Hi - I'm Marcia. I retired from teaching elementary school for 35 years. I am counting carbs and exercising in an attempt to prevent Diabetes. Maybe in the process I'll lose some weight too.

Member Since: 9/15/2012

Fitness Minutes: 52,810

My Goals:
-My first goal is to keep my carbs in check to prevent Diabetes.
-My next goal is to exercise 30 minutes a day for at least 5 days a week.
--My last goal is to lose 15 lbs by Oct 1,2015

My Program:
-I will count my carbs before I eat and make sure that I am staying within my healthy carb range of 45-50 carbs per meal and 15-20 carbs per snack. This includes 3 meals and 2-3 snacks a day.
-I will exercise for at least until 30 minutes a day. I will do cardio for at least 3 days and muscle strengthening for 2 days. I will walk in the evening on Mon Wed and Fri. On Tues & Thurs, I will do a Spark Fitness Exercise Video.
-By counting my carbs and exercising I should be able to lose 2 pounds a month. I will weigh myself at the end of every week to monitor my progress.

Personal Information:
When I retired, my vision of retirement was staying in bed all day, eating Bon-Bons, curled up with a good book. However, my retirement has been much more enjoyable! Instead, I have been changing diapers, cleaning up messes, watching �Yo, Gabba Gabba�, singing �Don�t Bite Your Friends�, playing �Horsie-cart� and reading �Hop On Pop� until I�m blue in the face!!! I LOVE every minute! I�m so thankful my daughter gave me this chance to stay at home with her kids and be a Stay-At-Home-Gma!!

Other Information:
