How about some ice fishing?
First goal: Be at 170 by the middle of April 2011. If you have been following my blog, you know I did not make this goal. On Christmas Eve I was still at 173. Being at 170 by April was just not realistic for me and where I am in my life metabolism wise. I lost 18 pounds this year for a total (you all know this already) of 40 pounds off. As I make my 2012 goals, I will keep in mind that I basically lose about . 5 pounds a week.
Second goal: Keep up my fitness level and increase the rigor of my regime. Yes. Resounding YES. I have added distance and speed to my cycling regime, I jogged up thousands of stairs across the year and increased my time and distance for walking. I have never felt so physically fit as I am now, even though I know I have a ways to go.
Third goal: Track miles walked and biked for the year. Yes. I walked at least 442 miles this year. I did not always carry my pedometer, that is why it is “at least.” (So, Julie, I made our walking challenge! My biking total stands at 1583 miles. I do not know how many stairs I climbed, but it is about 5, 000.
Fourth goal: I would also like to start the Couch to 5km by February 19. No, I did not even start. I decided that I would like to be down around 160 before I start to actually run. It is just too hard on my body.
To all of you: Happy New Year! May this new year see you exceed your own goals for health and fitness. TTFN and thanks for stopping by, Michele
