Christmas Tree



Add as SparkFriend Send Private Message Leave Comment

I retired in January '08 from a pretty strenous and active job as a medic. I am finding myself gaining weight faster than I would like and decided it is time to do something about it. I am an avid needleworker favoring knitting and needlepoint in that order. My husband and I also enjoy exploring NC wineries while seeing parts of this state we would not otherwise venture into.

Fitness Minutes: 780

My Goals:
Get myself in better shape while loosing a few pounds. I know this means learning better eating habits, but what ever it takes.

My Program:
I have been trying to watch my portions. That seems to be a big issue - I don't need all that is served in a restaurant, for example. Lately I have been trying to walk, but found it was bothering my back. So, now we have more strength training to do and hopefully that will strengthen the abs so I can walk distance again.

Personal Information:
My name is Martha and I could myself as a native North Carolinian since I was born in Asheville and have lived all but 4 years in the state. I am married (36 years in August!) have 2 daughters, both out of the house and one grandson and a grand-gelding. Life is great since I retired but I do miss the connection with the people. That is where Sparks comes in. I enjoy the conversations. I am staying busy with my "stash box" and all the projects that have accumulated over the past 11 years of working. Knitting, sewing and needlepoint, plus some other crafts are keeping me busy.

Other Information:
I have just discovered the wide variety of fiction books dealing with knitting. I have just finished "Shop on Blossom Street" and ordered the next 2 in that series. DH also gave me the first in another series "Knit One, Kill Two". I would call that one a light mystery. Blossom Street was a great read, very captivating and something in which I saw a lot of myself. YIKES!! Movies vary. 2 of my favs are Dancing with Wolves and Dirty Dancing - you would think I was a dancer??? NOT!
