I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

My Goals:
1. Lose 5 lb. that I gained while my arm was fractured last summer.

2. Gain muscle strength

3. Increase energy levels

4. Eat healthier & slowly become a vegetarian.

5. Strengthen my bones because I have osteopenia.

6. Stop mindless snacking while reading or watching TV


My Program:
1. Food Tracking which will keep me honest

2. Working out 3-4 times/wk.
