Accept what is; release what was; have faith in what will be.
Take chances! Be bold, be silly, be weird!

Make time for your wellness
or you will be forced to make time for your illness.

I'm still here.
2020 is my year to release this fat!!
I am just so sick of myself and the same ol’ excuses every year, same ol fat me every year. Full Stop. Deep Breath. Release.

My word of the year: Release.
Release fat.
Release bad habits.
Release fears.
Release clutter.

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

I feel like a misplaced islander.
I’m pretty sure I was a mermaid in a past life.

I’m somewhat bohemian.

bo·he·mi·an (bō-hē′mē-ən) n.
A person with artistic or literary interests who disregards conventional standards of behavior.

I’ve been on SP for a long time. I’ve lost and gained back a lot of weight over these years. Up, down, up, down, up.... This year I’m determined to lose the weight again, get fit, and get off this stupid roller coaster.


Member Since: 3/21/2007

Fitness Minutes: 22,245

My Goals:
Health.

Release 80 lbs this year.

Specific weight goals along the way....
199.8 - finally under 200
191 - I go from obese to overweight BMI
158 - I go from overweight to normal BMI
152 - goal by the end of 2020


My Program:
~Keto: counting total carbs (made a BIG difference from counting net carbs) eating fish, shrimp, turkey, chicken, some beef and pork, cheese, small salads, a little broccoli, a little cauliflower, celery, half servings of nuts and a little red wine (I have a 4 oz glass). Right now I'm not eating much by way of fruits, but will, very occasionally have a couple of strawberries or an avocado (gotta watch those carefully, the carbs in fruit add up fast.) I have full fat Caesar dressing on my salads, use real cream in my coffee, real mayo in my tuna and cook with lots of real butter, coconut oil and olive oil. When I need a little chocolate, I have a square of 90% dark.
~Drink: Besides a little wine, I drink tea, coffee, an occasional Sprite Zero or Coke Zero, enjoy unsweetened flavored fizzy waters and try to drink at least 2 liters of water each day. Also recently discovered hard seltzers... Truly and Whiteclaw, both pretty darn good, low cal and low carb!
~Exercise: 30 min on ebike

A few of my favorite quotes:

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." ~Maya Angelou

“I am a question to the world, not an answer to be heard or a moment that's held in your arms. And what do you think you'd ever say? I won't listen anyway. You don't know me. And I'll never be what you want me to be.”~ John Rzeznik ~ Lyrics to I'm Still Here ~ Treasure Planet

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” ~Dr. Seuss

    In an office:
    Would the person who took the step ladder yesterday please bring it back or further steps will be taken.

    Outside a photographer's studio:
    Out to lunch. If not back by five, out for dinner also.

    Notice in a dry cleaner's window:
    Anyone leaving their garments here for more than 30 days will be disposed of.

    Seen during a conference:
    For anyone who has children and doesn't know it, there is a day care on the first floor.

    Notice in a country field:
    The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free, but the bull charges.

    Sign on a repair shop door:
    We can repair anything (Please knock hard on the door, the bell doesn't work.)

    Sign outside a secondhand shop:
    We exchange anything - bicycles, washing machines, etc.
    Why not bring your wife along and get a wonderful bargain.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    What did the boy say to his mother after a few hours at the beach?
    Mommy I'm surf bored.

    What is the best thing to take to the beach for a picnic?
    Peanut butter and jellyfish "sand"wiches.

    What is a sea monster's favorite food?
    Fish and ships.

    Why did the whale swim across the ocean?
    To get to the other tide.

    Which fish is a comedian?
    A clown fish.

    What did the shark say after eating the clown fish?
