I defy traditional labels. Socially liberal, morally conservative, can't figure out how people can be cruel to one another. I love to get to know people who are not just like me. I'm a natural optimist, but sometimes get dragged down by a gene pool that tends toward depression. I wish the sun would shine all the time. I love OTHER PEOPLE'S dogs, but would say I'm a cat person. Big into sports, particularly soccer, track/cross country, football, college basketball and any Olympic event except boxing and such. It is difficult for me to go a day without some Junior Mints. I wish I were a better evangelist.

Fitness Minutes: 106,290

My Goals:
I will be strong and fit enough to say YES to any physical activity I'm asked to participate in. Biking to MIL's house 50 miles away - YES! Running sprints with my soccer daughter- YES! Kayaking up the river to the next town - YES! Carrying 35 lbs of cat litter into the house - YES!

I will say NO only if I want to, not because I'm unable.

My Program:
Eat food for fuel. Expand my repertoire of healthy foods.

Exercise daily and vary activities - HIIT, running, walking, weights, kayaking, elliptical, yoga, pilates, WATP. I'm taking suggestions!

Make time for relaxation. Get 7-8 hours of sleep. Read something for fun every day.

Personal Information:
Live in NE Wisconsin which means cold winters and hot summers.

Married 29 years in 2017, and have two grown children.

Love to be active. Becoming more diligent about food choices so the 50s flabbies don't set in.

Favorite things: fireflies, bachelor buttons, goldfinches, baby feet, ethnic dances, foreign languages, windyman/airdancer, laughing until it hurts, many many more!

    TP was basically a mini-series. The first season was shorter, but the second had 22 episodes. It's currently on Hulu, though I'm not sure if Netflix carries it. In May, after all these years, they're bringing a reboot back, with some of the original characters. I consider it the best TV show ever made, even though I knew nothing about it when it was originally on. I was in high school at the time and didn't watch it, but a few years ago, my friend told me about it,s o I watched it and was hooked. I now watch it at least once a year, all the way through, and I always find new things in it. It's very quirky....and I love it!

    Thank you for the link and your insightful comment on my blog! I may not seem so introverted online, but that's precisely why I'm a writer and not a member of Toastmasters!
