Here is my ever developing strategy from this day forward and through the challenge:

1.Increase my strength sessions to 35 minutes per session, 3x per week. GOAL met - my sessions are 40 min long and I am keeping it there for now(6/28/16)

Still continuing to get to make 2-9 into habits as of 6/28/16

2. Make a point of checking in on my challenge teams on a more regular basis -- at least 3x per week rather than 1 or no time per week.
3 Read and respond to teammates blogs when time permits.
4. Check Friend Feed and respond on a mostly daily basis.
5. Blog at least once a week on how I am progressing.
6. Become more proactive about planning healthy meals -
7. Make a copy of these strategies and goals so that I can:
8. Review this set of goals daily.
9. Revise and tweak monthly as necessary throughout 2016.

10. Keep on pushing no matter what!!! as of 6/28/16 - still pushing and getting ever so slowly closer to my healthy weight!!!

Include a variety of aerobic exercise, balancing exercises daily and strength training striving for no less than 3x per week for no less than 20 min per session.

Personal Information:
I live in upstate WNY with my husband of 38 years as of April 2016 :) and our 11 year old Beagle Oliver(the Happy Digger)

I do a lot of volunteering including tutoring Math for grade school and adult learners. I also sometimes take care of other people's dogs and sometimes cats.
We just happily became Grandparents on Thanksgiving Day 2016 to a beautiful little girl named Penelope.

    If someone ever says you're weird, say thank you, and then curtsy.
    No, don't curtsy. Bow. And then tip your imaginary hat. That'll show them.

    “I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace,
    harmony, health, love and abundance.
    Then whenever doubt, anxiety, or fear try to call me,
    they keep getting a busy signal and soon they'll forget my number.”
    ~Edith Armstrong~

    Well, this is the last day to torch calories before tomorrow's weigh in, so get out thee and torch some calories!

    Oh, and maybe you'd like to sing "Burn, Baby, Burn!" while you do it.

    Make 'em scream, my friend.
    I'll see you at weigh in tomorrow, and I'll be cheering for you!
