New Year and New Efforts to get and stay Fit

Joined July 4, 2009 - I am lucky to be retired and after years of putting on (with occasional small losses) the pounds, this is IT! I'm getting fit for good. I love to hike and do things outside, so I have lots of motivation.

I plan to keep up on exercising and eating healthy to get to my body fat down. The more hiking the better!!

Member Since: 7/4/2009

SparkPoints: 33,504

Fitness Minutes: 48,811

My Goals:
Lose some weight!!

While I kept up activity in 2013, I didn't lose any weight - I need to be more diligent tracking!

More fun goals - Take several backpack trips, lead more hikes, get more biking in, and do something new I've never done before- TBD!!

My Program:
I hike, snowshoe, go to the gym, and occasionally bike. I hope to challenge myself more and be more active. I need to watch my portion sizes better, too!

To get more specific (which I think I need to be!) :

Really try not to take seconds! (wait 15 min)

Do strength training or Pilates at least 2x a week
Take a hike or equivalent (eg, long bike ride, x-c ski) at least 2x a week
Get sweaty doing something aerobic at least 5 days a week
- which means EVEN if its raining!!

Personal Information:
I live in Lincoln, CA. I'm retired, so a big 'activity' of mine now is trying to get in better shape. I love to hike, snowshoe, x-country ski and bike.

Thanks for the blog encouragement. I just retired in September and am loving it. These short wintry New England days are risky though with temptations. And with holiday cheer everywhere it is a tough time to quit sugar but heck if not now when?
