I can't believe how long it is since I updated my page! Now a 76 yr old grandmother of 2 grandsons who are 8 years older than at the time I started here when I could barely keep up with them - they are old enough now to be kind if poor old granny is lagging behind! So a very energetic 14-yr old who shins up trees and does a lot of sport and a 10-yr old who would rather be doing artwork than tearing about are still ruling my life in the best possible way. Am happy to be more active now so that I can still find treats for them to do and keep up whilst they enjoy them. Rarely now do they turn round with hands on hips and shout: 'Granny!!! Are you coming?' because Granny is doing better after putting some serious work into Spark - HOORAH! I certainly need to be able to keep up with both of them for as long as possible and I feel that if I maintain better eating habits, work hard with the Scarlet Dragons AND make use of the group discipline and challenges - more regular ST and cardio - and also better portion control - I have hope of improving my life. Along the way, I would like to give support to a few other people too, if I can.



Member Since: 9/1/2009

Fitness Minutes: 149,469

My Goals:
I want to get my previous energy and enthusiasm back - for myself and my health and for my family. My grandchilren are my greatest joy and I want to be able to run(!!!!) with them and see them grow and develop. My friends seem to acccept me for what I am but I would like to present them with a 'new me' - or rather ' the old me' - who doesn't give up before the evening is over.


My Program:
EXERCISE

"The road to hell is paved with couches." I MUST to get off mine on a regular basis and become consistent with exercise - Strength and Cardio every day along with stretches and Yoga for better muscles and flexibility are my aim.



Personal Information:
My name is Sonia and I live by the sea in Brighton, UK. I always wanted to live by the sea and an opportunity fell in my lap with ridiculous time frames but I just flurried around and got everything sorted. So- done and dusted and I love it here - as does my family and we have some really lovely family gatherings here in the green square where I live or on the beach with dogs and kids and freedom.


Other Information:
I enjoy DIY and have personally renovated a tiny stone cottage - bar gas and electricity - in a favourite family spot in Dorset which is giving great pleasure to myself and my sons and families. I am starting a textile course - always an interest of mine. I have also been able to do quite a lot of travelling for work - the Emirates - Hong Kong (3 blissful months) - Mexico and most European countries. I want to do more but my life is suspended at the moment until some family troubles stabilise.
