I am over 60, and I care more about feeling good than size or weight. After being on a diet for most of my life with predictable roller coaster results, I now focus on self-love, acceptance, and care. Being active and eating good food gives me energy and increases my enjoyment of life -- plus stopping the things that used to hurt. There's too much I want to do to waste my time being sick and tired!

My Goals:
1. Dance
2. Play games
3. Cook a nice meal for my family without my back aching

My Program:
Summer 2015 5% Challenge

I work as a walking tour guide, so my daily step count is high. For intentional exercise I want to strengthen my knees, ankles, and core, and to improve my balance.
Tour days -- 30 minutes of strength/balance work, 15 minutes of no-impact cardio
Non-tour days -- the reverse
More of either is OK

Hey, I live in New Orleans. I don't do boring food, okay?
I am gluten-free and dairy selective (no whey). I only eat sweets if it's worth it. I buy as much local produce and seafood as I can, and I limit meat to 4-5 meals a week. Rather than focusing on numbers like calories and grams, I pay attention to my hunger/satiety signals and how I feel after eating different foods (immediately, in an hour or two, and the next day). I cook most of my own meals, starting with whole or minimally processed food, and when I go out, I ask a lot of questions.

Personal Information:
I just moved back to NO after being away for 40 years. I never knew home could feel so good!

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.

    Have Yourself a
    Merry Little Christmas

    Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    Let your heart be light
    From now on
    our troubles will be out of sight
    Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    Make the Yule-tide gay
    From now on
    our troubles will be miles away

    Here were are as in olden days
    happy golden days of yore
    Faithful friends who are dear to us
    gather near to us once more

    Through the years we all will be together
    If the Fates allow
    Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
    And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

    Hi Martha,

    I have added you as a friend, since we won't have the Circle team to connect us any more! I hope it's alright if I drop in on your page every now and again?

    I read, too. I teach high school English, and reading is my life. Have you ever read A Confederacy of Dunces? It's set in New Orleans, and it's a hoot and a half! The author died young, and only wrote one novel, but he made it a good one.

    I think Bev, Gill, Maribeth and I will be keeping in touch, and I'm not sure about Lana. I've friended her, anyway. We shall see. Too bad Nyla has moved on, since we all enjoyed the team, but she has her own path to take, and I hope she finds what she is looking for.

    Have a great day, and enjoy the holidays!

    Thanks for catching the misspelling error on my comment. What a difference one little "r" can make! You have a good eye for detail. emoticon
