5) never smoke cigerates again (quit date February 27, 2016 5:30pm)
6) fallow my check list daily
7) lose body fat (between 22 & 25%) fitness level sounds good to me. (18 to 22%) athletic level seems to skinny. A goal specific date is unclear and seems unimportant at this time to me As of today 6/29/17 I am 25.9% bf.

At least 20 mins on my stationary bike, using my stair stepper, free weights, body weight exercises, resistance band, jump rope and yoga stretches to help with body stiffness.

2)Nutrition plan
A) I am trying to distance myself from junk food (fast food, candy, chips)

List Trigger situations and foods (red light) that trigger your over consumption of calories.
My triggers are – chips
Plan - replacement habit or behavior - Idk, its an on going problem at the moment
My positive behaviors – one day I had a chip craving and as I walked to the store I decided to keep walking. My craving subsided and I walk and all time high of 25 miles. Both actions seem extreme to me.
And I have learned I am an avocado shape.

What have you learned along the way that has really helped you?
Up till now I have been mostly walking (16 months) alot of walking. And this summer I found I can run 3 blocks. Last summer I could only run from the telephone pole to the tree 120 steps) I am very happy with my progress.

    There are 2 main questions you must ask yourself: were you able to bring joy to others? . . . were you able to find joy yourself? If you can answer (yes) to these 2 questions, you can deem your life a success Andrew Schrage
