Interests: I have returned to yoga classes in addition to my home practice but my main activity is still with my walking with my dog "Sugar"! She's from a rescue and has flourished since I adopted her. She's worth her weight in gold because she makes me laugh! She's also a great motivator to get out for a one to three mile walk every day. She has been a real gift to me and my health.
October 2010, we adopted Xena as a kitten; she's livened up our household considerably and keeps tabs on my indoor "spark" walks! By 2011 walking has become a primary fitness activity for me; as I entered 2012 hooping had become a close second. 2013 has been a year of major yard changes and gardening activity!
Time with my family and friends and regular gym workouts are my other primary outside activities. Maintaining my home and yard and gardening keep me busy too. Yard and gardening spring through the fall sometimes takes the place of other fitness activities. Reading, sewing and crafts when I have time; keeping busy never a problem! Finding more time sometimes is.
I just keep growing and changing in healthy ways; life is good!

Bike buying has slowed, he's now tinkering LOL
Like a kid on Crimbo morning emoticon

He plans to make 2 really good ones for himself, and the rest as good as possible with parts available to sell at the local auction house.

Have a great weekend, emoticon

Joy, thanks for the comment on my blog. If nothing else, those fat clothes are going to be history by the time we move...in 5-7 years. I should be rock solid sure by then. You are right about the increased activity making all the difference. I've been watching my sister and how much more she moves around, and I've been trying to do the same. I'm getting a "skinny, active" mindset instead of a "fat, sedentary" mindset. It's a challenge to change a life-time of bad habits, though. One at a time...
