Here is my ever developing strategy from this day forward and through the challenge:

1.Increase my strength sessions to 35 minutes per session, 3x per week. GOAL met - my sessions are 40 min long and I am keeping it there for now(6/28/16)

Still continuing to get to make 2-9 into habits as of 6/28/16

2. Make a point of checking in on my challenge teams on a more regular basis -- at least 3x per week rather than 1 or no time per week.
3 Read and respond to teammates blogs when time permits.
4. Check Friend Feed and respond on a mostly daily basis.
5. Blog at least once a week on how I am progressing.
6. Become more proactive about planning healthy meals -
7. Make a copy of these strategies and goals so that I can:
8. Review this set of goals daily.
9. Revise and tweak monthly as necessary throughout 2016.


10. Keep on pushing no matter what!!! as of 6/28/16 - still pushing and getting ever so slowly closer to my healthy weight!!!

Goals revised 1/25/16

My Goals:
My goals are simple:
Exercise consistently and reach a healthy weight.
I am aiming for a variety of exercise including but not limited to walking, Zumba and Zumba for Wii, Yoga,Kettlebells, and lifting weights for strength.

My specific goal is to reach my healthy weight 5 pounds at a time with Tuesday's being my "official" day to track that downward path. Will have other weigh-in days depending on what challenges I am participating in.



My Program:
For my Challenges :
accumulate at least 400 minutes of exercise activity weekly.

Include a variety of aerobic exercise, balancing exercises daily and strength training striving for no less than 3x per week for no less than 20 min per session.





Personal Information:
I live in upstate WNY with my husband of 38 years as of April 2016 :) and our 11 year old Beagle Oliver(the Happy Digger)

I do a lot of volunteering including tutoring Math for grade school and adult learners. I also sometimes take care of other people's dogs and sometimes cats.
We just happily became Grandparents on Thanksgiving Day 2016 to a beautiful little girl named Penelope.


Other Information:
I enjoy doing many things including crossword puzzles,Jumbles, playing word games and just plain strategy games on my DS, Sudoku, reading, working with plastic canvas, crocheting, gardening, walking dogs and just plain learning.

    “Forget love… I’d rather fall in chocolate!” ~Unknown

    If you aren’t being treated with love and respect, check your price tag.
    Maybe you’ve marked yourself down.
    It’s YOU who tells people what you’re worth.
    Get off of the "clearance rack" and get behind the glass
    where they keep the valuables.
