over 60, grandma of 9, trying to overcome some health issues and figure out exactly what it is I'd like to be doing with my life!

I have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Graves' Disease, Restless Leg Syndrome, and chronic Insomnia. I had a complete replacement of my right hip joint in 2011; I now need a complete joint replacement of my right knee, which hopefully will happen within the next month or two. I also have anterior tibial tendonitis in my left foot, requiring me to wear a brace. All these things make exercise rather challenging sometimes, especially the last two!

Member Since: 10/12/2010

Fitness Minutes: 11,431

My Goals:
Goals? We don't need no stinking goals.... Oh wait, maybe we do! Having vague generalizations of what I'd like to happen isn't really working for me, so..

I am going to lose (eventually) 100 lbs. and get back to a healthy weight..

I am going to learn how to incorporate exercise into every day, even if it's only 10 minutes.

I am going to seriously get into this goal setting stuff, so that I can be more organized and productive.

My Program:

I have been tracking my food here since I started; it's been very helpful.

I am committing to doing at least 10 minutes on the Wii every day. unfortunately, with my current knee/foot issues, there are a lot of things I just can't do on the Wii right now, which makes me sad.

Personal Information:
Moved back to OH in December, 2012 after living in Florida for 14 years. It was those 9 grandchildren....

Other Information:
I love to read, mostly science fiction/fantasy. I love drumming, drum circles, nature, herding dogs, belly dance, historical reenacting, organic food, Mother Earth, being green, all kinds of music.

    Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog today. Yes, my DH's cucumber crop has been fantastic this year. The green beans and bell peppers not so good. I am learning all different ways to eat them. emoticon

    Border collies and Australian Shepherds... for that matter all the herding breeds... are such smart and active dogs. Bet they keep you on your toes. SWEDE_SU on Spark is a Border collie person, too.

    The next in line are the sporting dogs, like Carl and the various retrievers and setters, but the herding dogs area top of the line in intelligence, and therefore, challenge for their humans! If I wasn't sappy in love with Carl, an Australian shepherd was one of my alternatives.

    P.S. There's a Corgi family up the block that walk their pack by my house every so often!
