Happy New Year!

This past year has been a life changing year for me and I think 2011 can be just as momentous!

I have spent the last few days looking at what I want to accomplish in this new year as far as health related goals go.

Here they are;

I want to continue to lose weight until I get to my 'happy' weight.
I am thinking at this point that I am going to aim for that is almost 20 pounds to shed!

I will be taking a break from running for the winter because there is no safe place to run for me here on the Island (injury wise)but in the spring I will begin running again and I want to increase my speed, I would like to build up to a time of under 35 minutes for a 5k last timed run for 5k was close to 38 minutes. I think shaving 3 minutes off is doable!

I will continue to weight train ...this is my new found passion! I love that feeling of muscle definition on my arms, legs and abs!

And lastly, I will be leading some ladies in a weight loss support group starting on January 10th..I am super excited about this and my goal for me in this group is to be a positive role model for women just starting out on their weight loss journey!

Happy New Year my blogging friends!!!

    You have accomplished so much in 2010 and how wonderful that you are willing to lead a group of others towards their goals. I think it's a wonderful opportunity to you and will keep you accountable as you lose more and maintain. You are going to be one thin lady!

  6. You had such a great year! I'm greatly encouraged by your goals, methods and success. May the new year bring maby blessings!

  7. I'm curious too...island? All I can think is Prince Edward Island, because Anne of Green Gables is my favorite and I know it's in Canada. :)
