I want to RUN

Being in my early 60's, the weight doesn't come off easily. I know I need to exercise more and cut out junk food. Sometimes it's easy to exercise - I have time and motivation. Other times, I find it hard to even get off the couch or I'm so busy that a half hour isn't easy to find or I have someone visiting from out of town so don't want to give up time spent with them. There's always excuses but I need to step up and loose this weight. I'm not happy with myself and my clothes don't fit ...
Being in my early 60's, the weight doesn't come off easily. I know I need to exercise more and cut out junk food. Sometimes it's easy to exercise - I have time and motivation.

There's always excuses but I need to step up and loose this weight. I'm not happy with myself and my clothes don't fit right. I'm not consistent with exercise and diet, so I'm hoping to find the support I need here to meet my goals.

I want to do the 50 state HM. I've done 6 (PA, AZ, FL, Washington DC, NM and TX). However, I had to walk most of each and want to be able to RUN all of the HM. That's my goal and is near the top of my "bucket list".

My Goals:
My new spring goals:

I didn't accomplish any of my fall/winter goals so I really need to step it up during this spring.

I have slacked off exercising and, as a consequence, have gained weight back and am not as toned. I NEED to get back to feeling healthy.
- stay within my calorie range
- drink more water
- exercise 6 out of 7 days (I'm going to try for 7 but I have to be realistic)
- loose 5 lbs
- Take vitamins every day
- ST at least 1 day a week

RUN, RUN, RUN a 10K. I can walk/run it now but I want to be able to RUN the whole thing.

Additional goals for the spring:
- Run 5 miles without walking
- Prepare for a HM in April and May. I CAN DO THIS!!!

Goals that have nothing to do with weight loss but that I want to accomplish:
- catch up on my 1-year Bible reading
- pray more
- be a nicer person and don't complain
- work on making my grandson's quilt
- install my storm door


My Program:
- drinking water
- trying to cut out junk food
- doing more exercise

Personal Information:
I live in central NY, which is beautiful, especially in the summer.

I have 3 adorable grandchildren that I see frequently. This is the reason I don't move someplace with better weather.

I work full time and volunteer in my community. I was a foster parent for several years but have finally decided I need time to myself.

Other Information:
Favorite quote: I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

I will try to keep you focused and would appreciate whatever you think might help keep me in line. I must warn you, as an "old dawg" I am rather set in my ways and don't always mind, lol.
