All Knitting all the time!

I live in Iowa; I knit, spin, weave, sew. If it has fiber I am all over it. Except for quilting and baskets; not enough time in the day.

SparkPeople was off my radar for a long, long time. But after finding a new way to go I am using it again. In April 2012 I reached my first goal of losing 60 pounds and have been at maintenance ever since. Which is not quite true. If you talked with my coach I was maintaining. But I gained weight back. Right now I am not 160 but 200. It was four years returning but it returned and now I am working to take it back down without the program I used in 2011-12.

According to BMI and current weight charts (which are totally inaccurate and illogical) I was still counted as obese at 161. But right now I do not feel as good as I could. Sooooo, on the trail to lose what I have gained and perhaps go a bit lower to see how that feels.

Fitness Minutes: 30,517

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to limber up and gain more stamina. The fact that pounds drop off is an added benefit.


My Program:
I have added more walking; taking the stairs going up. It is bumpy going with being consistent with weights.



Personal Information:
Grace
Iowa City, Iowa
Enforced retirment in February 2017 which makes me very happy for a number of reasons: 1-more time with DB; 2-able to walk more and not be tied to an office; 3-fibre related things, creating, conferences, etc.; and 4-be outside.


Other Information:
"Make it work" has become a talisman for me. Many times I want to walk away but Tim G's voice in my head will not let me and so I go back into the fray to try and make it work.

    emoticon for your comment on my blog post!

    Right now I usually cook a 3-4 times a week and eat the same thing for several days, but I don't freeze in anything, because I eat it within a few days, which in turn means I've never really thought about what is and isn't freezer friendly.

    Thanks for reading my 'What to Wear After 50'--I'm steadily working on a few of those myself, lol. Take care and hope your weekend is grand! P.S. I see where you're from Iowa--my husband was born and raised in Roland, most of the family still live in/around Story City. ;-)

    thank you for your kind words on yesterday's blogpost. You are right, too. I will NEVER ever choose to go that far down again. I don't need to know how deep it is.

    hugs
