I'm 65 years young, have crummy joints from arthritis, but a super-positive attitude. I recently retired and I'm looking forward to the next phase of my life and being fit and healthy enough to enjoy every minute.
March 25/17 - to weigh 175 lbs by June 15/17.
- to weigh 160 lbs by August 15/17
- to weigh 145 lbs by September 30/17
Oct 1/15 - 31 days of fitness
Oct 1/15 - to lose 30 lbs by January 31/16
Oct 4/15 - to walk the Sun Run in April 2016 in 90 minutes.
Jan/13 My goals are get fit enough to make my knee replacement surgery a success. Then, I want to get fit enough to ride a bike again, do Zumba and feel fit and ready to enjoy the next phase of my life
Sept/13 New knee is a success, goal reached of being able to bike.
New goals: Increase my general fitness levels, including flexibility, strength and cardio. Keep moving towards my goal weight of 150 lbs. I'm only 15 lbs away!
March 25/17 - Eat whole foods in moderate quantities. No fad diets!
- Exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes p/day
I'm starting off by being more conscious of what I eat, both in terms of quality and quantity. I'm also doing a very moderate exercise program
Sept/13 Knee replacement surgery was a success, now I'm adding in 30 minutes p/day of cardio and strength exercise consistently. I'm also adding as many NEAT minutes as I can, taking stairs, walking to/from work. I track, track, track all of my food, every day. That is key to reaching my goals.
I live in Vancouver BC Canada with my husband and kitty's Max and Buddy. We love to walk, travel and are both avid photographers.
1. Exercise Program. 30 minutes per day of walking/cardio. 3 times per week of strength with handweights
2. Nutrition. Stay within my calorie range and track all of my food every day

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you.
Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something – anything.
Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself.
We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.”

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!

"The one thing all famous authors, world-class athletes, business tycoons,
singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.
Yet still, they began their journeys.
You are so poised for greatness."

“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time.
Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.
Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
