Recently turned 60. Good time to reevaluate and make changes for a heathier and happier lifestyle.
I've joined the 2016 Fall 5% Challenge

Fall 5% Challenge Exercise Committment -
Plan A - Walk 5 times per week for at least 20 - 30 minutes with our dog Trixie as my walking partner.
Plan B - Use walk at home dvd or Wii fit program when weather is bad (raining or the heat/humidity combination is too much) or unexpected caregiving duties interfere.
Strength train upper body 3 times a week using a workout dvd.

Fall 5% Diet Commitment
Track meals and keep my calorie intake to 1500 a day.
Eat a balanced diet of carbs, protiens, healthy fats and fiber.
Explore new recipes and try new foods with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables and lean meats. Maybe even get over my fear of cooking fish!

Ten Reasons I Want To Lose Weight

1. Improve overall health and wellbeing.
2. Be kinder to my joints, especially my knees and ankles.
3. Lower my cholesterol. Support my already good BP and Blood Sugar numbers.
4. Be kinder to my digestive system.
5. Have more strength and stamina.
6. Tone my arms and have it show.
7. Age gracefully.
8. Become more flexible.
9. Have better balance / physical stability.
10. Be there for the ones I love.
