2014 - Will This Be The Year?

You would think that, at my age (and I'm no spring chicken!) I'd have this whole "healthy lifestyle" thing down pat. After all, I've been at this for many years, and as a home care nurse, I see the results every single day of the destructive things we can do to ourselves that eventually make us unable to live our lives to their fullest.

Yeah, well....................... think again.

My brain tells me that I *know* what to do..............but something inside me ...

My brain tells me that I *know* what to do..............but something inside me keeps the signals from getting to where they need to go.

This year, for many reasons, has to be my year that it finally works.......that it finally sinks in.................that I do this - for me. If I am the best me I can be for *me*, then I can be the best me I can be for those I love...............

My Goals:
1. Learn to rely less on "numbers" and more on "look and feel"

2. When looking at numbers, be realistic in what I can attain and maintain and still feel healthy.

3. Maintain some kind of exercise program.

4. Stay active and healthy so I can play with The Princess....and camp......and bike......

My Program:
Counting calories, portion-control, and increasing exercise are things that have worked well for me as long as I do them! My exercise needs to incorporate some ST.........and has for a very long time.......

Personal Information:
My name is Linda, and I live in Central Ohio. I'm 58, I'm a nurse, and have finally learned to appreciate my own health. What I still haven't learned is to take better care of me by putting myself first in the "taking care of" department. That's a very hard thing to do and I plan on trying to be better about it in 2014.

Other Information:
I love to travel, love to camp, and love to bike (as in the pedal kind!). I also love to read but don't do nearly as much of it as I should!

Hey Linda, nice to see you check in. I know I've been absent quite a bit, working to get back on track. Since we've adopted a Catahoula Leopard Hound from a local shelter it has gotten better. I am still loving the bakery and can hardly believe it has been 5 months since I started but it has. Oh how time flies!!! Still working to lose weight and am getting better at sticking to what I know, had to get back into the habit of asking myself why I wanted something.

Hugs, hope all is well.

I agree about losing contact I swore I would not let that happen. But life has gotten in the way, I have another grandchild (which I am taking care of), DH has some medical issues which are stressing me out.

Hope you are doing well and life is treating you well.

Linda, thanks for all your helpful and insightful posts! I always learn something reading them, even if it is only how to deal sensitively with people. emoticon emoticon

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, "In Memory of My Dear Friend, Little_Queen." The Mary Pickford quote was one of her favorites. Have a blessed day.

Linda thank you so much for the hot chocolate. I can use one after a very long day at the gift show.
