My Goals:
Goals for 2014:

Getting to my goal weight.

Running a half marathon - maybe.

Completing a couple of bike tours.

General goals:

Wearing size 6 jeans!

Running more without feeling like my knees are going to explode.

Buying a designer dress and having it FIT!

Hiking Mount Washington in NH (all 6,288 feet of her!).

Feeling good about myself. And, yeah, feelin' DAMN SEXY!


My Program:
Cardio and some strength training four/ five times a week on my own, in the gym, on the road and in the streets.

Strength/cardio sessions twice a week in the gym.

****
Weekends - walking, hiking, biking, doing stability ball workouts or Billy Blanks' abs video in my living room.

Sticking to my daily food plan.

Thinking positive and visiting SP every day!

Reading up on nutrition and health as much as humanly possible.

Avoiding cow's milk, aspartame and other man-made crud that the FDA insists is safe - HA! I'm also cutting way down on starchy carbs.

Ignoring the toxic shmucks in my life who say I'm getting "too skinny. " Whatever.

Figuring out how to grow up and relate to others differently so that I can stop turning to food for comfort. This just might be the hardest part.
