My Goals:
I want to make healthier choices. Instead of reaching for something sweet...I want to reach for that piece of fruit. Instead of sitting on the sofa I want to have the energy to get up and get going!

My Program:
Plans are to do cardio at least 5 days a week and incorporate strength trainigng for 3 days. I would really like to take spinning classes but embarrassment keeps me from attemtpting that just yet. BUT I will eventually get there.

Personal Information:
I'm an "Ole" Texas gal. I'm 52. I have two grown kids and 3 wonderful grandkids. I have two rescue dogs that are very dear to me. Jazzie and Amber are their names. They sure help me through some lonely days and nights.

Other Information:
I enjoy gardening until the weather changes to dreadfully HOT.

Wanted to give you a big welcome to Sparkpeople and the gardening team from your neighbor in Arkansas...I wish you lots of luck in your garden and health ventures this year. I've only been with Sparkpeople for a little while but it has really helped. I'm 51 and finding that it is much more of a struggle to lose the weight now than ever before. Being part of the team has really helped...we encourage one another and that really helps alot. Hang in there girl...you can do it.

I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our EarthWalkers team.

We're a great group of people who help each other stay motivated and focused on our goals. The goal for the team is to record enough miles to walk around the Equator. We have different challenges each month as we walk to exercise and collect the miles needed to reach our final destiny.

I hope you will enjoy being with our team and we look forward to getting to know you. We chat at Enuff's Cafe thread. Come in and join us.

I wish you continued success in your journey to achieve your goals.

EarthWalkers, Team Leader

I am here to make this site work for me and if I can help anyone else then that's an added pleasure.
