Reading some blogs and other articles recently - my head is not sure how or what to do next in terms of "setting goals"...

But maybe...

*photography
*art

Getting more focused on doing (or re-doing) those activities back into my life??

My Goals:
I've never really been at a "normal" weight for my age. It's difficult to "picture" what I would actually look like when I reach goal. More importantly is how will I feel about myself when I reach goal? Will it frighten me? I know I will feel better. There was a brief time in high school where I lost 30 pounds and was pretty close to goal weight but still 15-20 pounds over what the "chart guessers" thought. Yet I remember how energetic I felt, how awesome it felt to try on smaller pants, guessing at size, only to discover that they also were TOO BIG, and going down to a smaller size. Really cool. So I want that feeling again.

I've see various relatives struggling in their 70's and 80's because they made poor choices in their diet, didn't exercise, and they are having an awful time. Yet, I do see some friends in their 80's and 90's who are really ROCKIN', in great health, energetic, and I want to be that way when I'm in my 80's or 90’s.

My Program:
Well, so far, the program is to just get this set up and figure out what is what, decide what to do, get some sleep, GET OFF THE INTERNET (including the wonderfully fun websites like this one!), and get some SLEEP!

EAT VEGGIES! I love them, but why won't I stop and prepare them for myself?

Go WALK and WALK/RUN

GET REBOUNDER SET UP!!

Do 15 minutes of DeCluttering 4-6 days a week (FlyLady!)

Okay, I'm not done with this list now. But I'm giving myself permission to stop here and revisit it later. It shouldn't go away anytime soon, as long as SparkGuy has enough squirrels running on the electric generators to keep powering the computers holding all of the SparkPeople pages!!

Then I can update this later with more profound coherent goals.



Personal Information:
*I'm north of Wichita, KS not far - if that's where you are, drop me a note! Maybe we can walk??

    Please, be gentle with your body.
    It loves you more than anyone or anything in this world.
    It fixes every cut, every wound, every broken bone, and fights off
    so many illnesses, sometimes without you even knowing about it.
    Even when you punish it, it is still there for you, struggling to keep you alive,
    keep you breathing. Your body is an ocean full of love.
    So please, be kind to it. It’s doing the very best it can.

    Happiness is like peeing in your pants..
    Everyone can see it, but only you can feel it's warmth.

    Strength and courage aren't always measured in medals and victories.
    They are measured in the struggles they overcome.

    The strongest people aren't always the people who win,
    they are the people who don't give up when they lose.
