2019 ~ Thankful for SP and friends, for ongoing inspiration from leaders and team mates of 100 DWL and Beck studies, 5% Challenges, for good health and so many other blessings!

2018 ~ Continuing to move forward, balancing a healthy and fit lifestyle with staying present, thankful, positive with growing awareness that "knowledge is power. What we think and believe is more powerful than we realize".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2017~ Is all about Choices...My choices. I know I must continue Sparking and making those daily choices that I set in place in 2016 that help me to be as fit and healthy as possible to maintain my goal weight.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2016 ~ My goals this year are:
To slow down, be mindful when eating my food ~ focusing on plant based, whole foods, avoiding sugar and processed foods. . Add more steps to my day.

Keep challenging myself by taking classes in yoga teacher training, add more fun exercise with bike.riding,swimming...

I will try my best everyday to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. NO more beating myself up and NO more quitting...ever.

"It's not the mountain we conquer,
But ourselves." unknown

May 14, 2013 I completed part 1 of a 3 part yoga teacher training program
2015~ Completed 2nd part of yoga teacher training
Earned CYI credential~ Certified yoga instructor
2016~Taking part 3 of yoga teacher training
2017~Continue teaching yoga and water aerobics

Reach out to others to encourage and be encouraged for success.

To get light enough, fit enough and strong enough to play tennis again!


My Program:
Most critical for maintenance is little to no sugar, white flour or processed foods. I do eat some but I start to crave them and to gain if I eat very much. I have free range eggs almost everyday. I get most of my fat from avocados, (lucky to have my own much of the year) olive or coconut oil. I eat as many veggies as possible and a lot of seasonal fruits.

I track steps and have a goal of 8-10K daily which I meet much of the time but no beating myself up when I do not.

I continue to give my body a rest from food 10 to 14 hours each night

Visit SP daily

Mostly plant based diet

Cultivate healthy life style habits like drinking enough water, less snacking and intuitive eating. Food Tracking when necessary for challenges or weight creep.

Exercise~Water aerobics, yoga, strength training, walking

    "Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
    -Stephen Cherniske

    "The first step to living the life you want is leaving the life you don't want.
    Taking the first step forward is always the hardest.
    But then each step forward gets easier and easier.
    Each step forward gets you closer and closer until eventually, what had once been invisible starts to be visible.
    And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible."

    "Today is a new day. It's a day you have never seen before and will never see again.
    Stop telling yourself the 'same crap, different day' lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you?
    Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day, you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go.”
