My Goals:
My Goals when I started were to lose some weight, get heahlty and get my strength back up to par in order to compete in the Scottish Heavy Events. I have found however, that I ended up losing more weight than I initially intended, and now fear I'm too light to compete. We'll see in a few months how I feel. I don't want to give up the body composition I've attainted.

My Program:
My program initially consisted of a strict reduced cclorie diet, coupled with a walking program of at least 60 minutes per day and weights three times a week. I so enjoyed my workouts, I gradually increased my program to include 30-40 minutes of runninbg per day, along with a 30-40 minute walk (lisitening to books on tape) each day, circuit training with weights twice per week and with resistance bands 3 times per week. Pushups and Crunches before bed each night. Still tracking food and workouts.

Personal Information:
I'm from northern CA, love to hike, play golf and watch sports. I Enjoy family events and togetherness. I'm a former track and field atlhete and a retired law enforcement officer.

Other Information:
I love to read (Davinci Code Genre), run in the rain, and root for the Giants, Warriors, and 49'ers.

Thank you for the advice and encouragement on my blog! You're right - this is my new lifestyle and it should stick with me on vacation. :)

Thank you for your comment on my blog and I will definitely get it checked out if it persists. I never have a problem sleeping usually. It may just be the coming cruise and being anxious and excited about it :) Have a great day!
