Happy Life

I am a 71 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.

I've been avoiding the soup due to the high sodium in it. I had some vegetable soup last night from Tong Fong Lows and it was really good and didn't taste like it had that much sodium in it. I was surprised. I had hubby pick up a lemon chicken dinner for himself and had him get me a soup with the most veggies in it. We will have to get together for lunch when you shop again. Maybe we can go to Tong Fong Lows and get some of that soup.

And Charlie woofs and wags right back!!

I agree with you: that weed whacking is hugely hard work and you are keeping both yourself AND your garden trim and tidy!!

We've had horrendous rain storms here, no drought -- but lots of sunshine too. Actually quite a glorious summer all round!!

Thanks for explaining the car smog thing. No, we don't have to do that in Texas. We have more dust than smog, lol.
