2012-
Dont like job - change it. ((DONE)) Left Jan - HIred back in April)
Dont like my weight - change it -- and hurry up and stop playing AT that goal... Power thru!
Eat right (stop dinking around) Move (ya know what that entails)
Plan how to leave work at work and get back to living again.

2011---
Reduce the number on the scale to my lowest weigh pre-accident/surgery. That was 185. I know - its only 7 lbs... but thats the first goal. From there... its a no holds barred.

PX90 - Lord help me.
WORKOUT - somewhere, somehow.. I will get in fitness minutes at least 3x a week.

5K - I want to complete at least one this year. I missed them last year and was bummed. It still hurts to walk - but with stretch and perserverance - comes achievement.

Empty nest again: break out the cookbooks. Something NEW once a week. New and HEALTHY!

Blood Sugar -- need to get it back under control. I got out the meter and did testing.. and its is JACKED UP! way up! So I will get that back under better control. The above items will all help this emensely.

STRAIGHT UP NOW.. My favorite sayings are:

No Sacrifice - No Victory! (gotta luv transformers)
Aw quite complaining - You can rest when you get home!
Pain is just weakness - leaving the body!
"Life's too short to live as a spectator. get up, and get in the game." (thanx El)
Dont you let anyone *INCLUDING YOURSELF* tell you that you CAN'T do it. See it - Want it - Believe it )- and DO it! Allie Vincent from Biggest Loser book
=====================================
--- 2010
New job... revise the schedule.
Bike accident in March included a horrid knee surgery fixing the menniscus (2) replacing the ACL and weeks and weeks of knee brace no move - no bend to get the kneecap to STICK back on. Yeah basically I tried to tear it off. So my workouts stopped. I had PT and busted thru it. Then I was forced to return to work early (or lose my job) - nice huh? I went back and they put me on every odd thing I shouldnt be doing. This included a 6 month write-up (legally marginal at best) and I suffered. nuff said. That was over mid December. So.. Moving on!
----2009
* Jan 2009 -- total inches lost w/ 3 month PT - 8 inches LOST!
* January 31, 2009 --- 1st 5k TEXMED in Houston. This will be 1/3rd of my 2009 goals! **finish time 55 min burning 695 cals!**
* Feb 28th - Connaco Rodeo Run (yes I ran) Time 50.11, polar 46min.
* March - New long shorts... size 10! TEN baby.. TEN!
* April 2009 -- Scratched cornea and hand gash accident.
* 5/08/09 -- Donated blood! They will take me again! YEA
* 5/09/09 -- Finished 5k at 46.29, burned 1100 cals!
**NOTE: I was layed off soon after this.. and lost my mind, and found some pounds back. Thanks to my sparkly sisters.. Im back.. IN FORCE.. ha! a force to be reckoned with!

Thank you for adding me as a friend. I will be returning the favor and look forward to learning more about you. I know Ren Fest was tied to the Society for Creative Anachronisms a number of years ago and don't know if they still are or not. I'm not much into getting into the garb but I do enjoy the fairs and some more or less related topics such as some of the glassware and mug designs as well as some of the metaphysical aspects. Have a great day.
