Travel is Fatal to Prejudice, Bigotry and Narrow-mindedness Mark Twain

My husband and I love to travel. We have done quite a lot in Europe, China, Thailand and the Caribbean. We love to watch the travel shows on TV. You learn so much from traveling and it truly broadens your horizons. One thing I have learned is that people are people- all basically the same--all over the world!

Fitness Minutes: 52,092

My Goals:
I would like to take charge of my weight and get healthy. I hate to exercise, but at my age it becomes a necessity, not a choice unless I want to deal with the alternative.

My Program:
I am staying within my calorie goals and eating healthier- working on more veggies. My downfall is not exercising. I am working on this, making slow progress.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in northern Illinois. My husband and I have been married 45 years and have 2 sons. Unfortunately no grandchildren yet. Effie Annie is our "dogter".

I am a nurse on the brink of retirement. Just having a hard time making the big decision.

ACADIA is spectacular but I am biased of course. Any time you want to see Maine and there is a lot of it just let me know. Campobello Island and other Canadian Islands needs pass ports but we love the FDR Summer home. Very simple but very interesting too. Pat. Thanks for your support. (((HUGS)))) Pat

I tried today to download fit bit.
Apparently with windows 8 there are problems with fit bit and also the Spark tracker.
If I get a fit bit I cannot download it to my surface so I will have to do the guess work I really do not like to do.
I do yard work and I am very picky about how I work. If I use just time it looks like I am doing a great deal of work but there is no correlation between the minutes and the time.

Apparently they are working on it but all of the comments are very negative. I guess I must send it back and try a different approach to the fitness tracker. Thanks,
I had a Golden Lab retriever and my mother used to put her in the water heater closet on November the fifth-Guy Fawkes day.
The water heater made noises so my uncle put on a heavy wooden door. My mother discovered you can hear very little from inside. Wendy-Our Dig would go in and lie down till it was over. HUGS thanks for the information. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I hope your fourth went well. HUGS Pat in M aine.

I lost my blog.
I did not realize the spark tracker does not show steps, I thought it did.

Does the fit bit allow you to swim. is it waterproof?
I am trying to set it up, Our son will be here to help me a bit.

Thanks for the comments so often. Spark fiends are amazing I so look forward to reading my friends comments on my blog. It allows me to reach out to others since where we are up here above most of the Canadians, there are people to connect with.
I also have connected around the world too. HUGS EFFIE, I love seeing you on my B logs. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
