My healthier ME journey

I am a 57 years old and live in the northern tip of NH. My goals have changed a lot lately. I am learning to like the person on the inside. She is someone that I want to get to know. I am also waiting for a hip replacement. My mobility is down to almost nothing and is driving me nuts.

I am a 57 years old and live in the northern tip of NH. My goals have changed a lot lately. I am learning to like the person on the inside. She is someone that I want to get to know. I am also waiting for a hip replacement. My mobility is down to almost nothing and is driving me nuts.

I also have goals that aren't weight, exercise or nutrition related with is totally new for me. I have discovered hiking and I love it.

My goals for this summer are:
1 Be able to walk a 5K again by the end of the summer.

2. Go kayaking at least once this summer.

3. Go hiking again with my friend Mary at least once this summer. Should be interesting since she had knee replacements and I am having a hip replacement!
***********
My long term goals are:
1. I will stay within my calorie range of 1320 (or slightly less)-1670 calories a day.

2. I will log everything I eat (good or bad). I will also strive to increase my fiber intake.

3. I will do 30 minutes of cardio on good days and no more than15 minutes on not so good days - 6 days a week-no excuses. Anything extra is a bonus!

4. I will strength train a minimum of 3 times a week-no excuses.

5. I will work to improve my mobility issues and become stronger along the way.

6. I will track my fitness on a daily basis.

7. I will make every effort to reach my 5% goal
.
8. I blog at least 2 times a week.

10. I will post these goals in a place where I can see them on a daily basis.

11. I will weigh-in weekly.

U r such a very good gal. TY for all the amazing support through the past months around the "latest scare". Let's hope this is the last of all scares. There's so much living I want to do.

Today we have the Kingdom Hall cleaning, followed by watching a video, lol since it's not an official meeting, yeah!! I don't have to Wear a skirt!!! Yippee!!! Usually on Saturday, Margie and I have her study, she's doing amazing!!! But, since I'm busy,we 'll meet either Sunday or sometime this week.

I hope you totally enjoy today, perhaps getting in some walking. Please do not do too much.

Hugs!!!
