PANTHER GOALS AND ACTION STEPS and OATH

THE BLACK PANTHER OATH

I do solemnly pledge:
that I will do my best to eat healthy and within my calorie range,
that I will exercise to the best of my ability,
that I will watch my portions and avoid mindless eating,
that I will avoid or limit unhealthy foods,
that I will try to get enough sleep,
that I will stretch myself out of my comfort zone,
that I will always try to make healthy choices even when stressed,
that if I slip, I will get back on track with the very next opportunity,
that I will keep a CAN DO attitude, or ask for Help,
and that I will support my fellow teammates

Because I am a Black Panther
And every Panther has the heart of a hero.

PART 1 - I Plan-----

To get out of the 180s. (Goals)

To reach this goal by FEBRUARY 10.

To enjoy the experience and feel proud of myself for taking steps to improve my life.

Action Steps to Goals

1. Cardio 6 days a week
2. 25+ grams of fibre every day.
3. No unplanned treats
4. -500+ CICO daily


INFO about me...

I am 60 years old and I started at 264 pounds in 1998 and have been trying to get down to 150 pounds since then.

I retired recently and I am planning on more active days than I had during my 30 years as a secretary.

I have rheumatoid autoimmune disease (RAD) and osteoarthritis, which sometimes makes it difficult to exercise but I know that I always feel better afterwards. Sometimes you just have to push yourself to get going and once you're going, the pain often goes away.

I've been married for 36 years and counting. We have no pets or kids by choice.

I'm close to my family. In this pandemic age, I have been hiking with my dad rather than going to his place for dinner weekly. This is great as I'm not enjoying the fat and calorie-laden meals he likes to prepare and I'm getting exercise, too.

My 4 sisters and I have been staying in close contact during the pandemic including having 2 Zoom birthday parties for my second sister on April 18 and mine on May 9, which were fun.

In normal times, I visit and stay at various sisters' houses during the year.

I'm a music-a-holic especially alternative-rock and classic rock and go to a lot of concerts with my husband. We actually had 10 concerts booked this year but that's not happening now. Darn pandemic.

I love reading. My favourite genres are mysteries, romantic suspense and YA fantasy and sci-fi novels.

I also love reading cookbooks and fitness books.

I love exercising to DVDs and have over 200 workouts. My favourite forms of exercise are strength training, dance, kickboxing, hiking and swimming.

I love native art and most of the art in our house is of the native sort.

I am learning how to grow cannabis.

I enjoy cooking and love that I can now cook whenever I want and not just on the weekends when I had time. I'm looking forward to trying more new recipes this year.

Personal Information:
I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband, named Jake. I have no kids by choice but 13 nieces and nephews, whom I love and spoil. My birthday is May 12, 1960 and I've been married to Jake since March 24, 1984.

I'd rather listen to music than watch TV. However, that said, I LOVE All Rise and the various cooking competitive shows like Top Chef and Masterchef.

    I added you as a friend...sent another message too..then I was checking out your page...love your renovated kitchen. You will definitely understand my stress of moving! You've got me motivated to try to start weighing in too. You have no idea if you've actually made ANY progress if you don't weigh. Talk to you soon. kelly

    Hi Joanna ~ WOW ~ you guys did a great job on your kitchen renovation ....it was certainly 'different' looking! lol.....you have to tell me, how long did all that take? Every once in a while I think about having mine redone and I just know I couldn't take all the disruption. Not to mention we don't have the money LOL. But it's nice to dream. Yours sure came out beautifully. Well, I haven't started a new book yet ~ I go thru periods where I read 10 books a month, then some times when it's only 1 every couple weeks or so. I have some cookbooks on request at the library and I'm hoping to get them soon ~ this is the time of year I actually enjoy cooking. Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! take care, tracy

    Hey Joanna ~ YES! you should definitely do a photo album here on spark...I'd love to see your pics and favorites too! I'm heading back out to the sunroom to continue reading this WEIRD book before I start dinner..The Intruders....I'm halfway thru and STILL don't know what's going on. Sometimes I keep reading books because I just KNOW it has to mean something and then it doesn't and I feel SO like I've wasted so much time...ever do that? Well, I'm Hoping this book is going to have some great surprise that makes it all make sense...I look forwad to seeing your pics. Later! ~ tracy
