Seeking Balance - While Making 2015 My Best Year Yet!

Okay, so the hit and miss checking in isn't working . . . so, I'm gonna really try to do better at balancing my time on the computer, working at the bench and gettin' movin'!!!

I have to especially take care of my caloric intake . . . especially now that DH has retired too. He's the cook in the family and wow, does he ever love to cook!

I am not going to live my life not eating his cooking, but with that being said, I don't have to eat everything he makes or ...

I am not going to live my life not eating his cooking, but with that being said, I don't have to eat everything he makes or serves me!!! So, portion control is the word for the day . . . well, right after MOVE IT!!! Because I'm not going to live my life in bad health.

I wanna feel good, have energy and many happy days!!!

Life is for living . . . . Let's get out and do it!

======================

Thanks to SparkPeople, these are the daily goals I will endeavor to stand by for the rest of my life:

#1 MOVE IT! every day

#2 Stretch, Yoga or Qi Gong every day

#3 Control portion size every meal

#4 Nothing between meals (planned snack okay)

#5 Focus on Stress Reduction

I am doing this for me. This is my way of

Making 2015 My Best Year Yet!
I am thrilled by the changes 2014 brought to my life.
2015 has all the promise to be my best year yet.

I will continue to pursue and incorporate REALISTIC lifetime goals to ensure my success today, this year and for the rest of my life because I deserve it.

My goals 2014 were a SUCCESS!!!! My goal was to settle in to a new, healthful routine by making better choices and developing new habits. Specifically,

#1 finding more ways to incorporate fitness minutes into my days (5 or 10 minutes of something is better than zero minutes of nothing!),

#2 eating smaller portions and thus not over-taxing my system, and

Those simple habits set me up to maintain the initial weight loss.

So my goals for 2015 are to continue doing it right. I want to drop another 10 pounds.

Focus #1: Physically, continuing to MOVE IT! (aerobic, strength and flexibility) Again, it is amazing what a difference just 10 minutes can make!

Focus #2: Improving my diet by adding more freggies and whole foods to help minimize health issues lurking on my horizon (pre-diabetes, IBS/diverticulitis, etc.).

Focus #3: Creating and maintaining balance in my spiritual/emotional well being with relaxation, meditation/prayer.

Focus #4: Live MY life.... be the Sassy Cat I was meant to be!

My Goals:
My goals are live MY life and to be the best that I can be. . . . for the rest of my life.

Ultimate success is in making one good decision, followed by another good decision.

I'm not going to let me down!

My Program:
Be accountable.
1. Eat responsibly. aiming for low-end of calorie range.

2. Keep it moving!

3. Weigh in & measure on the 1st


Personal Information:
Nestled in a little valley in the midst of the tree covered mountains of Southwestern Oregon with my husband and our 6 pound Yorkie named Bad Leroy Brown, I am having the time of my life!

I'm feeling better than I have in years and have never been happier in my life.



Other Information:
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'WOW, what a ride!'"
