Hi! I'm Angie, and I'm 51 years old. I'm from London, England, but now reside in Ohio. I'm a wife, mother of five, and grandmother of one gorgeous baby girl! I have been a Spark member since 2006, and this site has changed my life! I am so much more conscious of my eating habits now, and regular strength training & cardio is keeping my body strong and fit!
Confession: I let my good habits slide and I'm now starting afresh. My weight loss ticker has been reset to the date of my recommitment: 1/4/2012.
I am focusing on developing lean muscle and bringing my body fat percentage down. On a day-to-day basis, I try to keep my protein, calcium, & vitamin D intake up, and my sodium intake down.)
My big hobby is metal detecting, and I take my hobby very seriously! I am fascinated with anything old, and my aim when 'dirt fishing' is to find historical artifacts, especially old coins. I will dig ANYWHERE (with permission!) but my main relic hunting sites are an old farm (at least 150 years old) and a state lake and its grounds.
I am also an avid photographer, with a keen interest in nature and astrophotography. You can view my Flickr Photostream here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/truebritgal/
I also enjoy making scented soy wax candles, and there are always candles burning inside our home! They are so welcoming, with their cozy, warm glow, and they really do make a house a home!
To become physically fit, and to lose weight in order to feel comfortable in my clothes, and comfortable with myself!
To make smart, healthy eating choices. When I''m lean and healthy, I feel more confident and outgoing, and my energy is boundless!
I track my workout routine with my Polar F11 heart rate monitor. I do about 45 minutes of cardio at least four times a week, and strength train at home at least three times a week, using weights, stability ball, and resistance band. I also enjoy working out to exercise DVDs, especially Leslie Sansone's walk-at-home series, and Turbo Jam! The Firm workouts are also favorites.
My name is Angie, and I'm 51 years old. I was born and raised in England, but have lived in Ohio for many years. I'm a Christian, and homeschool our children. I'm teaching three of our children at two grade levels. My husband is so loving, patient and supportive, and I thank the Lord for him constantly!
I let things slide in 2011, and as of December 30, I'm about 19 lb heavier! This is the year I hope to drop to my goal weight. I have 30 lb to lose, and muscle to gain!
| current weight: 133.0
Hey there! Glad to see you're still here! Congrats on the 17lb weightloss :) I had gained some back but I'm getting back on track. I Forgot how hard it was getting started exercising again lol sooo sore all the time!
