I am just a bit of a rabble-rouser.

I am tired of not being able to do all the things I want to do with my husband and my grandson. I need to get thin and get fit.
We are going to be going to St. John in the USVI for Thansgiving week this year, and I want to be able to do all the fun things everyone else wants to do, and not hold us back because of my weight and lack of physical fitness. There are trails to hike (some quite steep and hilly) some beaches that can only be reached by hiking, and lots of water activities. I want to be part of it all. I WILL be part of it all.
I am thankful to God for leading me to SparkPeople for help and guidance. I will need his help in this quest, and I know he will give it to me.

My Goals:
Thanksgiving week in 2008 I will be goint to St. John in the USVI for a week with my husband, our son, our daughter-in-law and our grandson. I want to be able to visit the beaches that need hiking to, I want to be able to walk the trails, and all the other things that will make this wonderful vacation with my loved ones special.


My Program:
My husband and I (both retired) are attending our county's Sports Complex where Seniors may attend for free on M-W-F to work out on the machines, use the track, and use the swimming pools. We do track for an hour, use the weight training machines for an hour, and head down to the pool for water walking for up to 2 hours. It is marvelous how good we feel when we are done, and the company of other seniors makes it a great social experience, too. Dieting is tough, but we are in this together and finding all sorts of interesting ways to make food nutritious, lo-cal, and yummy.

Other Information:
I love to read books and I love the internet. To find a website designed to help me with my health and weight-loss issues is divine. I am hooked already!

    Hmmm...what WOULD I be for Halloween? I'm already technically a cat lady since we have 5 so that won't work.... Hmm... I know! I'd go as a Christmas Tree! LOL Just dress me in green, wrap some lights around me, tape on some paper "ornaments" and figure out a way to power the lights while I'm walking around...

    hehehe
