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.

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

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.

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.

Have you been out on your bike? Now that I have elderly parents to be looking after, plus my DH, I'm wondering if I'll get out for a bike ride. It is early in the season yet but right now I'm either busy with someone or it is raining. It'll happen!! I hope you've had some good rides already!!
