Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I live near the Kansas City area, but on the Kansas side. I have a wonderful husband, 2 children and 8 stepchildren. I am a retired teacher, who loves it--there are so many things to do. I like cards and games, crosswords, etc. and church activities. I also enjoy my 17 grandchildren.
My goals are to follow a healthy lifestyle which includes exercise, good eating habits, and getting enough rest.
I am using the SP menu planner to record my food intake and check for balance. I use the WW 8 guidelines for healthy eating. I do water wellness exercises 5 days per week, and weights 2 or 3 days per week. I need to restart walking and weights, but am not mentally ready yet.
I enjoy most fiction books, but am especially fond of mystery and romance. I collect swans and enjoy flower gardening. I like to cook especially experimenting with lowering calories/sugar in desserts.
I also enjoy playing card games, crosswords, jumbles, and cryptoquips in our daily paper. I am active in teaching SS and children's church.

I am so excited that you are doing the water thing, too! I had NO idea it was this accessible to me. I've undergone wound care for the last five months or so at one of our local rehabilitation centers, staffed by physical therapists. I called them to see if they knew where I might be able to find this type of class and they hold them at the same facility! I asked if the classes were for beginners and she assured me they are. They even have some with "noodles." I thought that was funny. lol I expect the surgeon to release me next Thursday, so I'll be able to start the first week of August! Thank you for your encouragement. I appreciate that!! Recover fully from that bronchitis. Don't let it worsen into pneumonia, PLEASE. (On my web site, www.nolady.net, you can see our son's trauma with that in January 2008.) God bless you richly!!

Great pictures. Especially of the Farmall. My Dad is a huge collector of vintage tractors (he has a 1945 Farmall M and a 1946(?) Super M). Plus, he has about 10 other John Deere tractors.
