My name is Carole; I am 66 years old and retired from the music ministry at my church. My hobbies are playing the piano and reading - Christian fiction and non-fiction, and also traditional or cozy mysteries. I've been happily married for 40 years, and have two grown children who are still a big part of my life.

Fitness Minutes: 14,134

My Goals:
My goals are simply to eat healthy, drink lots of water, and exercise - instead of focusing on weight loss. The weight loss will come.

My Program:
Eating:
(1) Track food on the nutrition counter.
(2) Increase water, fiber, fruits & veggies.
(3) Cook frequently from JoAnna Lund's cookbooks. Her recipes are healthy, easy to prepare, and delicious!

Fitness:
(1) Exercise 4-5 days each week, using elliptical trainer and recumbent bike in our basement.
(2) Use Walk away the Pounds DVDs. Leslie Sansone and I are becoming very good friends.

Spiritual:
Without God in the equation, none of this will happen.

Carole, thanks for your prayers and for asking about my dad. He's doing well although he did have a TIA a few weeks ago which has me concerned. He downplays it, of course. He still goes to work on a daily basis and is getting ready for an art show at the end of the month. I'm sure his work is what keeps him going.

I think the Albanian Christian community is still pretty small, so your friend may know of the Bible school. It's interdenominational but meets in the rooms of the local Pentecostal church. Nearby is the Steven Center, a café and meeting point for expats in Tirana, also run by US missionaries. I may be going next month for a short preliminary visit and am really looking forward to it!

Looks like I missed your birthday by a few months!Sorry about that Carole.
Thanks for your comment on my page about my Tiger ears. It was a great time for sure.

Thor has been sleeping with me for the past month for about 2 to 3 hrs. t night. It's not that cold here yet but I guess it's cool enough at night for him. Of course he doesn't leave me much room. LOL
