I have always struggled with my weight, usually it was just 15-20 extra lbs. When I 1st joined Sparkpeople in 2009 I had not yet reached my pre-pregnancy weight. Now after a stressful 12 months (unemployment & health issues with my dad & oldest son) I have passed that mark. This year I am determined to do SOMETHING. I am going to set small goals for myself and reward myself healthfully. I am going to truly smile and not try to hide my "chins." This will be my year starting today! Starting now!

My Goals:
6 lbs per month...

My Program:
I am adjusting to working 40 hours a week in 4 days. So I am taking it slow...

I have made arrangements to take a 10-minute walk while at work M-TH.

I have also found some Zumba workouts on YouTube that I will do M, W, F for 20-30 minutes. This will help until I buy the Zumba workout DVDs.

I will do strength training 2 days a week for at least 20 minutes.

Eating 5 meals a day:

6:30/7:00 am Breakfast (325 cal)

10:30/11 am Early Lunch (300 cal)

2:00/2:30 pm pm Late Lunch (300 cal)

6:30/7 pm Dinner (450 cal)

8:30pm Evening Snack
(100 cal)

Eat between 1210-1610 calories each day.

I plan to write at least 1 blog per week - usually on Friday night as a summary of my week.

    Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but
    approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.
    And everyone deserves a little sunshine.

    I embrace emerging experience, I participate in discovery.
    I am a butterfly. I am not a butterfly collector.
    I want the experience of the butterfly.
