Review of January's goals

Monday, February 03, 2014

1. Lose 1lb a week---lost total of 8lbs
2. Eat 2 servings of vegetables daily--- managed to do about 2/3 of the time
3. Strength training 2 times / week---NONE

2 out of 3 not bad. Still disappointed in myself for not even trying except for once. Guess what they say about making sure you enjoy the exercises you pick is true. I really don't like to lift weights. Got to change that attitude about weights because the walking is not changing the shape of my body. Legs look like sticks and no muscle tone so weight training here I come. Going to start with 4 specific exercises that should start helping me to gain some muscle. Wish me luck.

    Portia, you probably already know that strength training is also good for your bones - build up bone density to prevent or slow down osteoporosis. I try to do strength training at least twice a week now, and it has made a HUGE difference. Maybe you could find a good video on-line that you would enjoy doing.
