Hey MCGOVERNT44! I love Galena. What a beautiful town! We used to go camping up there at Palace campground, but have not been in awhile. Great little shops too!

Jill,

I'm doing well thanks!! I've been pretty good on the healthy habits. When I'm home alone and want something just to much on I grab a bag of veggies I have cut up in the fridge. I graze until I'm full and not over do it on the calories. I joined a weight loss pool. If I lose 10% of my weight by April 16th I go into a finalist pool. The people that maintain the following 4 weeks splits the pot. Last I heard it was $625. Now that is some incentive!!

Initial Goals:
1. Get back into my previous weight loss jeans.

2. Meet my fiber requirements 5 days a week.

Now that I am finally exercising for the first time in 23 years I have decided to set these weekly exercise goals.

1. Walk or go to the gym 3 - 4 days a week.
2. Strength training 2 - 3 times a week

Jill,

I took my son and his friend to baseball camp in Champaign right after Christmas. They had a great time at camp. I should have waved on my way through.

60 miles south of Chicago.

Take some time to dance on a dime and sing from the top of your lungs.
Be silly, get down, put a smile over that frown, and remember who you want to be.
Twist and shout, don't forget to get out, and bring new life to you. The mind is a strange thing. It can make you believe in the impossible or make you beleive it's not possible.
THE ONLY THING STOPPING YOU, IS YOU !! Dance til the inside of your soul smiles.

I might fail, but I will not quit.

A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison.

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.
