Woohoo and 2011 Goals

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

I had my first TOPS weigh in at TOPS for the year. I lost 2.5 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One pound lower than what I was at the beginning of December!

I also went to the gym after TOPS and did my first workout. I worked out for 15 minutes and did 1 mile on the elliptical. It was a little weird -- I was the only female on the ellipticals - all the others were young guys.

2011 Goals

1) Main objective to get to "Oneville" and be under 200 lbs.

2) Lose 60 lbs (5 lbs a month)

3) Exercise daily for at least 20 min.
--workout at least 3x's a week at gym
-- Strength 3x's a week

4) Drink a min of 8 glasses of water ea day.

5) Follow a low-carb diet

6) Participate in S.P. challenges and teams.

1) Read through the Bible (I have a One Year Bible I am reading)
2) Do some indepth studies
-- just started a book on the names of God

Major Projects:
--finish the two youngest daughters quilts
--get the last 10 years of pictures into albums

    LOL - I just read your goals, and that last one is a whopper - I, too, have at least 10 years of photos to take out of those sticky-backed photo albums and put onto acid-free paper albums, but it seems to take me 10 years just to do that. Congrats on your recent lose!

    I have been waiting to see what your goals are, especially the spiritual goals. What book are you reading on the names of God? I want to read more this year and that sounds like a good one to get.

    Ten years of pictures into albums is a big project. Had you already started doing that?

    You are doing great on your weight loss. Keep up the good work.

    GOOOOD for YOU! YAAAAAAAAY! emoticon

    Great set of goals too! Just be careful how low you go on the carbs... remember they are your brain's ONLY source of energy! (don't wanna end up like my mother-in-law!) emoticon

    I had a Bible In A Year that I followed last year -- I LOVED it because it was sO simple - you just picked it up and read each day's entry. THIS year though I am doing a "plan" and using my regular disciples Bible - and I like this too because I have all the notes right there in the Bible to consult. Either way, reading through the Bible each year is a great practice and just does wonders to help us grow in His Word! Blessings ... on ALL your efforts this year! emoticon
