My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in September 2017:
1. Lose 18 lbs.
2. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

17 in 2017
1. Try kettlebells.
2. Read 6 books related to health.
3. Try a paczki. 2/24/17 I had never tried one because of the powdered sugar but they are so iconic. I had a lemon filled paczki and it was delicious though I'm still not fond of the powdered sugar. Good thing they're only available for a few days each year.
4. Pie at Norske Nook.
5. Hot stone massage.
6. Play cards at the Senior Center.
7. Try an ABC Sudoku. 1/30/17 I see they also make a color Sudoku so I'll have to give that a try too. 1/30/17 Decided to try the color one right away so I could put off dusting. It was fun but I wasn't fond of the app so I think I'll just give that one up. Sudoku is addicting enough for me. I don't really need a bunch of different types.
8. Make garden art.
9. Make a button bracelet.
10. Acquaint myself with our brand new library. It opened in November 2016 and I haven't made the time to visit it yet. Got my visit in on 1/24/17. I need to participate in their adult programming more. So many interesting things going on there.
11. Try a mug cake.
12. Make 17 new recipes. January: I tried slow cooker recipes for pea soup and broccoli cheese soup which I currently make on the stove but didn't prefer either.
13. Participate in the library's Winter Reading Program. 2/27/17 I turned my reading list in with one day left in the program. I didn't get any bingos but I did read or listen to 6 books between January 22 and February 28. I got six tickets to put in the prize boxes and I even won a prize. I won a gift certificate to use at the mall.
14. Participate in the library's Book Club. 3/27/17
15. Complete Master Gardener Level 2 Training.

Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've owned dogs but in November 2013 we decided to give a kitty a chance. Tony is quite an experience.


Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

    I'm Lauren and I live in San Antonio, TX. My favorite summer activities involve staying out of the harsh Texas heat. I spent a summer in Wisconsin years ago and loved it! I swam a lot and didn't get quite as crispy as I do here. My one goal for this challenge is to complete my half-ironman triathlon.

    Sounds as though you could use some sunshine there, too. We did get some this morning, but this afternoon the clouds rolled back in and the rain started up again. We're already having the 4th wettest spring on record, and the month isn't even over yet. Oh well, I guess we'll all get out of this pattern at some point.

    Hi, I'm Megan, and I live in Calgary, Alberta, in Canada. I'm having a difficult time losing weight in middle age, but I'm determined to get it off while building my health and strength! I have 30 pounds to go!

    I'm a teacher, married 30 years, and have a teenaged son and a crested gecko.

    My favourite mode of exercise is walking and hiking, but both are on hold due to a foot injury, so I'm trying to stay motivated to get on the exercise bike every day. I love weight training, and that is going very well.

    I look forward to continuing the fun and friendship with longtime Dragons, and getting to know our new Dragons! Welcome to the team!

    Megan

    The 1st book group read The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper, which I really liked, and recommend! The second book group read The Good Daughter, which I did not read (just never got around to it). For June, the 1st book group is reading The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, and the 2nd book group is reading The Secret Keeper, which I've read already, but had forgotten that I had emoticon so I will make it my mission to find a couple of new books to recommend to the group next time! What are you reading?
