I'm Back Again

I was born in 1956, and this year I will be 57 years old. My challenge to myself is this:

Weigh in at 157 or less on my 57th birtday.

This is doable! I have 40 pounds to lose, and I have almost 9 months to do it. Here are the steps I will take to achieve this goal:

At least 1000 minutes of outdoor activity every month.

Eat less than 1700 calories every day.

Work my way up to, then maintain, 8 cups of water every day.

At least 1000 minutes of outdoor activity every month.

Eat less than 1700 calories every day.

Work my way up to, then maintain, 8 cups of water every day.

Re assess these every two months to make adjustments if necessary.

Note: I made almost the identical entry in my blog last year at this time, and I was right on track to achieve it, when, in June, my husband was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. I totally devoted myself to his fight for his life. My focus on my own healthy lifestyle went to the wayside, and I gained back everything and then some.

We are still in the midst of the fight against Paul's cancer, but I have determined to get myself back on track. I have already lost 8 of the pounds I had regained, and I'm remaking this challenge to myself.

My Christmas Wish For You
My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too .. Hugs, Rose
