January Challenge and more

Saturday, January 03, 2009

Much better than resolutions is a challenge especially when its with a group of great people. I have not put a #on the weight I would like to lose but I will be happy with any loss that I maintain. I have been on a plateau for a while so I know I have to dig deep to see a difference. My cholesterol readings are much better since I lost some weight so that is a really good motivator.

I had 3 abdominal surgeries so my middle is not exactly tight but I know it could firm up a bit. I am doing excerise at home. I think I will buy my self some hand weight to up the resistance.

I go back to work on Monday and even though I like my job it was great to have time to do all the things I love. I baked,did some reading,crocheted and lots more. Retirement is still 2 years away for me so then I will pamper my self more. I want to work part time and hopefully get benefits. There aren't many jobs willing to pay benefits but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

2009 is a clean slate that has yet to be written on. emoticon emoticon

    Bernie2952, I'm keeping up with the Bootcamp workouts, challenges and the walking. How are you doing? Did you finally decide to sign up for it? Hope you're healthy, happy, and slimming down. emoticon

    Good for you, Bernie, for hanging in there. Oh how I WISH I had retirement to look forward to.....it's not in my future at all, and I've been running without benefits of any kind since 1994, so yet another incentive to stay healthy! LOL! But I think 2009 is gonna be a better year, sounds like everyone is revved up and ready to go....just gotta keep the momentum going now that the first of the year is past and when the hum-drums set back in! Keep on truckin', we'll get there one of these days! emoticon
