2013 Continue the C25K program and enter more races. Lose at least 4 pounds a month. Weigh 2-3 times a week and leave it at that. Clear out my house of all the clutter and stuff I haven't looked at for years.
Eating at the BMR calorie rate of my target weight.
Walking and then running.
Loving myself for who I am.
2012 Record: 6-3: 273 7-3: 258 8-3: 254 9-3: 250 10-3: 242 10-31: scale vacation - epic fail. 12-23: 239 (not weighing meant I gained 5 pounds from my low 237, so I started weighing every couple of days to keep track) 1-25: 239 4-1: 245 5-1: 239 Back on track after a few months off.
I love to camp, kayak and the outdoors. I am an avid gardener, love herbs, flowers and vegtables. I love geology and all that goes along with that.
"It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things." ~Jo Coudert
I hope you're having a good weekend so far, Sparkfriend! I just wanted to stop by and share a couple of great quotes with you. Keep pushing to reach your goals, one day at a time. Always believe that you are worth your absolute best effort...because you are! Hugs, Pixie
"My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life. Fake it if you must and keep faking it until itβs real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now." -Robert White
"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible. We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us. That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us. We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort. We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible. And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself. For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all. Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?" -Geneen Roth
TGIF, Sparkfriend! I hope your week was a good one and that you're ready for a fit, fun and fantastically healthy weekend! Keep your goals in mind and keep taking steps towards them. Remind yourself that you are capable...and love yourself enough to know that you are worth the effort! Hugs, Pixie
"I believe in waking up every day and taking a good step toward health, and honoring your body." -Troian Bellisario
"In terms of days and moments lived, you'll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you're just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless." -Victoria Moran
Just stopping by to encourage you to make the most of each day, my beautiful young Sparkfriend! Keep your goals in mind, and do something every day that will move you one step closer to attaining them. Don't ever forget that you are always worth your best effort! Have a healthy week! Hugs, Pixie
