Hi everyone!

Thank you for stopping by. It is always nice when Sparkfriends come to visit!! You just made me feel special!!

FYI, I have very unreliable internet so I often don't respond in a timely manner.

Fitness Minutes: 93,861

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 Spring 2018 Challenge. My fasting blood sugars have been getting higher so I must exercise and watch my carbs.

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 67, been on Sparks a long time 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!!

Other Information:
I use LoseIt 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 so I can't wait to hit the road this Spring...if it ever stops snowing!
