it is 2:00 p.m. here so the New Year is 10 hours away. A new decade in this century.
I am delighted that since I joined SparkPeople that I have dropped (no, not dropped) 70 pounds, have lost inches in many places and feel healthier than I have in years.
I am starting a new year but planning to keep up the work to be healthy for the rest of my life. I hope I can be an encouragement to others. Some close friends i have tried to prod but nothing has happened yet. Some Spark friends have been an encouragement to me and I hope I have been to them.
Thanks to BabyJane I have started wearing a pedometer and have started pushing myself to walk more each day. I was doing about 6,000 steps a day but now it is 8,000 or 10,000 steps most days.
My main exercise is the yard work I do most mornings. I have even started a small garden, mainly in pots because there is no real soil in my yard. I should have lettuce, beans, cucumbers, squash and tomatoes if all goes well. We will see.
I hope all of you have a great New Year and a healthy year to come.
