My journey has begun with simple steps, over and over again...lol

I hope that by being relentless here, and keeping myself accountable- to myself! will help me stay on top of bad habits before they go too far...and will encourage me to strengthen the good habits!

I am at a point where despite my many set backs and "slips" I am actually seeing progress in the right direction! I am getting more involved, staying on SP and posting on a more regular basis. I believe being involved here is making a big difference. After a setback in May (poison ivy!) I am determined to pick up my exercise regime, in a way that I enjoy, not a "OMG I HAVE to do WHAT?!?" sort of way- which is entirely possible! I think by being here, and being involved, keeps me closer to staying on track than sheer determination!

Fitness Minutes: 8,837

My Goals:
My goal right now is to get below 350 by June 6, so I have incentive to renew my gym membership! When that goal is reached, I will set my next goal at 10% of what I weigh.


My Program:
~eat well, local, organic, and moderately clean/unprocessed.
~3xweek strength training
~3xweek aerobic (walk/jog until I can run!)



Personal Information:
I live in Southern Ohio. I have one adult son who has moved back home, and while it is great, it is still an adjustment. I work from home and find it way to easy to sit on my butt all day...I want to be fit, and healthy...I need to be- the best years of my life are still ahead of me!!!~


Other Information:
I stress eat. When I don't, I am finding all these weird and disgruntled emotions come out, and even through my tears I can laugh, because I am FEELING things again!
