I am a 60 year old woman with three grown children, two grandchildren, two cats, two dogs, and a wonderful husband!

I love to cook, bake, read, walk. I am interested in yoga, politics, culture, and GROWING as a person.

I want to age gracefully and healthily

Today I commit to doing some form of exercise for atleast 15 minutes per day, and doing strength training for atleast 1 time per week. I re-commit to healthy eating 98 percent of the time, and faithful tracking of my food and exercise. I also commit to doing yoga, beginning with chair yoga once per week.

I want to be flexible, healthy, and fit as I age. I want to dress as I wish because I can fit into any style of clothing not because I can only purchase a limited amount of styles in plus size. I want to wear clothing that fits me! I want to be all that I know I truly am.

there is nowhere to track some workouts, but today and every Monday and Thursday I will do Jane Fonda's Start Up which is more than a warm up and less than a full workout. I am doing this to re-introduce myself to working out, up until now I have only been walking or doing a walk out workout.

Today I decided to challenge myself by committing to being able to do a push up. I have never been able to achieve this other than by using a wall. I will begin by doing chest presses every other day to build strength, then follow by wall push ups, stair push ups, and finally the real deal!

    Welcome to Living Binge Free, where we concentrate more (but not only) on establishing livable routines of eating more than on weight loss. It so often gets in the way, especially for bingers, because the brain is not interested in weight loss. It's interested in getting those dopamine shots and protecting access to concentrated calorie sources! The hard truth is that just stopping bingeing does not necessarily lead to weight loss, but it can and often does lead to better health markers and certainly more sanity. That is worth a lot! People who learn to manage their eating with easily livable eating usually do a lot better in the long run than those who try to be ideal but end up not being able to stick with it.

    Come join us on our thread that functions as a chat thread, though its name is 21-day streak. You don't have to keep track at all. (That can trigger some people.) We have over 39,000 posts and over eight years without fizzling out, though some leave (and likely end up dieting and failing, as the research shows.) I think that kind of streak is pretty rare on Spark. Come share troubles or lend a shoulder as befits your situation.
