I run through the forest
And smell the wet soil
It has rained
And the leaves are still leaking rain drops
The sun smiles down with rays
And the sky wears its prettiest blue dress
I settle by an oak tree
And lock eyes with a deer
We are both curious
Comfortably so
He comes within three feet of me
Before stamping back to his business
And I walk back to mine

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Weight loss through lowering stress levels, sharing with friends and group support. I don't need fast weight loss, just consistent. I would like to lose 60 pounds - not an easy task for me because of some health issues but I don't give up easily!

My Program:
I am watching my calories by eating only "healthy" foods in accordance with my doctor's recommendations and trying to get more exercise. I think I own about every exercise DVD and Wii program out there and also recently bought an activity tracker. I'm trying to walk a lot more as my main form of exercise. For me the secret is audiobooks - I only listen when I exercise so I'm motivated because I want to hear more of the story.

Personal Information:
I was widowed in 1999 and remarried in 2002. I spent the next 5 years teaching High School biology in a very small school 67 miles from home until I retired in 2008. We recently moved to Grants Pass, Oregon, a difficult move because my husband had lived in our other house for over 40 years. Now we're looking forward to our new life in our new home.

Other Information:
I love fantasy and magic, the ideas anyway. I'm a big Harry Potter fan and fantasy book reader. I love to read, I own a lot of audio books and like to listen to them when I walk. I got interested in YA books while teaching high school and continued reading them after retirement. I also try to keep my mind active by playing RPG computer games.
