My name is Carole; I am 68 years old and retired from the music ministry at my church. My hobbies are playing the piano and reading - Christian fiction and non-fiction, and also traditional or cozy mysteries. I've been happily married for 42 years, and have two grown children who are still a big part of my life.

Member Since: 3/12/2007

Fitness Minutes: 15,028

My Goals:
My goals are simply to eat healthy, drink lots of water, and exercise - instead of focusing on weight loss. The weight loss will come.

My Program:
(1) Track food on the nutrition counter.
(2) Increase water, fiber, fruits & veggies.
(3) Cook frequently from JoAnna Lund's cookbooks. Her recipes are healthy, easy to prepare, and delicious!

(1) Exercise 4-5 days each week, using elliptical trainer and recumbent bike in our basement.
(2) Use Walk away the Pounds DVDs. Leslie Sansone and I are becoming very good friends.

Without God in the equation, none of this will happen.

Personal Information:
My husband suffers from diabetes, heart disease and fibromyalgia; I'm just trying to take care of him and stay healthy.

    Dear Carole. I am so happy to hear from you. I bet your services were beautiful as well. I love a lot of comtemporary Christian music, but also love the old traditional songs. I want to stay in touch. I'm gong to spark mail you my home address and phone so we can do that. OK?

    God Bless my emoticon

    Enjoyed reading your list of November thanks and was happy to see that Beth is with you. Say hi for me! I still think of her and her ministry in Tuebingen quite often. Actually drove through there in October on my way to a retreat in Switzerland.

    Have a blessed Advent season,

    Hi Carole! Thanks for commenting on my blog. Nice to see you again, too. I have come and gone so any times since 2008! I really do plan to stick around this time.
