The journey continues! I'm always dealing with with the constant struggles of balancing a healthy diet and exercise, but it's actually getting easier and easier as I learn more, read more and love myself more. I wear my FitBit Sense everyday and am doing the best I can to get to my goal weight. Once I hit "Onederland" my spouse and I are going to Disney!! The phrase I say to myself everyday is "I love myself, inside and out, just as I am." I've also adopted a new mantra! "I'm Dedicated, Deserving, Determined and Disciplined". I've been feeling stuck more often than not, but I am working on my optimal health in every way I can.

Fitness Minutes: 76,845

My Goals:
-To lose at least 1lb/week
-To Walk everyday, whether it's on the treadmill or outside
-To get at least 5,000 steps everyday
-To drink at least one 1L bottle of water at work
-To prepare my lunch and breakfast in the evening

My Program:
I've got a great streak of going for a walk everyday. (I recently reached 200 days in a row!!) It's usually between 25 & 60 mins depending on my energy level. My walks are also mainly outside, but I have had to use a treadmill a few times. Recently I've started adding strength workouts to my routine roughly once a week. I've been doing a 2 minute plank every morning and am working on increasing my water and veggie intake. I weigh in weekly in the morning.

Personal Information:
I live in Murillo (Thunder Bay), Ontario, Canada with my spouse of 15 year. I am an Administrative Assistant/Client Care Specialist at at Psychology Clinic (so I spend a lot of time sitting on my butt!). Prior to the pandemic, I used to pet sit on the side because I really love animals. I try to read at least one book a month and am always looking for reading material on health.

Other Information:
I've got a Fitbit Sense and like to keep track of different streaks. It's been over 1 year since I had Fast-food!
