My Goals:
Daily Goals:

Drink more water!

Get at least 7 hrs sleep!

Eat more healthy foods, but no food is off limits in moderation!

Aerobic exercise at least 30 mins every day - Walking on my breaks and 1/2 of my lunch hour adds up to an hour a day! (Done! 7/3/2014)

Weekly Goal:
Strength Training at least 3 times per week.

Short term:
Get under 200 lbs!
(Done! 3/16/14)

Next Goal - 195 lbs!

135 lbs, strong and healthy!

(My top weight was 230 lbs in March, 2011)

My Program:
It's not enough just eat healthy or to exercise regularly, to lose a significant amount of weight, you have to do BOTH consistently!

Personal Information:
I'm a divorced mom with one son who's going to FSU right now to get a degree in Chemistry! I musta done something right. Ü

Now that's he's trying his wings and preparing to leave the nest it's time to focus on me again and figure out what this next part of my journey will entail. I know I will be happier and healthier when I lose weight so that's just what I'm doing.

I work on a computer all day long and then when I get home I write, again on a computer, so sitting all day is not helping. I like breaking my hour of daily walking up to get my blood flowing instead of sitting for hours at a time without moving. It seems to be helping. I'll add more intense exercise as I get fitter, but for now I'm content with my journey so far.

Other Information:
"Strength does not come from winning.

Your struggles develop your strength.

When you go through hardship and decide not to surrender, that is strength."

Hi added you as friend and would welcome you also. Have joined writers support group recently. Just starting out with my fitness program but making big changes in my life that are positive and will help. If nothing changes, nothing changes. I have embraced that. Read your spearkpage and saw your son is off to college and you are thinking of getting a life of your own. Coincidence! Me too, but my kids are older. And I am the one going back to college! Again. School has always been the love of my life. Am self publishing now and so will probably just audit one class her semester that will benefit my writing, but the atmosphere will be so much better for me! More positive. Hope to connect with you. What are you writing? Very interested.

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something – anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

“Dont ever be impressed with goal setting; be impressed with goal getting.
Reaching new goals and moving to a higher level of performance always requires change, and change feels awkward. But take comfort in the knowledge that if a change doesn't feel uncomfortable, then it's propably not really a change.”
