Today is the first of November. I am going to try a new idea (for me anyway) that I got from a fellow team member. I am going to blog every day, first thing in the morning and include how I did on my monthly goals the previous day. I think by being accountable to the world that I will do a lot better on meeting my goals. I looked over October goals and found out that I didn't do very good. In fact I did lousy. I hate to report that, but hiding from the truth won't get me where I want to go.
If anyone want to join me on reporting on their goals daily, that would be great. We can do this.
My goals for November are:
Cardio 30 minutes, 6 days a week.
Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
Eat 3 fruits/veggies a day.
Loose 3 lbs
Stay within calorie limits
Do knee exercises Mon, Wed, Fri.
Do yoga Mon, Wed, Fri.
Edited to change exercise 30 min to cardio 30 minutes.

I finally got to the gym yesterday. First time this week. So much for going 6x a week. I should do something at home on days that I can't get there. I have a Wii and the exercises are fun, so I don't know why I'm not using it. That needs to change.
I got a new pedometer yesterday. I will do the step exercise on the Wii Fit today to see how accurate the pedometer is. The Wii counts your steps. I do it for 10 minutes and it is rather boring.
I'm taking Mom out to lunch today and also to K-Mart. She is finally feeling better.

Yesterday was a wonderful day. Started the day off with a walk and then went shopping. Got plenty of walking in at the mall. I needed to make up some exercise for when I was sick.
The best part of the day was last night when we went to GS's school music program. The kids did a couple of dances and then they picked a family member to dance with them. I got to dance with him. It has been years since I had danced. We did circle dances and a line dance. I had a blast!!! I get to do it again Thursday night at my GD's program.
A lot of good, fun exercise yesterday and a wonderful time with my GS.

I refuse to “act my age”. I refuse to "grow up". I insist that "age" must not be a consideration as I plan my days, weeks and years. I will do everything that I can do to be physically fit and healthy. I do not plan on sitting in a rocky chair the rest of my life. God gave me my life to do everything that He wants me to do and that includes living an active life. Life is good. Life is fun. I am looking forward to new experiences and adventures.
I will play with my grandchildren. My son was telling them yesterday how I would chase them and their friends around the house with a squirt bottle. It is fun to be young and I still am. I will have water fights with my grandchildren, blow bubbles, eat snow cones, go on hikes. We will enjoy life together and live with enthusiasm. We will make many beautiful memories. And someday when others have given up, I will still be happily enjoying the advantages of a life well spent.
