Just do it!

Correction: 2021 is the Year of Me. Still working on my 2020 goal.

2020 is the Year of Me as I journey towards improved health and wellness. With a great Q1, Q2 & Q3 were overshadowed by stress eating from the pandemic. I am determined to finish Q4 strong, from my commitment and actions and Spark support and the Fall 5% Challenge. Q4 was a disappointment. Just started Winter 5% Challenge. Week 1: Lost 5#. My resolve feels strong. I WILL do this!

5% Challenge Programs. They keep me actively engaged.

Exercise 5 days for 30 min; 2 days for 10 min

Eat a healthy balanced 1200 - 1555 calories daily. 5 of 7 days will be 1100 calories or less. Holidays, family events, vacation option: max daily calories=weight x 15 calories.
Snacks are healthy choices and if not, VERY limited
No eating past 7p.

Personal Information:
Happily married with 3 terrific grown boys, 4 lovely grandkids. Took an early retirement in 2009, which presented many new lifestyle changes. Have a bookkeeping business going that has me working much too much; watch 6 yr old granddaughter 2 days weekly and grand toddler the same 2 days....and still must make time for my client work, so I am very busy all of the time.

Other Information:
Enjoy time with family and friends, mini vacations, a little gardening, online jigsaw puzzles, and when time permits reading. Recently got interested in watercolor after a class...haven't really found the time to continue this interest.

    Thanks for stopping by my Spark Blog and leaving a comment. I live on the West Coast of Africa so my time zone is 5 hours ahead of NY. I get up early, sometimes at 3am... so I'm the first on the P.B. team, in fact on almost all my teams, to Huddle. One gal in Asia beats me on one of my teams. Have a Blessed Easter.

    It's a deal! I promise to stay within my calories today too!

    emoticon Have a light dinner and if you are still hungry a small snack before bed. Drink a lot of water too!

    I have between 400 and 800 left today. I am on the West Coast though, so it is only 12pm here. I just finished a yummy lunch. Salad and a bean and cheese burrito with tomatoes on a whole grain tortilla. Delicious!

    Yay for our long walks today emoticon

    We do ROCK don't we! emoticon

    Keep up the good work!!
