My Goals:
1) to lose 10%of my weight before summer (June 1)

2) to exercise aerobically every day (currently I have a 33 day streak going!)

3) to beat my daughter in losing 24 lbs!! (we're having a friendly competition)

4) to lower my blood pressure

5) to significantly improve my cholesterol and triglyceride numbers before the Health Fair in March or April

My Program:
1) exercising aerobically every single day (if I fall off the wagon, I may not be able to get back on!) 33 days strong and counting!!

2) "dieting" but not on any particular program -- just healthy eating with appropriate serving sizes for now

3) will begin strength training and yoga program "soon"

4) avoiding all chocolate and candy because that's the sure way for me to fail!
