Happy Life

I am a 70 year old grandmother that just wants to stay healthy. I live on 5 acres with my husband, dog and chickens. We are not the traveling kind and are living our dream.

My Goals:
Reached my 125 goal today, June 21, 2010, now I think I will try for 120.

Well, today, March 2, 2013, my goal again is to get to 125 and maintain the weight once I get there. I kind of let myself slip when I started having back pain. I need to get a grip. I only need to lose 13 pounds to be where I want to be.

Today is March 17, 2015 and my goal is to get to 130.

My Program:
Going to the gym a minimum of 3 days a week for strength and cardio, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday strength, stretching and recumbent bike at home. Hula Hooping 5 minutes per day at least once a day.



Personal Information:
I was born in Albany, California, moved to Vacaville, California when I was 5 and lived there most of my life. My husband and I retired to Oroville, California in 2002. My Grandmother, Father and I were all born and raised in California so that makes me 3rd genertion.

Other Information:
I love to garden. I have five different gardens on our 5 acres not counting my vegetable garden. I have a cactus garden, lantana garden, a verbena garden, iris garden and a garden with evergreen schrubs that bloom. I also have a 24" border around my house with different plants. I put the gardens where there were big rocks so my husbund would not mow over the rocks while we were developing our property. Now the gardens are part of our landscaping.

Turkish Get Up is very hard to describe but basically you hold a Kettlebell or Dumbbell over your head while you get up from lying on the floor, then lay back down with the Weight staying above your head at all times. You can Google a Demo.

Hi Gretchen,
I'm sorry but I don't remember her first name. We weren't friends and I moved away from that neighbourhood at age 12. I do have a friend from that time and next time we speak I'll ask her. She remembers everybody (my head swims with all the names!).
