WOMEN AGES 50+ FOR SEPTEMBER 2018

nw1izcipmwcw.jpgpi7n4ihh1hx6.jpg

I read somewhere that "September is the new January". This is based on school starting in many parts of the world in September. Even if this isn't true for you, this is one more good time to make a fresh start on your goals and resolutions for your life.

How did you do with your goals and resolutions for August?

What goals and resolutions do you have for September?

My journey to health and fitness has been successful in large part to the support I've gotten from the women on the "Women Ages 50+" thread. Thank you to all of you who have supported and encouraged me and welcome to all who are joining us for the first time.

Don't forget to bookmark this page so you can find it again.


My word for 2018 is "tenacity".


Resolutions for August (with end of the month comments)
*Do what's necessary to deal with back pain that came on suddenly (yes)
*Act the way I want to feel (yes)

Resolutions for September
*keep following the doctor's directions
*log food and water daily

    Thanks Barbie for getting us started on a new month again. Spent the afternoon going to movie and dinner for our anniversary which was August 23. We had planned to do this last Saturday but got a call from DH's doctor telling us to go to the emergency room. So we spent 5 hours there instead. Enjoyed the movie, Christopher Robin. Taking DD to airport early tomorrow so she can catch a plane for Denver. She and her BF are taking a trip to CA and Mexico. She will be gone for a week. They are touring haunted places in CA and staying with my cousin in Mexico.

    Goals for September are to go to water exercise consistently and cut sugar in my diet.

    Everyone take care, Sue in WA

    Happy September! I have mixed feeling about it--I love fall, but we all know what follows . . .

    Barb I love your analogy--"September is the new January". I am a school teacher and September is definitely January for me. A new beginning!

    My goals for September:
    • Continue walking on a daily basis
    • Continue tracking
    • No eating after 6 p.m.
    • Weigh in October 1st at 143 (currently 145.3) I am hypothyroid and it makes me very slow. :blush:

      Good luck everyone!
