I live in Cumbria (in the north-west of England). I love running in the hills and am an active member of the local church.

Hello

I live in Cumbria (in the north-west of England). I love running in the hills and am an active member of the local church.

I was really pleased to discover SparkPeople because it will help me to not only lose excess weight, but also do it in a healthy and, I hope, lasting manner. It's certainly a challenge, but then I like challenges!

I've just signed up to the Fall 5% Challenge. I'm still really struggling with keeping my calorie intake within my allotted range. My diet is generally very healthy but I eat too much of it! It is hard not to become disheartened, but I'm NOT giving up!

I will swim three times a week, strength train twice a week and run at least three times a week. I also do a weekly Pilates class and will make sure I stretch for at least five minutes every day.

My goals for the Fall 5% Challenge are:
1. stay within my daily calorie range
2. stay within my daily carb, fat, protein and fibre ranges
3. do at least an hour's exercise every day.
6. Log my LTGL points and 'air miles' each week, if not every day.
7. Post my weekly weigh-in result.
8. NOT read blogs, articles, play trivia, take part in forum thread discussions or games or any other Spark Point-obsessive activities unless I can Really spare the time!
9. Time freed by observing Point 8 to be put towards ensuring that I get at least 7.5 hours of sleep each night.
10. Focus on being positive about myself and my body (not an easy goal to achieve but a helpful one).

SparkPoints: 108,642

Fitness Minutes: 112,695

My Goals:
I want to be slim, fit into my 'slim' clothes comfortably, feel good about my body, not embarrassed by it and to be able to run faster. And I want to do all this in a healthy way that I can maintain. I also want to feel good about myself as a person, which I often don't at the moment.

I need to be kinder to myself and give myself the rest, sleep and healthy food my body requires instead of punishing myself all the time.

My Program:
I'm going to track all my food, stick within my calorie goals, and exercise and do strength training at least twice a week. I'm also making sure I stretch for 5 minutes a day.

Hey there! In American, Santa does say "Ho Ho Ho", but somehow it also turned into a slang term for a... promiscuous girl lol. So we had an extra laugh on that behalf. I totally dropped the ball and explaining which one Billy was.. OOPS LOL. He is the beautiful male elephant with the stunning tusks :D

Hello, my dear friend!

Thank you for your goodie. Love it!

For me, now comes the most difficult time in terms of food/eating: December. Though we do not have Thanksgiving, like you, Christmas season actually starts in December and ends the 2nd of January with lots of cultural goodies in between emoticon

Let's stay strong!

Big hugs,

Patricia

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
