Online Class


Did you notice the new image to the right? Move More, Eat Well. It is an online class - I have never taken one before! I embarked upon the task of losing 70 pounds two years ago and did a good job of losing it. That was my first goal with another 10 pounds to go in the back of my mind. Technically I was good at the top part of my weight range because that gives me a BMI of less than 25. However I wanted to be in the middle of my weight range to look a little better in a bathing suit since I am in one for 4 months of the year. I have only been at the bottom of my weight range when I was much younger and actually was very ill and didnt know it and that is why I managed to be so thin! That is another conversation I will spare you :) Anyway I "know it all" when it comes to eating, food, diet and exercise. I have lost 50 pounds or more at least 6 times, worked for weight watchers for several years and I read articles every single day about all of the above. I can say this much, yoyo dieting does make it tricky to lose weight. That is why I want to break the cycle, stay fit and eat well. I have done that for the most part but I am finding a few pounds creeping back on so I must stop it now. The funny thing is I saw this on another blog, looked into it and because it is scrapbooking related decided it would be a good way to keep this front and center in my life this year. I watched her video and other than smoking (never have) we have the same story becoming a runner and all! So I ordered my notebook and page protectors, printed out the first steps and am really looking forward to this adventure. All except the measuring part :) (She did say this was optional!) The picture of the shoes is the first thing she had us do - take a picture of our exercise shoes. Why 4? Well three are the shoes I have worn out running and the other are my Zumba shoes so that's what I wanted in my notebook. I might share a bit of it here and there but for the most part, back to card making. Thanks for reading my little story! May you Move More and Eat Well this year.

Well, keep walking doggies and feeding the geese :) Always go for at least one 3 mile walk a day :) Which shoes are the most comfortable?

The Asics, orange and white ones. Still my favorite! Have to get walking shoes now instead.

Sounds like an interesting class. I am trying to decide what I should do for weight loss. Thought about WW but just not sure.
