My Program:
I am using the Nutrition Tracker and Fitness Tracker regularly.

I'm doing various exercise DVDs (kickboxing, cardio dance). I enjoy power walking to some energetic tunes. I also enjoy the occasional aerobic dance class. I love swimming when I can find a pool. I also love kayaking, but I sadly only do it about once a year - I want to increase that.

I enjoy restorative yoga and want to fit it in more.

I practice almost daily self myofascial release, it's amazing!

Personal Information:
I'm single, 38, no children, no pets now (though I love them and had a dog for several years). I live in New York City.

I love to travel. I'd like to be more physically fit so I can be more active on vacations.

I love all things Disney. I like to scrapbook. I love almost all kinds of music.

Other Information:
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin

emoticon and emoticon for your encouragement and support of my journey! My quote for you today is by Robert Baden-Powell:

"Correcting bad habits cannot be done by forbidding or punishment."

So, here is to forming new habits with love and compassion! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
