# I Know My Numbers, Do You?

### Saturday, September 13, 2014

So I'm back, again....
I'm getting ready to join the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge Team.
A lot has happened... Things are still happening... But I'm a bit more "settled," and a lot less "frazzled."
I'm just planning on taking it one day at a time.

I'm reading the above. I don't like calorie counting and this is the way into portion control but out of calorie counting!

This is my current lock screen wallpaper. If I lose 2lbs by my next weigh in, I have my own permission to buy them :)

Now onto the numbers:

First day of the Fall 5% Challenge: Saturday, 09/20/14 weigh in

The last weigh in for the 5% Challenge: 11/15/14

A) How many pounds will you lose to achieve your 5% weight loss?

Current weight 168.6 X .05 = 8.43 pounds

168.6 - 8.43 = 160.17 (Target Weight)

By When: November 15, 2014

Current Weight: 168.6 pounds
Target Weight: 160.17 pounds
By When: November 15, 2014

B) Update your data in My Trackers/Start/Edit Goals (under Track Weight button), Set Your Weight Goal

Current Weight
Target Weight
By When

Then click on 'Save my changes'.

My Trackers/Start/Edit Goals (under Track Fitness button)

Complete your Edit Fitness Goals and remember to hit 'save' which will take you to the Track Your Fitness screen. Scroll down and you will see your weekly exercise minutes and calorie burn.

You may want to check this to estimate calorie burn

sparkpeople.com/resource/calories_burned
_list.asp

After you update your weight goal and date, and your exercise Plan, your daily calorie requirements are automatically updated.

D) Now in Start/ Calories In & Out

Calorie Goal 1320 -1720
Minus Eaten Today - 0 Equals Calories
Remaining Today 1320 -1720 Calories
Burned This Week/Weekly Goal 2806/2160
Goal to go from 169 to 160 by 11/15/2014

5% Challenge Commitment - Plan

So with 60 minutes daily exercise (from fitness plan), and eating between 1,320 - 1720 calories a day, I will lose 9 pounds in 8 weeks.

# I'm Still Here!

### Friday, May 16, 2014

I've been really busy... too busy to go to the gym and walk... but I've been active.

The following pictures are from the exhibit that I was in charge of bringing to San Francisco. We had it displayed on Treasure Island.

Now we are busy engaged in an evangelistic series. 5 nights a week we are at the Marine's Memorial Theater. It's been hectic, but worthwhile.

My current plan is to spend 6 out of 7 days in the gym. I want to walk at everyday if possible. Walk definitely on the day that I don't go to the gym.

So I haven't fallen completely off the wagon... I'm around, just super busy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Today, I learned my father has been called to Rest In Peace.

I don't believe that when you die, you go to heaven, hell or purgatory. (At least not immediately).

I believe that when someone dies, they go to sleep. A breathless sleep.

One day, God's son will return with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first. And we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet our Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.

I don't know if my dad made his peace with God before he passed.

But I know I prayed and so did many others.

I cried many a tears.

But I know I am at peace with God on the situation.

If you pray, remember my family and I in your prayers.

Thanks always, sparkfamily!

 ELENNARE 3/7/2014 2:00PM So sorry to hear that, Kels. Hugs and prayers coming your way! Don't forget to take care of yourself during everything that's going on. I know you're focused on other things right now, but if you're doing the whole funeral home thing, may I recommend picking up a box of energy bars (or some other quick to grab, shelf-stable food) to stash there? I did that when I lost grandparents several years ago, and I know several of my family members would not have eaten anything all day if not for those and someone telling them to eat. Starving yourself, even accidentally, doesn't help with the grieving.Eternal rest grant unto Kels' father, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Report Inappropriate Comment

# Happy 7th Sparkiversary to My Classmates & Me!!!!

### Tuesday, March 04, 2014

It's my Sparkiversary! It's my Sparkiversary! It's my Sparkiversary!
Happy Sparkiversary!

I'm singing it to the Lone Ranger tune.

The above picture was taken weeks ago on my walk. I thought it was interesting that the graffiti artist chose orange and white... I guess cuz it stood out. But I'm from CA, that spark is not our spark... . But I thought I'd use it anyway.

I went for a 7 mile walk today! What a way to start off the 7th year!
