I'm from Texas and starting this fitness journey in October, 2011.
I will keep this verse in mind as I move ahead: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
I enjoy reading and games such as sudoku, scrabble, 42, and spider solitare. I'm a fan of the Baylor U. Lady Bears.
Glad to have you visit my page.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.
Eat healthy with at least 5 fruits or veggies per day, and less salt.
Exercise and strength train 3-4 times per week at fitness center.
Read the Bible through in 2012.
Read something positive each day.
Accomplished: (1/1/12 check of BMI was back in healthy range.YEA!)
To meet my goals I am focusing on healthy foods with plenty of raw veggies and fruit, plenty of water, and at least some form of exercise at least 5 days per week. I try each day to read a devotional with scripture and other positive books,etc.
I'm from central Texas, about 30 minutes from Waco, living on a small ranch with my husband of 52 years. I retired in 2009 after teaching mathematics at MCC, the community college in Waco.
1/12/12 stats:WTH 0.87

I have 2 grown daughters and their husbands and 6 grandchildren in my immediate family. The older 2 "grands" are married now.
We enjoy going to Colorado in the summer to enjoy the beauty of the mountains.
My verse for 2012:
"Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long" (Psalm 25:4-5).

Mary, we made it home this afternoon after doing an all-nighter from Anchorage to Austin. It was a wonderful trip, but no cruise. We had done that ealier. We rode the Wilderness Express dome train, the Park Connex bus, and several other vehicles to travel from Anchorage to Seward to Talkeetna and onto Denali--and we did see Mt. McKinley and lots of wildlife!! I will try to post some of the pics we took.

"...the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”
Thanks for your comment on my blog, "I'm Getting A Scale." Hope you have a great day!
