2014 - 2 hip replacements behind me and new right shoulder rotator cuff tear fix - as my DH says, I'm now the bionic woman. No more excuses. Time to fix up the rest of the body and it's only me standing in the way.
-----------
In 2011 I got sidelined with a hip replacement and the result was not as much cardio as I had hoped and a gain of 25 pounds. Now I'm back to the basics and doing what worked the first time that allowed me to lose the weight and keep it off for 4 years.
-----------------
In 2010 I planned to walk 500 miles I ended up walking/biking 650 miles which I was thrilled about. In 2011 my new goal is to bike 1000 miles this year.

1000 is a daunting number but if you break it down that's about 85 miles a month, or 22 miles a week or 3 miles a day. That's doable!!! So I don't look at the 1000 I look at the monthly total. SP allows me to track my mileage each day to see how I progress and I have to admit it keeps me energized.

I'm off to a great start with 100 miles under my belt in January. February - I decided to act as a newbie and really pulled out the stoppers for exercising. After only 8 days I've already biked 50 miles so I would say my February total is doable.
-------------------
May 2010 - I bought a recumbent bike and plan to start adding some cycling into the mix to add some diversity to my workout program. With the addition of cycling I'm increasing my yearly goal to 1000 miles.

January 2010 - Gained back some of the hard won weight I lost by not paying attention and slacking off on the cardio. So time to recommit and get back to where I was before it gets out of hand.
- I will walk 500 miles in 2010. That gives me about 10 miles a week to walk. (even if it means using the dreaded treadmill)
- I will stay within my daily calorie range.

Sept 2008 - Maintaining well - total loss is 37 pounds.

July 2008 - I'm down 33 pounds and have decided to move towards maintaining but also hope to shed 8 more pounds. I know this will mean I will be eating a bit more calories then I was the first 6 months so these last 8 pounds will take longer. But I hope that this will put me in a normal routine of where I will be when I reached my goal.

    Thank you for the lovely welcome and the comments on my page.

    I certainly will reach out to you if and when I ever need to have the hip replacements. Just don't like the thought of it all and the risks with surgery and anesthetic etc... so putting it off as long as possible. I always try to do things naturally where possible.

    Thanks again for your nice comments on my page. emoticon

    I was "winter cleaning" one of my sewing room cabinets and came across the 2010 Spring Cleaning Quilt you designed. I must go find the directions and finish it! You'd said there were resulting triangles but that we didn't cut any. I am intrigued! Better late than never? emoticon
