"Know thyself, or at least keep renewing the acquaintance.”
— Robert Breault

...... Clover Fall Fun ... It's time for vacations and birthdays.
Time for gathering family around bonfires or big pots of Soup. The leaves are changing and the beaches here are getting quieter, with just the waves and gulls, not out-of-towners.

This Clover loves having fun in the Fall.

My name is Diane. Proud Clover and Dragon.
I have 15-20 pounds to lose to feel good in my clothes; improve my muscle tone; and control my blood pressure and cholesterol.

My advice:

Stop surrounding yourself with people who don’t support you.
You’re the average of the five people
you spend the most time with. Choose wisely!

Attitudes of a Warrior
I am a warrior... I act in spite of fear.
I am a warrior... I am willing to do whatever it takes.
I am a warrior... I do everything at 100%.
I am a warrior... I am willing to do what's "hard."
I am a warrior... I act in spite of my mood.
I am a warrior... I am bigger than any obstacle.
I am a warrior... I succeed in spite of anything.
I am a warrior... I never give up!

Exercise -
I started working with a small group trainer in May.

Weekly Weigh Ins

I am still out of town about 70% of my work days. I pack my meals to bring and use the hotel gym while I'm away.

Personal Information:
I love the beach, fishing, & gardening. I'm married to my dear husband 30 years. And we enjoy volunteering as Sunday School teachers and VBS Leaders for our church.

We have a daughter, son-in-law, and cutest 8 year-old grandson ever ;-)
And love animals, too! One dog, Freddy; 3 cats: Marie, KC, and Kitty; and a very friendly turtle, Lucky.

I work as an IT Project Manager and am often out of town for work days at a time. I do my best to plan meals and workouts that still fit into my overall plan.

    emoticon for stopping by my page for my Clover spotlight day! And thank you for the goodies. My grandson is still in the hospital. He had a bad day yesterday with 26 seizures. They are still trying to find the right combination of medicine to be able to manage the seizures. It looks like it will be at least a couple of more weeks.

    It has been hard concentrating on losing weight while having his 5 siblings. But I have been happy to see the scale go down even if it is very small each week. Normally I would be seeing it inch upwards and I don't want that to happen.

    Thank you for all your encouragement!
