My Goals:
To continue my exercise and healthy eating habits and lifestyle permanently (nearly 5 years and counting!) strive to live a healthy and happy life. It's the journey, not the event itself. Exercise, a variety of physical activities along with healthy food choices will extend and make my life better---happy and healthy.

Exercise and healthy low calorie eating, primarily vegetable protein and vegetables in order to reach a goal weight of 220-225 lbs by losing 40 more pounds and reduce my BMI (body mass index) to a lower, more healthy value.

1. Meditate every day
2. Continue my low carb program started 5/26/14.
3. Continue workout program - Daily 5 mile jog/runs (weather permitting.) With winter, add TurboFire; Gin Miller Step program; Zumba and treadmill.
4. Continue Weight and strength training 3 times per week using weights an Bands; increase when appropriate
