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:

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

"Time always moves forward whether you move forward or not. Your most effective strategy is to make use of each moment as soon as it arrives.
There's no end to what you can accomplish if you'll just go ahead and get going. Now is what you have, so make now your time to begin."

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."

"Dreaming is wonderful, goal setting is crucial, but action is supreme.
To make something great happen you must get busy and make it happen.
Take that action step today that will put you on your path to achievement."

"Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
The greatest mistake is giving up."
