Now is Still a Good Time

My objectives for fitness and weight have not changed since I started using this site a years ago. I still want to be CAPABLE of doing everything I want to be able to do! Even if I don't do it!!

I am not exactly a spring chicken, but that does not limit what I want to do. I especially enjoy walking and backpacking, primarily to the small mountain lakes. Thanks to a very active family, we also do some pack-in camping.

I've been a gym rat most of my adult life. At times I have been a bit selfish in finding time to go, but in the long run I developed a strong habit that has made it easy to return after various setbacks.

See you at Alton Baker, or Pisgah, the gym, in a pub or just doing something!!!

Wow that is an accomplishment.... Mt. St. Helen. I took the Silver Falls hike last year along the canyon and then back to the campground. Everyone was ahead of me, but I made it! 9.5 miles. I hiked Spencer's Butte the other day. Hopefully, I'll get in better shape so I can do it more often. I love the view! Have a great day and very nice to meet you. emoticon

Hello Keith, I was not very successful in getting walks going. I trained last year and did the half-marathon in May of 2011 and that was an accomplishment. But I was not able to get the sparkers going on walks. I don't know if it was timing or what. But I am doing other things now. I hope you are more successful than I was. I've started a weight loss blog elsewhere and would like to help people lose weight. I know what a challenge it is. Good luck with your endeavors.
Kind regards,
Ann
