It's time to be healthy and to have more energy, and to be kind to my knees. I'm 56 years old and I've been skinny most of my life--until I hit the 40's, then it all piled on. Spark People is so motivating to me! Now I'm working out daily, lifting weights, doing exercise DVDs, and logging my meals. I feel so much better living this way.

1. I'm on a SP bike challenge to ride 200 miles in July
2. I'm on a SP walking challenge to walk 45 miles in July
3. Continue working on upper body strength
4. Continue sit-ups.
5. Continue other strength dvd's--finish Jillian Michaels' 30 DS
6. Continue elliptical

    Have you been out on your bike? Now that I have elderly parents to be looking after, plus my DH, I'm wondering if I'll get out for a bike ride. It is early in the season yet but right now I'm either busy with someone or it is raining. It'll happen!! I hope you've had some good rides already!!
