Out of the Box

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 ...
I decided since it is no longer Halloween to decorate my page with fall leaves, because they 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: 96,422

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.

Personal Information:
I am from Michigan.

It is hard to keep up with some teams when they are busy. That was why I quite BLC way back when. It was just too much with other teams, si I had to let it go. I'm not taking a boot camp team so I think it will all work. Your team is boot camp style?

Oh my, Scrooge 1935 is on. They just had the one with Albert Finney right before this one. So many variations of the same movie. Charistmas Carol and Scrooge. What a tightwad.
I'm going to be busy tomorrow and don't know what time I'll be back home. I do want to work on that Start Challenge.

Well, have a good night.

I did get the link for BLC. I took the training and quiz, I think I know which teams I'm interested in, but waiting for a friend who wants to join and see what she is doing. I'm tending toward 1st choice Determined Desert Tortoises...or as I like to say since I can spell it...Turtle. heehee. I wonder how many at Hogwarts are on BLC? I used to be on it beginning with BLC-7 and ended after BLC-16. I look forward to getting back.

Zanna, Thanks for commenting on my plan blog. Yeah, that was the focus challenge for this week. I had to keep it simple (which I totally stole from you). You have the Healthy Zanna diet, which is as it should be. Your diet should not be the same as mine as your body and climate are different from mine, even though there are some similarities. That is why I named my diet as I did. It is to emphasize eating to keep me healthy and not focus so much on eating "paleo" or "clean" or low carb" or insert name of diet here.

You know it's taken me a long time to come to this point. I'm finally just eating for me and not on a diet.
