Tomorrow I am beginning an exciting adventure. It’s my birthday and the starting point for a new plan.
Throughout my whole life I’ve always pictured myself as healthy and strong. I’ve also always assumed that I’d live to at least age 100. When you are younger it’s easy to make big statements about what you’re “going” to do! But, as the years of my life pass, I’ve really had to take stock. I’ve had to decide what actions need to accompany my big statements.
One action I’ve decided on is to publicly post fitness photos of myself annually. It will be kind of like a birthday gift to me. As I explained in a previous post, I’ve noticed that one group of people who post such photos are those who are committed to maintaining their fitness over the long haul.
I’m officially joining that group tomorrow.
We all know that we SHOULD eat well and exercise consistently year after year. And, if you’ve studied fitness even just a little, you know of all the mind boggling benefits you’ll enjoy for that consistency. BUT… still it’s sometimes hard to stay focused.
Setting goals and regularly reviewing progress against those goals can help you stay on track. To set goals, you need to know your starting point and you need to be able to evaluate your progress from that starting point. Here are some different ways you can create a goal setting and tracking system that works for you!

Maybe an unusual exercise partner might help?
Since I only got about 1 hour of sleep last night (arg!), I can’t ignore this post from Muscle And Fitness Hers.
Obviously no one ever wants to get hurt. Here are a few tips to consider / learn / remember / start doing / stop doing so that you can stay healthy!
Don’t have time to go to the gym? Is it too cold, icy or wet outside? Don’t have the money to join a gym? It seems like too much effort to get to the gym?
OK, that happens. But, here are some ideas you can use at home or at work to make sure your body still gets a workout! And, did you know that the 30 or 60 minutes of daily exercise you need doesn’t have to been done all at the same time? You can do these little things throughout the day and without really trying you’ve got your exercise done for the day!!
Here are a few ideas and I’m sure you can come up with lots of other good ideas!
Since I am a mere 64 years young this month, people like these are my role models and inspiration.
