Lose 10-15 pounds and keep them off. I don't want to loose the muscle I've managed to put on over the years, I'd just like to see it again
Increase my energy levels
LEARN! I need to see what I'm doing, wrong and right and fix the stuff that needs fixing.
1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
2. Track my calories and be honest with myself when I go over!
3. Track my exercise
4. Be honest with myself about what I'm putting in my mouth
5. Not be afraid to reach out for support when I need it.
I'm from NY and work in Midtown Manhattan although I live in the suburbs. I'm married with no kids. I do have two pet parrots however who talk back like 3 year olds. We also have the most wonderful dog who is a retired bomb sniffing dog.
I grew up studying ballet so movement was always a part of my life. My father became a yoga instructer long before it was "cool" so yoga feels like a lifetime companion. I'm a big believer in meditation and alternative medicine balanced with typical gym workouts. I studied Tae Kwon Do for several years until my back gave out during my black belt test and I had to find other exercise options. I still throw a few kicks and punches but at least I don't take anymore blows.
I'm a bookworm who's thankful for my train commute which gives me time to read. I love to travel and wish I had more time and money to do it. I like to get out and hike when I can with my husband.
Thank you for commenting on my blog How Far I've Come and sharing your water tummy troubles. I have well water so I was purchasing bottled water and then my dad started bringing his tap water over so you may be onto something! Especially since when I have water at work, it rarely ever upsets my tummy so that's where I drink the most water. Next time I have tummy troubles I will try the bottled water and see if that works.
Out with the old.. in with the new... now its time to kick some serious butt and make 2014 the best year .... time to look in the mirror and say... this is me time... time for me to be the best I can be.....
