Just do it!

2018 is the Year of Me as I journey towards improved health and wellness. Doing the 2018 Spring 5% Weight Loss Challenge is the perfect plan to help me work towards this goal!

Member Since: 9/23/2009

Fitness Minutes: 109,237

My Goals:
Live a healthy fit life, NEVER quit.

I love the 5% Challenges and am focused on the 2018 Spring 5% Challenge.

2014 Summer 5% Challenge Results:
(my best Challenge)

Weight: Lost 11#
Hips: Lost 2"
BMI 25.5 just short of goal to achieve healthy range of 25
WHR .72
Size: 12 (from sz 14)

My Program:
100 Days of Accountability, Ongoing Chapters

Plan "Can Do" list before the start of every day.

Find positives in every day.

Doing 2017 Winter 5% Challenge Program:

Exercise 5 days for 30 min; 2 days for 10 min

Eat a healthy balanced 1200 - 1555 calories daily. 5 of 7 days will be 1400 calories or less. Holidays, family events, vacation option: max daily calories=weight x 15 calories.
No evening snacking as much as possible

Personal Information:
Happily married with 3 terrific grown boys, 4 lovely grandkids. Took an early retirement in 2009, which presented many new lifestyle changes. Have a bookkeeping business going that has me working much too much; watch 6 yr old granddaughter 2 days weekly and grandbaby the other 3 days....and still must make time for my client work, so I am very busy all of the time.

Other Information:
Enjoy time with family and friends, mini vacations, a little gardening, and when time permits reading. Recently got interested in watercolor after a class...haven't really found the time to continue this interest.

    There will be days when you feel like you don't have what it takes,
    but you do!
    There will be days when everything seems to be falling apart,
    but it won't!
    You must know things will work out for the good,
    and there will be days that you look back and say
    I am glad
    I never gave up!!! emoticon

    Try this recipe for success: Mix 3 balanced meals and 2 snacks, with aerobic exercise of any type for a minimum of 30 minutes; add a strong shot of consistency, and whip with a teaspoon of humor. Be sure to add enough water to keep things well-hydrated. Serve on a 9” plate and have fun chatting around the kitchen table! Repeat daily after a night’s sleep.

    Thank you Vicki,
    Lilies mean Easter to me too. Such a beautiful memory for you, giving lilies to your Mom. Every Easter I Use to go in my garden and pick lots of flowers and make a nice bouquet for my Mother. She was always so happy to get them. Will be nice to have my flowers garden back very soon I know she will be there with me.
    I hope you have a beautiful Easter with your family. I know you will. So much fun for you with all the children. Bet Alexandra will have fun, her first Easter. Be careful of all those treats. I have lots of veggies and my treat will be strawberry short cake.
    Happy Easter emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
