I love ocean and pool swimming, free diving, scuba diving, kayaking and road biking.

When I eat healthy I enjoy my food all day

I believe nothing tastes or feels (being lazy) as good as being fit, slim and healthy feel.

All of our lifes major decisions are determined by the decisions we make in our everyday life. Learning to live life right day by day will put us on a path that will give us a life that will fulfill us forever.

My Goals:
I reached my goal at 44 lbs, and I am maintaining my weight well. Sense I have been riding with the bike club it's real easy to loose any weight I but on. Even though I'm 66 I'm always trying to ride and swim faster, to get stronger and be more flexable.

My Program:
I ride my bike with my bike club on Monday, Wednesday and Friday usually between 35 and 50 miles.
On Tuesday I have a body works and a Yoga class at LA Fitness.
Thur. and Sat I swim 2 miles
On Friday if I don't ride I help my wife with her bussiness.
Sat. I ride my bike, or swim. Sun. If I have time after church, I will ride or swim, depending on the weather and how I feel.

Personal Information:
I'm Dennis Bovee, I am now 67 and I go by aqua-man because I love the ocean. I mostly swim because it keeps me in shape, but I also dive and kayak in La Jolla Ca.
I swim all year with no wet suit, a mile is easy but 2 miles and I get really cold in the winter. My wife Susan and I live in Hemet now, 80 miles north so I don't get to the ocean as much as I would like and when I do the cold really hurts because up here I swim in an 85 degree pool, while the ocean in the winter is in the 50's, but it really develops self disipline.

Other Information:
I love success stories, but I understand it when people fail. The biggest success stories are those who keep trying and don't give up.
The reason I can do the things I do at my age is I never let myself stay out shape vary long. I have pretty much worked out most of my life and I don't plan on quiting.

Hi Dennis, Thanks for sending over the cute Christmas Tree to decorate my page... very festive! You asked about how I have my Spark time settings at East Coast time even though I live on the West Coast. I have always kept my Spark Day from 9pm to 9pm as it seems to work better for me. It is easy to do. Just go to your settings and set your "local" time 3 hours ahead of actual time. Have a sparkin holiday my friend. Warmest Holiday Wishes to you, Rhonda

Wasn't that a freaky but fabulous story? We are all still pinching ourselves in disbelief. The hard hat is something else, too!

Thank you for reading, Dennis, and for the like on my page. Thank you also for the goodie and the lovely note. Much appreciated.

Have a great week and I hope you and your wife enjoyed the trip!
HUGS

Hi! Thank you for the goodie! I've made a lot of progress on my project and I'm still going strong! The weather in New Jersey has been fabulous - cooler and less humid. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons and in some parts of the state the leaves have started to show color already. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone by! Be well and happy, dear friend... HUGS
