I had something really neat happen to me recently! My gym asked if I would be in their fitness column in our base newspaper (NAS Corpus Christi). I am sooo honored. It really meant a lot to me. ❤️ inspire and be inspired.

January 2020

Hi Friends! Welcome!

I’m a 10+ year Sparker!

I got serious about my health and fitness after I became ill and quit smoking cigarettes 10 years ago. I joined SparkPeople and have been working on myself ever since.

I’ve done lots of different fitness and nutrition plans over the years and have found lifting weights, counting macros (higher protein, lower carbs and fat) and running produces the best results for me.
My biggest loss since being on Spark is 23 pounds. I am now a maintainer, striving to keep my weight within a 5 pound range I have set for myself.

I’m almost 52 and struggle with chronic pain issues and frequent injuries, but I just keep on keeping on every single day. I’m otherwise in the best shape of my life. Consistency is the key to big changes.

My word for 2020 is “ACTION”. I am a self proclaimed procrastinator and can find myself becoming rather lazy. The opposite of lazy to me is ACTION. My goal is to take ACTION and be more productive in all areas of my world.

    Thanks for you encouragement on my blog. Who knew changing up my diet would affect my body in a negative way! I guess I thought I would join WW and it would solve all of my problems. emoticon

    Have a great weekend!!

    I always enjoy your blogs!!

    My WW isn't going so smoothly this week. I think I've hit a bump in the road where my nutrition might be less than what I need to workout. (No offense to anyone!) WW is designed for people who are older than myself and it doesn't really take into accounts intense workouts. I try to knock it out of the park b/t 4 and 5 days a week. I think I'm not eating enough carbs to help me rebound from my runs, etc. So overall things are still progressing I'm just gonna have to tweak WW to make it work for my lifestyle!

    Thanks for checking on me and I hope you are feeling better today!!
