Welcome to our place! Relax with us by the pool and watch the puppies romp. Come take a walk with me at sunrise and sunset--the sky here goes on forever! No wonder they decorate with pink and blue in Florida--that's the color of the vast cloud mounds in the sky, where the lightning plays at any time of day. You never know what might be going on around here, but good food, friends, characters, physical activity, and my thoughts, goals, and interests of the moment are going to be part of it.

My Goals:
When I first joined SparkPeople 10 years ago, I think, I'd seen my weight creeping up and decided that I needed to be more aware of what I was eating and how much I was exercising.

Well, it just happened again!

Having a weekly restaurant news column in the local paper is NOT a great method of self-control.

Note to self: It's never okay to just eat and drink whatever you damn please!

My Program:
Make sure to eat at least SOME breakfast every day, for a kick-start!

Walk a total of 5 miles, 10,000 steps, a day.

Eat only when hungry and stop when full. (This is NOT easy, by the way.)

Do daily pilates-type exercises to keep my hips and back limber.

Upper-body weight training every other day.

Personal Information:
70, with an emotional age of about 36


Went from 172 in February 2005 to a low of 111 several summers ago (much too low for me)

Now aiming to lose at least 10 pounds, mainly to fit into more of my clothes and have a flatter tummy.

This, too, isn't always easy, because of the abovementioned newspaper gig and Bill's great cooking.

Other Information:
My passions lately are writing and getting to be expert in the local restaurant scene. Retirement is proving far busier than full-time employment!

    emoticon Thanks for the visit! I write where the Christmas things are on the back of December on the next year's calendar. Have for years as things shift with life changes.

    LOL. We only had turkey roll the one occasion too. You can't toss it out but you have no desire to revisit it.

    I guess we will come to your house for Thanksgiving then with a turkey that big. LOL. Sounds like you are having guests. It is just Benny and me now and a turkey breast is all we will need if that. I don't want days and days and days of leftovers. It would be nice to just go out to eat and forget about it but Benny would be too cheap for that. He just wants to get rid of any part that is work for him. LOL. Thanksgiving is all about me working.

    I'm sure you love the writing but it does sounds like a lot of work. You would probably be bored without it. I would like to find balance on sparkpeople but I don't think I do. I'm trying to figure out how to have an easy, stress free holiday season. LOL.

    LOL. It sounds like more and more sexual harassers come out every day. No surprise to me. I only worked at one place where I didn't have to put up with it. I was still harassed occasionally but my boss would threaten them and it would stop. He had a zero tolerance policy.

    Lalalalala. Ears covered. No challenges. LOL. Your team challenge sounds better than most but right now I am not into any challenge other than trying to pretend that I'm human. I go through these phases where I am other-worldly. LOL. Not participating in human race kind of things. Living kind of like a cat.

    I have been wondering about you and what you are up to.
