Here's To Health!

Hi, everyone. I am a blues singer from Boston, MA, and I'm grateful I get to do what I love...and be paid for it to boot! Music is my religion and the center of my world. It keeps me going on good days, bad days and in between. I can't imagine my life without it. I'm all about finding the right balance of good food, exercise, sleep, wellness and peace. I am here on SparkPeople so that I have a support system in place to help me focus on and achieve my goals, get encouragement, connect with ...

Fitness Minutes: 32,716

My Goals:
What I'm working toward now:

Getting into the "healthy" weight range for my height (I'm 5'3" so it's between 104-141 lbs).





My Program:
1. 300 or more mins. of exercise/week. Combo of strength training & cardio. Strength train 2-3 days/week; moderate-high intensity cardio at least 3 days/week.

2. Eat real food & choose the healthy route most of the time. Live the 80-20 rule: "Because while you should always aim to eat healthy most of the time, aiming for about 80% of the time gives you that wiggle room every sane person needs to still enjoy themselves."

3. Check in to SparkPeople each day & blog re: how things are going. This helps me stay accountable & get the encouragement I need.



Personal Information:
I'm a blues singer from Cambridge, MA. I am very lucky to be able to pursue my passion in life (music). I love to bike and I use my bike as my primary mode of transport. I enjoy good food/wine as well as cooking for friends and family. I believe in the law of attraction and that positivity attracts positive results. I consider myself a student in the school of life and enjoy learning something new each day.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yeah, the sand bag was a challenging workout. I'm lucky that my knees have held up over the years! I can do lunges and squats and run without a problem - even at 53! Hoping they hold up for the long haul. Take care and great job on your workouts and riding!
