Reading some blogs and other articles recently - my head is not sure how or what to do next in terms of "setting goals"...

But maybe...

Getting more focused on doing (or re-doing) those activities back into my life??

My Goals:
I've never really been at a "normal" weight for my age. It's difficult to "picture" what I would actually look like when I reach goal. More importantly is how will I feel about myself when I reach goal? Will it frighten me? I know I will feel better. There was a brief time in high school where I lost 30 pounds and was pretty close to goal weight but still 15-20 pounds over what the "chart guessers" thought. Yet I remember how energetic I felt, how awesome it felt to try on smaller pants, guessing at size, only to discover that they also were TOO BIG, and going down to a smaller size. Really cool. So I want that feeling again.

I've see various relatives struggling in their 70's and 80's because they made poor choices in their diet, didn't exercise, and they are having an awful time. Yet, I do see some friends in their 80's and 90's who are really ROCKIN', in great health, energetic, and I want to be that way when I'm in my 80's or 90

My Program:
Well, so far, the program is to just get this set up and figure out what is what, decide what to do, get some sleep, GET OFF THE INTERNET (including the wonderfully fun websites like this one!), and get some SLEEP!

EAT VEGGIES! I love them, but why won't I stop and prepare them for myself?



Do 15 minutes of DeCluttering 4-6 days a week (FlyLady!)

Okay, I'm not done with this list now. But I'm giving myself permission to stop here and revisit it later. It shouldn't go away anytime soon, as long as SparkGuy has enough squirrels running on the electric generators to keep powering the computers holding all of the SparkPeople pages!!

Then I can update this later with more profound coherent goals.

Personal Information:
I'm north of Wichita, KS not far - if that's where you are, drop me a note! Maybe we can walk??

Thanks for the encouragement on my blog. I'm having a down in the dumps kind of morning and I don't know if I just need a nap or if my period is about to start or if I'm getting ready to have an episode with my mental health or what...? Just know I feel like screaming and crying and I don't know why except I kind of do and I feel trapped right now and like everything is doomed and why should I expect anything different? That's not how my life goes. Not in a good place right now...hoping camping with John gets my mind off things and that we can have a good time with no problems and him not going off about his ex the whole time b/c if I hear her name 1 more time I may just lose it. Just sayin'. Anyway, thanks doll for listening. (((hugs)))

Hmmm. Getting blood stains out is hard; best to catch as soon as you can of course. We always pour hydrogen peroxide for fresh blood stains on our scrubs; cold salt water if new stain; someone said WD40 can help... Good luck,
