My Inner Slytherin

Monday, November 09, 2009

For this week's challenge for the Challenge of Harry Potter, I need to demonstrate the ambitioniousness of Slytherins by discussing my goals.

When I first came to SP over 2 years ago, my goal was to reduce my weight from 194 to 165. I have been able to get it down to between 172 and 175. I would like to be down to at least 165 by my birthday next April.

A key health goal is to decrease my cholesterol levels. When I first came to SP my cholesterol level was over 200. It's in the 190's now. My goal is to get it down to the 180's by my next physical.

Another major goal is to exercise at least 4 days a week. Some weeks I accomplish this, but other weeks I don't. I need to establish consistency.

If I can achieve these 3 goals, I will be happier and healthier!

    Oh, Helen, I was just told that I have HIGH cholesterol by my Dr too! If you've got any tips, that'd be gr8!

    Ambition? Helen, you're one of the MOST ambitious people I know! Sooo... you already GOT the MAIN ingredient for achieving these little steps, a.n.d.... YES, I call them little, b.e.c.a.u.s.e.... when I look back on all that I've known & seen of YOU- of YOUR accomplishments... this is peanuts, my dear friend- plain- - - and simple.

    Love, yer'

    Great Goals, Helen. Have a great time in Orlando. It is rainy and 50 here this morning so wish I could stole away in your luggage.

    Hugs, Sunny

    Wonderful goals by the way... health is our most precious asset, and being ambitious to be healthy is the best possible ambition.

    GREAT goals! I know it is hard to see the finish line for these goals. But you have managed to put it all into perspective. I know you will accomplish them. Go to it GAL!

    And you were one of my first friends as well. And a great one you have turned out to be.
