It's past time for me to get on track and stay the course. I've faltered, fumbled and fallen in the ditch too many times to count. I know what to do and am determined to do those things consistently.
.
I'm so thankful to be on the Rockin' Red Foxes BLC team and love them all. SP is my Lifeline and I need to get a good grip and do what works to improve my health and possibly reverse or at least "control" my conditions to a degree. I appreciate all the encouragement, prayers and support available.

I read a lot so if you find your ideas being uhm..."borrowed", please don't hold it against me. What is they say about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery?

I plan to do daily what I can...and hope to increase those things as time goes on. God hasn't given up on me, neither has my Team...so why should I? Let's Rock and Roll...right on into Fall!

My Goals:
My goals include :

1: Get real....Do what I can each day and be thankful.

2: Live well, my remaining days and take ownership of my choices.

3: Reducing blood sugars, triglycerides and BP to normal

4: Build strength, stability and stamina. I CAN do way better....than I've been doing!



My Program:
I want to apply myself to a lower carb, portion controlled plan that my Doctor asked me to do uhm....3-4 years ago? I know it can be done as many others have done it before me! She suggested 1200-1500 calories a day and I know I'd be in good shape had I started way back yonder. I didn't...so will start where I am and go forward from this spot.



Personal Information:
I live in Abilene, TX...love it here! Enough city for me.
I am 66 this year and want it to be a year of spiritual and personal growth.


Other Information:
I love cats...if I could have one, I'd have TWO! I love to read....I've been here in Abilene 22.5 years now. My how time slips away.....
I need to start using mine more wisely!

    Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

    Raindrops are falling on my head
    And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
    Nothing seems to fit
    Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling
    So I just did me some talking to the sun
    And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
    Sleeping on the job
    Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling
    But there's one thing I know
    The blues they send to meet me
    Won't defeat me, it won't be long
    Till happiness steps up to greet me

    Raindrops keep falling on my head
    But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
    Crying's not for me
    'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining
    Because I'm free
    Nothing's worrying me
    It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

    Raindrops keep falling on my head
    But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
    Crying's not for me
    'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining
    Because I'm free
    Nothing's worrying me

    April Rain Song
    BY LANGSTON HUGHES
    Let the rain kiss you.
    Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
    Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

    The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
    The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
    The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—

    And I love the rain.

    When my boys were younger, they were on a competition dance team. Their very first competition number was Raining Men. In honor of our ITC I am posting the lyrics here on your page. Everytime that I hear the song, I can see my precious boys dancing and hear all the applause & screams. It was a wonderful time of my life.

    CONGRATULATIONS on your second week, Casual Traveler!

    We made it to Rio de Janeiro Brazil! We logged 9,759 exercise miles, 1,858 points for Nutrition Tracking and 1,690 points for water.

    27 of us were under, 6 of us were over and 7 of us were the same as our last week's posted weights.

    Again, you should be proud of yourselves for sticking with it, regardless of your results. Very Well done!!!

    So now, let's get excited about this, the 3rd week of our journey!! The plane is currently
    heading toward Maui USA which is our furthest distance so far at 8,186 Mi exercise miles away.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) is Monitoring Calcium and we are again logging Nutrition tracking from last week's LGTL. While water tracking has dropped from the challenge, please make sure to keep hydrating because it's very important, particularly when traveling

    So what do we mean by and how do you get points when it comes to Monitoring Calcium? For a detailed description of how to monitor, please read the first post at the bottom of this week's Weekly Itinerary page.

    In fact, please make sure to read the first post every week because that's where you find the detailed descriptions for living the good life challenge (LTGL) as well as the wording you'll need to use when reporting your daily results. Please make sure to use those when posting.

    So... for this challenge: You can track your calcium by whatever method you choose - Weight Watchers Points Plus (tally calcium manually), Spark Nutrition Tracker, pen and paper - calculate, etc. There are step by step instructions in the itinerary for adding to your Sparkpeople tracker. You will report 10 points for the day for knowing how much calcium you had for the day whether you met your calcium goal or not BUT if you do not keep track of your calcium, you will report 0 points for that day.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 1 mile.

    Nutrition Tracking is 10 points if you track ALL your meals/snacks food for the day; if you don't track 100 %; please do not log any points. This is an all or nothing record.

    As shared before, we're a very supportive, no pressure team but we do want everyone to
    participate to the best of their abilities, (please note, though that reporting during weekly challenges is not optional; if you have an issue, please contact one of the leaders) so please make sure to log all of your exercise miles, Monitor calcium and Nutrition Tracking points before 11:59PM Friday, January 31st.

    Have fun and enjoy the trip!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing categories!

    Every Saturday we offer an optional Wellness Challenge will include a few mini challenges that focus on mind body and soul.

    Please have a great week, have fun with the challenge and make sure to visit the team forum to stay up on current affairs. Please also look for emails from me, highlighting team members and special days.

    Your Motivational Leader,

    jeannie
