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...
*hiking
*photography
*art

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?

Go WALK and WALK/RUN

GET REBOUNDER SET UP!!

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??

Send me SparkMail if you want my email address.

    Thanks for visiting my page. We are just south of Melbourne. We go up there quite a bit on our way to Patrick AFB. Can't miss us as we are right off Route One.

    Lol, you are a riot. I'd never given any thought to making my own oil using flakes. I was looking at the oil for sensitive skin on amazon...but maybe making it would be a better way to go..will have to think on that :0) I think the body butter could be yummy so I'm really interested in trying that. Lots of good ways to up the magnesium without the intestinal problems. I have increased up to 450 mg without tummy trouble (on the malate) so a few more days on that dose and I'll increase it to 600 mg and then hold stead at that amount for a week or so with the hope that this stupid racing heart situation will go away. Otherwise I'll be making an appointment with the naturopath to discuss and maybe run a magnesium RBC test.

    Hope you can catch up on that sleep...4 hrs is rough. I basically don't function well if I get less than 7, lol.

    Oooh, thank you! I had not come across her blog yet! That body butter recipe is now on my list of things to do on my first free weekend! Have you tried it?
