A step in the right direction

Today I stopped at the neighborhood rec center and signed up to use their fitness center.  I think that is a pretty good investment for my Christmas cash.  I got the skinny (yes I said skinny) on the times it is open and am sitting down tomorrow to write out my game plan. I have been scanning several blogs and have gotten a lot of ideas of where I want my blog to go. Hope I don’t offend anyone by stealing an idea here or there.  Please feel free to do the same.

Here is a list of what I want to see happen in 2012:

  1. loose 75 pounds (0/75)
  2. stay between 1200 and 1300 calories for 365  days (0/365)
  3. blog at least 3 x’s a week (0/156)
  4. take a photo everyday (0/365)
  5. focus on my creative expression 1 time a week (0/52)
  6. take time for me everyday (0/365)
  7. send at least one letter to someone in the mail 1 time a month (0/12)
  8. go to the gym 2 times a week (0/104)
  9. do body measurements once a week (0/52)

Those are the target goals.

What else would I like to see happen:

  1. I want to sell a picture or two in a magazine and be published.
  2. I want to sell some of my cards in a few shops around here
  3. When spring comes I want to dust off the bike and ride the bike path
  4. I want to walk a 5k
  5. I want to do well in school (went back to school after 20+ years) 27 credit hours to go!
  6. cut down on my pop intake and drink more water
  7. I want to be able to shop at any store and buy clothes from anywhere in a med or large.
  8. When I lose the weight I’m gonna jump out of a plane!

Check back with me…This is just a short list of manageable things.  I can always use a word of encouragement, a new blog idea, what you think about a question I may ask.  My only rule is if you ask me a question make sure that you really want to know the answer.

I plan to post a pic as well so I can keep track of my progress visually.  Here’s to a healthy 2012!

A joke in my circle of friends is that some have swallowed a tapeworm to eat their fat, so as this journey begins I will swallow mine at midnight tomorrow.  Stay tuned for pics of him as he grows.  Here is what he looks like before I swallow him.  I still need to name him.

Till next time…
