Hi everyone!

Thank you for stopping by. It is always nice when Sparkfriends come to visit!! You just made my day!l

Member Since: 8/28/2006

Fitness Minutes: 119,855

My Goals:
I have to get my weight down as well as my blood sugar levels. My goal is to lose 10 pounds this time during the 5% Challenge.
My fasting blood sugars have been getting higher so I must exercise and watch what I eat, doctor's orders.

My Program:
Since we are far enough from town to limit joining a gym I have made a nice home gym here. I just need to use it. I have loads of DVDs, a pilates reformer, fitness ball, weight and bands.
Watching my carb intake makes all the difference in my blood sugar levels. I am not sure just how low I can consistently go with my carbs. I eat and test to see what is working and what does not. Basically no eating of nasty white stuff: sugar, flour, etc.
In order to reach my goals tracking is a must as well as 30 minutes plus exercise each day.

Personal Information:
I am 68, been on Sparkpeople since 2006 and will always be a Firecracker. We are originally from Baltimore, MD and now live in wild, wonderful WV! I miss some of the convenience of 'city' life but do love country living even if it takes 25 minutes to get to town. My 2 children are grown and I miss them so I spy on FB whenever I can!!

Update: My husband died from a stroke this summer. He ate healthy, exercised and was very active around our rural home plus 7 years younger than me. Its been a rough 6 months. I will be 70 next birthday and need to get better at taking care of mr.

Other Information:
I use Lose It to track my food because I don't have to be online to do it. I have had a Fitbit since 2010. I love Walk It Out on my Wii, still enjoy looking for the rainbow! We bought a used RPod Camper over the winter and I have really enjoyed camping.
