I'm a retired CPA and want to be healthy for my 2 active grandsons. They are a big piece of my life now so I need to be able to keep up. 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 doing the 2021 Winter 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: 190,624

My Goals:
UPDATE January 2021
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2021 Winter 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 2 miles minimum, daily

My Program:
My program is to do the exercise bike/treadmill 4/5 times a week and walk 2 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 ultra-processed food.

Personal Information:
I just moved to the same town as my daughter's family because they are a big part of my life. (They’re the boys in my banner picture, trying out their new soccer equipment a couple falls ago). 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 don't have access at my apartment building to fitness equipment so I walk the halls a lot and do have hand weights. Since I don't have a car anymore, there’s a lot of walking to the store.

    Thank you for reading my blog about my dress code rebellion and sharing your story.
    So many comments describe pants under skirts that were removed once getting to class.
    Our campus covered 50 acres. I would have been putting pants on, off, on, off.
    It was easier to carry a wrap around skirt for the fewer and fewer "old guard."
    I wonder if challenged would have just pulled off my pant right there? We will never know.
    It’s hard to imagine now how many obstacles, great and small, that women faced and how we once just accepted it as “the way things were.”

    I've had the impression the BBC was a high bar.

    You've got to be kidding............they are so biased, and sarcastic (at times).

    There are two or three news reporters I could happily strangle. LOL

    Thank you for reading my blog “… not Donna Reed”
    Perfection as defined by others may not be possible, but we can all strive to become a more perfect version of ourselves. Yes, balance is our goal.
    Too strict and we quit. Too lax never ends well either.

    Thank you for the pedometer. This Fitbit is four years old and needs to be replaced! Have a great evening.
