Making it Happen

2013 was a great year:

I hit my goal weight (for a hot minute).
We hiked in Shenandoah National Park and on the Appalachian Trail.
We hiked in Colorado.
We hiked the Inca Trail in Peru to Macchu Picchu.
We took a river cruise down the Rhine River through The Netherlands, Germany, and France.

And that was great, but 2014 is going to be EPIC!!

I am going to set a goal of 124 pounds, for a total loss of 60 pounds.

I am going to stay active in team challenges.

I am going to set a goal of six fitness classes per week, and three half marathons in 2014.

We are going to travel west and do a lot more hiking in the Dakotas, Utah, and Colorado.

We are going to plan another Fall hiking trip -- perhaps Bhutan, or Nepal...?

Life is exciting! Every day is a gift!

You have a good point there. I think that's what bothers me is that I don't feel like he's happy for me that I can make something of myself. I also know he doesn't enjoy his work, but I have found something I enjoy doing. It also seems that he is somewhat of a controlling person, and likes to sway every decision I try to make. But I'm guilty of letting him. For years I was mentally unstable and he had to take charge. After 8 years of stability he still doesn't see me as strong.

Was it you who recommended the Beck Diet Solution? If so, thanks so much! I've just started it and I think it is going to make a big difference in my life.

Thanks for your comments, Yes I do speak Vietnamese as working in the countryside makes that pretty important. Glad to hear that you love this country you would be amazed at the rapid changes though!
