I am a 49 year old Mom and Meme. I have been here at Sparkpeople since April 14. I have lost 11 lb so far. But what I have gained is so much better.

I am breathing better. I could barely walk up my stairs before, now I am walk/jogging 4 miles a couple of times a week!

I sleep better, eat better, and just feel better!

I have signed up to do a 5 K Color Run in September, so my goal right now is to train for that. It is not timed, but I would like to finish well for my own competitive self. :)

Ok, so been away for a year.....what a mistake!!!!! I put on so much weight! More then I had lost. So here I am, back to start over...

Today is day one, of the rest of my lifestyle change. I did it before and I will do it again.

Challenge: I have a very difficult time breathing, because I have COPD. Not an excuse, just a challenge.

Goal: Lose weight and improve health, breath better, and have more energy.

My Goals:
My 5% Fall Challenge goals:

I will prepare and cook my meals at least 5 days a week.

I will exercise for at least 60 min.per day for 5 days a week.

I will eat at least 5 freggies per day.

I will work at eating 25 grams of fiber per day.

I will drink at least 8-8 ounce glasses of water per day.

I will stay in my caloric limit everyday.

I will continue walking at least 3 days per week.

I will continue with my Zumba classes.

I will do my best to encourage and motivate my team mates and those around me!


My Program:
I am working on improving my diet, less sugar and carbs, more protein. I am also trying to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. This was a struggle at first, but seems to be getting easier.

I intend to work out as much as possible, at least 10 min a day.

I go to a Zumba classs twice a week, so I only need to come up with 1 day of cardio on my own. The other days, strength training.



Personal Information:
I live in Northeastern Maine.


Other Information:
I love to craft! My mind is constantly going over things I can make! We have WAY to many craft stores in my area!

    The best kinds of people are warm and kind,
    They are always there and they never mind.
    The best kinds of people smile and embrace,
    They support you with strength and grace.

    The best kinds of people love and cherish,
    They lift you up when you're near to perish.
    The best kinds of people share your joy,
    To laugh with you, to joke and enjoy.

    The best kinds of people stand up tall,
    No matter how hard they fall.
    The best kinds of people are honest and true
    The best kind of person, my dear, is you.


    My good friend, Pattie, shared this poem with me & I had to pass it along!!! :) :) :)
    Thanks so much for being one of the 'BEST' kind of people, My Friend!!!
    I truly value & cherish your support & your friendship!!!
    Hugs,

    Jes
