar on the outside). Tomorrow I am going to attempt to retry the 100 days by myself. Hopefully, I will succeed. I have gained back too much I am afraid. Not tracking is the biggest problem. It can get away from you that way I think.

Hope you are well...

best
