I am a busy (who isn't?), happily married ,self-employed mother of two very energetic little boys. My weight loss goals are to improve the quality of my life by lowering my risk of diseases that run in my family like hypertenstion, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. I owe it to myself and my family to stay healthy...And, of course, I want to look HOT!

I am back with new GOALS for 2010!

I took a Spark break for what feels like a LONG time. I am back with new goals for myself. I am refocusing with sound nutrition and effective workouts!

April 2010 Goals

Theme: Progress not perfection! (Keeping this theme!)

1. PLAN my meals for the the day in the morning. This works for me if I just take a few minutes to plan the day.
2. Keepa food journal. I was usign Spark to track my nutrition but it was starting to wear on me...LOL! I write everthing down.
3. Eat clean, and metabolically correct for my metabolic type...I am a protein type. I do allow myself a cheat meal once a week.
4. Take my supplements
5. Watch my sodium intake
6. Drink my water
7. Reread Schwarzbein Books which have helped me in the past. It's balanced clean nutrition of real food with controlled carbs. I am going to experiment with this and modify to fit me.

1. PLAN the week out . Don't panic if the things don't work out flexible and adjust as needed.
2. Keep up weight training journal (paper) to track progress. This is really helping me!
4. HIIT cardio 20-30 minutes 3x week.
5. 2 upper body and two lower body weight training sessions. (I have two more weeks on this plan and then changing up.

Self and Spirit
1. Journal
2. Quiet time daily
3. Take care of me
4. Declutter project
5. Get enough sleep

Other Goals:
Finish what I start!

    hi Linda,
    so back to our ORIGINAL meeting place. Yup, I've been gone...but want to get myself back on track too. Gosh it's been a roller coaster at times. I got discouraged seeing the same weight no matter what I did. Now, I want to focus a bit more again and see if I can lean out a bit. mostly to climb hills when I do these cycling events. So, you have permission to give me gentle nudges or a good kick in the pants. LOL

    You look great, and the difference is noticeable. I really can tell with your new haircut pics on FB how hard you've worked. And your spirit inside is just beaming. Keep up the good work, Linda.

    I went to Power Yoga today at The Power of Your Om....I LOVED IT! Probably the best power yoga AND yoga class I've ever had. I'm never leaving! Thanks for telling me about it. I am giving you credit for all of these new finds by the way. You seem to know where all the cool kids hang out ;)

    Alright, I'm officially addicted to this page. Spark People is the new Facebook :) I spent a couple hours educating myself on the website and how it works. Not to mention I've been tracking all day...and what a difference! My next step - get to that yoga studio! Thanks again and I'm glad you liked the workout today!
