Emerald Gems Leaves of Change ROCK!!!
Follow the yellow brick road!
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I do solemnly pledge:
that I will do my best to eat healthy and within my calorie range,
that I will exercise to the best of my ability,
that I will watch my portions and avoid mindless eating,
that I will avoid or limit unhealthy foods,
that I will try to get enough sleep,
that I will stretch myself out of my comfort zone,
that I will always try to make healthy choices even when stressed,
that if I slip, I will get back on track with the very next opportunity,
that I will keep a CAN DO attitude, or ask for Help,
and that I will support my fellow team mates
Because I am an Emerald Gem
And every Gem wants to shine.
Thank god there is Sparkpeople! I tell myself that everyday. The motivation from others is priceless. I am going to get where I want to be with my weight, its going to take time and hard work! I will NOT give up!!!
*To get in routine again with going to my local fitness center! I was doing very well last year, but sadly this past March my gym closed their doors. I was devastated, and my routine dropped to non existent. Needless to say, the weight has come back on plus some.
*Focus more on my nutrition!
Membership at my local fitness club, The Centre.
The Centre offers weight room facilities for co-ed or ladies only, there is water aerobics and fitness/cardio classes. So I'm getting my butt in gear and using them!!!

Karen R (ADALOUISE) from the Scarlet Dragons would like you to join her this month in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Challenge! Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many of us, and we all know early detection is the key, whether male or female!
So before you give the tatas a once-over, let’s get in a workout first! The exercises listed have a modifier with each, so you can join in at any fitness level! If there’s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isn’t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now let’s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!
S-50 SQUATS (50 Adductor/Abductors)
E-50 FRONT JABS (50 Seated Biceps Curls)
L- 30 LATERAL LUNGES (30 Seated Hip Extensions)
