My Goals:
I intend to maintain a healthy weight, to thrive doing exercise I love, and to have fun.

My Program:
I want to live a healthy life "full out." I am healthy, and consider it my job to protect that gift!

Personal Information:
I was born in the Pacific Northwest, but live in Virginia (Metro DC) now. I always have a foot in each place--I love them both. I love the water and being outdoors and so I try to be active there when I can. The gym is a good fall back though!

Other Information:
I am married, mother to a son, stepmom to a daughter and two sons. Grandmother to 5. Being active with my family is important--we are a movin' bunch.

Thank you for dropping by my page. I hear there is wild weather in the States. We are waiting for summer proper, it is rather wet at the moment, which is good for the garden. I think we might have some courgettes in a few days.

Thank you for your kind words about my cat. Yes, we miss her, but have lots of happy memories of her companionship.
Congratulations on nearly achieving your thanksgiving goal.

Thanks for the bloglove on my What's Your Passion post. I'm glad you understand how being healthy is FUN not suffering. LOL people are so contrary.

I'm reminded of my Dad who looked at every change he had to make as his body aged as a door clanging shut - a piece of himself cut off forever. He had so many things, so much he could have added to his life that he refused to do, till in the end, death was the only thing he wanted. As I watched him, I vowed that I would embrace each change that aging brought to my life as the gift it was - not the punishment it need not have been.

Hey there! Thanks for the bloglove. I will be wearing those boots soon. LOL. Next week in fact. Those Brains of mine have a limited amount of patience.

See you soon?
