Here is my ever-developing strategy from this day forward and through the challenges I am part of in 2018:

1.Increase my strength sessions to 35 minutes per session, 3x per week. (current level as of 1/4/18 about 1x per week for 10 -15 minutes)

2. Make a point of checking in on my challenge teams on a more regular basis -- at least 3x per week rather than 1 or no times per week.
3 Read and respond to teammates blogs when time permits.
4. Check Friend Feed and respond on a mostly daily basis.
5. Blog at least once a week on how I am progressing.
6. Become more proactive about planning healthy meals -
7. Make a copy of these strategies and goals so that I can:
8. Review this set of goals daily.
9. Revise and tweak monthly as necessary throughout 2018.

10. Keep on pushing no matter what!!! as of 1/4/18 - still pushing and making baby steps toward getting to my healthy weight!!!

Fitness Minutes: 276,500

My Goals:
My goals are simple:
Exercise consistently and reach a healthy weight.
I am aiming for a variety of exercise including but not limited to walking, Zumba and Zumba for Wii, Yoga,Kettlebells, and lifting weights for strength.

My specific goal is to reach my healthy weight 5 pounds at a time with Mondays being my "official" day to track that downward path. Will have other weigh-in days depending on what challenges I am participating in.

My Program:
For my Challenges :
accumulate at least 400 minutes of exercise activity weekly.

Include a variety of aerobic exercise, balancing exercises daily and strength training striving for no less than 3x per week for no less than 35 min per session.

Personal Information:
I live in upstate WNY with my husband of 40 years as of April 2018 :) and our 12 year old Beagle Oliver(the Happy Digger)

I do a lot of volunteering including tutoring Math for grade school and adult learners. I also sometimes take care of other people's dogs and sometimes cats.
We happily became Grandparents on Thanksgiving Day 2016 to a beautiful little girl named Penelope.
We get to watch her currently 3 days (and then some) a week. It is a joy to see her daily growth.

Other Information:
I enjoy doing many things including crossword puzzles,Jumbles, playing word games and just plain strategy games on my DS, Sudoku, reading, working with plastic canvas, crocheting, gardening, walking dogs and just plain learning.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon How God Created Mother emoticon emoticon emoticon
    God took the fragrance of a flower, the majesty of a tree.
    The gentleness of morning dew, the calm of a quiet sea.
    The beauty of a twilight hour, the soul of a starry night,
    The laughter of a rippling brook, the grace of a bird in flight,
    Then God fashioned from these things, a creation like no other.
    And when his masterpiece was through, He called it simply...MOTHER

    “Wouldn't life be perfect if sweatpants were sexy, Monday mornings were fun,
    junk food didn't make you fat, girls didn't cause drama, boys weren't so confusing,
    nothing was regrettable, you didn't ever lose the people you love,
    friendships didn't fade, and goodbyes only meant till tomorrow??”
