I Ought to in October!

I have a goal this year to find a new healthy habit to incorporate every month. I have planned the months according to what I feel is important for my particular goals (see: A Whole Year to Look Forward To Blog). This will be my roadmap and accountability schedule.

I have a goal this year to find a new healthy habit to incorporate every month. I have planned the months according to what I feel is important for my particular goals (see: A Whole Year to Look Forward To Blog). This will be my roadmap and accountability schedule.

First of all, my name is Colleen and I will reach my 60th birthday in September. I came back to Spark People because I retired and began to pack on the pounds. I have psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and have dealt with two melanoma incidents and surgeries. This is not the prize at the bottom of the box I thought I was getting.

In January, I learned to stop making so many judgements. This is a work in progress.

I have decided to explore my feelings this month. I am determined to find as many resolutions as possible.

In March, I tried on a few new kinds of exercise.

April means I have a lot to learn. I plan to find something I enjoy reading about and learn how to do it.

May was about getting in touch with "me".

June was just a relaxer.

July was supposed to be jivin'...it wasn't.

August is a time to achieve in many areas of my life, especially health.

September was the big 60 and I'm doing my best in a long time.

Thanks for your comments on my page. What's the title of the cookbook you got from Amazon? Maybe I'll get one too emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blog and for your comments. I'll have to see if I can locate Clean Eating magazine, I don't think I've ever seen it but it sounds interesting. Right now most of the recipes I use are from SparkPeople because they include nutrition information and are easy to add to my tracker. Today is day 1 of change (again). I've had a lot of "day 1's" but hopefully this will be the start of a more successful journey.
