Back in March 2020, I hit my goal. Then, CoVid hit. I am a teacher. Teaching from home while quarantined was the most frustrating and stressful thing I have ever had to do. We were required to sit in front of a blank computer every afternoon for office hours. The boredom was horrendous. So, I started reading my mother's old cookbook. I started cooking some of those old recipes and eating some of that delicious and fattening food. That lead me down a detour that was necessary to get through those rough times. Around September, I realized that I had gained 15 pounds. Or the CoVid 15 as my doctor called it. So, here I am, back on the right road.

My Goals:
My long range goal is a healthy BMI. My short term goal is 145 pounds.

My Program:
Right now, I am paying attention to my habits and slowly trying to break them. I am cutting carbs by 10% more each week and increasing my steps 10% more each week. I like to set up little challenges for myself each month.

Personal Information:
I live in the foothills of North Carolina near Lake Hickory. I am so blessed to live in such a beautiful area. I can be at the beach in four hours, a big city in a little more than an hour, and the mountains in 20 minutes. I get the best of all worlds.

Other Information:
We are undergoing a life-style change at my house. My 22-year-old daughter has graduated from college and landed a full-time job. However, entry-level positions in her field do not pay a lot of money, so she is living with us for now. This is a stressful time as we adjust to our new normal.
