One thing we were challenged to do is to update our SparkPage and post some goals.
I. I am doing the SP 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge
2. Walk 10 minutes a day, building up to 30 min a day in 10 min segments (Achilles calcification tendonitis requires this) Mon - Sat
3. ST 2-3 days a week M,W, and/or F

1. Eat less, move more
2. Eat a variety of foods, minimum of 5 Freggies & 8 glasses of water daily
3. Measure portions weekly to be sure my eyes are truthful
4. Chips maximum of 2 times per week (My comfort food)
5. Recipes ready
6. Grocery List & Shopping weekly
7. A variety of foods already on hand, perishables purchased as needed
8. I've followed this plan before & was successful when sticking to the plan & fitness
9. Can't clean a lot out of the kitchen because of DH, but I can practice self-control (that's why I need challenges-accountability)

Personal Information:
I am a Christian who is truly blessed. God has given me a great life! I usually don't give out personal info unless I know someone, but I have just given the most important info about me.
I have a great husband and sons who are an encouragement to me on this journey.

Other Information:
I love to read for relaxation, or information, or anything else. My husband tells people I'll read anything, but that's not true:) I haven't read the dictionary or the encyclopedia from cover to cover. I am learning to quilt, but it is slow going due to 3 part-time jobs & life.

    We are on our 3rd week, wishing you a successful week and success doing the WEC:

    “Don't Just

    Don't just learn, experience.
    Don't just read, absorb.
    Don't just change, transform.
    Don't just relate, advocate.
    Don't just promise, prove.
    Don't just criticize, encourage.
    Don't just think, ponder.
    Don't just take, give.
    Don't just see, feel.
    Don’t just dream, do.
    Don't just hear, listen.
    Don't just talk, act.
    Don't just tell, show.
    Don't just exist, live.”
