Because I can...

I remember saying to my husband a few years ago that we had better decide to develope a healthier lifestyle now because it would only get harder with age. I allowed myself to take 5 years to loose my pregnancy weight and that was way too long. I want to be able to play with my daughter, or do my old sport like activities again without worry of injury or slow healing.

Fitness Minutes: 7,607

My Goals:
Focused on a healthier lifestyle: Eating less, eating at home, playing more with my daughter, small activity daily, beter financial planning, learning to set goals, and building self confidence. Seems pretty easy so far.

My Program:
I'm tracking my calories and taking my measurements every two weeks to see progress. I go to the local Y to do cardio or swimming 3-5 days a week. I check my goals daily with my favorite saying, "What would you do today if you could not fail?" I just do it now!

Personal Information:
I'm currently training as a crystal engineer at Bliley Technologies Inc. in Erie, PA. I haven't used my ceramic engineering degree in 10 years and it is great to be thinking again. The challenges are great.

Other Information:
I am a memeber of the Erie chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) and hope to be fit enough to try fighting in armor or ride horses again.

well, Atkins is working for him without any new exercise... I've not gained any new focus from his accomplishments. I'm starting to notice I'm getting less comfortable at my current weight. That may be the key to making me change things in the right direction again. Now if only I can decide how to set new goals.

Haven't been using Sparks much... I still think of my friends here often. I am always happy to check in on them. I have been too busy at work to blog and too family focused at home to blog. I stopped gaining, but I have only started to lose again. My husband started Atkins and a new job. Hoping his new found focus will help us both make strides to healthier living. Hoping to incorporate some family walks soon.

Sending good thoughts - take care of yourself during this difficult time. It's easy to do the opposite, but that will just make it worse. So glad you're going to the doctor. YOU GOT THIS.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm like an old car that keeps turning over and won't start lol, but with some care and attention, I'll get there. Good luck on your restart. We'll try to touch base with each other to see how our weeks go!
