It's time to participate here again.

SP is a great resource.

Here I am, back at SP again.

My goals ... managing the weight because of my joints and acid reflux. Exercising for strength, flexibility, balance, cardio. Being consistent with healthy living. Being accountable to myself for my habits by getting on the scale.

I tend to use food when I am upset / depressed / anxious etc. Emotional eating is an issue. If I don't watch myself carefully, I backslide quickly.

Fitness Minutes: 21,474

My Goals:
My goals relate to healthier living in general. This involves body, mind, and spirit.

My struggle has been to remain consistent. It seems that I set goals and make a plan, only to get sidetracked by my own emotions.



My Program:
Give an overview of what you are doing to meet your goals.

For right now -

- Cardio minimum 1 mile x 6 days / week
- Weights / stretching minimum 20 minutes 6 days / week
- Drink my water
- Take my vitamins
- Journal food / exercise

Personal Information:
My name is Marie and I live with my husband in a town of about 12,000 in Alberta, Canada. (No children because of fertility problems - endometriosis). I'm 59 years old.


I worked as a clerk in a bank for 25 years and now work as a part time bookkeeper.

My nature is to be introverted. (If you are aware of personality typing - MBTI INFJ / enneagram 4w5.)

So, I need a lot of alone time to keep my batteries charged. On the other hand, I really enjoy having one-on-one conversations with people.



Other Information:
Hobbies & Interests

So many interests and hobbies and not enough time.

- researching and organizing our family history, using photo editing software, scrapbooking, making jewellery, playing piano, drawing, reading, learning, cooking, and so on.

My favourite ways to keep active are walking, exercising in the pool, using weights and trying easy yoga poses.

My dear husband is retired, and he and I have the opportunity to spend time together, which is something I'm very grateful for.

Thanks for your positive input on my recent blog.

On the discussion pages, there is usually a category about "non scale victories."

Have a blessed day.

I know Marie. People often surprise me because I would never do what they do sometimes! It's often a shock! :)

Thank you for the comment on my most recent blog! I love hearing what other people have in their home gyms, so thank you for sharing.

You have cardio equipment! I'm jealous! I'm waiting for a great deal on a gym-quality elliptical. I've learned the hard way that quality REALLY matters when it comes to cardio equipment.
