June 2, 2020

I'm getting ready for the 2020 Summer 5% Challenge. This in-between time will be "challenging" as well, since my community fitness center is still closed due to Covid 19. My husband and I will be traveling north to our family farm, so the transition always presents its own unique changes and challenges to both exercise and diet.

I'm up-dating my exercise program in the fields below.




Member Since: 1/21/2013

Fitness Minutes: 54,772

My Goals:
I want to stay healthy, mobile, and lean for the rest of my life.
I'd like to follow "The Younger Next Year" advice including 60 minutes of exercise 6 days a week for the rest of my life.
Return to the healthy weight I maintained in my 40s, now that I've hit my 60s.
Continue to run/walk, and exercise with intensity.


My Program:
June 2, 2020 Update:
Exercise has to be my priority.
1. Jog outdoors 3 days a week for 30 minutes.
2. Walk outdoors on all non-jogging days for at least 10 minutes.
3. Work in the yard or fields when I get to the farm.
4. Use Essentrics videos daily for the duration of the "social distancing."
5. Monitor my fitness levels using heart rate.

Nutrition Goals:
1. Make a conscious effort to increase water intake. Eight glasses is hard for me.
2. Reduce alcohol consumption.
3. Monitor trigger foods closely, follow Low fodmap guidelines.
4. Eat a Mediterranean diet as much as possible.

Accountability Goals:
1. Weigh-in weekly, Saturdays for 2020 Summer 5% Challenge Community.
2. Post exercise, LTGL goals every day.




Personal Information:
My DH and I are retired. Both of us were reared on family farms, so we love open space and quiet whenever possible. We are able to travel between those two farms, as well as to winter in the Southwest for health reasons.


Other Information:
I love baking, cooking, and eating. So aside from a sweet tooth, I cook from scratch and have a relatively healthful diet. I enjoy sewing, knitting, reading, and gardening when on the farm. As a person on faith, I believe it's important to care for ourselves, others, and our planet.
