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: 105,317

Fitness Minutes: 110,257

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.

"My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no one's doing but my own.
I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

emoticon Good morning and Happy Weekend.. Today's inspiration comes from Kurdish Saying:

The root of all health is in the brain. The trunk of it is in emotion. The branches and leaves are the body. The flower of health blooms when all parts work together.

So here's hoping your flowers of health bloom brightly! Have an emoticon Saturday, weekend and journey into healthy living! emoticon emoticon
