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.

    It’s very important to be clear about what you want and where you want to be. Be specific, write it down, look at and think about the goal often. Once we declare where we’re heading the Universe always begins to respond by gentle nudges, unexpected connections and all kinds of reinforcements. It’s not just fun to watch this happen, it will restore your faith in miracles too!

    IF you start your day with the expectation that something great is going to happen, you will start watching for and appreciating those amazing moments throughout the day. Beverly McKee

    Thank you for thinking of me after I wrote that buzz cut blog..... I really appreciate the party hat and funny how one and 1/2 weeks later my hair is actually starting to look like a girl again!.... I put a few blonde streaks in myself last night because I was reluctant to return to that shopping especially pay the high prices but I'm happy to say it turned out really good!... Thanks again and enjoy your Labor Day.
