My Goals:
I want energy.
I would like to be healthy.
I want to stop wasting my life by sitting on a couch after work. I want to live my life to the fullest!

My Program:
I am eating between 1200 to 1500 calories per day.

I am increasing my activity by starting at 15 minutes per day. I know that sounds like so little, but I've not done anything for years so that 15 minutes is challenging to me.

I live in Ohio. I am a 52 year old married mother of 5 daughters. I still have two girls at home ages 13 & 15. I work a full time job. I have 6 grandchildren.

Other Information:
I like photography, crafts, scrapbooking and flower gardening. I enjoy helping my community by volunteering when I can. This is an important value I teach my children.

I sure will keep making music and adding humor to our world! Had my first jam session with my new electric bass a week ago Friday. I was sooo high! What a blast! Going to jam again this coming Friday. So much fun to start something new at 73! Thanks for the goodie!
Peace, Gayle
