Just do it!

Correction: 2021 is the Year of Me. Still working on my 2020 goal.
I have shed 20# and 15 inches and am at pre-pandemic weight and getting closer to my 2020 goal. No magic: "just do it!"

2020 is the Year of Me as I journey towards improved health and wellness. With a great Q1, Q2 & Q3 were overshadowed by stress eating from the pandemic. I am determined to finish Q4 strong, from my commitment and actions and Spark support and the Fall 5% Challenge. Q4 was a disappointment. Just started Winter 5% Challenge. Week 1: Lost 5#. My resolve feels strong. I WILL do this!

5% Challenge Programs. They keep 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 1100 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 same 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, online jigsaw puzzles, and when time permits reading. Recently got interested in watercolor after a class...haven't really found the time to continue this interest.

    The scent of August:
    Bright sunlit skies, nature’s warm colors,
    and the smell of seasons are about to change.

    The hint of new beginnings,
    knowing something wonderful is around the bend.
