2014 Goals

Hi, I am Janette, and I am 54 years old. I have been on SparkPeople, MyFitnessPal and some other sites and groups for a year now. I live with my boyfriend and his son that is 9 years old, in Escondido, CA. I have a 7 yr old Beagle/Terrier dog named Cali that I have had since she was a small puppy. And we just recently got a black lab/boxer named DD that is about 1 yr old. I started My Fitness Pal on Mother's Day Weekend, 2013 at 170 Lbs so I have been doing this for almost a year now. My ...
Hi, I am Janette, and I am 54 years old. I have been on SparkPeople, MyFitnessPal and some other sites and groups for a year now. I live with my boyfriend and his son that is 9 years old, in Escondido, CA. I have a 7 yr old Beagle/Terrier dog named Cali that I have had since she was a small puppy. And we just recently got a black lab/boxer named DD that is about 1 yr old. I started My Fitness Pal on Mother's Day Weekend, 2013 at 170 Lbs so I have been doing this for almost a year now. My weight has been bouncing up and down a little bit all that time, but basically slowly going down. On 12-31-13 I was at 151.6 Lbs, and on 3-31-14 I was at 145.7 Lbs. On April 1, 2014 I started the Dash Diet at 144.8 Lbs. And today, 4-23-2014 I am at 147 Lbs, so the lowest I have got so far is 144.8 Lbs. I will probably keep going until I am around 130 Lbs or so. I ran my 1st 5 K in Sept 2013, something that I would have never thought of ever trying before I started this journey.

My Goals for 2014 are:

1: To get down to some where around 140-125, I will decide as I get closer to my goal just exactly where I feel comfortable at. I want to get back into the red dress in my picture from 2004 and look good in it.

2: To work to get completely off my blood pressure medicine if possible. I was already able to just recently get it cut in half twice, so I am almost off of it. And if that is the best I can do I am okay with that.

3: To lower my weight and cholesterol level to hope it helps with my gallbladder and gallstone issue, which I have already done.

4: Eat more whole foods and less processed foods daily, which I am already doing now too.

5: Playing with or walking my dogs for at least 15 mins daily, right now I have injured my oblique muscles so I can't walk them on the leash right now. But I should be starting Physical Therapy soon and hopefully I will be able to start walking them by leash again shortly.

6: drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day, which I have already been doing.

7: getting at least 8 hours sleep nightly, which I have already really be trying to do.

8. exercising for at least 10 mins daily, which I have already been doing a lot more than 10 mins.

9. stretching every day, which I am doing even more of now to help my oblique muscle issue.

10. Walking one more step every day, which I usually do.

11. weighing myself and logging it in at least once a month, I usually do it daily.

12. measuring myself and logging it in at least 4 times a year, I usually do it monthly.

13. Checking into the site for at least 5 mins daily, I usually am on the site several times a day for way more than 5 mins each time.

14. And the Last one is to have a very Happy and Healthy New Year, this is the one that I have to work at the most, lol.

emoticon I am still going to be careful for the doctor wants the knee cap to heal on own said can come and get cortisone shots for pain but not ready for the drug will until with my cream and wearing brace. Been a long 6 1/2 month since was hit in cross walk. I just feel they should have taken MRI sooner and told me why so much pain but now will still take it easy for as doctor said wasn't to wait see won't heal before any surgery. I agree....Just an active old lady...told 45-50 years body and is in healthy shape.....so not being able to go to gym or do walking it is getting me down....Thinking of asking if crutches would be ok to use. I don't see why not I could go out and not be walking on left leg or the right. Well this is my old story....and don't really want to give in....Mary

So, whatever you do this day, do it out of love, not only for others, but especially for yourself.
And make this day a day filled with happiness and love. (Barb)
