My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in July 2015:
1. Lose 23 lbs.
2. Have a total cholesterol below 200.
3. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

I enjoyed my 14 in 2014 so much that I've made a list of 15 for 2015. I reserve the right to change any of the 15 if I so choose -- and I still need to decide on the 15th. I have so many ideas left by the time I reach the end of the list, I can't decide which one I want on the list. No one said I ...

I have so many ideas left by the time I reach the end of the list, I can't decide which one I want on the list. No one said I had to just do 15 either.

1.Get a pedicure.
2.Try reflexology.
3.Visit a new Wisconsin city. I did this one last year but there are more places to go.
4.Make a wine kit. I got one for Christmas so Iíve got a start on this one.
5.Grow something new in the garden. Kale, maybe.
6.Take a cooking class, online or in person.
7.Master Gardener classes.
8.Volunteer in a new way.
9.Learn enough German to read a childrenís book in German.
10.Read President biographies through #35. This wonít be as hard as it sounds. Several years ago I made a New Yearís resolution to read a biography of each President. Iíve made it to #26 but have been stuck there for a while.
11.Play cards at the senior center.
12.Teach each dog a new trick.
13.Do a corn maze.
14.Take a Zumba class. I used to do Zumba at Curves before my ankle surgery in 2012 and loved it. Itís time to go back. I donít go to Curves anymore but Zumba is available to nonmembers for a fee. Otherwise thereís continuing ed.
15.

Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 30+ years. We only have canine children.

Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

hi--I know so well what you mean about emergency mode. one thing that helped me a lot is steven gurgevich's hypnotherapy tape for panic and anxiety. you can get it on amazon. there is one that is sort of daily "medicine" that I like a lot, and his hypnotic rehearsal has helped me a lot too. the cd isn't real expensive, and for me it has been well worth the money. you can use headphones and listen as you are going to sleep. usually the daily one puts me to sleep and I sleep right through the rest of them as they play out. even if you are asleep, they still help because your subconscious still hears them. I loaned my hard copy to my brother--don't know if he has used it yet. I think if we can calm either the mind OR the body down--the other kind of gets dragged along for the ride.
