Over here on the soggy Oregon Coast, if you can't find inspiration in the rain, your soul will just dissolve away. It's hard to stay excited about exercise and healthy eating habits when the rain and hail are blowing around for the umpteenth week straight and all you want to do is sit inside in the gloom with your munchies and watch TV.

I fight the gloomies by reading, writing, and practicing music with friends. I do enjoy sharing meals with friends, as well. Food is one of life's great delights, and I enjoy preparing meals to share.

Of course, eventually the skies clear (if only temporarily), we emerge from the gloom, and get out to enjoy the glorious outdoors.

Fitness Minutes: 15,576

My Goals:
I just want to be drop-dead gorgeous.

Seriously, I'd like to be at the middle-upper part of my healthy weight range. I've been thinner than that, but really don't want to spend my whole life obsessed with my weight. Healthy-normal is good enough for me.

I want to be fit enough to enjoy a nice hike or get through a work day without becoming exhausted.

My Program:
Mostly, I just want to eat healthy foods and get up and moving. I really believe that a successful diet plan shouldn't be complicated. I won't follow a plan that tells me what to eat and when, and I'm pretty sure the people I cook for won't either!

Personal Information:
46 years old.
2005 Eastern Oregon University graduate.
One son, 22yo.

    Thank you for the wonderful garden tools. If I actually mowed my hillside acre with that rotary mower, I would be in excellent shape.

    Thanks for your support on my bananaphobia blog.

    I think the reason I want to learn to like bananas is because I'm always telling my son to try things and be more flexible. So why not ask the same of myself? :)

    I love the Oregon coast by the way.

    I've added you as a friend. :)

    Hi, sorry I am not on TOPS often but busy with another challenge. When is the SRD? My TOPS group has not been to any of the SRD's and presently planning on attending one. I guess my magazine would tell me ... I am sending you some color for a Easter picture. LOL Hope you have a Blessed EASTER!!! Elaine emoticon

    Thank you for the spark goodie and I added you to my friends list. Hope that is o.k. My grandfather and Dad were stationed at Cape Meares and my mom grew up at Heceta Head light station and Bandon.
