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!

Member Since: 4/2/2012

Fitness Minutes: 57,203

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

Fitness:
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

Nutrition:
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!
