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!!!

My Goals:
My goals are simple:
Exercise consistently and reach a healthy weight.

My specific goal is to reach my healthy weight 5 pounds at a time with Tuesday's being my "official" day to track that downward path. Will have other weigh-in days depending on what challenges I am participating in.

accumulate at least 400 minutes of exercise activity weekly.

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.
