Happy New Year

As you may remember, my big New Years Resolution will be an exercise program - details still under development as I will be allowed to tweak this as I go along.

Had a brain storm this morning. I am going to move the bed against the wall in the guest room and turn it into an exercise room. I can keep my mat, hand weights, etc. out for easy access. Will also keep a calendar & pen on the stand to track my progress.

Now, why didn't I think of this before?

165.0 lb Lost so far: 21.0 lb.    Still to go: 33.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Awesome! Enjoy your new space! I did the same thing ... It does keep exercise top of mind when you pass the room. ;-) Have a fabulous year!

Paula - think I was blocking out the idea so as to avoid the exercise. No more!

Bren - I've never cared for the exercise log on FS (or maybe it just doesn't like me). We can pick up a calendar and a clock from the discount store and finish this plan on the cheap.

Helen - It means a lot that I have your approval - after all, I had to start somewhere!

Javadali - It will certainly work for me because we have such a small house that I cannot avoid passing this room!

Yvonne - for some of us the Holidays last a little longer - nothing wring with that! Hope you continue to enjoy the New Year with the love of your family. We can share exercise notes at an appropriate time.

Bren, I got that cow calendar too so I could send it to my sister who lives where there aren't any Chick Fil-A restaurants. She had wondered why a chicken restaurant has a cow as a mascot.
