Linda's starting over

Back again and starting over. I'm now at 307 and very uncomfortable with myself. But, the important thing is I'm trying again.

Fitness Minutes: 36,470

My Goals:
My goal is to become healthier. I'm not really looking at what the scale says. It's more about how I feel, physically and mentally.

My Program:
Eat some fruit with breakfast.
Eat some fruit or vegetables at lunch. Make lunch at home.
Eat a more well rounded dinner.

Cardio on the treadmill.
Strength training- haven't decided yet.
Core training- still researching. Might try pilates.

Other Information:
The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.

The Iowa Arboretum is near the towns of Luther, Boone, and Madrid. It's out in the country, watch for the signs. It's near a 4H camp.
