So. July was wonderful--summer at its best here in central BC. Lots of sun, rain pretty much as needed. I enjoyed gardening, visiting, lazing and sun tanning and welcomed Grandson #2 into the world.

Notice anything missing? Yeah. No regular exercise, very little Sparking : (

Weight, flexibility, core, endurance, strength got away from me. Like the local wildlife, I seem to have been packing on the pounds in preparation for a long, hard winter : ) As the saying goes, I'm summering well!

There are 10 weeks till my 67th birthday. New goal: lose 1.5 lb per week for each of those 10 weeks. Back to basics: start the day with a core/stretch routine; walk/run or swim daily; add some strength work; eat properly and track nutrition; Spark faithfully. It *should* be a snap : )

Yogahhhhhhh? I did 15 minutes of Sun Salutations first thing this morning. Well begun is half done, right?

    Like my dad used to say, "Half a loaf is better than no rest at all."

    I've found that both/either Tai Chi and/or Qi Gong can be embarrassingly challenging when it comes to developing flexible strength, too.

    You CAN do it!

    I just started doing some yoga this month, and I have really enjoyed it. My kids aren't too crazy about it, because it means I stay at the gym for another hour in the morning several times a week.
