I can't believe that I started Spark People in 2010. It looks like I bounced back in here in 2012 but that was a short stay!.. Well it is time again to recharge myself and my mind on how to stay healthy for good.. My health actually has been very good. The weight didn't all come back but it inched up there slowly. I realize what I need is to learn more about healthy choices. And to use our trackers. I have not done well with thinking off the top of my head :) So here I am back again and ...
I can't believe that I started Spark People in 2010. It looks like I bounced back in here in 2012 but that was a short stay!.. Well it is time again to recharge myself and my mind on how to stay healthy for good.. My health actually has been very good. The weight didn't all come back but it inched up there slowly. I realize what I need is to learn more about healthy choices. And to use our trackers. I have not done well with thinking off the top of my head :) So here I am back again and hopefully to stay a bit longer and learn a whole lot more. I have always enjoyed this site and will be encouraging others to join.
To walk 3+ miles a day 5 days a week. To always reach for the healthy choices. To write in my gratitude journal every day.
To do a good cardio work out during the day and a nice yoga workout before going to bed at night 5x a week
I will track my food everyday.
I will write in my journal each day.
I am working towards a healthy heart and to improve my circulation.
I do the walking videos and I am considering ordering some dance videos. The goal is to be strong and healthy so I can be more active during the warmer months
My name is Ronie. I live in Oregon with my Husband. My children are grown. I enjoy getting together with family and friends. My husband and I love to cook and I am pouring over the SparkRecipes to find some good healthy choices that he will love to!
We moved to the beach in 2004 and love it. We bought a house and have been having a wonderful time fixing it up and writing down great ideas for future projects
I like to do things with my hands. I like to crochet. I taught myself thread and filet crochet I also taught myself to knit 'Something' about 4 years ago. I have made my socks that I wanted to do and I learned to use DPN's then I am glad that I did.. because now I am knitting beautiful lace and enjoy that more than anything. I knit and crochet evenly.. I usually have one or two projects going at a time in each of those crafts
I can totally relate. I would like to walk further and sometimes feel I could but I worry about getting too far from home and then being "broken down". You know what knee trouble is like - if you have problems it's usually problems with pain and bearing weight and both are a warning not to be ignored. My hubby has had to help me get home before. I find now that if storms are on the way my joints are screaming. I have had to take an acetaminophen the last 2 nights in order to sleep.
I have a long list of foods I hate. Thankfully most things on the list are things that aren't really good for you but some things are.
McDs salads are some of the best as their dressings are better and the lettuce is usually not wilted. They use mixed greens instead of the plain old iceberg but I totally agree about the grilled chicken, it's weird. The problem is I don't think they cook things there any more. They just warm up everything in those floating water trays. Ick, It's difficult to get anything healthy and tasty in the fast food realm.
My fear is that he is right and my daily carb intake will be something gruesome like 20gms. LOL. He has never mentioned going that low but has said 150 was way too much for me. I tend to want to stay on the high side so I have more options like beans occasionally.
“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.” -Arnold Bennett
I am turning over a new leaf, thanks to the support of my Sparkfriends! I appreciate your comment on my blog, "Coming Out Of Hiding." Have a healthy week!
