I want to get past time and financial constraints that have de-motivated serious progress to improve my health.

4/17/13 UPDATE: I'm still working on this goal, but I have made progress and feel less swamped about actually doing what I know to do. I have definitely found motivation to keep at the project. I am especially thankful to have improved my fitness level, and I am looking forward to getting stronger. I am very thankful for the many people willing to share their experiences in moving towards a healthy lifestyle.

AND NOW IT'S LATE IN 2016: I've had an interesting year trying hard to "catch up" on many of life's loose ends. Many of those loose ends are still fraying, but now it's time to focus on re-capturing time for activity and "spark work."

Member Since: 4/21/2013

Fitness Minutes: 12,103

My Goals:
I'd like to make changes that last.

I need to find workable foods that fit in with my family's food allergy needs.

My Program:
Right now I am working on a food repertoire and carving out time to pursue more physical activity.

4/17/14 - I am working on strength training, specifically The PACE workouts promoted by Al Sears, MD. I've also enjoyed using exercise balls along with my son. I would like to learn "chi running" so I can run without joint issues.

Personal Information:
I am from the hills of western PA where deer are abundant but jobs not so abundant. I have a child attending on-line college and a child on the cusp of high school; we have educated them both at home so far. I teach music part time and do a plethora of other necessary things full time, including supervising my intellectually disabled brother. My husband and I are completing our 23rd years of marriage.

Other Information:
We deal with multiple food allergies. As a result, my children are almost self-sufficient cooks now.

I enjoy reading - especially biographies, art, music, gardening, and too many other things to list. Best of all I like connecting with friends and family.

    Have A Wonderful Weekend.!!!

    My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is

    “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”

    A Quote from -- Erma Bombeck

    You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

    Patriotism is great but WATCH THOES CALORIES !! emoticon

    I'm better than I used to be. Better than I was yesterday. But hopefully not as good as I will be tomorrow.
