I am back at it again trying to lose weight and become healthier in the process. Besides losing weight my goal is to eat a healthier balanced diet with fewer processed foods and stay within my calorie range.

Member Since: 5/7/2020

Fitness Minutes: 19,493

My Goals:
Current goals are:
1. Lose weight.
2. Eat healthier
3. Be more mindful of what I am eating and how I am taking care of my body.
4. Plan and track my food intake.
5. Exercise 3-6 days a week trying to aim for closer to the 6 days a week.
7. Take active part in the summer 5% challenge for 2020.

My Program:
I just joined the Summer 5% Challenge.

My current plan is to continue to work out 3 to 6 days a week from 20 to 60 minutes. I mainly work out using You Tube videos and enjoy Pahla B Fitness as she has many "knee friendly videos." I like to do her low impact cardio videos 3x a week and now just starting to incorporate some of her strength and toning videos the other days of the week. On my off day I like to do a stretching video or a walking video.

Personal Information:
I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors and also spending time with my family. I also love paper crafting and also maintain a You Tube channel where I show off my projects along with teaching a few tutorials. I have taken a small step back from this though as I have been focusing on my health and also have been busy with work. My husband and I maintain residences in North Dakota and Minnesota. In Minnesota we do live on a lake so whenever the weather is nice and the wind is calm I enjoy kayaking and working in the yard. In the past I enjoyed walking/hiking but my knee has a hard time handling pavement for any period of time or walking up and down hills. My knee has been doing better though with more strengthening so hopefully someday I will be able to do this again. I do work for my husband who is an environmental consultant. I help him with paperwork, wildlife surveys, wetland surveys, grass and tree surveys.
