Hey there... from Texas,

I have been with SP for a few years but really got a jump-start from swimsuit bootcamp. I hit the half-century mark age-wise this past April (08), and I want to keep my body from deteriorating. I also want my family to become more atuned to health and fitness...even if it is by osmosis.

SP has the best videos and exercises to fit in anytime. You don't have to waste time with traveling to a gym, and you can split your workouts in any way that works. What a deal!

Now that our family has been working out on the Wii Fit, our home has become an even better gym. I can't wait until they come out with something else similar to Wii Fit.

I have been discovering so much more on Spark. I have the Spark page as part of my home page which helps me build my days closer to a healthy lifetyle.

For now, adios...and best of luck with finding the treaures hidden in Spark People.

My Goals:
My goals are to use portion control, develop food constraint at buffet-style or potluck meaks, to maintain daily exercise even if it is not substantial, and to eat a healthy diet in spite what my family eats.

My Program:
Breakfast and lunch on my own are small portions of healthy food, when I work out I use weights and use SP videos. I am working on drinking enough water, and I constantly look for red meat substitutions.

Personal Information:
I am originally from El Paso (desert Southwest) but right now my husband, kids, and I are stuck living in a suburb of Houston. My brothers, sisters, and mom are spead from Illinois, El Paso, and California.

Other Information:
At a high school assembly, I remember seeing a 60-year-old woman walking on her hands, and I told myself I wanted to be in that shape when I was that age.

    emoticon Greetings JR, from me again!

    So many people have been complaining about the flu or colds that I decided I’d put a tidbit of information for my tip of the week. If you know someone that is afflicted by flu or cold cough symptoms, maybe you could pass this info on to them.

    A tidbit about Vicks 44 cough Relief: There is little or no evidence that Vicks 44 Cough Relief, Mucinex DM or Robitussin Maximum Strength help relieve coughs caused by colds or flu.
    Here’s a surprise! Cough medicines like these don’t work to cure a cough. Instead, try a drug for post-nasal drip like Benadryl-D or Triaminic Cold & Allergy.

    Get well or stay well and keep warm!

    Hey JR! Here’s a little set of fun facts for you: emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    9 reasons why you should eat your vegetables including leafy greens: 1)calories, only 10 – 50 per serving. 2)vitamins, they are packed with K, potassium, iron, folate, and lutin. 3)heart disease, lowers the risk. 4)stroke, lowers the risk. 5)cancer, lowers the risk of colon cancer. 6)potassium, lowers blood pressure. 7)Lutin and its cousin zeaxanthin are the key carotenoids in the lens of the eye. 8)vitamin K allows the blood to clot. 9)taste, eat them raw or steam them and they are delicious! So eat your veggies!

    I hope this week goes well for you. Remember…keep on keeping on! This is a battle of determination and persistence and is not for the feint of heart! YOU have to MAKE it happen!

    Hugs and Blessings~Dusty
