My goals are to eat healthier so I can lose weight and improve my joint health. To that end I'm hoping to walk at least 2 miles a day, though most days it will probably be just a mile. One nice thing is if I have anywhere to go it's 1/2 mile to the closest bus stop so I get in my mile when I go to the bus stop and go back home. LOL
I'm also trying to get started on Dave Ramsey's plan so I can become debt free, that however will take many years as I live on a fixed income and was one of those people who didn't get a raise this year and probably won't next year. I do hope to start recieving early SS in December so that will really help, both in the weight loss and in becoming debt free.
Got a FB friend who runs the Marine Corps marathon on a regular basis from what I understand. I'm lucky enough to still be walking so I don't attempt any running, I tend to fall flat on my face when I do.
I have changed my walking goal to 1 mile a day as it's getting hot here in south Texas and I won't be going outside much unless I've got an appointment.
My goals for the year are: 1. Having goals is my very 1st important step 2. Having a mindset of consistency (and if I get off track for a day, I get back on it the very next day, not making a habit of making excuses)..walking, eating, knowing your "active now" and posting...... 3. Walking at least 6 days, 1 mile (min). (I have stepped up to that starting last month, I used to be walking just 3 times a week, 30 min) whoo hooooo! 4. Incorporating being active on the weekends. 5. And last but not least, now that I have found my vets (tears), I will stay connected no matter what.

Way to go, CJ. Right now, the only two big goals on my radar are completing the Safari Half Marathon in March and the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in June. After that, Jerry and I are kicking around the idea of training for the Marine Corps Marathon. (Can you imagine?!)
1. lose 60 pounds; 2. make the most out of whatever the fibromyalgia clinic can do for me (first visit on 1/25); 3. learn more about orthomolecular nutrition (how vitamins/minerals work to keep our bodies healthy); 4. use what little energy credits I have to plan and prepare healthy food; 5. continue to incorporate more "clean eating"; 6. seriously increase fruits and veggies; 7. grow at least one fruit or veggie.
