Just do it!

Correction: 2021 is the Year of Me. Still working on my 2020 goal.
I have shed 20# and 15 inches and am at pre-pandemic weight and getting closer to my 2020 goal. No magic: "just do it!"

2020 is the Year of Me as I journey towards improved health and wellness. With a great Q1, Q2 & Q3 were overshadowed by stress eating from the pandemic. I am determined to finish Q4 strong, from my commitment and actions and Spark support and the Fall 5% Challenge. Q4 was a disappointment. Just started Winter 5% Challenge. Week 1: Lost 5#. My resolve feels strong. I WILL do this!


Member Since: 9/23/2009

Fitness Minutes: 149,804

My Goals:
Live a healthy fit life, NEVER quit.

Though I have loved the 5% Challenges.....my break from them is O-V-E-R

2014 Summer 5% Challenge Results:
(my best Challenge)

Weight: Lost 11#
Hips: Lost 2"
BMI 25.5 just short of goal to achieve healthy range of 25
WHR .72
Size: 12 (from sz 14)


My Program:
100 Days of Accountability, Ongoing Chapters

Make good with actions for progress on Program

Reflect on the positives and blessings in every day.

5% Challenge Programs. They keep me actively engaged.

Exercise 5 days for 30 min; 2 days for 10 min

Eat a healthy balanced 1200 - 1555 calories daily. 5 of 7 days will be 1100 calories or less. Holidays, family events, vacation option: max daily calories=weight x 15 calories.
Snacks are healthy choices and if not, VERY limited
No eating past 7p.



Personal Information:
Happily married with 3 terrific grown boys, 4 lovely grandkids. Took an early retirement in 2009, which presented many new lifestyle changes. Have a bookkeeping business going that has me working much too much; watch 6 yr old granddaughter 2 days weekly and grand toddler the same 2 days....and still must make time for my client work, so I am very busy all of the time.


Other Information:
Enjoy time with family and friends, mini vacations, a little gardening, online jigsaw puzzles, and when time permits reading. Recently got interested in watercolor after a class...haven't really found the time to continue this interest.

    "Do not be discouraged by the distance you still have to travel.
    Instead, appreciate how many "life miles" you have already covered.
    Your struggles have changed you into a stronger and better person.
    Don't let anyone dissuade you from blooming into the person you are meant to be.
    Keep walking."

    Nothing quite clears the head and energizes the body like a good walk!
    Whether taking an hour's stroll in the morning,
    or going on a long distance hike,
    it's good to connect the soul with nature.

    “A wise old owl lived in an oak;
    The more he saw the less he spoke;
    The less he spoke the more he heard:
    Why can't we all be like that bird?”

    Happiness is realizing that whether or not I give a hoot.
