Do at least one thing today to make an investment in your health. You are worth it!!!
I want to live a healthy, active life by making good food choices and working out 0n a regular basis. Life is short--we can treat ourselves well in the hopes to be able to enjoy our time here, or we can make poor choices that lead to poor health and live our days out in misery, sickness and pain. I am choosing to do all I can to be healthy and well! I hope you will too!
I am eating fresh fruits and veggies along with lean meats, beans, nuts and healthy grains. This time around, I am allowing everything--nothing is off-limits. I am allowing myself a half of a dessert once a week. Other times when I want a 'treat', I am eating things that are sweet but do not trigger me to binge. These things include Kind Bars, graham crackers, Greek key lime yogurt, sherbet, Larabars etc. This is not a diet, but a way to live healthy for a lifetime.
For exercise, I am doing cardio of some kind at least 4 times per week and I have begun to incorporate some strength training weekly. I am excited about the new beginning the Spring 2016 Challenge is bringing to my efforts to regain my health!

HI Sharon !! WELCOME to the SUMMAH Challenge as a DAWGGIE who's LOYAL ! WOOHOOO !!!
I read through ur page,,,, though it was set up for the SPring , no doubt a lot of what helped you in the Spring,,, you wish to keep on with during the summah !
I WISH I could go into the ocean ! I MISS it, but this time of year,, LOL the water is only up to 52,,, that's ONLY 20 degrees above FREEZING !! In the middle of July into August for a little bit it MIGHT hit 63,,, in general it hits 61,, and stays there during that time. MANY of us still go in. On a HOT Day (the sand heats WAY UP so I WORRY if my feet will get blisters !) to cool off. NOTHING Like having ur body going TOTALLY NUMB to cool you off. AWESOME !! I stay in the ocean for an extended amount of time. I've not though during the past 2 yrs been able to go in. Two years ago I had a foot surgery,,, it took almost a year to heal,,,, than the area reopened up,,, ,hasn't healed yet,, well in the past few months,, it heals,,, I go back THANKFULLY into custom made shoes, but it reopens. So I know there's NO swimming now for about another yr.
It'd be GREAT to be in a WARMER ocean,,,, but many of those beaches have little creatures that bite ! Are you paying attention to SHARK WEEK? I was in Jr High when Jaws first came out. A WHOLE bunch of us skipped school and went together. I had NEVER BEEN SO SCARED !!! LOL it's horribly FUNNY now, but it was NOT then !
