Good intentions just don't cut it when it comes to losing weight. There has to be some action with those intentions. Every day is a new day to work on those intentions with actions.

Member Since: 5/4/2006

Fitness Minutes: 70,665

My Goals:
My goals are to stay in my calorie range each day.

For the winter months, my goal will be to do 30-minutes cardio or strength daily, weights on M, W, F, and toning work T, TH, S. I will change this as the weather warms up outside.

My Program:
My calorie range is 1200-1550. I'm working on adding more veggies to the menu, fruits aren't hard to add.

Personal Information:
I'm a 16-year widow from North Dakota. I have two daughters, ages 40 and 28, and one 14-year-old grandson. I also have a 1-1/2-year old granddaughter with a 4-month-old sister! I was an at-home medical transcriptionist for 21+ years and have been retired for the past 4 years. Some favorite crafts have been quilting and wood craft painting, which were replaced a few years with dancing. Dancing has now retired and I am back to quilting and loving it and also learning machine embroidery. I'm really enjoying life these days and am so thankful for the good health I have and am now trying to make it better by lightening the load! I have a significant other who is also retired and we've been doing a lot of traveling the last couple of years.

Other Information:
I have a hard time sticking with things long-term including things that make me feel better, i.e., exercise and losing weight. So I am going to take the approach of making it through this one single day, each day, to reach my goals. And with God's help, and all you wonderful Sparkers, I will be successful!!
