Make sure you have SMART goals... Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.

You have a good start here, but you want your goals to be something you can check off; doing strength and cardio is good, but you want to be specific! Perhaps say "I will do cardio three days a week for at least 30 minutes, and I will do full body strength workouts on my off days 3 days a week."

Something like that. :) Here's the SP article on SMART goal setting:

This is not one that is one that can be measured as easily as some. First the easy part, I want to lose a little more than 4 pounds. That will put me at my goal weight. The next is still easy to see if you saw me personally. It is to maintain for a year, but I will take it in small chunks, one month at a time. The rest is more difficult, to tone up this old lady's body ,(63 this month). Again, this have to be witnessed first by me and then others around me. To do that I will need to exercise with both cardio and weights 4 to 5 times a week. These goals my be a bit lofty. Time will tell. Positive words of encouragement will be appreciated!
