I haven't posted in awhile...I have some things I want to post about...but I keep forgetting to upload photos. So they are on the back burner for now. Today I was thinking about some goals I'd like to set for myself. And hopefully stick it out to complete them, lol.

First and foremost on my list is getting my health back on track. This includes finding a new doctor (because I don't feel like I'm getting the care I need from the one I have), keeping better track of my diabetes, losing this excess weight (which is really not easy), and trying not to stress so much, especially about things I have no control over.

My second goal is to get a work out regime going and sticking to it. I LOVE walking. We have so many beautiful walking paths in and around Winter Haven, that you could walk a different one everyday for 2 weeks and not walk the same one twice! I do have a favorite one, though. I've been doing really good for almost 2 weeks now. I took the last two days off because my ankles hurt, but tonight I'm going to be back on track. I PROMISE! And I want to get back into boxing. I love boxing. I have alot of friends who go to boxing. But for some reason I just don't have the motivation to get up and go once I'm home. It's a really good workout...I wish I had room at home for a punching bag...I'd get one and work out at home. I have so much invested in boxing it's crazy.

My third goal is really a short term goal. I am knitting afghans for my two granddaughters. I am going on vacation at the end of the month. Not going anywhere...just staying home. My goal is to try to finish those afghans or get as close as possible before my vacation is over. I haven't really worked on them since I started walking again. Bad Nana, lol.

My final goal (for now) is to be a better person to my friends and family. I unfortunately suffer from depression as a side effect of my diabetes. Some days I just go off on tangents. Those of you who read my FB comments usually know what days those are. I really want to get that under control. I have been working on this and hopefully will continue to get better at controlling it. Medication, unfortunately for me, doesn't help. But I'm open for suggestions.

So what goals do you have set for yourselves?

We of the Ruffle Butt Club must stay together. I am pulling for you to get up and go since you got my get-up going again. It is so difficult and we must keep each other on track. I am envious of your boxing and can see how that would be beneficial unless it is not good for you heart. Walking is the ideal thing.

Good luck with all those goals you want to attain, sometimes we need a goal to get us motivated:-) I need to lose weight as well but as you say it's SO hard. I just don't have any willpower whatsoever! lol Good for you for being into boxing. My DIL goes to the boxing club once a week, she says it's great exercise.

It's great to be back to blogging and seeing what everyone has been up to:-) xoxo
