My name is Barb. I am a wife, sailor, teacher, and cyclist. I live in Michigan and love being outdoors. This year on 11.7.15, I will turn 50. Even though I am very active, I am overweight and borderline obese with a BMI of 29.65. I have been struggling with my weight ever since I hit 40. I want 2015 to be the year I get to my goal of 130 pounds.

My Goals:
My 12 Spark Commandments for Better Living:
1. Remember that love is the most important thing.
2. Be kind to everyone.
3. Don't gossip.
4. Laugh often.
5. Eat vegetables with every meal.
6. Always choose water.
7. Have a plan.
8. Avoid time wasters: watching TV, playing video games, aimlessly surfing the web.
9. Something is better than nothing (exercise, cleaning, saving money, etc.)
10. Be quiet.
11. Be mindful.
12. Do it NOW!


My Program:
Exercise Plan
Do 6 workouts per week. Of that 6 times, 3 must be strength training (Cathe STS). On cardio days, I'll do Zumba and cycling.

Food Plan
Shoot for 1200 calories, but no more than 1500.
Spend the weekend preparing portion-controlled meals for the week.

Why lose weight?
I want to be not just active but athletic.
I want to wear clothes that currently don't fit me.
I want to be in photographs with my family instead of hiding from the camera.




Other Information:
�Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.� - Mark Twain

Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave and enjoy each moment
as it comes. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, retrace your steps
and go back to the purest place in your heart - where hope lives... and you'll find
your way again. - ❤ॐ❤ Everwood

Aloha Kakahiaka sis, a new day, another opportunity, a new beginning to warmly embrace! emoticon emoticon

Never be afraid or hesitant to step off the accepted path and head off
in your own direction, if your heart says it's right for you. Believe
that you will ultimately succeed at whatever you do, and never
forget the value of Persistence, Discipline, and Determination. You are
meant to be whatever you dream of becoming.

When nobody else celebrates you... CELEBRATE yourself.
When nobody compliments you... COMPLIMENT yourself.
It's not up to other people to keep you encouraged.
Encouragement should come from the INSIDE. -Joel Olsteen
