*I started December 28, 2010 at 283, a tight size 22 and was not doing one bit of exercise. Today December 18, 2010. It’s been almost one year since I started losing weight. I’m working with an online trainer until March 1st and it’s really helping. I’m a size 13 heading toward a 12 now. I’ll go ahead and leave my old goals on here, down below, but I think it’s time for some new ones for my 2nd year of working at good health. I completed many of my goals from last year, some were unreasonable, some I may still do. But it’s time to start fresh!
I pick odd goal weight-numbers that sound really good to me, for no reason whatsoever.
Wear a size 13 Success!
Wear a size 12. Success!!
Size 10 Reached!
I started running again. And this time, without a lot of extra baggage, it’s soooo much easier. So my first goal is to be ready to run my first 5k in 10 years: Cupid’s Chase in Albuquerque on February 11. Success!!! I finished 3rd in a field of 4 in my age group :)

One of my goals is to have a daily yoga practice for the rest of my life. So my goal for 2011 is to do yoga at least 3 times a week-sometimes taking a class, usually doing home practice.
Buy a running skirt!!!!! My legs look great now. I want one! Success!!! I got a sweet black running skirt with under-shorts. Bought at REI for $19 marked down from $38. I love, love, love it!
Run an Ultra Trail run: 12K, 18K, 50K, whatever. Started training for this goal in May of 2011.

Camping and hiking trip for at least 3 days in the Grand Canyon –scheduled for Sept. ’10—-We went! Jeff hiked across the whole canyon in one day. We, together, hiked the rim but were unable to get permits to hike down into the canyon and stay for days as we’d planned. We tried 2 separate times, but no go. I’m still considering this goal though.
Hike all 60 hikes with my daughter from the : “60 Hikes Around Albuquerque” book. (uh, I realize now that this will take a lifetime!)
Go to New York City for 2-3 week vacation with husband in May of 2011 for vacation/to celebrate my weight loss

Run or walk the 6 miles loop around the lake at Stoney Creek Park in Michigan (I stopped being able to do this, years ago and really want to do it again.)— Success! It was like 900% humidity and it almost killed me but I did it. Also rented bikes and rode around the lake. OLD fashioned bike with no speeds. Again in horrible humidity. Again, almost KILLED ME!
