What say you, oh wise denizens of the ER Forum ?
That is quite a goal. Your 5 mi/day walking is already a good base. I hope you ramp up slowly and avoid overuse injuries.

I run a lot and walk but seem to have got to a steady state in weight. I wear the same size pants I've been wearing for decades. But I'm probably about 6 or 7 pounds heavier then 10 years ago. Part of it was eating a more balanced and nutritious breakfast.

I want to increase my number of drinks consumed by three each week. I'll just keep the same weight as long as I avoid any gains.
I want to increase my walking and strengthen my lower back.

We tried to make gnocchi and they were heavy belly bombers. We just buy them for our imitation Olive Garden Chicken Gnoochi soup. Which is particularly good for dinner on a cold January day.

Say you want a resolution, well ya know, I don't wanna change the world !

My goal is to actually retire in July (I'll be 62) - the TKR I've just gone through was a reminder none of us lives forever. I've been off work since 11/19. This morning is a perfect example it is 10 degrees out there - do I want to get into that cold car and sit there while the Windows defrost? Like I've done for the past 40 years? Not complaining mind you it is only 9.5 miles to the office. There was a time when I'd be on a nasty windy LIRR platform waiting for the train which is oh so worse... I guess it could be worse I could be in Chicago.

It will change my world.
