I decided since it is no longer Halloween to decorate my page with fall leaves, because they make me happy. I always struggle as the days get shorter and this semester has been particularly rough, and fall leaves make me happy. I remember my first year at college, I collected armloads of fall leaves around campus and taped them to the window of my dorm (probably wouldn't get away with it now, as it's probably considered a fire hazard). So I'm decorating my spark page with something purely for me for once.

I am a married graduate student in the process of trying to reclaim my health. I am hoping that Sparkpeople will help me get closer to where I want to be.

Fitness Minutes: 106,548

My Goals:
My primary goal is to be healthier. I want to have more energy, less stress, less pain, and to be able to live the active life I used to have.

Sub goals:
1) Preferably, lose 30-50 lbs
2) Gain back muscle mass and improve cardio fitness
3) Eliminate hip pain
4) Eliminate headaches
5) Eliminate carpal tunnel and tendinitis problems
6) Better manage allergies and asthma


My Program:
1) Eat a relatively healthy diet without obsessing about food. I refuse to stress about whether or not I eat another slice of meat or treat myself to a bit of chocolate. I aim for moderation when it comes to food.

2) Try to work out 5 times a week, both strengthening and aerobic exercises, preferably for at least 30 minutes a work out session. These work out sessions include exercises and stretches specifically assigned by my doctor for reducing hip and hand/forearm pain.

3) Drink plenty of water, take the prescribed medications, and try to live responsibly in regards to my allergies.

    Last minute details: After your invite, you display the Team Logo on your SPpage (it doesn't have to be in #1 place but we do want to see it up in your top 6, please) and post your:
    Name ~ House
    DOWN in your Signature, if you haven't yet, so other Hogwartians know from whence you hail.

    I *love* your SPpage, but I think you need to 'dress-it-up' with a touch of BLUE for going back to Hogwarts. emoticon Invites go out September 1st.
    Can't wait to *see* you at the Castle!

    You definitely have some challenges in terms of your DH's allergies. Is there office space where you can keep carrots, etc. for your snack times or are you still working mostly from home?

    Thanks for stopping by again! I find that the Acacia Fiber works for me and I don't feel like I'm doing my body harm with it - like using flaxmeal when baking. I mix the fiber into my yogurt. Strawberries and blueberries are also fabulous sources of fiber!
