Well I hit 50 and circumstances prevented me from getting fit by then but I am recommitting to being fit in 2011. Just as soon as I can really exercise again I'm going at it full steam ahead.
I go to exercise class twice a week most weeks. I have numorous walking and exercise DVDs. I also have a Wii and a Wii Fit. I am trying to use all of them a little more than I have been lately.
I live in the little town of Spring Mills, PA, about 20 miles east of State College and Penn State. I grew up in Florida so I like warm weather.
I have been married for 20+ years and have 5 children (3 of my own and 2 Step), and 8 grandchildren (3 step and 5 of my own).
I like to camp and hike and ride my bike. And of course being with the grandchildren as much as possible.
I also belong to TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly). I reached my goal in 2000 and am currently in leeway, which means I am a KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly). You can be 3 pounds above or 7 below your goal to be in leeway.
I understand the winter blues, especially this winter! Push yourself to keep moving OR put a yummy, healthy soup or stew on the stove and dive into a good book while dinner simmers away. Sometimes talking to a good friend can chase the blues away, too. Anyone you haven't called for awhile?? AND there are Spark friends and TOPS friends, too. We've all been through the blues and we'll all help you pull out of them. You are way too upbeat and active to stay down long though!!
Thank you for stopping by with the birthday wishes! I really appreciate your kindness. Thank you also for the friend add as well. I have added you too. I am also in TOPS as of April of last year. The bear you gave me reminds me of the bear we take home if we are the biggest loser of the week. He came home with me last night. Looking forward to getting to know you.
