Happy Fitness Chick!

"The name we give to something, shapes our attitude to it." ~ Katherine Patterson

Thus -- Happy Fitness Chick!

Well, it's the DIRECTION I want to be aiming for anyway! Sedentary is always calling my name, so I need to do all I can to fight it, fight it, fight it...

Hi! I'm Susy!

Wow! One of my 20 year dreams recently came true: Once DH retired and we sold our house (Nov 2011), we became RVing vagabonds 3/28/12.

(Sure didn't plan on the fuel prices of today though. Yikes)

Okay, a little about me: I love health! I enjoy learning. (The harder part is the implementation part. LOL)

I'm an ACE-certified personal trainer since December 2010. And also an ACE-certified Health Coach as of May 2013! Loving it!

I've worked for various gyms since 2000. Mostly it's been Curves Fitness for Women, but I also worked at Snap Fitness for a time, as well as a privately owned fitness center. I definitely MISS not working for a gym!!!

One thing is a bit ironic though: As I'm aging, I'm developing some severe ankle issues and can't do all that I used to do. Yowza! But... since I can't fight it, I'm just trying to figure out what I CAN do. (But I sure miss old-fashioned cardio!)

Below are quotes that I've run across and liked. If you like any of them, copy and paste! We need all the motivating support we can find!

THIS I BELIEVE:

**#1 (VITAL):
Get control of your thoughts to get where you need to go.

**Eat as nutritiously as you can.
**Eat more LIVING food than dead food. (Harvey Diamond)

**A body at rest is dying.
**Be a body-in-ACTION.

**6/24/11---To me, the more you can immerse yourself in the fitness and health lifestyle---including surrounding yourself with like-minded people---the more likely you'll be successful. That's my intention!
05/21/13 --- I still feel the same way!

I think the idea is great!! i hadn't thought of it and may use it when the time comes although it will be a much bigger number that yours :-)D. What about having a BD every 60 days after the 60th begins! Wouldn't that be fun to celebrate every couple of months? Thank you so much for the Goodie and the comment! I enjoy having the conversations that come up Are you back home yet? It not, safe travels and enjoy!! Hugs, Eileen

Susy - thanks for commenting on my Branson Blog. I hope you weren't offended that I used your fragmented memories as you said it so well. Until we meet again, I have wonderful memories of our time together. I so enjoyed getting to know you. BTW, I have my door decorations up and love them! Thanks again!

Hi Susy - I'm not sure on the time of Sunday's pot luck but I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't early enough in case some one wants to go to a show. I think there will be lots of visiting time at the campground as they have a lot of free activities and all the shows and stuff can get pretty expensive. I hope it all works out so you can watch your game on Sunday! Looking forward to finally meeting you! The men all really bonded last year so I think Steve will enjoy the time as well.
