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.

    Waking up in the morning, your mind is at peace.
    Within a split second, all the memories of yesterday come rushing back in.
    Choose to take a few minutes and think of all the great things that are in your life right now.
    Keep your mind busy with as many great “right now” thoughts as you can.

    A smile that begins as an effort and a pretense
    quickly grows to become genuine,
    and given time, a habit of happiness.

    Inner Smile Exercise:
    1. Close your eyes.
    2. Breath slowly, deeply, and consciously.
    3. Set the corners of your mouth in just the slightest smile.
    4. Visualize your smile growing larger and larger, and your happiness increasing.
