My Goals:

1. Join a challenge
2. Track my food and stay within my calories
3. Exercise daily
4. Include at least 3 days of strength training per week, 20-30 minutes.
5. Weigh in weekly
6. Maintain +/- 3% of my Goal Weight of 130


My Program:
My food plan is to follow a balanced diet and try to meet the optimum grams of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, fat and milligrams of sodium, and be within my calorie range. Focusing on Fruits and especially VEGETABLES, and laying off the sweets!



Personal Information:
www.fitbit.com/user/42744H
My fitness tracker is not connected with my calorie adjustment. If I'm exercising too much, I'll adjust it manually. I think fitbit calories are overstated.


Other Information:
I have a chronic bad ankle - I am unable to do any running. Walking and hiking are OK. Riding a bicycle is fine.
I work full time as a bookkeeper. I use a stand-up desk so that I'm not sitting all day.

    Some people are in your life to test you, until you stand up and say enough is Enough ! I AM worth more than you offer.
    Gift yourself the same love and encouragement you would a friend/love one in time of need.

    Have a great weekend and Happy 4th

    Happy June,
    What does it mean to you?
    For me, I embrace the longer days, I get to put in my vegetable garden and grow food.
    I am in awe of what one tiny little seed can do in such a short span of time.
    Each and every one of us are Seeds..
    our thoughts are the seed,
    our belief puts it into action
    our thoughts and choices day by day bring to us what we desire.
    What do you desire?
