Good food, good company .
Relaxing swim on a holiday!
Family fun in the rain.
Staying healthy is hard work and takes time, but it is fun, too. I want to stay knowledgeable about health and weight issues and have realistic goals for myself. I want to get to a healthy weight and have fun doing it.
I have signed up for the 2016 Summer 5% challenge which starts on June 25th. I plan to concentrate on my weight loss goals this summer, even with company staying with us most of that time.
Counting calories and exercising 6 days a week for at least and hour will be my way to achieve my goals.
The Fall % challenge is starting soon and I plan to stay active and eat well, counting calories. Two exercise classes, walking the dog with my husband and walking with friends will be fun. Gardening will be part of my plan this fall, too. The weather could be a challenge, more than in the summer, but I hope to ignore it. I am hoping to have the results I had in the summer.
After the summer challenge, I swam across our lake, a little over 1 KM., with my husband keeping track in a canoe close by. I am thankful that I am healthy and can do that.
Now, I do a "challenging for me" Barre class that is hard, but after a few weeks, I notice that it is easier for me. Then I know it is helping.
I would like to stay healthy and active and losing some weight would enhance those goals.
I love to cook and eat. We enjoy healthy foods and treats sometimes, too. I need to watch portions.
I enjoy a variety of exercises, indoors and out, but even being mainly retired, I have trouble finding time for everything on the "must do" list and the "would like to do" list.
We enjoy living in a rural setting that is abundant with wildlife. We have mountains, lakes and forests at our doorstep, perfect for walks and hikes and snowshoeing in winter.
Travelling to visit family and friends is fun, too , as well as
Doing renovations lately to our home is quite creative, but messy, too. The results are great, though, thanks to my husband.
We look forward to gardening this year and hope each year we will get better at it. I love the flowers especially, but also fresh cherries, strawberries, raspberries, herbs and salad ingredients.
