I have my medicare now, have had it for 5 months.

I am a retired teacher and live on Cape Cod with my husband. We have 5 children and 7 grandchildren who we love dearly! We enjoy walking on most days through the cottage area and down to the beach. In the summer, I have a garden and my husband has a small boat that he uses for fishing. The rest of the year we plan trips and travel. We just went to Alaska in June and have a Hawaii trip planned for October.

I am just fininshing the 2017 Fall 5% Challenge. I didn't quite make it to goal only have a little over a pound to go, so looking ahead my goal is to maintain. I love it! It has motiva.\ted me to get back to tracking and watching my calories. I have been back and forth to SparkPeople over many years. It is a terrific online support.

Continue walking and doing strength class.
Keep practicing gratitude.
My exercise committment for the 2017 Fall 5% Challenge is to continue to walk 4-5 miles each day and to continue to do stength training 3 times a week. I would also like to try more of the SP videos.

My healthy eating and nutrition plan for the 2017 Fall 5% Challenge I will continue to follow th SP tracker and stay within 1200-1500 calories a day. I will be sure to get the right amount of carbs, fats, protein, fiber and sodium.

My long term goal is to finish what I started back in 2009.

My Program:

I use the Spark People tracker to stay with calorie allowance and check that my nutrtion figures are where they should be.
I am going to strength class 3 days a week. I just got a fitbit and I'm trying to do 10,000+ steps each day.

Personal Information:
My husband and I are semi-retired, (we keep busy and work flexible part time jobs). We love the Patriots and traveling. We enjoy being on the beach, or hiking in the mountains. We have 5 children and 7 grandchildren. We feel blessed to have such a good life and such a wonderful family.
