Fitness Minutes: 34,695

My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy, which includes stronger and slimmer than I am today. I want to be able to play with my children and in the future, my grand children.

My Program:
I plan to track everything that passes through my lips as well as all of my exercise. It is challenging. Right now my goal is 20 minutes of exercise 6-7 days a week, eating 1400-1600 calories a day.

Personal Information:
I was happily married with 2 dogs and between us, 5 children. November 27, 2013 my life changed drastically. My husband died unexpectedly. Now I have to learn how to live all over again.

Other Information:
My favorite exercises are Pilates, Elliptical, Stationary Bike, Weight Lifting and especially swimming and exercises in the pool. I would have loved to take long walks with my husband and dogs, but arthritis in both knees stopped me. Now I have replaced both knees and no longer have a husband to walk with.
