Serene: Determined Amber Amazon Daisy Warrior!

Updated 2/2/14:

I am Serene, a bi, poly, atheist poet and fatchick extraordinaire. I delete comments that state or imply that fat is bad or thin is good. There is no wrong way to have a body. I don't believe in being mean to myself, and I think hating one's body is mean.

BLC24 SMART goals:

1) To complete the BLC challenge by participating every single day
2) To get at least 60 exercise minutes at least 6 days a week

I'm signed up for 2 challenge teams beginning in January: the Winter 5% Challenge, and BLC 24.

Winter 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment

Strength Training: 3 days a week (working on a push-up challenge; will also do team ST challenges for both my challenge teams)

Cardio: Total at least 60 minutes, 6 days a week. Take one weekend day off if desired. In addition, walk at least 12,000 total steps per day.

Winter 5% Challenge Diet Commitment:

Low-fat vegan, stay in nutrition-tracker ranges.

My personal website is at serenepages.org.

I am tracking my food today, and I'm making some promises to myself:

1) I will not be mean to myself
2) I will follow SP advice as best I can, but I will not be mean to myself.
3) I will track my food for at least 2 weeks, but I will not use the food tracker to be mean to myself

Sensing a theme here?

I'm a good person, a loving wife and mother, a successful worker, a good daughter, a skilled editor, and a person with a body that mostly does what I want it to. I refuse to be mean to myself. Wanting to treat my body better doesn't mean I suck. It means I want the benefits of treating my body better.

Okay, onward.

Hi, I'm Serene. I'm still figuring out how I'll use SparkPeople. I was on here for a long time and found myself sabotaging myself by doing too many challenges that weren't a good fit for me. Now I'm going to try to focus on doing what works for my body, and not burning myself out on the social aspects of the site. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks for your comments on the trackers. I received a lot of informative replies. I'm focusing on something else with my fitness energies right now, and decided not to try to add a tracker to the mix. But I did learn a lot in the last couple of days. Glenn
