I began this journey in December 2007 and want to continue it for the rest of my life. I made it for one year and am feeling quite proud that I am still working my plan.

2008 was my year to kick butt in getting healthy. I lost nearly 28% of by body weight from where I was December 2007. I maintained a stable BP after having high BP for quite a bit. I am still hoping I can stop the med soon. I got rid of a diseased gall bladder and have never felt better in terms of stomach issues! I have more energy and vitality. My mood is better and I can keep up with life's daily demands.

So I was thinking: 2009 will be the year I become stronger!! I recently blogged about my goals and will paste them here:
Goals for my health:
Improve strength: be open to doing more strength training exercises. I want to improve significantly my ability to be strong!
Increase endurance: improve my running as well as how long I can do a variety of exercises. I will run at least one 5K: with the goal to fun the entire way.
Tone body: work on the fat by turning it to muscle. I want definition without bulk!
Improve choices daily: both exercise and food and I am adding the need to improve my drink choices. I am addicted to coffee drinks and need to decrease the consumption of the ones with lots of calories.
Sleep at least 7 to 8 hours: don't cheat myself of sleep to meet my goals. This goal also seems to be difficult for me but I will be persistent with it.

    M&M's Thought Of The Day:

    Fitness in is earned, not bestowed - a process, not a magic trick - an investment, not a miracle.

    Don't Quit

    When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill.
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

    Hey you, I don't know if you've been on lately, but I was just reading a note you sent me 2008 where you commented about how we had similar starting and goal weights. Well, a few years later and I'd gone down to around 165 and now I'm back up to the low 180s - I see your tracker reads about the same. If we hang in there, and forgive ourselves we can do this thing. emoticon

    A Great Day

    "Today is a great day to be alive. The world is filled with positive possibilities, and those possibilities grow more numerous with each passing moment. Sure, there are challenges and disappointments and frustrations. And within those challenges, within those disappointments, are some of the greatest possibilities.

    Today is a great day to be alive because today you can make things happen. You can set a goal, chart a course, take stock of your situation and use it to create new value. Pay no attention to those who claim to know how things will be. Your future is yours to determine, and this is the day to make it great.

    You don't need anyone's permission to live with joy and fulfillment. You don't need to wait for certain circumstances to line up in a specific way. For today is a great day to be alive, to be productive, to be effective and to fulfill your best possibilities. And now is the moment to enthusiastically get busy making it all happen."-- Ralph Marston
