The sea, the tree and one can almost feel the breeze and smell the salt air.

Shared Fitness Tracker
I am a 50 year old Texan who has put on weight in the past few years. I am much heavier than my college weight of 120, which was too little for my 5 foot 7 inch frame. I must trim my weight because after two thyroidectomies, I have limited options to rev up my metabolism. My goal is to get healthier, by losing 15 pounds, building muscle through weight training, and increasing my endurance through walking.
I want to manage my arthritis, get a healthier body, and gain confidence.
In order to meat my goals, I am walking every day, lifting weights, and swimming. I am also working on keeping a food diary and relearning how to eat, for my health. Fortunately, my husband is also along for the journey.
My favorite things are my family, especially my 3 grandchildren, my dogs, gardens, and Texas A&M.

Thank you for commenting on my blog (Have you ever?) I stole it from a Spark friend and thought it would be fun to fill out. After completion though I have to admit I hadn't done much on that list. Kind of depressing. LOL!

Thanks for the goodie shoes! I'm actually in need of a new pair before the really nice weather arrives for walking & hiking.
I see on your page you say you're a Texan - I was born in Gainesville, TX, but have lived in California most of my life. Anytime I visit, I come back here with a Texan twang to my speech.
Have a wonderful day!
