Fitness Minutes: 41,197

My Goals:
My Long-term Goal: getting lean and fit, and then staying that way! I will do this by a lifetime of
1. controlling portions, to prevent future weight gain
2. continuing in a fitness regime -- no matter what the season!

My Program:
1. I will be faithful in filling in my Spark People food dairy every day, and restrict my caloric intake to the recommended amount
2. I will walk for 15 minutes @ 17 min/mile, every single day
3. I will find time to walk (or do other cardio activities) an additional 105 minutes each week, for a total of 180 minutes of cardio per week and a total of 600 calories burned per week.
4. I will continue on a strength training regime to build muscle. For each weekday (M-F) I do my strength exercises , I will set aside $5 for THE BEATLES REMASTERED CD BOX SET being released 9-9-09!!!
5. By the end of September 2009, I will have a plan for cardio exercise during cold weather.

Personal Information:
I was a skinny person most of my life, so I don't have issues with food. What I do have is a middle-aged body that just LOVES to gain weight now. I used to be able to eat anything with impunity; now, I am having to learn how much I can eat and not gain.
I am a pescetarian (I eat fish and seafood, but not meat - no beef, no pork, no chicken.)

Other Information:
I'm married to a musician, and have 1 grown son from a previous marriage. I'm a former classical violinist (tendonitis did me in...) but I have a rock n' roll heart. The Beatles are my idols, particularly Paul McCartney. I'm an anglophile, and can't wait until my next trip to the UK. I love gardening, photography, beading and jewelry-making, crocheting, and making art out of castoff "stuff."

    I listened to the new Beatles music on the radio yesterday. They were playing it all day. It sounds wonderful.

    I love your new page.

    Hi! Thanks for your comment on my photo progrress. You look fabulous! I want to be you when I grow up! emoticon

    BTW... if you want Michelle Obama arms... come check out the 100 pushup challenge... it's killer, it seems impossible, but it's actually realistic and doable, and it really results in some awesome arms and shoulders.

    That smile is what will make me sexy at age 100, along with eyes that twinkle! You know all about that, since you're an optimistic smiling chick yourself.
