Getting healthier every day

I'm on my way to becoming the person I was meant to be: happy, healthy & fit! Little late in life; but, better late than never! Looking forward to building a tiny house & living in a tiny home community somewhere in the U.S.

My Program:
Walk, bike, strength training. Would love to get back to yoga, Pilates & spinning. Recently discovered jessicasmithtv.com & regularly follow her free exercise videos. Usually eat 3 meals & 2-3 snacks a day. Currently participating in 5% challenge.

Personal Information:
Currently live in Crystal Lake, IL with two remaining cats; we lost Tommy 2/8/14. Work p-t & volunteer at local library.
Until 2002 was vegetarian for 15 years; during & since Alaskan cruise I've added occasional fish. Beautiful daughter now currently in Telluride, CO & my loving son in Portland, OR.

Other Information:
Reading is my favorite pastime: novels, murder mysteries, biographies, The Spark....almost anything.
I'm working p-t, volunteering at library, hanging out with other friends (sounds like a teenager) doing fun activities: dinner/movie, concerts, Bingo, etc; would love to get back to playing ping pong.
I LOVE to cook--mostly vegetarian meals; & earned my Baker's Asst. Certificate in 2010, as I've ALWAYS loved to bake as well.

Cheerfulness is the best promoter of health and is as friendly to the mind as to the body.

You are so close to your goal weight ~ great job! In reading your profile information, I noticed that we have a few things in common.

DH & I live most of the year in AZ but we have our original house in OR and that's where we go May through September. I also like to read a lot & the only genre I will not read at all is romance.

Congratulations on earning your Baker's Asst. Certificate ~ sounds like a lot of fun.

It's interesting to me that several people are doing both BLC & the 5% Challenges. You & I are Determined Daisies and thus, teammates *but* we're in "competition" with each other in the BLC. By the way, regardless of team composition, I wish you success in this & every endeavor.
