Hi - I'm Marcia. I retired from teaching elementary school for 35 years. I am counting carbs and exercising in an attempt to prevent Diabetes. Maybe in the process I'll lose some weight too.

Member Since: 9/15/2012

Fitness Minutes: 52,810

My Goals:
-My first goal is to keep my carbs in check to prevent Diabetes.
-My next goal is to exercise 30 minutes a day for at least 5 days a week.
--My last goal is to lose 15 lbs by Oct 1,2015

My Program:
-I will count my carbs before I eat and make sure that I am staying within my healthy carb range of 45-50 carbs per meal and 15-20 carbs per snack. This includes 3 meals and 2-3 snacks a day.
-I will exercise for at least until 30 minutes a day. I will do cardio for at least 3 days and muscle strengthening for 2 days. I will walk in the evening on Mon Wed and Fri. On Tues & Thurs, I will do a Spark Fitness Exercise Video.
-By counting my carbs and exercising I should be able to lose 2 pounds a month. I will weigh myself at the end of every week to monitor my progress.

Personal Information:
When I retired, my vision of retirement was staying in bed all day, eating Bon-Bons, curled up with a good book. However, my retirement has been much more enjoyable! Instead, I have been changing diapers, cleaning up messes, watching �Yo, Gabba Gabba�, singing �Don�t Bite Your Friends�, playing �Horsie-cart� and reading �Hop On Pop� until I�m blue in the face!!! I LOVE every minute! I�m so thankful my daughter gave me this chance to stay at home with her kids and be a Stay-At-Home-Gma!!

Other Information:

    Lfe is an experiment. The more... the merrier!

    Being adventurous is one way of learning about ourselves and the world around us. Interrupting the everyday monotony by being open to new possibilities and people keeps our perspective on life, fresh. Take risks, use good judgement, listen to your gut and go for it when it feels right. Let's gift ourselves a life of dancing 'outside the box', while we still can.

    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. - Will Rogers

    To become and maintain success calls for the willingness to work hard, a bit of luck and an unending desire to improve upon ourselves. It's a bumpy ride but don't lose sight on where you want to be or the person you know you're meant to become. Stay the course, keep moving forward and you will get there. Have an excellent week and live your best life... hugs! •¨¯`💕
