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.

Member Since: 1/23/2013

Fitness Minutes: 80,310

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 28 years in 2016, and have two grown children.

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

Having a heckuva time keeping those Junior Mints out of my mouth. They are my worst temptation.

    The one area you might have issues with is your drainage--watch that there is no back up and it probably would not hurt to put some drain cleaners down all your drains just to help keep it from clogging up along the line----what a mess that was!

    OMG, I LOVE the youtube link you sent me! Thank you soooo much. The link says it is a 4 hour video, but I have only listened to the first song so far. I love the sound of piano & violin music and your right in that it is very relaxing. I don't quite understand how youtube works because who would want to pay for this when you can hear it for free? Did you by chance buy the iTune version? So, thanks again, for your thoughtfulness and all of the support you give!

    Thank you for reminding me of the strategy to say "not right now" to food pushers. I knew it and forgot about it. Very helpful.

    Your Day 26 thinking mistake identification was great, you are right on the spot!
    There is only one more I can think of: the part about you will never have the chance to have the shake again - that could qualify as #9 exaggerated thinking.
