Grey Wolves Fall Fitness Frenzy ~ member of the pack!

Time to update my intro. I'm pleased to say that I have been able to stick with the Atkins lifestyle and I am seeing results. That makes me happy. I don't think I've ever stuck with a "diet" or life change for this long ... except for the negative life change of eating too much & not exercising.

I now enjoy exercise, though I will admit - some days it's a push to get myself moving! But once I get into it, I love it.

Spark People has been a lifesaver. I've made some excellent friends here - those who make me laugh, those who build me up & those who help me pick up the pieces when I feel like I've failed. This is a great place to feel safe just being myself.

Member Since: 10/5/2013

SparkPoints: 8,917

Fitness Minutes: 14,428

My Goals:
I want to lose over a hundred pounds. I celebrated the first 10 and will continue to celebrate each 10 as they melt away!

My Program:
I was strict low carb and that worked for a while. Now I'm trying to focus more on clean eating - keeping out processed food & sugar. Meats, veggies, whole grains and dairy.

Exercise!
Walking, elliptical, zumba, jillian michaels and aerobics. I wanted to become a runner but with the arthritis in my knee, the doctor has frowned on that! So I get in my power walks which still get me to sweat & make me feel great. Now I need to incorporate more strength training in to my routine.

Personal Information:
My name is Diane and I am 46 yrs old. I'm married with 2 children and we have a bunch of animals. I live in the Pocono mountains and love it here. Love the wild life, the weather and all the amazing places to hike. It is a beautiful area and I hope to get more active as more weight comes off.

Other Information:
My goal is to be the best "me" that I can be.

Hey! You got another gnome!

Well , yeah I wouldn't shoot a squirrel, stalker emoticon

They're quick, and how much meat would you actually get anyway?? I'd rather be fishing. Fish aren't cute. And I haven't found a tree full of mother-less fish and helped nurture them to adulthood. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Snow White. emoticon

We found a bird that had been attacked by the cat next door in our yard the other day- you should've seen the hubby! He was SO cute. Came in looking all sad and wanted to know what he should do (He thought maybe put it out of it's misery, but couldn't do it without my ok.lol). We found a rescue that told us what to do with it until we could bring it in. And then he gave them a donation too! What a hubby! emoticon

hahahahahah...sorry about the cookie. I was talking about exchanging food treats for other treats that lift my dopamine levels, and a cookie is one of the food ones I need to exchange because they totally raise my dopamine levels.... love cookies. But they are off my program! lol

I love photography too. emoticon

Stay strong... emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Panthers eh? I guess that is acceptable. As long as you are NOT a Packers fan!! haha! I am not a huge fan of the drops but I do enjoy the packets of water flavoring. I also worry that it's not as good as plain water but it's usually the only way I can drink it and in my opinion that's better than not at all! haha!

Thanks for the blog comment ... even if you did take wife's side over mine with regards to my once beautiful glass art collection.

I hope no one here reads this and realizes you were diss-ing those in the fine arts of all things glass. I mean, what if Chihuly himself came by and saw this? Yes, yes, we both know my wonderous collection was not Chihuly, but we must agree it was of the same importance, magnificence, and value right?

Diane, I am equally as grateful to have you around and sharing this journey with me as you are having me. I think you are one of the most warm, caring, loving women I have met. AND a LOT OF FUN! I've said it before and I'll say it again...we have a lot in common. You are right...we would most likely get kicked out of STAR BUCKS! lol! So...I am assuming you are over your PISSY mood...lol! Atta Girl!
