Swimming with the dolphins in Cozumel. May 2011
Relaxing after the gig.
Calm day for sailing.
Updated goals: This year 2016, is going to be a great year!!! I have some serious goals to attain, I'm heading towards a big birthday this year and PLAN on accomplishing my weight goal. I realize I must make a lifestyle change with diet and exercise. I may start slow, but will be in full swing by the end of January.
I have a FitBit One and these were my 2015 totals, all of which I plan on breaking!!!
My daily step goal is 11,000 per day, except maybe for Wednesday. I sail every Wednesday and it's difficult to get the extra exercise in.
I KNOW I can do this!!!
We have a near-term goal for August and then the next goal set for September.
I want to lose 30 lbs, and I'm not putting a final date down this time. I have several interim goals.
We will do it!!!!
My total weight loss goal is 35 lbs, by Sept. 2016.
Starting weight: 186.5
Starting date: 1/2/16
Mar 2nd - 177
May 15th - 170
July 4th - 164
Aug 15th - 159
Sept 17th - 155
The reason for these dates are trips and/or company associated with them.
My husband & I are watching our carb intake, trying to stay below 40 grams a day. We started at 20 grams and have slowing worked our way up to 40. On occasion, we will drop down to help with plateauing.
We plan on an occasional "cheat day" to reward us when we've accomplished a goal.
My exercise goal is to burn 400 + calories a day, and to get in at least 30 minutes a day of exercise with one day of rest a week.
I know I can do this and by September of next year (a BIG birthday), I want to be at my goals.
My name is Carol and I live in Florida. I love to sail, play bass guitar in our band, and cruise.
New Year's resolutions:
1. Reach my goal weight
2. Get off my BP medicine
3. Exercise every day
4. Help my Dad get organized.
5. More quality time with Jon - less partying.
6. Increase our savings accounts
7. Practice and improve my bass playing
8. Improve my sailing skills
9. Be a better friend
