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

Maintain between 147 to 152

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

    “You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away.
    It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”

    I hope February is off to a healthy start for you, Spark friend! Remember to be your own Valentine! Keep your self talk positive, and love yourself for who you are now, not ten or however many pounds from now. You're worth it!
    Hugs,

    “You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. It's possible to treat yourself with outrageous kindness beginning today.
    Compulsive eating is only the symptom; believing that you are not worth your own love is the problem.
    Go for the love. You will never be sorry.”

    "If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination.
    The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!"

    "Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"

    "In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions.
    It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently."

    Keep working hard to reach your goals, Spark friend. And remember that the choices you make every day will either take you one step closer to your goals...or one step further away. Make the right choice...you know you're worth the effort, right?
