2012 a new attitude!

My name is melodie and I have been with spark people since october 2011. I am a critical care nurse specializing in open heart patients. I know all the hazards of eating badly. I teach my patients about good health and healthy heart living after surgery and conditions such as congestive heart failure and heart attacks. I was not overweight til I went to nursing school 15 years ago. The stress of my job, bad choices and eating on the run has put a toll on me.
I really not sure how ...

I was not overweight til I went to nursing school 15 years ago. The stress of my job, bad choices and eating on the run has put a toll on me.
I really not sure how my weight got here, used to be so healthy. I was a marine in 1983 and actually ran the marine corp marathon, funny how life changes. I also love to cook.
I just turned 50 in december and had a blood clot to my leg due to obesity and my job, hard work running up and down halls performing cpr due a code blue. I made a healthy change in october and the duration of 2011 took off 25 lbs. I need to lose about 80 or more lbs to be considered healthy but this time I will do it.
I also love horses and have just 2 now. The lil colt (cowboy)in my picture is all grown up and is a 5 year old gelding(as of the other day) and I have a mare sweetie who is expecting a foal in may. I got out of riding due to my weight and that is one of my goals for losing weight.
I want to enjoy life instead of passing through it. Please come with me on this journey.
I recently returned from texas visitng family and after talking with my aunts I decided to make a food blog mostly of our families history with food. My grandmother recently passed at 98 and after cleaning out her place found a ton of recipes, some I had some I did not. So check out my blogger site, hence the name change.

Fitness Minutes: 1,265

My Goals:
first goal- 25lbs 10% weight goal by christmas day 230 -DONE!
2nd 15% weight goal 38lbs by valentines day 216lbs
3rd- 20% by easter
205lbs

My Program:
I love eating as clean as possible nothing processed, lean meats at 2-4 whole grains a day and lots of vegetables. I never really ate fried foods unless it was a special event but the wrong foods. I have a stressful job and eat on the run and there was always something in the breakroom to grab a handful of chips, a few chocolates, or cake someone brought in they wanted to get rid of from home.
This is my new beginning.

It is Saturday, I wanted to make a short visit on your page today. Need to let you know how important you are.

I am hoping to get my house cleaned so tomorrow I can relax watching the Super Bowl. My hubby and I are working on a healthy snack menu No soda pop or chips,or junk food.

Tonight I am gong to look into how to make rag rugs. I need rugs for my kitchen and thought rag rugs would be prefect for my farmhouse kitchen. Trying to keep my mind of my back pain as well as do something that is fun. I'd like to use some of my old sheets and table cloths that have stains on them.

Wonder if any of you have made rag rugs?

Hello my special friend:
What a blessing you are to me...sure am honored to be able to send you a message and know that you enjoy them. That means so much to me.

I love Sundays...spend them relaxing and enjoying my family. What are you up to? Anything special happening this week? I have my appointment with the back specialistβ€”hope he can ease this pain.

Today my hubby is the chef. I get a day off from cooking!! However, cleaning the kitchen will be my job. He sure does use a lot of dishes. LOL But what counts is his wanting to help me out. I do appreciate that.

How are you doing with your healthy life-style journey? Because I have not been sleeping, I am not losing any weight. I sure could use some encouragement. Do you need any encouragement too?

Hello my dear friend:

Needed to stop by to wish you are wonderful day. Plus tell you what a special friend you are . I am so blessed to be able to call you friend!

A thought for today: Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.~~Dale Carnegie
