Nice day outside & 2011 Winter Challenge
Saturday, February 19, 2011
I've joined in the 2011 Winter Challenge to loose 5% of my weight
My goal is to loose (13.25 pounds).
I challenge myself to exercise 30 - 60 minutes daily
I challenge myself to make more of my exercise cardio
Today was a wonderful day for being outside
I still can't believe the High was 79F and it's February
After running errands in town today
I was able to get out and enjoy raking the yard
drinking water at the pic-nic table
and talking to neighbors.
Mrs. Amerson and I talked Mr Amerson into making us a row in the garden this year for some potatoes. We have 6 purple ones to put in the garden. (that will be interesting)
This eve I got out the Wii and did 44 min of walking WooHoo!!!!
Feels great knowing I can last a lot longer than I use to
When I first started exercising I couldn't even last 10 min without being out of breath.
I still get out of breath some in the yard but that's mostly allergic asthma and it's not as bad as it use to be.... maybe one day I won't have it any more.
I know I have my 2011 Winter Challenge posted on my main page but I want to post it here as well... I think it's important esp since it was one year ago when I got the report back that the knots on my thyroid showed no cancer...
I challenge myself to measure my food
I challenge myself to choose healthy snacks
I challenge myself to be accountable for what I eat and why
Why am I challenging myself? Because I'm tired of all the old excuses, blame, denial, and lack of control. I'm tired of not being able to walk a long distance without being out of breath. I'm tired of not finding clothes that fit. I'm tired of all the joint pain that this weight has brought on me.
Most of all because I love my family and I want to live. I don't want another cancer scare. I've had 2 already and that is two too many. It has been one year since my last surgery and my Blood pressure went out of control at that time... that was scary I could have died.... I have to get my control back
Change that last statement I am getting my control back
and this time it's for good
