I am 58 years old, live in the northern tip of NH, have been married to to my DH for 30 years and have a son who will graduate from culinary arts school as a chef and a pastry chef.

I had a hip replacement a year ago. My has increased 100 fold and it's incredible. I have discovered hiking and love it.

My goals have changed a lot lately. I have learned that that it isn't about weight loss, the the journey to a healthier lifestylye. I am also learning to like the person on the inside. She is someone that I want to get to know and never knew. I have goals that aren't about weight, exercise or nutrition related which is totally new for me.

My goals for this Spring Challenge are:
1 Be able to hike at more.

2. Walk a 5K.

3. Use the birthday gift my parents gave me (a local atlas) to check out the local trails.
My long term goals are:
1. To get upto a calorie range of of 1300 (or slightly less)-1650 calories a day.

2. I will log everything I eat (good or bad). I will also strive to increase my fiber intake.

3. I will track my fitness on a daily basis.

4. I will do 60 minutes of cardio on good days and no more than 15 minutes on not so good days - 6 days a week-no excuses. Anything extra is a bonus!

5. I will strength train a minimum of 3 times a week-no excuses.

6. I will work to improve my mobility issues and become stronger along the way.

7. I will make every effort to reach my 5% goal
8. I blog at least 1 times a week.

10. I will post these goals in a place where I can see them on a daily basis.

11. I will weigh-in weekly.

    Oh BLAST!!! I am so sorry to hear of your and your DH's car accident. I know you must be in shock as well as pain. I hope your minds and bodies heal rapidly, and that you won't have any problems getting another car.

    I'll light a candle of healing for you, and keep it going until I hear from you that all is well.

    My love and prayers,
    Sandy emoticon
