An exciting journey and a new beginning

I'm 62 years young, have crummy joints from arthritis, but a super-positive attitude. I'm looking forward to the next phase of my life, and being fit and healthy enough to enjoy every minute.

My Goals:
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!



My Program:
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.


Personal Information:
I live in Vancouver BC Canada with my husband and kitty Max. We love to walk, travel and are both avid photographers.

Other Information:
1. Exercise Program. 30 minutes per day of walking/cardio. 3 times per week of strength with handweights

"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!
Hugs,
Pixie

"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!”
-Steve Maraboli

"The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback...it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you."
-Jillian Michaels
