I'm motivated to meet my goals!

My goals:

Improve blood pressure
Improve cholesterol
Increase energy levels
Increase physical activity
Increase core strength and balance
Improve nutrition
Strength training to reduce (and hopefully eliminate) spinal disk pain
Have beautiful arms
Ab definition
Improve BFI

Through these goals it is my hope that weight loss will occur, but it is not my primary goal.

2009 was a very difficult year for many reasons and brought stress from many fronts. One of multiple positives that came out of the year was the realization that my lifestyle needs to change. Not temporarily to loose weight, but as an investment to my future and prolonged health.

Family genetics are interesting. On one side the women live into their 90's. A big contributing factor is they stayed active. My grandmother lived an active and independent life to the age of 92 - she walked everyday. The other side has a high occurrence of heart disease and cancer.

Though I have no say in genetics, I am determined to change my way of life as if it follows my grandmother. I would rather proactively make a change now, than look back and wish I had.

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    About those eggs...the only way I know to get them is directly from someone who has chickens, preferably a friend :). None of the eggs you can buy in a store, even the most 'organic, free-range' taste anywhere close.
    Keep your eyes open for the opportunity.
    Good luck!
