The Flylady (flylady.net) taught me that "I can do anything for 15 minutes" (declutter, clean, exercise). It was certainly gratifying when I discovered how stressed I was when I was living in clutter and how a quick change of attitude and 15 mins. would let me soar.

Now it's time to extend this motto to all other health related aspects of my life. In particular, I need to accept the philosophy in relation to food/fitness--WELLness!

My Program:
Simple: Baby-steps for me. Eat in moderation and exercise regularly (both cardio and strength building). I refuse to set enormous goals for myself that feel overwhelming. I just wish to focus on short, baby-steps that seem within grasp and CELEBRATE each accomplishment.



Personal Information:


Other Information:
"If you feel like quitting, ask yourself why you began. For the Health of It!"

"5K--the gateway drug."

"Progress, not perfection."

"The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before."

"Make every day count and live purposefully, live energetically, live completely. "

"A healthy lifestyle is a process that never stops changing and unfolding, not a predetermined goal you have to reach. Everything is part of that process—good days and bad days, successes and failures, gains and losses, pleasure and pain—and the only thing that can really get in your way is trying to ignore or deny what your own experience can teach you. Don’t waste time regretting or clinging to anything—learn and move on." [DebbieKay1]

"If you had gone running when you first thought about it, you would be back by now."

    I like the activity tracker. Was a little obsessed with it at first, but that has slowed down. I still put it on my shoe every day and reach my goal of 6000 steps most days. I always find it difficult to stay on track this time of year, and this year is no exception. Maybe it's keeping me on track a bit more. I know I use the stairs a lot more than I did.

    My commitment will begin April 15th after all the sun and sand has gone. I have to get in shape for my health and my 30 year reunion this summer! Hoping for better bloodwork in July.
