My Goals:
In 2007 I decided to lose weight, get fit, stop eating junk and regain control of my life.
...and so, for the first time in many years, I applied myself 100%. I had my moments of self doubt, I allowed myself to be bought down by negative comments but gradually I grew a thicker skin. I lost the weight, I got fitter, the junk food has gone and my life is gradually getting back on track. There's so many things I still want to achieve; they seem completely out of my reach but so did losing weight. I never thought I'd be exercising like a woman possessed but I am. I never thought I'd stop eating chocolate for lunch but I did so now I'm aiming high. I might fall on my face, I might get laughed at but one thing I will never do is look back on my life and think - I wish I tried - What if? - If only...

My Program:
I pay attention to what I eat. I do a lot of home cooking and this year grew a lot of my own vegetables.
I set myself a target of between 120-140mins of fitness a day - more if can.
I track everything to keep myself accountable.

Other Information:
I'm studying for a diploma in genealogy, love spending time in the garden, reading a good book, watch a film - I love horror, fantasy, supernatural... research my family tree, I have a fascination of Jack the Ripper, love cross-stitch, cooking, knitting, writing...I enjoy meeting friends for coffee or lunch and catching up with their lives, sharing wishes and hopes...

Same here. I had an invite out and was a tad concerned to see it snowing quite determinedly when I got up this morning, but by the time we were ready ti leave it had melted, and we got home just before it started again, and now it has stopped again. Everything is melty, which is why it could be really dodgy if it freezes tonight.
It is one of those things where I wish it would just make up its mind! :-)
But this is typical UK 'changeable' weather, and we are stuck with it. :-)
