This Rockin Red Fox is Looking forward to the Spring Into Fitness challenge!

Yikes, I've gained weight! Time to get serious again and I think Spring is always a time of renewal and new beginnings so.....I'm on it! Re-committed, Clear-eyed, and resolute!

My program includes at least some intentional exercise every day, drinking 8 glasses of water daily and staying within my SparkPeople calorie range. I also want to get back to walking, no more hobbling along, my goal by the time this challenge starts is to walk at least 1 mile daily and I want to keep it up throughout the challenge.

Still double-teaming against the pounds! Can't forget my wonderful 100 days of Weight Loss with Linda Spangle team. This book and the team have changed my life. Awesome lessons in this book!

I continue to live IN each day! It is way too easy for me to allow a day to slide by with little accomplished and without taking any time to savor life. Not doing that any more!

I've lost weight with TOPS, SparkPeople, my SparkFriends,the Foxes and now will continue to move forward I want to get back to goal weight. Right now I am 14 lbs above goal weight. I love the support that I get from all my Sparkfriends and teams, but I have to say that to have a 20+ member team that is consistently supportive of each member and have the participation, caring and sharing that we have on the Rockin Red Foxes is a rare and beautiful thing. A year ago I met my TOPS goal, but I've been on an upward spiral the past few months. My goal weight of 145 is realistic and I need to remind myself of that.

Because of my Myasthenia Gravis the doctors say that exercise is my enemy right now. I have to very carefully plan never to exercise to the point of fatigue...difficult when I start the day fatigued and never feel strong. That will change though.

Basically I'm just not quitting! I'm still trying to live mindfully and to be as healthy as possible.


Member Since: 1/7/2009

My Goals:
Long Term Goal: To be a very healthy, very old woman, surrounded by great-grandchildren and still living independently and enjoying my life. I want to be as healthy as I can be at age "almost seventy". I want to maintain my weight loss and even lose another 5 lbs.


My Program:
Eat Wisely! Live fully in each day! Show Love and Kindness! Trust! Pray!
Stay within my spark calorie range and drink 8 glasses of water daily.
Intentional exercise at least 10 minutes daily!



Personal Information:
I grew up in North Dakota and attended the University of North Dakota for one year. Returned to college when I was 44 and graduated - now that felt good. I live in Ohio now. My husband was stationed here for his last Air Force assignment and we stayed in the area when he retired from the Air Force. I've retired as of January 1, 2011!!. I've met the goal of getting back to quilting finally. Two small projects completed recently. It keeps my hands too busy for food. I also love reading, spending time with friends, and traveling occasionally.


Other Information:
My Mantra - Believe in Miracles. Forgive everyone. Life is not fair, but it is good. My Other Mantra: What doesn't kill you just doesn't kill you...the rest is up to you!

And we all should know this: "If every morning, You can find a reason to say, Yes, it's going to be a beautiful day. And every day, you find a reason to say, Yes, it is a beautiful day. And every night, you find a reason to say, Yes, it was a beautiful day. Then one day, You'll look back and easily say, Yes...it was a beautiful life."~ ~ Doe Zantamata ~ ~

    Chris went on to Keto diet. He said it works well for him. After his fiance died he put on a good bit of weight. I'm glad he's finally getting most of it back off.
