I am a 72 year old great grandmother that just wants to stay healthy. I live on 5 acres with my husband, dog and chickens. We are not the traveling kind and are living our dream.

Member Since: 5/4/2009

Fitness Minutes: 269,897

My Goals:
Reached my 125 goal today, June 21, 2010, now I think I will try for 120.

Well, today, March 2, 2013, my goal again is to get to 125 and maintain the weight once I get there. I kind of let myself slip when I started having back pain. I need to get a grip. I only need to lose 13 pounds to be where I want to be.

Today is March 17, 2015 and my goal is to get to 130.

My Program:
Going to the gym a minimum of 3 days a week for strength and cardio, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday strength, stretching and recumbent bike at home. Hula Hooping 5 minutes per day at least once a day.

Personal Information:
I was born in Albany, California, moved to Vacaville, California when I was 5 and lived there most of my life. My husband and I retired to Oroville, California in 2002. My Grandmother, Father and I were all born and raised in California so that makes me 3rd genertion.

Other Information:
I love to garden. I have five different gardens on our 5 acres not counting my vegetable garden. I have a cactus garden, lantana garden, a verbena garden, iris garden and a garden with evergreen schrubs that bloom. I also have a 24" border around my house with different plants. I put the gardens where there were big rocks so my husbund would not mow over the rocks while we were developing our property. Now the gardens are part of our landscaping.

    I listened to "It's Finally Friday " by George Jones and it was good even if I don't much care for country music. Who do you like performing this song? Each artist does it differently I am sure!

    Living in the country seems to always have the problem of Internet connectivity. I think it is worth it though. I have They are average a lot of time but there are times when service really falls down. They are having problems with the relay they I get my signal from now. They are going to put it on another one. I have to call about once a week to get them to reset the antennae. I have thought of moving to AT&T at times but feel I'm better to stay with what I have. One of the problems we have is all of the large trees around my house and area. They can't use what they would like to.

    I've done very little on my garden this year. I'm concentrating on working on the house. My greenhouse panels blew out and were shattering last winter so it is not much use. Next year I might see if I can fix it. For this year I think it will just be Farmer's market.

    I'm surprised I didn't cross paths with you at Costco. That seems to happen a lot. Let's try and get together some time in June. That is an easier time for me also.
