Fitness Minutes: 3,172

My Goals:
Weight loss goal: 75 lbs

Improve overall health through weight loss and proper nutrition.

Reduce back and neck pain through exercise, weight loss and strength.

My Program:
I do not like the word diet. So I try not to use it.

My program involves eating less processed foods, less fast food, less fried/greasy foods.

Eating more fruits and vegetables.

Cooking low fat, low calorie foods.

Exercising 5-7 days per week. Gradually increasing the overall time to 60 minutes. Splitting that time between weight training and cardio.

Personal Information:
I'm in South Orange County CA. I'm originally from Pennsylvania.

I'm of Welsh and English decent.

I'm married to a great man for 5 years (in 2014). We ride a Harley and love to go to Laughlin and Vegas. We love riding and exploring California too.

We have no kids and do not plan on them. Our pets are our kids. We have 1 cat, 2 Russian tortoises and 1 corn snake and 2 ball pythons.

I am in healthcare and work as an auditor/coder. I'm a manager with a great company! I love what I do and have been doing this now for 27 years.

I am currently studying to obtain two additional credentials, which will give me 4 total.

I love to read and have a Nook HD+ with an extensive library of all types of books. My favorite are historical romance. I also love to read the Merck manual and learn more about human diseases.

I love nearly all types of music from Classic rock, Alternative to Opera and just about everything in between.

Other Information:
I love to read on my Nook HD. I'm studying for another credential for work as a healthcare auditor. I love to cook. I love all types of music and have a slightly eccentric or wacky sense of humor and personality.

Thank you for the comment on my blog on rhubarb. I just purchased another bunch to juice. Yes, I find the information so amazing. It motivates me to eat something I used to dislike. emoticon

THANK YOU so much for your healing thoughts and kindess on behalf of my car accident. Because of my injuries, I'm only able to sit short periods of time while visiting the SP website. I'm grateful to you for your wonderful support. Have a beautiful and blessed Monday!
