Hiking before spring had sprung!

Over the years I've been gradually becoming less and less healthy in my lifestyle and dietary habits, and more and more sedentary and just plain LAZY!! I need to STOP being lazy and START being someone I can love and be proud of again.

Update: 5/8/09
My new page background is a picture of budding flowers of spring, taken while hiking this week.

Member Since: 4/10/2008

Fitness Minutes: 9,335

My Goals:
My goals have changed drastically. Realizing that I was falling into the same old obsessive pattern, I am going change my goals back to the original goal of just becoming more fit and healthy, whether or not it results in weight loss.

My Program:
My NEW PROGRAM is about increasing strength and muscle tone, flexibility, balance, cardio health and organ functioning. If some of this extra weight "happens" to gradually fall off, that would just be a bonus of my healthier lifestyle.

Get at least 20 min of stretching and/or strength training MOST days, as well as at least 30 min cardio MOST days (obviously, doing more in either category remains an option)

WITHOUT logging all my food, I will continue to make choices that I know are healthy for me.

Personal Information:
I live in Wisconsin, with two cats and my S.O., Chazz.

I work from home, so have no excuses for not following my plan - although I haven't been nearly as successful as I'd like, either in my plan or my work from home.

Other Information:
I'm really getting back on track now. Eating right, exercising right, feeling good!

Edit 6/21/09:
NOW I'm back on track. I got lost in my "all or nothing" obsessive personality, and lost sight of the really important things I was trying to attain. Again.

    I am sorry to hear that you hurt yourself. But I have to admit "The Birdcage" is very funny. Thank you for the reference, it made me giggle. emoticon
