Here we are a few days into the New Year. I look back and think what happened to 2010?
It passed so quickly I feel like I watched a movie on fast forward.
There were sad times and good!
I want to focus on the good.
I have lost nearly 40 pounds now and feel so much healthier.
Oh yes for the first time ever I can wear a size 6 jean! (Ok not the slim painted on ones but the more age appropriate!)
Eventually I will post photos of the newer healthier me. I discovered a new love "Zumba" a Latin based dance aerobics class.
Because of working out, I can now walk up the 4 flights of steps to my unit at my workplace with out getting out of breath. (What a accomplishment!) Because of my brother's death most of my family has had a test called a echo cardiogram mine was a little scary the Cardiologist thought she saw a leaky valve and ordered a Stress echo cardiogram. That is a Treadmill test with a sonogram included I'm proud to say I passed with flying colors, at the time not passing out was my goal. Amazingly I did so well the cardiologist claimed I am I'm better shape than most of my co-workers. ( That makes me proud hard work paying off.)
My Goals this Year are:
- Maintain my weight loss perhaps lose 5-10 pounds more.
- Continue to exercise, adding more focus on strength training.
- Schedule more creative time.
- Workshops at least every other month
- Post here more often.
