I'm half through the Winter 5% time flies! I'm so glad I joined as I'm finding myself looking forward to tracking all my food. And I'm reading more inspirational blogs.

I'm in my 60's and I'm not retired. I am loving life, continue to work through physical challenges, & like going to Curves again. I am a mother, a cousin, an auntee, a friend, a co-worker and I volunteer. I had a total hip replacement on 6/23/2015. I am pain-free in my right hip. I can expect to get the other done within 5 years. I joined SP in 2009 and came back recently after a 3 year absence. I'm trying to make a better connection this time with others, workout consistently, and track every day.

I'm still loving life & since 2013, to be honest, I have struggled with a smile on my face. Thank God for good friends and family who have stood by my side as I had came to grips with accepting the fact I'm not as young as I used to be but I'm no where near being considered old. I'm aging gracefully; giving a face to what a 67 year old woman looks like. In the 3 years, I have hardly made it regularly to Curves but something bigger than me has nudged me back into the fitness world. Starting Monday, August 22nd, I am committed to 150 minutes a week exercise. This will include 90 minutes at Curves. I am committed to building in enough down time to allow my body to recover from any discomfort or pain. I will have some, varying degrees.

    Hi Sandy, when I read that your area is covered in snow, I had to look up where you live. Our oldest son, from the Seattle area, came to visit for a couple of days on his way to Minneapolis on a business trip. He showed me pictures this morning, of the front of their house and his two daughters playing in the snow. Yep, they too were off of school and their mother is working from home. Snow Day!!! Enjoy your day.
    Our snow (here in Reno) has almost all washed away these past few days - higher temperatures and some rain. Went briefly to Lake Tahoe, yesterday, and they still have about 5 ft. of snow left. Amazing.
