I entered April 1st 2016 with a 20 pound weight loss after finishing a 10 week fitness challenge. I won 1st place out of 11 competitors and my team won 1st place. I am so proud of myself and hope to build on this success from here on out. 4/2/16

Goals for 2015
I took a few days to marinate on the goals I wanted to accomplish this year. In the past I've always been general this time I wanted to be specific.

- I am going to continue my workout DVD personal challenge at least three times a week
- I liked one of the articles that I read in the January 2015 Health magazine. "Your first instinct is to cut out bad foods, scratch that....Instead think about what you should add to your diet...with the goal of slowly crowding out unhealthy processed foods." Basically instead of telling myself I can't have something I will focus more on the foods that are healthier for me and make sure I have a lot of it on hand so I won't have room for the unhealthy stuff.

- Lastly, letting go of clutter. Although I am somewhat of a novice tech geek I still have issues with letting go of the tangibles. The librarian in me can't let go of the physical book even though I have at least three items I can read e-books from.

These are my three main goals for this year every else I accomplish will be feathers in my cap. 1/8/15

2013 was not a great year for me. Everything come to head that summer when I had to have life saving and life altering surgery. During recovery, I never knew such pain existed and could last for do long. Everyone in while I twinge that sends me into flashback mode.
As December was ending, I decided it was time to get back on track with my weight lose journey. More then a year before that, I gave up exercising because 30 min on the treadmill drain my energy for the rest of the day sending me into a narcoleptic fit that was to much to bare.

So on January 2, 2014, I hit the reset button. I rejoined a gym and committed to only doing 30 min on the treadmill no matter how slow or what people thought. The weight lose is very slow, I've lost 7.6 pounds in 4 months, But the benefits of my lifestyle change much greater. In March 2014 I became official no longer anemic after more than 20 years, my knee and ankles don't hurt, and my endurance is up tremendously to point that I walked 5 miles to and from my house to see a new local park. I may have my ups and downs but I'm optimistic for the future. 5/5/14

    Evening! If you give up now, how will you ever know you could have succeeded? No matter the cost or sacrifice, keep pushing yourself beyond your own boundaries. Make this minute the minute of decision and break free of your self-made limitations!!

    Hello. I thought I’d share a personal observation that seemed to have been a popular one. I hope you don’t mind if I share it again:

    Every fat cell acquired through life is accompanied with either a good or bad memory. No wonder losing weight is such an emotional journey!

    Howdy! If we can’t do 1 sit-up, why set a goal to do 100 sit ups by the end of the week? Although we may have the desire to set miraculous goals, temper them with reality and tone the goals down into achievable goals…then we will reap a feeling of success instead of failure and frustration. Another new day is here! You're doing great! Keep up the hard work and sacrifices!

    It's super Saturday! If you've ever been late for work. Late for a date. Felt too old to change. Missed the boat/train. Fell off the wagon. Took a sabbatical. Derailed while on vacation. Bad stuff happened in life. It’s okay to be late. All LATE stands for is:


    Then get back on track. There’s years worth of empty days ahead to fill with good positive choices!
