2009 Goals

At the end of 2008, I made some goals (most of us do). But this year I wanted to let all of you hold me accountable. On Jan 1, I weighed a record 223 pounds (Actually it was not a record. When I looked at my 2008 goals, my starting weight was also 223, but look where that goal got me!) My first goal is to lose about 20 pounds by the end of May. Here is a graph of my progress so far:

The red line is the goal, the jagged blue line is my progress. About 16 to go. Have started using Wii Fit and started some jogging. I'm up to about 10 minutes of jogging. Goal there is to be able to run a 5K run at the end of February.

Fringe benefit, my resting pulse seems to have dropped to just over 60. That's good for me. But my balance in the Wii Fit exercises still needs a lot of work. It gives you your age. Depending on the day, my Wii Fit fitness age has varied from 67 to 45. I'm 61.

If you would like to share your goals, feel free. If you have any good ideas, please share.

Love, Steve
