Ahoy!

My husband and I have swashed our buckles a few times at the Portland Pirate Festival, and my pirate name is Iron Bess.

A few years ago on the day before my birthday, I received a scary medical diagnosis. I didn't feel like an Iron Bess then. I've realized with time, however, that I'm not defined by a medical condition, that I'm still a person with hopes, joys, dreams, abilities, good friends and family.

Mini weight loss goals:
4/20/2016: First 10 lbs gone!

My Goals:
To weigh less each month until I reach my goal.

May 2015: I've divided the total desired weight loss into 10-lb. mini-goals. Seems less daunting and more achievable that way.




My Program:
*Exercise bike or real bike 1 mile or more at least three days a week plus occasional other exercise such as Wii, yoga, walk, dance for variety.
*Core strength exercises 2-3 times a week

*Eat nourishing whole food, low fat, low or no refined carbs

Personal Information:
We live in a magical Mountain West location of the US.

Other Information:
I enjoy skywatching, bicycling, lake kayaking, organic gardening, travel, crochet, archaeology, nature, movies, music (esp. world music, jazz). I'm a beginner at playing Native American flute.

I'm definitely planning to watch the transit with my astronomy club kids. And doing another public talk locally to invite people to check it out. But unlike the Venus transit, where I had tickets to fly to Idaho in case the weather was bad here, I don't have a backup plan if it's cloudy.

Thank you for the encouragement and SparkGoodie! AND for commenting on my granddaughter's photo. It was such a happy surprise--and I needed something happy.
