Participant in the Fall 5% Challenge on the Starfish team.

Member Since: 1/1/2017

Fitness Minutes: 4,051

My Goals:
Lose 2 pounds a week. By being consistent in my efforts, I will be 52 pounds lighter 6 months from now.

My Program:
Food: Eat anything I want, BUT: (1) watch portions, (2) record everything in my SP food tracker, and (3) and stay within the recommended calorie range. I find I do better when I don't put anything totally off-limits, but I will aim for more protein, fruits, and veggies, and less fat, sweets, and other empty calories. I will limit my consumption of draft beer! :-)

Exercise: (1) Walk a minimum of 30 minutes per day, even if it's broken up into small chunks, (2) record everything in my SP exercise tracker, and (3) use Runkeeper to track distance and location for extra motivation, so that I meet my goal of 85+ miles during the Challenge. I will aim at a walk every lunch and after work. I will also look for ways to fit in more steps, such as parking further away and taking the stairs, just because those are healthy habits, but I won't count that as part of my exercise.

Personal Information:
- Grew up in Ohio, lived a while in NYC, now in Southern California
- Married for 28 years to the love of my life
- Mom to 4 kids, ages 17 to 26, 3 of whom are home with me (to my delight!)
