I'm 57, married to a fun loving, caring man, mom to 5 happy(grown-up)kids, grandmother to 3 adorable boys, and a little grand-daughter. I use to be a nurse years ago, I loved working orthopedics and also as an assistant to a gastroenterologist. This past year I finally went through training to get my certifications to be a group fitness instructor, plus additional training as a Spin instructor. I hope to add a few more trainings to my resume soon - aqua fitness instructor, etc. I am currently ...
I'm 57, married to a fun loving, caring man, mom to 5 happy(grown-up)kids, grandmother to 3 adorable boys, and a little grand-daughter. I use to be a nurse years ago, I loved working orthopedics and also as an assistant to a gastroenterologist. This past year I finally went through training to get my certifications to be a group fitness instructor, plus additional training as a Spin instructor. I hope to add a few more trainings to my resume soon - aqua fitness instructor, etc. I am currently teaching Spin and Abs & Arms classes & totally enjoying it!
Four years ago I couldn't have imagined myself being physically fit enough to be taking these classes let alone teaching them. Some good physicians, a supportive & encouraging family and SparkPeople helped me to achieve my goal of overall good health physically and mentally!

My Goals:
For 2011:
*Lose those last few pounds & keep them off
*Keep living this healthy livestyle
*Start some serious road cycling in our beautiful surroundings
*Graduate to all-day hikes
*Start back to school part-time
*Volunteer in our community on a regular basis

*Start guitar lessons

My Program:
Tracking everything! Food, nutrients, exercise, etc.
Exercising for 60-120 minutes/day, 5 days/week. Enjoy being active by looking for ways to burn calories - hiking, biking, walking, etc.

Personal Information:
I was born & raised in Ohio, and have lived in Utah, California, Texas, New Hampshire, England, Venezuela, Switzerland, and now in Colorado - woohoo!

Other Information:
"If you say you can't - you won't. If you say you can - you will!"

Whenever I hear of a middle age man or woman struggling with losing weight, I encourage them to look at 3 things:
1.) Overall health conditions which might be playing a part, i.e.: hormones, thyroid, stress, etc.
2.)Set nutrition goals AND then track your food intake!
3.)Set exercise or physical activity goals, AND track these also

Maryjohannah ~ I may not log in often but for 3 years I have worked out 6 days/week for an average of 1 1/2 hours/workout. Then my husband and I do 6-8 hour hikes for like 3-5 consecutive days, do bike road trips, etc. I stay very active and wear a heart rate monitor so when I do log in I can go back on SP and log my fitness minutes. I love my heart rate monitor!!
