Fitness Minutes: 3,056

My Goals:
I would like to be able to maintain a healthy weight and also to remain physically fit. I'd like to lose 2 pound a week, but realistically I realize that 1 pound will be more doable.

October 2012:
Track food daily (begin date, Oct. 8)

Lose 3 lbs

Personal goal: Complete 2 prs socks

My Program:
I want to restrict my caloric intake to a level at which I'll lose weight without starving.

Personal Information:
I live in New England in a small suburb. We own 2 acres, have built our home ourselves and raised 3 children. We now have 4 grandchildren who keep us quite busy. I work full time in a fairly sedentary job, so on my days off I need to work off the lack of exercise from my work days. Because I work 12 hour shifts, there's no opportunity for exercise after or before work.

Other Information:
I love gardening (mostly perrinials and vegetables, I'm a lazy gardener), knitting, reading, construction (yep, give me a hammer and a power drill and I'm a happy girl) and TV (although I'm not a fan of the "reality" shows). I love music of all sorts, with the exception of rap, country and hip-hop.
I feel there are too few hours in the day to do all the things I want to do, so I always feel stressed.

Hi...wanted to let you know I often think of you & wonder how you are doing. Your lil family has grown & it seems has brought happiness into your life..that is great.
I have just been kinda hiding in my mental cave to recoop..not sure from what..just life I think.
But as Spring approaches I will once again get a full head of steam & head outside to organize & sort out my lil world.
I had my mare put down just a couple of days before Christmas..so that has had me bummed to say the least. She was my friend, , my comfort & so much more. Ahh we will ride the storm clouds of the skies togather some day.
HAPPY NEW YEAR & May it bring baskets of Love & Contentment to your home.

I just went back & read Tay's post. Sad to loose her but know she has a bucket full of stuff to tend to. Won't be the same without her..but hopefully the site will stay on & we will all be there to support & befriend each other for some time to come.
Hope you are having a good weekend.
