I am doing a re-start. I have been slowly gaining weight and weigh more now than I have in several years--I am over 160. This is a number I did NOT want to EVER SEE AGAIN. I don't want to be here--so am going to get serious again. I am doing the 5% Challenge for the Fall--I know that the challenge helps me! It will start Sept. 24 but I am getting started now.

My goal for 2016 is a theme--I want to look good and feel better (continuation of 2015) AND I want to be more mindful so will do meditation and maybe yoga. This hasn't been going well so I will also recommit to the meditation--I think it WILL help.

I know I am more toned than I was -- I am in size 10 instead of 14. I am going to get back down to 152. I will try to do no sugar/cookies/baked goods,/candy but that IS really hard for me. It is also hard to have just a little bit--so I need to try "cold turkey". I have stopped with the alcohol, less bread, etc but it has not been helping. I got to do 6 sessions of personal training with a gym run by 2 Russian guys--REALLY saw improvements but can't afford the $$.

I am RE-COMMITTING to my health and well being!!

My Goals:
to get back to 155--or even 149

to look and feel much younger than my years!

to motivate my husband to join me in exercising

My Program:
I am doing a class 5 days a week (2 are focusing on ST). I commit to 7K steps but will work to get 10K if I can.

I am tracking my food and learning more about what to cook and how much! My "diet" is lots of veggies, protein and complex carbs!

Personal Information:
I live in NJ with my hubby of 37 years. I have 3 DDs.

I ran 2 5Ks in 2014--that was my goal and I met it! I don't plan to do too much more running but will do at least 2 weeks of skiing in Feb in CO.

Other Information:
My 3 DDs live in CA, Iowa and Ohio--only one is "settled"--the others will be moving. We are trying to decide where we will end up--NJ is NOT our retirement state.
