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.

On the Big Bang they had a cute little joke. What is Star War’s Fav day of the year? Hint: it’s not May the second or May the third. Can you guess? It’s May The Fourth. Get it? May the Fourth be with You. I cracked up.

Hope you have a great time with the rest of our Spring Challenge.

Linda

“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time.
Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.
Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
-Steve Maraboli
