My weight loss journey

It's time to be healthy and to have more energy, and to be kind to my knees. I'm 56 years old and I've been skinny most of my life--until I hit the 40's, then it all piled on. Spark People is so motivating to me! Now I'm working out daily, lifting weights, doing exercise DVDs, and logging my meals. I feel so much better living this way.

My Goals:
I want to feel better, and have more energy for enjoying my grandchildren. I need to lost about 90 lbs.

For the month of July:
1. I'm on a SP bike challenge to ride 200 miles in July
2. I'm on a SP walking challenge to walk 45 miles in July
3. Continue working on upper body strength
4. Continue sit-ups.
5. Continue other strength dvd's--finish Jillian Michaels' 30 DS
6. Continue elliptical
7. Start swimming
8. Eat within my calorie range at least 28 days out of 31

For the month of June:
1. bike 150 miles DONE--Actually did over 200 miles 6/30
2. walk 30 miles --almost done--bad knee month, and only walked 19 miles 6/30
3. elliptical trainer--improve from 30 minutes to 60 minutes
DONE 6/30
4. Complete Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred
PARTLY DONE--did Level 1 10 times
5. Be able to do 100 girls push-ups (now at 42 in a row) STILL TRYING
6. Be able to do 100 sit-ups every day without stopping <

My Program:
Cardio and strength every day. I don't plan out my "rest" days, but there are always a few days each month where I'm either too busy or too tired, and so those become my rest days.

Cardio:
can walk up to 3.5 miles on a "good" knees day

bike up to 13 miles at a stretch DONE--up to 22 miles as of July 1

elliptical trainer

want to start swimming again

Strength:
do situps and pushups every day.

Have some workout dvd's that I alternate among: Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, The Biggest Loser Yoga Workout, Turbo Jam

Other Information:
My husband and I have two children and three grandchildren. I love to play piano (I play for our church), scrapbook, and read. Lately I've started enjoying less sedentary things like riding bikes and walking with friends. My favorite show is The Biggest Loser.

Thank you for the Spark Goodie and the prayers!
I am hoping that when I have my oncologist appointment this Tuesday, I will be closer to having some answers as to what exactly is going on.
