- Track my food and stay around 1500 calories a day: I know this works for me.
- Take my measurements: I have not done this at all. I plan to take them every two months.
- Overweight BMI: Move from the obese category to the “overweight” category by my birthday (May 22). For my height I will need to be 160 to be in the overweight category.
- Increase my fitness with exercise: I plan to keep up my fitness level and increase the rigor of my regime. Consistently I have exercised about one hour a day. Now that winter has set in , my main from of exercise will be walking, ice skating and snow shoeing. Returning to my academic position will challenge me to find other options for exercise time. My plan is to get in 6 hours a week of exercise even once I get back to work.
Here are some of my distance targets for 2012 for a number of exercises that are part of my life:
- 1850 miles biking
- 450 miles walking
- 8, 000 stairs climbed
