Musician, bookworm, dancer, photographer.
I originally lost 15 lbs. tracking my food on Spark and using Leslie Sansone Walk At Home DVDs, as well as walk/running outdoors.
I've started running more and walking for longer periods, as well as using some Coach Nicole videos for ST and cardio. But this summer, I have slipped...enjoying a little too much food...still pretty healthy but I need to cut quantities and do more veggies consistently.

Don't know when I will reach my ultimate goal. Right now, it is two steps forward, one step back...or vice versa. However, I am hopeful! I do feel consistently fit and at age 67, that's a good thing.

Fave quotes:
"Try Again. Fail again. Fail better." Samuel Beckett

“Don’t trade what you want most for what you want at this moment.”

"Mind like parachute - only function when open!" Charlie Chan

"The only worse thing than having made a mistake is failing to understand your mistake." Oswald Sobrino, Catholic blogger

"This self is not a cage to be escaped, in pursuit of elusive joy: it is in me." CAROLINAMUSED

“The mighty oak was once a little nut that stood its ground.” - Unknown

KARVY09 - "Food's always going to be there. What works for me is tackling it head on instead of avoiding it."

Madeleine L'Engle - "The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been."

Marcel Proust - “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

"Live by the 80/20 rule. Eating nutritious foods 80% of the time and "fun" foods 20% of the time is a healthy goal." - Sparkpeople article

My Goals:
I've reached a major weight loss goal of 139, but I'm now working on maintaining that & losing 5-7 more pounds by the end of August 2012. I've gotten much more comfortable running, and I have more energy for my day! I'm also enjoying fitting into smaller clothes. Thanks, SparkPeople and SparkFriends! Hugs!


My Program:
I've gotten more structured as a result of sparking!
Goal - 3-5 miles a day, either outdoors or with Leslie Sansone DVDs.
I need to do more ST...but a daily structure just does not work for me.
I'm trying a simpler approach to ST, seeing if I can fit in sets of it while waiting for things to cook, etc.

I had worked up to 8 lb. weights for arms but am now back to 5 lbs. for all but the easiest moves.



Personal Information:
I'm from Pennsylvania & turned 67 this summer. I'd like to continue to look & feel younger than that! I'd like to be able to dance and sing forever, and haul my suitcase around Europe with no pain.


Other Information:
I love my Kindle & my local library! I also enjoy contradancing & ballroom dancing, when I can find a partner. I am enjoying learning to speak and read French and I love to take photos.

    I absolutely understand the need to go "A.W.O.L." for a bit, to deal with feeling like you are over-focusing on weight and food - boy oh boy, do I understand that. I think this is the place where we can come and go and contribute and enjoy the time we are here, and not apologize for the time we take a little break. Always happy to see you and hear from you. emoticon

    Mad Magazine forever, but I have a feeling it had its place and time -- late childhood through early adolescence. This doesn't mean I'm not tempted to find a new copy to see if it makes my heart fuzzy warm.
