Wow, I haven't updated this blog for nearly 1.5 years! However, I still love the title, so I'm leaving it!

I've taken the "if it's to be, it's up to me" mantra to heart this summer. I'm actually exercising for at least 45 minutes nearly every day, and I've been following a healthy eating plan for almost 3.5 weeks and haven't gotten above the number of daily calories that SP recommends.

I hope I can keep this up once the fall semester begins (in about 30 days from now!!)


Member Since: 8/16/2007

Fitness Minutes: 45,570

My Goals:
1) to lose 10%of my weight before summer (June 1)

2) to exercise aerobically every day (currently I have a 33 day streak going!)

3) to beat my daughter in losing 24 lbs!! (we're having a friendly competition)

4) to lower my blood pressure

5) to significantly improve my cholesterol and triglyceride numbers before the Health Fair in March or April


My Program:
1) exercising aerobically every single day (if I fall off the wagon, I may not be able to get back on!) 33 days strong and counting!!

2) "dieting" but not on any particular program -- just healthy eating with appropriate serving sizes for now

3) will begin strength training and yoga program "soon"

4) avoiding all chocolate and candy because that's the sure way for me to fail!

    Quote for today: "There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from." - Elisabeth Kubler - Ross.

    No matter if you make 1000 mistakes in a day, make sure that you learn from them. The biggest mistake is not learning from them.

    Have a great day! Hugs. n.

    Quote for today: "Let's dare to be ourselves, for we do that better than anyone else."

    My wish for you today is that you embrace yourself for who you are. It doesn't matter what size that is because that can always change. There is only 1 of you in the world and if you don't love yourself for who you are then why should anyone else? Look at yourself in a mirror, give yourself a hug, and then tell yourself that you love you.

    Have a great day!
