My name is Carole; I am 66 years old and retired from the music ministry at my church. My hobbies are playing the piano and reading - Christian fiction and non-fiction, and also traditional or cozy mysteries. I've been happily married for 40 years, and have two grown children who are still a big part of my life.

Fitness Minutes: 14,269

My Goals:
My goals are simply to eat healthy, drink lots of water, and exercise - instead of focusing on weight loss. The weight loss will come.

My Program:
Eating:
(1) Track food on the nutrition counter.
(2) Increase water, fiber, fruits & veggies.
(3) Cook frequently from JoAnna Lund's cookbooks. Her recipes are healthy, easy to prepare, and delicious!

Fitness:
(1) Exercise 4-5 days each week, using elliptical trainer and recumbent bike in our basement.
(2) Use Walk away the Pounds DVDs. Leslie Sansone and I are becoming very good friends.

Spiritual:
Without God in the equation, none of this will happen.

Hi Carole. It was great to see your comment on my blog. It's been a while since we have "talked". I will post before and after pictures for sure. In the meantime I'm busy de-cluttering, cleaning and re-decorating our Guest room. Hope to finish it tomorrow. Did you see wht I did to my music room? Found curtains with song birds and music on them. They were sheer so I lined them with white tiers and no one can see in at night. Got a new quilt for the futon and used it as a slip cover. I'm doing the same with the futon in the guest room but with blue, yellow, light green and brown country pattern. As with our bedroom, I used blue valances. Anyway, that's my Friday project. I de-cluttered last night. emoticon
