I'm a retired CPA and want to be healthy for my 2 active grandsons. I babysit them a lot, so they are a big piece of my life now. I'm striving for routines and habits that are sustainable over the long run. I actually started with SP in May, 2010, but under a different user. I've been taking part in the 5% Challenges, currently the 2019 Spring Challenge, and they are great. Even if I don't reach the loss goal, I still stay motivated to keep trying.

Member Since: 11/20/2014

Fitness Minutes: 114,094

My Goals:
UPDATE March 2019
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2019 Spring 5% Challenge
I will track my food daily eating in the calorie range of 1200-1500 calories
I will do 30 minutes of strength exercise daily, alternating core and upper body
I will do the exercise bike/treadmill 30 minutes, 4-5 times a week
I will drink 8-9 glasses of water daily
I will walk 3 miles minimum, daily

My Program:
My program is to do the exercise bike/treadmill 4/5 times a week and walk 3 miles minimum every day. I do strength exercises every day, alternating the major muscles. I will stick to my food plans of 1200-1500 calories which do not include processed food.

Personal Information:
My daughter's family and my brother live near by, so they are a big part of my life. I grand-sit my grandsons (6 & 9) a lot and they are my joy. (They’re the boys in my banner picture, last fall trying out their new soccer equipment). I am a dyed-in-the-wool cat lover.

Reading and playing the piano are my favorite pastimes with computer games right behind them. Trivia bit: I used to sing opera at various recitals. I’m also a Navy vet (Vietnam).

Walking is always my go-to physical activity. I do have access at my apartment building to fitness equipment and I take advantage. Since I don't have a car anymore, there’s a lot of walking to the store. Seattle has a great transit system so it's been workable.

    In honor of Memorial Day weekend, here’s a little military humor:

    You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they can't keep their heads above water.

    Trench warfare should always be a last ditch effort.

    Paratroopers pull strings to stay on the job.

    When the sailor failed to report for duty, he really missed the boat.

    The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.

    Remember to display your flag this weekend! emoticon

    Have a Happy Memorial Day! Enjoy your weekend!

    Thanks for the goodie and your note.

    OMG I first learned about cow-tipping when I went to college in Cheney/Spokane.

    I thought they were pulling my leg, but the guys offered to get me drunk and take me out to find some cows with them.

    Needless to say, I declined.
