This is 2017 and time for some new Goals, As I age, this year I turn 77, so I'm still trying to keep my body healthy, moving and full of energy.

Basically, I want to do 3 days of Strength exercise and 2 days of Cardio. I have to walk at least 30 minutes a day on the treadmill.
I really hate to be labeled and old person. I know I have some new wrinkles on my face, and now almost all grey hair, but I sure don't want to be slow in movement, like most old people. I know with time my body will slow down as I'm sure it will, but I'm not ready for that yet. I will keep it moving and trying to be strong, as long as I can. When I do start the do that I guess I will just have to put up with that label. From going to the Gym through my Health Insurance Co. Kaiser, using "Silver and Fit" They sent me a nice Base Ball Cap, and on Jan. 23 I received a very nice "Silver and Fit Pin" I have copies of them in my Photos Page.

Thanks to you all that send me encouragement. I wish you well and hope that you all reach your goals, that you have set for you in 2017.

Sparks always has some interesting suggestion and articles with different Helps and Aids. I love to follow their exercise plans that they offer. I fave been taking some of the Spark Challenges, each one is a real challenge, They are really helpful.

If you are truly working the Sparks Program, I would love to have you as a friend and Love to hear how you are doing on reaching your goals. I hope you will send me a note.

Thanks. Virginia
