Working on a healthier body through smarter food choices, increased activity, and mindfulness.

Member Since: 1/1/2017

Fitness Minutes: 6,374

My Goals:
Lose 1 pound a week. By being consistent in my efforts, I will be 52 pounds lighter a year from now.

My Program:
Food: Eat anything I want, BUT: (1) watch portions, (2) record everything in my SP food tracker, and (3) stay within the recommended calorie range. I find I do better when I don't put anything totally off-limits, but I will aim for more protein, fruits, and veggies, and less fat, sweets, and other empty calories. I will limit my consumption of craft beer (although finding new breweries is something DH and I enjoy together)! :-)

Exercise: (1) Walk a minimum of 30 minutes per day, even if it's broken up into small chunks, (2) record everything in my SP exercise tracker, and (3) use Runkeeper to track distance and location for extra motivation.

Personal Information:
- Grew up in Ohio, lived a while in NYC, now in Southern California
- Married for 29 years to the love of my life
- Mom to 4 kids, ages 18 to 27, 2 of whom live at home (to my delight!) and 2 who are away at college
- Employed full-time in an office doing mostly computer work (sedentary)
- Have 3 cats and a dog
- Enjoy reading, watching Netflix, hiking

Other Information:
Weight Leader for the 2020 Winter 5% Challenge. This is my first time being involved on a team in a leadership capacity and I'm looking forward to helping out. I really enjoy the 5% challenges and find them very motivating.

Right now I'm dealing with my mom's ill health, which has been stressful, and one of the things I think the Challenge will help with is reminding me to take care of myself as well. "Put on your own oxygen mask first!"
