Everyday small choices lead to everyday small victories!

At 48.5, I'm determined to get my health back. I've struggled with injuries and physical limitations, but seeing age 50 on the not-so-distant horizon only shores up my resolve!

I have 2 grown kids (yep, I'm an empty nester) and a perfect grandson who was born 12/27/2013! I'm a bridge inspector and office administrator. I'm a cradle Catholic and a knitter. I have been in a relationship with my very significant other for a dozen years.

Member Since: 7/8/2010

SparkPoints: 31,634

Fitness Minutes: 23,239

My Goals:
Look better in a swimsuit for 2016 vacation to Panama

Improve upper body strength

Slim down, especially in belly, hips and thighs


My Program:
I'm eating healthier, including snacks. I'm drinking MUCH more water every day, all day long.

My other big change is to GET MOVING!!

My program is more life changes than short-term goal oriented.

Personal Information:
I'm from a very small Texas town. I've lived in the big city - and I love this way of life. It has its disadvantages, but they are FAR outweighed by its advantages.

I have a daughter in college, studying biology (forensic medicine), and a son who's a musician in Lubbock, Tx.

Other Information:
I'm a voracious reader. I always have one book in progress on my Kindle or in paper form, AND one in progress in audio form. I listen to books as I drive and as I get ready for work in the morning.
I'm a somewhat new knitter. I like to make scarves because they're mindless and satisfying, but I rarely wear them myself.

Thanks for adding me as a friend and I'll do the same for you. We reached a high of 11 today and suppose to be -9 tonight. We went out to Walmart and the wind isn't blowing and the sun is out so it really didn't feel to bad as long as you weren't out for a long time. Hope you get to feeling better.
