On my way to the pool for a swim.

The swim was great, water warm and it was just hubby and I. 😊

I can dream can't I?

I've been down the road of "healthy living" before, but took a few wrong turns. It's time to get back on track again. I've been a member of Weight Watchers and I know that works, but haven't been to meetings in a few months and have had some other issues (that I won't mention right now) which have resulted in way to many pounds packed on to an already overweight person. It is time to get serious!!
Update - 2014, now a member of TOPS for two years and doing better with my weight. Also doing better with exercise, go 5 to 6 days a week. Still have problems with snacking and emotional eating but working hard to get it under control.

Member Since: 3/31/2011

Fitness Minutes: 30,727

My Goals:
My goal is to get control of my emotional eating and to make activity (exercise is a four letter word to me) a regular part of my life.

My Program:
I am a member of Weight Watchers and will be doing the Walk-it 5K in May. I have started attending a workshop on Emotional Eating. As of Aug. 2012 have been a member of TOPS and I now belong to Planet Fitness.

Personal Information:
I have been a stay at home mom for the past 12 years. My life gets hectic with the family, kids activities and volunteering at school. Turning 50 years old last year bothered me more than I ever thought it would - but I guess it is time to get over it and just live my life to the fullest (no pun intended). Update, survived turning 50 and the kids have gotten older so I don't need to help at school.

Other Information:
When I find myself with extra time I do like to read, garden, bird watch, crafts, puzzles, and sew.

    emoticon I am measuring(fitbit) and, like you, I'm getting 4-5 miles a day. I've been really good the past two months. It has been so hot that my secret weapon has been the treadmill; I am so glad that I found out that I can read while I walked...why didn't I try that years ago? My treadmill came from a yard sale years ago, sat in the bedroom collecting clothes for some years and eventually moved out to the garage for a year or two. I started walking seriously this spring...and then the heat hit! Well, I had the brilliant idea of just plugging the treadmill in and walking in the garage with a fan blasting at me. It was really boring so one day I took my kindle out there; after a couple of weeks my husband said, "If you are really serious, let's take this thing back in the house because it is too hot out here!" Now I walk indoors and read...the time goes fast and I'm definitely not bored. I have walked outdoors on cooler days though, just to change it up.
    Wish we could walk together, Peg.
