disclaimer: i do the no caps thing as it's a lot easier on my hands - if i could figure out a way to not hit the space bar my thumbs would be so happy!

so i do some things right, but not often enough to really achieve the level of fitness & good health i'd like.

i eat well, but too much. i like to exercise, but have trouble finding the time & then i get derailed by injuries (big & small). i am not very consistent with planning meals and getting in workouts.

i've lost 10-12 pounds a year for the last four years, but would like to lose the last 45 or so this year.

My Goals:
short term:

wear a chic dress to the auction march 20 (it's already hanging in the closet)

get rid of the last of those size 14s and get a new pair of fancy jeans

long term:

swim & bike (this isn't as hard as running)

good numbers - cholesterol etc.

My Program:
yoga at least 3 times per week

use the spark daily (fitness & nutrition particularly)

working up to:

20 mins walking daily

30 mins biking 3 times per week

swimming 3 times per week

Personal Information:
i have three daughters 23, 22, 17, and a nice husband who is home on the weekends.

i live near the beach & try to get there once a week.

i work full time.
i am working on my college degree and hope to finish in 2011.

my hobbies include: singing in the church choir, cooking, being more conscious about the way i live my life, gardening, reading, music, and movies. getting old has made it hard to enjoy some of these, but i'm going to make it work.

i have re-discovered my love of exercise, so i don't think of it as a hobby! i am loving yoga & swimming. biking is okay. i can't wait til i can walk & maybe even run for fitness again.

    Hi. I am in Waco, TX not Virgina but I know there is a walking club in your area if you are interested in participating in local events on a regular basis. I do similar walks every weekend. We are not "fund raising" clubs, we are for fun, fitness and fellowship. Our clubs are family oriented and most events are baby stroller, and pet friendly. Our object is to keep a record book and collect a stamp for each event that we do. I've done over a 1000 of the 10K events in Texas and in 46 other states. Visit my blogs and see my recent adventures. Here is the information on our local club:

    Club Name: Gator Volksmarsch Club
    Address: PO Box 62262
    City: Virginia Beach
    State: VA
    Zip: 23466-2262
    Contact: Kenneth L. Eberhart
    Phone: (757) 490-9324
