the new me

Hi, I turned 66 y/o last October and it is time to get serious again about improving my body picture, stamina and overall health. I have been married for 46 years to a good man. We have 2 grown sons and a 24 y/o granddaughter and 2 beautiful great granddaughters. I retired from nursing a year ago Dec. Life is too short to work forever and I would like to do something other than nursing at this point in my life. My 2 favorite things to do are read and ride our Goldwing Trike.

SparkPoints: 19,393

Fitness Minutes: 29,379

My Goals:
I want to become more focused on managing my nutrition and exercise so I can be a healthy, energetic "poster child" for growing older.

My Program:
I will try to conquer the portion control of eating, exercise daily and make time for me at least once a week. This will include strength training, walking, sparking (which is sometimes my only ME time) and not beating myself up when I falter

Personal Information:
I have lived most of my life in the small community of Woodland, PA about 35 miles west of State College. Except for 3 years of nursing school in New Kensington, PA. I have been married to the same man for almost 46 years; we have 2 great sons, a d-i-l, 1 granddaughter, and 2 great granddaughters. There are also 5 grand-dogs (Springer Spaniels). Life is great if I allow it to be!

Other Information:
My favorite things to do are read, ride our motorcycle and visit our kids.

When I was in nursing school, our motto was "never look down on anyone, only God sits up that high" I still like it!

Although I enjoy most kinds of music, I am more of a country fan (especially older music)

emoticon Here's a quote for you about Mondays by an unknown source:

Hello, Monday. May I ask you a question? Why are you always back so quickly? Don’t you have a hobby?"

May your Monday pass quickly! Hugs

Don't be discouraged by a 1 pound gain.... That can be water or swollen muscle from exercise or new muscle or even the contents of your bladder/ bowel. The trends are more important than the individual numbers. So let's ace this Awesome A week!!!!
