2014 Goals

Hi, I am Janette, and I am 54 years old. I have been on SparkPeople, MyFitnessPal and some other sites and groups for a year now. I live with my boyfriend and his son that is 9 years old, in Escondido, CA. I have a 7 yr old Beagle/Terrier dog named Cali that I have had since she was a small puppy. And we just recently got a black lab/boxer named DD that is about 1 yr old. I started My Fitness Pal on Mother's Day Weekend, 2013 at 170 Lbs so I have been doing this for almost a year now. My ...
Hi, I am Janette, and I am 54 years old. I have been on SparkPeople, MyFitnessPal and some other sites and groups for a year now. I live with my boyfriend and his son that is 9 years old, in Escondido, CA. I have a 7 yr old Beagle/Terrier dog named Cali that I have had since she was a small puppy. And we just recently got a black lab/boxer named DD that is about 1 yr old. I started My Fitness Pal on Mother's Day Weekend, 2013 at 170 Lbs so I have been doing this for almost a year now. My weight has been bouncing up and down a little bit all that time, but basically slowly going down. On 12-31-13 I was at 151.6 Lbs, and on 3-31-14 I was at 145.7 Lbs. On April 1, 2014 I started the Dash Diet at 144.8 Lbs. And today, 4-23-2014 I am at 147 Lbs, so the lowest I have got so far is 144.8 Lbs. I will probably keep going until I am around 130 Lbs or so. I ran my 1st 5 K in Sept 2013, something that I would have never thought of ever trying before I started this journey.

My Goals for 2014 are:

1: To get down to some where around 140-125, I will decide as I get closer to my goal just exactly where I feel comfortable at. I want to get back into the red dress in my picture from 2004 and look good in it.

2: To work to get completely off my blood pressure medicine if possible. I was already able to just recently get it cut in half twice, so I am almost off of it. And if that is the best I can do I am okay with that.

3: To lower my weight and cholesterol level to hope it helps with my gallbladder and gallstone issue, which I have already done.

4: Eat more whole foods and less processed foods daily, which I am already doing now too.

5: Playing with or walking my dogs for at least 15 mins daily, right now I have injured my oblique muscles so I can't walk them on the leash right now. But I should be starting Physical Therapy soon and hopefully I will be able to start walking them by leash again shortly.

6: drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day, which I have already been doing.

7: getting at least 8 hours sleep nightly, which I have already really be trying to do.

8. exercising for at least 10 mins daily, which I have already been doing a lot more than 10 mins.

9. stretching every day, which I am doing even more of now to help my oblique muscle issue.

10. Walking one more step every day, which I usually do.

11. weighing myself and logging it in at least once a month, I usually do it daily.

12. measuring myself and logging it in at least 4 times a year, I usually do it monthly.

13. Checking into the site for at least 5 mins daily, I usually am on the site several times a day for way more than 5 mins each time.

14. And the Last one is to have a very Happy and Healthy New Year, this is the one that I have to work at the most, lol.
