I am long standing member of Sparkpeople. My goals are listed below:

1) Drink 8 glasses of water/day -- this is a goal that I have to stretch to reach since I just sip my water throughout the day.

2) Track my nutrition intake using the Sparkpeople tracker.

3) Track my calories burned using the Sparkpeople fitness tracker.

4) Eat at least 5 fruits/veggies per day.

5) Exercise 5-6 days/wk for a minimum of 30 minutes on cardio days, and 20 minutes for strength training.

I a First Place 4 Health Member and have lost 10 pounds in 12 weeks. God is first place in my life and is helping me to make the right choices to stay healthy, fit and live a good life.

Member Since: 4/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 43,258

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to be energetic and feel the best that I can to live life to the fullest.

My Program:
My plan is to exercise 5-6 days a week for at least 30 minutes and do strength training 2-3 days a week. My favorite exercise is interval training, which alternates cardio with strength training. My plan is to do interval training Monday, Wednesday and Friday and walk, jog and bike on the weekends. I am drinking smoothies with no sugar for breakfast; low carb lunches to keep my energy up during the work day; one or two healthy snacks and a well balanced dinner.

Personal Information:
I am 60 years old and a teacher. I have a faithful husband who loves to bicycle with me and walk together. I have a beautiful and talented 21 year old daughter, and a cute shi-poo named Biscuit.

    The flowers and blossoms are filling the air with the smells of Spring. This is the time to start preparing for the Summer. Are you ready to join a Challenge? The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges. These challenges can be modified to fit individual needs, allowing members of all abilities and dietary needs to participate.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “

    If you would like to be a member of this challenge you can copy and paste the the link below, or click on my username and leave me a message or click on the BLUE BIGGEST LOSER Icon on my page. Join the team and sign up for the next challenge on the Spring Waitlist thread.
