My goals for 2020 are:
1) lose 24 pounds, that is just 2 pounds/month and very doable
2) improve my eating habits, avoid carbs, and lower my A1C
3) do an overnight hike with hubby, while I do camp, I have never done an overnight hike
4) increase sales in my ETSY shop by adding at least 1 item a month from stash

I will be doing 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day, and strength train at least twice a week.

My Program:
I love hike, and try to get 10 miles a week. That isn't always possible, so we have a treadmill for bad weather. I have also had to adjust my diet for a fatty liver condition and pre-diabetes. To do that I will limit processed and prepared foods, concentrating instead on preparing my own meals from scratch with natural products.

I'm a member of the 5% Challenge Casual Travelers team. I've made many friends and received encouragement and support over the past year.



Personal Information:
I am semi-retired and love to spend my time sewing and making quilts. It can be difficult balancing sewing time and exercise time, but that is what life is all about.


Other Information:
State of the Stash:
2019 net: +2.5
2020 to date: +97.5

    May you always have walls for the winds,
    a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
    laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
    and all your heart might desire.

    HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY

    CONGRATULATIONS on your SEVENTH WEEK, Casual Traveler!

    We've now put 7 weeks behind us in our journey and we made it to Madagascar, logging a
    total of 7,620 exercise miles, 1,310 points for Team No Evening Eating as well as 1,180 points for Team Cut Calories. Thank you for posting all your ITINERARY updates before the deadline!

    3 folks missed the weigh in deadline, 1 person was excused, 7 people stayed the same AND We logged 14 losses!! WEIGH TO GO!!!

    Well done! We've had a nice challenge, overall! Be proud of yourself for making it this far!!
    Also for sticking with it and what you have accomplished, regardless of your results!! You're here on the last day before the final weigh in and you're still active on all levels!

    I hope you were all very excited about this, the eighth week of our journey!!

    During week 8, our plane is still in the air and headed toward Sicily, 4,439 miles away and we've about 1,050 1,050 miles to go before we land. This is our last and shortest flight for this challenge.

    This trip's living the good life challenge (LTGL) was blogging because it can have positive effects on weight loss journeys. It can tell your story, help you work through tough spots,
    and let you toot your own horn! You can share what works for you and what doesn't. so many things to be shared, to be said!! For tis LGTL, you've been logging 10 points per day if you blog and 0 if you do not because this is
    another all or nothing challenge.

    This week again was no evening eating: 10 points if you were successful; 0 points if not. This is also an all or nothing challenge.

    Please remember exercise has a daily maximum of 120 minutes; each minute is 1 mile and exercise should be reported after completion.

    As shared before, we're a very supportive, no pressure team but we do want everyone to participate to the best of their abilities. Please make sure to log all of your LTGL points &
    exercise miles for the day as often as possible; the sooner our points are posted, the sooner we land our plane.

    We, the casual Travelers, are one of more than 10 teams trying to reach our destination before anyone else. Also keep in mind that at the latest any/all Week 8 points need to be posted before 11:59PM Friday, March 6th.

    I hope you had fun and enjoy this final leg of the journey!! For your In flight Entertainment, we offer a fun and ever changing category for the several games. Please make sure to check the In flight Fun area!!

    Every Saturday, a new and optional Wellness Challenge for self care Saturday will be offered that will include a few mini challenges that focus on mind body and soul.

    I also hope you had a great week, had fun with the challenge and made sure to visit the team forum to stay up on current affairs.

    Have an incredibly wonderful Friday!!!
