My fall goals

TODAY I recommit to ME! I am registered for a fall sprint triathlon (Spa Girl Tri at a resort - can't get much nicer than that)! Then, I will be running the TinkerBell Half Marathon in Disneyland in May 2015.

I lead a busy life, but no busier than others. That is not an excuse, it is just the facts that we all live by. I need to make time to focus on myself and get in the training needed to accomplish what I want.

Working full time often gets in the way of what I want to do, but I am planning on retiring May 1st, 2015, so then will have more time.

Fitness Minutes: 46,737

My Goals:
My goals for Fall:

1) bike/swim/run (one or two of these a day) 6 days a week

2) track EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth!

3) Hike 2 times a month

4) spend more time with our grandchildren

5) spend more time with God

My Program:
I have signed up for a sprint triathlon in November, so I need to get busy training. I have a program to follow, but am not always consistent, because of work, home life, etc. However, my goal is to swim 3 days a week, bike 3 days a week, and run/walk 3 days a week. Some of the activities should be done the same day, so I will have a day of "rest" or cross training. I need to find time to stretch and strength train also, because both of these will improve my stamina, my flexibility, and my ability to bike, swim, and run.

Personal Information:
I have been married 38 years, am mother of 3 WONDERFUL daughters, grandmother of 7 grandchildren (4 boys, 3 girls). I am a Nurse Practitioner who cares for the homeless population, doing what I believe God wants me to do.


Other Information:
I love to sew and quilt; I am hoping to reorganize my life to work on some unfinished projects, although I am not sure how that will happen. I love to read, but seem to only get time when I am sitting in a waiting room. I usually carry a book in the car "just in case".

Hello, Pam!
I was just reading through your page and profile and WOW! I am SO impressed. Triathalons, Half Marathons...it is just proof that if you live a healthy lifestyle, you can accomplish most anything you set your mind to.

I just wanted to stop by and wish you and the other Fuchsias best wishes from the Dazzling Diamonds. We hope you all Sparkle and Shine in all you endeavor to achieve, and that your journies to health and wellness are positive ones.

Hugs,
Marijo
