"If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." --Milton Berle

We are always one thought away from an opportunity to succeed and change our lives. I will remember this and read this daily and take appropriate action. It’s time to put a few prizes within grasping distance!

For 2019, I'm going for the gold....whatever it takes. I will enter 2020:

1. Fighting for and then maintaining my ideal weight range
2. With a clean organized house
3. With more items checked off my bucket list
4 With energy and a great future outlook


Here are the challenges I currently participate in:

5% challenge - Cloverleafs Team


Member Since: 8/4/2016

Fitness Minutes: 40,681

My Goals:
I'm a crazy bucket list kind of a girl and it's served me well. By pursuing #1, I hope to be able to accomplish the other things on my list including those listed below.

1) Eat a clean diet, nourish my body, my brain, and find myself feeling better than ever before.

2) Bike 100,000 miles after my 50th birthday. As of 11/26/18, I have 87,320 miles to go!

3) #1 on my bucket list is to spend 3 weeks hiking to Base Camp 1.or in the Himalayas somewhere tbd. I've been fascinated with many stories about Mt. Everest ever since I read Jon Krakaer's "Into Thin Air." I have contemplated doing this hike for decades, but gave up on the idea after 2006. In 2016 I had a change of heart, change in hope and made this my #1 goal.

I want to do a hike in this area in the next 3-5 years and am on it! It’s definitely a reach for me. I’m not into crowds and prefer places off the beaten path so I likely will not go to Basecamp 1, but somewhere else in the Himalayas or Tibet. We wil


My Program:
I'm constantly working with this and I read a lot on diet, nutrition, health, etc. I believe in alternative therapies, and the power of the mind.

Deepak Chopra's book "What are you hungry for?" has captured my attention. Healthy eating but also healthy mind-body thoughts I relate well to. We'll see where this goes. (1/26/19)

I'm going back to the Whole30 plan after discussing this with my dr. I also plan to implement some of what Chopra discussed in his book. It made sense. (3/27/19) Ummmm...recommitting. 10/4/19




Personal Information:

Married, 53 years old, 2 dogs. Work full-time. I Love to travel. The bicycle is my favorite mode of transportation. Last major bike trip was 2 weeks in England, 400-500 miles.

I have a bazillion interests and hobbies which include quilting, reading, hiking, bicycling, hula-hooping, writing, cross-stitching, kayaking, bird watching, photography, downhill skiing, x-country skiing, snow shoeing, and puzzles.
