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.

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.

My Goals:
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.



Personal Information:
I am 50+, married with 2 boys. I have a black lab named Dudley. I live in Massachusetts.

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

Sometimes the strongest
women are the ones who
love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fights battles that
nobody knows about.

Are you a strong woman?

Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!
Barb

Good morning and Happy Hump Day! Today's quote is by Les Brown:

“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”

Too many people like to blame someone else for everything so I find this a good quote to remind us that it is us who is responsible for how our life goes. Have a Happy Hump Day and a Wonderful Wednesday making the choices you need to achieve your goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
