Over the Last Year

Sunday, November 07, 2010

Accomplishment: Took 10 lbs off and kept it off. My lab work came back better and I am off blood pressure medication.
New goals: Lose 20 lbs in 6 months.
Exercise regularly (yoga 3 times a week) and/or walk for one hour every day.
Read 'The Spark' book... at least 2 chapters a week and follow the guidelines.
Now, this last year has just flown by. I find it hard to believe we are entering the holiday season again.
It got cool this weekend due to a cold front from the north hitting us here on the west coast of Florida and I just loved it. I miss the weather changes from up north and the color of autumn but I do enjoy our sunshine here. It keeps me positive and I look forward to this time of year for the weather. It really was an OK summer here as well. No complaints!
I am making new goals today for the next year. I don't want to wait for the end of the year. I want to be started and in progress by then! I want to make better low fat desserts and meals for the holiday and get my cholesterol lower. Since the heat has let up here I can get out and walk more or work outside. I have more energy.
I feel more positive and in control of my emotions and choices than I ever have. This has been a great improvement for me this year. I am more committed to making good changes in my life for me, mentally and physically.
I toast the day and everyone for all our accomplishments and for all our good work!

    Ten pounds is a loss to be proud of. Good news, too, about the medications. Do what you can one meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time. -- Lou
