My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in July 2015:
1. Lose 18 lbs.
2. Have a total cholesterol below 200.
3. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

My other goal is to improve in mind, body and spirit and I have listed 14 things to do in 2014.
1. Try kale. It's so healthy. Why haven't I done this yet? Done 2/5/14 I've tried it raw and cooked in soup and have enjoyed it both ways.
2. Snowshoe. Hopefully we'll have a warmish ...

2. Snowshoe. Hopefully we'll have a warmish winter day so I can. Done 2/14/14 Loved it!!
3. Meet a Spark Friend. Anyone else interested? I had a Spark overnighter with friends 3/7-8/14 and it was GREAT!!
4. Walk a walk/run. I was going to put 5K but I just want to start by doing one that isn't virtual. Paws for Brittany dog walk 5/10/14
5. Get a facial. It sounds like so much fun!
6. Learn Tunisian Crochet. I've crocheted for years. It's about time I broaden that skill.
7. Take an Excel class. Years ago, I took a Word class and my DH took an Excel class with the idea that we'd teach the other person what we learned. That part never happened and I am often lost in Excel which means it's just easier to let my DH do it for me. Done 4/4/14
8. Take a cooking class. Online or in a classroom -- just something to expand my skills.
9. Call or see a friend every week. I connect too much online and that just isn't the same.
10. Listen to a book on tape. It will be good to stretch my auditory skills. Done 3/19/14
11. Try seeding root vegetables in early November so they over winter. I heard about this on public radio and am curious to try it.
12. Visit a new Wisconsin town. There are still some I've never visited. Done 6/25/14 I visited Wittenburg for my first Nueske's visit.
13. Try hummus. It was easier to try new things when I worked. I could take something to work and try it. If it turned out I liked it, I could buy more. Done 1/12/14 It was okay -- just okay.
14. Find a great lipstick. Done 6/11/14

I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. I also love to do Sudoku. 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.

Janet remember the disorder when you had the bathroom done? Well I think after Erik's addition I should have waited a wee bit longer to start another in house project. I hope someone tapes my mouth shut if I mention another inside project-have to get the walk way done for Erik-but other than that, I'm done for 2014.

Hi Janet! Thanks for asking about me and my knee, etc. I'm doing pretty good. The knee is behaving pretty well with the cortisone shot. I wear a good brace on it too, and sure notice when that's off. Yesterday was tough because of doing so much the day before. I know that I have to pay attention to not overdoing it, and yet it's so hard not to at times. I hope that you're doing well and I'm wishing you all the success you can muster and feel good about! emoticon emoticon

Hmmmm, seems like that roller bar is not working so very well. As a former extreme supinator myself, I can identify one anywhere. ;-)

I now wear zero-drop shoes (Altra brand) and they seem to work pretty well for me. Of course, getting my hip fixed helped a heck of a lot, too! No more screaming IT bands!!! WOOOHOOOO!!!
Oh, yeah, and paying attention to my walk and consciously correcting as I walk has helped a lot too. Silly feet........ :-)

So, hey, how was that pre-op appointment? Are you all ready for your big day??
