59 year old wife to a fantastic man; mother of 3 daughters and grandmother to 9 wonderful grandchildren.
I want to be healthy with energy to do the things I like doing. I want bone health as well. My weight goal is 145 pounds.
Other goals: de-clutter, clean and organize my home.
I will log my food and exercise here at SP.
I will use DVD's and videos to augment my walking program.
I will use a pedometer to track my steps with 26000 minimum steps and 30 minute aerobic step minimum.
I'm from SW MO near Branson and have lived here since 1997. I currently work as a substitute teacher, walking to work whenever called to our local school. I volunteer as choir director in my local church. I am a certified music and math teacher in IL.
I love to spend time with my family (especially the grandchildren). I also love to crochet, read, and to play the piano, organ and saxophone.
I like to sew, cook, garden, decorate, craft, teach and help others.

You know I just love the name of my team "Keep Walking With Jesus". It says it all! Walking with Jesus.
Jesus walked every where and so did His disciples. Jesus set the example for how we should live, eat and exercise.
He did not need all these fancy machines to stay healthy and in shape.
Jesus ate fresh fish, lamb, poultry, beef, fruits, nuts, veggies and honey. Nothing was refined or artificial. In Jesus' day they didn't fry foods, it was baked or cooked over an open flame.
Can you imagine eating like our Lord? Walking in His footsteps? Just think about it, treating our bodies like our Lord treated His. Wouldn't that be great!
Be Blessed and think about eating Healthy unrefined foods.

"Happy Mother's Day"
Look at your current eating behaviors and set some goals for change. Be realistic, and focus on short-term goals that you can accomplish within a few weeks. For example, if you usually skip breakfast, make a goal to eat breakfast every day for the next week. A study of the National Weight Control Registry shows that people who have lost weight and kept it off tend to eat breakfast every day, and eating breakfast may be a factor in their success. Write it down, and tape notes that say "Don't forget breakfast!" to your bathroom mirror, inside your pantry door and on your refrigerator. When you set lofty goals that take years to accomplish, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and go back to bad eating habits. Set one to three mini goals at a time and keep working until you have mastered them.
