We are headed south on Dec. 28th to soak up the sun. Today I am packing (yes taking my scale along) and it gives me time to think - what will I wear on vacation, how I will kick start my diet, exercise, 2015 goals, how to energize...
I gained a shocking amount of weight since I got sick in November. I am still in recovery mode and very tired, BUT I am planning for a very successful 2015. It will take a lot of and effort and I WILL do it!

I am taking small steps to reach big goals. I was sick for a month and still feel so tired. I am setting small daily goals that will get me headed in the right direction. As I feel better there will be more momentum and bigger goals.
1) go to bed early 1/1
2) get up between 6 - 7 AM 1/1

Meeting New Friends - Sparker LESLIELENORE on the right
Doing fun things with family
Camping with family
Exploring new places
Being a tourist around home
Biking the seawall
I have been sick since Nov. 11th. First it was the flu and I was flat out in bed, then it morphed into a respiratory infection - bad cold, then into my lungs. I am on my second course of antibiotics. My energy level is so low. I am feeling better, not 100% but definitely on the mend. Today I am running errands, and tonight I am going to a women's dinner.
Monday I had a medical appointment and got the results of my blood tests. Yikes my blood sugar levels are too high. I need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to look and feel good and stay healthy. So today I am back on track - diet and exercise! YES!!!
I spent 30 minutes looking at summer pictures and realized I have a VERY active lifestyle. I am doing a lot of fun things with family and friends - visiting, walking, biking, hiking, travelling, doing touristy things, picnics in the park, camping, playing with the kids, meeting new friends, etc. I have to stay strong and healthy to maintain this active lifestyle. I want to continue hiking to waterfalls, biking the seawall, exploring new places!
Tomorrow we are flying to Edmonton for our annual Christmas visit with family and friends. At the airport we have an interview to get our Nexus cards for the frequent traveler program - a joint Canada-United States program designed to let pre-approved, low-risk travelers cross the Canada–U.S. border quickly. We live 12 minutes north of the U.S. border and have a second home in WA, so we frequently cross the border.
My DD who lived in China for 6 years has returned to Canada. It will be wonderful to spend the holidays together for the first time in years.
OK time to get moving!
Edit - my energy level is very low so goals for the rest of the week walk 5,000 steps daily and nutrition tracking.
