Here is my ever-developing strategy from this day 9/20/19 forward and through any challenges I am part of through the end of 2019 and through 2020:

1.Increase my strength sessions to 35 minutes per session, 3x per week. (current level as of 9/20/19 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 when checking in with teams.
5. Blog 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:
a. Review this set of goals daily.
b. Revise and tweak monthly as necessary throughout the rest of 2019 and onward through 2020.

8.Keep on pushing no matter what!!! as of 9/20/19 -working at coming out of a slump but still pushing and making baby steps toward getting to my healthy weight!!!

Goals revised 9/20/19

Fitness Minutes: 312,549

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 41 years as of April 2019 :) and our 12 year old Beagle Oliver(the Happy Digger) We have two adult children, a daughter and a son. Our daughter lives across the street from us with her little family and our son currently resides about 11 hours away by car.Happily his job takes him back home about once a month.

I do a lot of volunteering including tutoring Math for grade school . 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 and then again on September 20,2018 to a handsome little boy named Miles.
We get to watch them currently 3 days for the two of them and one day with just Miles (and then some) a week. It is a joy to see their daily growth not only as individuals but as they interact with each other :D


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. I also audit classes at my Alma mater which is about a mile from my home.

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle? If yes, then consider joining the Biggest Loser Challenge that starts in early December. Each week 10 teams of 24 Active members do fun nutritional and fitness challenges.
