Time to set a new goal.

I love to hike, but I'm severely out of shape. I've gained 20 lbs. since I met my husband, and I'm not very happy about that. He's gained a lot more than I have, but has a harder time getting motivated to lose weight than I do. Maybe if I can get started he will join me. :)

I feel like 2016 is going to be a high energy year. I'm already feeling the energy right now in December, which has spurred me into joining Planet Fitness. They have a 30 minute circuit training session that I really enjoy, and I have met with the fitness trainer, who has put me on a plan I think I can stick to.

My ultimate goal is to lose 36 lbs., so that my final weight will be 145 lbs. I feel that a perfect weight for my height.

Crossing my fingers in hopes this time I will have the determination and discipline to stick with it for the long haul.

Personal Information:
I am married living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I have led a mostly sedentary lifestyle and I really wish it wasn't. I really want to be outdoors more and go hiking. Maybe camping. I want to be able to hike for miles and miles and not be overly winded and have my body crash for the rest of the day after only a few hours. I want to eat healthier, and feel better about myself.

I'm glad I can be of help! As for kickboxing, my gym doesn't offer it either so I usually follow a Sparkpeople kickboxing video or look up others on youtube. I'm glad there is a part of your circuit that provides something for you too. :)

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Climb The Mountain


I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."Author unknown
