Just do it!

2019 is the Year of Me as I journey towards improved health and wellness. With a lackluster Q1, and a better Q2, it is still not too late to accomplish this goal.


Member Since: 9/23/2009

Fitness Minutes: 138,063

My Goals:
Live a healthy fit life, NEVER quit.

Though I have loved the 5% Challenges.....taking a break from them to try something new for rest of 2019

2014 Summer 5% Challenge Results:
(my best Challenge)

Weight: Lost 11#
Hips: Lost 2"
BMI 25.5 just short of goal to achieve healthy range of 25
WHR .72
Size: 12 (from sz 14)


My Program:
100 Days of Accountability, Ongoing Chapters

Plan "Can Do" list before the start of every day.

Find positives in every day.

Did many 5% Challenge Programs. They kept me actively engaged.

Exercise 5 days for 30 min; 2 days for 10 min

Eat a healthy balanced 1200 - 1555 calories daily. 5 of 7 days will be 1400 calories or less. Holidays, family events, vacation option: max daily calories=weight x 15 calories.
Snacks are healthy choices and if not, VERY limited
No eating past 7p.



Personal Information:
Happily married with 3 terrific grown boys, 4 lovely grandkids. Took an early retirement in 2009, which presented many new lifestyle changes. Have a bookkeeping business going that has me working much too much; watch 6 yr old granddaughter 2 days weekly and grand toddler the other 2 days....and still must make time for my client work, so I am very busy all of the time.


Other Information:
Enjoy time with family and friends, mini vacations, a little gardening, and when time permits reading. Recently got interested in watercolor after a class...haven't really found the time to continue this interest.

    Soon the leaves will all be turning,
    From their many shades of green,
    Into colors bright and gorgeous...
    Reds and yellows, browns and orange,
    Underneath the smiling sun,
    Each leaf vying with the other
    In the change they've now begun.
    Giving up their Summer wardrobes,
    Gladly; joyfully, with glee,
    Putting on their Autumn trousseau,
    As they leave their mother tree...
    ~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "The Wedding of the Leaves" (1940s)

    As I walk, as I walk.
    "The universe is walking with me.
    In beauty it walks before me.
    In beauty it walks behind me.
    In beauty it walks below me.
    In beauty it walks above me.
    Beauty is on every side.
    As I walk I walk with beauty.

    And movement is life.

    "Let us not get so busy or live so fast that we can't listen to the music of the meadow
    or the symphony that glorifies the forest.
    Some things in the world are far more important than wealth;
    one of them is the ability to enjoy simple things."
    - Dale Carnegie~

    "When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, its your world for the moment.
    I want to give that world to someone else.
    Most people rush around so, they have little time to look at a flower.
    I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

    “If it doesn’t make you feel fabulous:
    Don’t do it,
    Don’t buy it,
    Don’t wear it,
    Don’t eat it,
    Don’t keep it.”

    Hi Vicki. We still have unsafe air, so need to stay inside. They lifted the evacuations and opened our streets. Fire is away from us now but still burning towards other communities, forest falls, mountain home village. Just terrible all the hills are burned. But peoples homes are safe. I pray all the fires stop. emoticon
