Reading some blogs and other articles recently - my head is not sure how or what to do next in terms of "setting goals"...

But maybe...

Getting more focused on doing (or re-doing) those activities back into my life??

My Goals:
I've never really been at a "normal" weight for my age. It's difficult to "picture" what I would actually look like when I reach goal. More importantly is how will I feel about myself when I reach goal? Will it frighten me? I know I will feel better. There was a brief time in high school where I lost 30 pounds and was pretty close to goal weight but still 15-20 pounds over what the "chart guessers" thought. Yet I remember how energetic I felt, how awesome it felt to try on smaller pants, guessing at size, only to discover that they also were TOO BIG, and going down to a smaller size. Really cool. So I want that feeling again.

I've see various relatives struggling in their 70's and 80's because they made poor choices in their diet, didn't exercise, and they are having an awful time. Yet, I do see some friends in their 80's and 90's who are really ROCKIN', in great health, energetic, and I want to be that way when I'm in my 80's or 90

My Program:
Well, so far, the program is to just get this set up and figure out what is what, decide what to do, get some sleep, GET OFF THE INTERNET (including the wonderfully fun websites like this one!), and get some SLEEP!

EAT VEGGIES! I love them, but why won't I stop and prepare them for myself?



Do 15 minutes of DeCluttering 4-6 days a week (FlyLady!)

Okay, I'm not done with this list now. But I'm giving myself permission to stop here and revisit it later. It shouldn't go away anytime soon, as long as SparkGuy has enough squirrels running on the electric generators to keep powering the computers holding all of the SparkPeople pages!!

Then I can update this later with more profound coherent goals.

Personal Information:
I'm north of Wichita, KS not far - if that's where you are, drop me a note! Maybe we can walk??

That version of the Bible called "The Voice" - a friend of mine uses that Bible and I like the way it reads. Crash the Chatterbox is a series by Steven Furtick who does Evolution Church - it's a really good series that talks about how we overcome our thoughts by believing what GOD has to say about us instead of believing the lies of the devil. It's an awesome series and it was very empowering. I'm going to be reading through a lot of my old notebooks (my sponsor has me journaling/taking a daily inventory) here soon and will be posting stuff - I took a lot of notes in that class.

I believe Mandisa was inspired to lose weight - at least partially - by a Rude Comment that Simon Cowell made about her when she was on American Idol. She handled it with Grace, and later publicly forgave him during a TV Appearance

I hope your mother's eye surgery came out well. I sent up a little prayer for her.
