My name is Lesley. I live just outside of Boston, MA. I am married with 2 grown boys and a dog. My husband and I love to travel. We were pretty active - skiing, gym, camping, etc. but some injuries (broken bones, torn ligaments, bulging discs) have made us a little more sedentary and out of shape then we would like.

My name is Lesley. I live just outside of Boston, MA. I am married with 2 grown boys and a dog. My husband and I love to travel. We were pretty active - skiing, gym, camping, etc. but some injuries (broken bones, torn ligaments, bulging discs) have made us a little more sedentary and out of shape then we would like.

I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (hypothyroidism) and it is really, really easy to put on the weight and really, really hard to take it off. I find that when I stay active, I can at least maintain, and have been watching what I eat for many years to not get out of control.

I was never a gym person, but am more and more getting into going and liking it. I like being outdoors and walking and staying active. I really hate winters now.

It's time to start being more active, getting into shape and taking care of me, since for the last 20 years I have been taking care of other.

I am looking for overall healthy lifestyle. My goal is to loose 15-20lbs, but more importantly begin a more active lifestyle .

My Program:
My goals;

1. Long term goal is to loose 15-20lbs.
a. Exercise to a spark video at least 3x per week.
b. Log my food every day.
c. Use fitbit to track my activity

2. Meditate .

3. Unplug at night. 1 hour of computer time at night.

4. Spark in the morning over coffee before work.

5. Stay organized. Keep to do lists visible and current.

6. Create a motivational board.

My goals will change as I try to work with the boot and heal my Achilles. If I have surgery these goals will stay for a longer period of time. I just need to stay motivated.

emoticon Happy Wednesday! emoticon emoticon emoticon Stopping by with a poem for you:

Send A Drop Of Kindness
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

Send a drop of kindness,
And see a happy face.
A drop of kindness goes real far,
It may even reach outer space.

Send a drop of love,
And feel a loving embrace.
It feels so good to feel like,
You are in the right place.

Send a drop of hope,
But be that shinning star.
Hope is wonderful to have,
But sometimes you can't sit away so far.

Send a drop of faith,
With a single prayer.
And God will show the way,
As faith is always there.

Have an emoticon day! emoticon emoticon

~~~~~~~~~~7 Lovely Logics~~~~~~~~

1) Make Peace with your Past,
So it doesn't spoil your Present.

2) What others Think of you is
None of your business.

3) Time heals Almost Everything.
Give the Time, Some Time.

4) No one is the Reason for your Happiness
Except You, yourself.

5) Don't compare your Life with others,
You have No Idea what their journey is all about.

6) Stop Thinking too much
It's Alright not to know all the Answers.

7) Smile..You don't own
All the Problems in the World.

DO these sound Logical (natural, reasonable, sensible, understandable) to you?

Have a Wonderful Week Full of Logical Days!!

emoticon Today's quote is by C. JoyBell C.:

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

So, our challenge this week is to do it and throw ourselves into the open so we can grow and live our healthier new lifestyle and enjoy the ride! Have a fantabulous new week! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
