I defy traditional labels. Socially liberal, morally conservative, can't figure out how people can be cruel to one another. I love to get to know people who are not just like me. I'm a natural optimist, but sometimes get dragged down by a gene pool that tends toward depression. I wish the sun would shine all the time. I love OTHER PEOPLE'S dogs, but would say I'm a cat person. Big into sports, particularly soccer, track/cross country, football, college basketball and any Olympic event except boxing and such. I just might be addicted to coffee. I wish I were a better evangelist.


Member Since: 1/23/2013

Fitness Minutes: 183,257

My Goals:
I will be strong and fit enough to say YES to any physical activity I'm asked to participate in. Biking to MIL's house 50 miles away - YES! Running sprints with my soccer daughter- YES! Kayaking up the river to the next town - YES! Carrying 35 lbs of cat litter into the house - YES!

I will say NO only if I want to, not because I'm unable.

My Program:
Eat food for fuel. Expand my repertoire of healthy foods.

Exercise daily and vary activities - HIIT, running, walking, weights, kayaking, elliptical, yoga, pilates, WATP. I'm taking suggestions!

Make time for relaxation. Get 7-8 hours of sleep. Read something for fun every day.

Personal Information:
Live in NE Wisconsin which means cold winters and hot summers.

Married 32 years in 2020, and have two grown children, and one grandbaby.

Love to be active. Becoming more diligent about food choices so the 50s flabbies don't set in.

Favorite things: fireflies, bachelor buttons, goldfinches, baby feet, ethnic dances, foreign languages, windyman/airdancer, laughing until it hurts, rocks, marching bands, morning coffee, and many, many more!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. Wasn't sure whether to write that but after losing my aunt I have encouraged everyone not to put things off. Thanks for the pun! emoticon

    thanks for visiting my blog. emoticon

    I thought that it would be too easy to cheat with the diet betting website also. However, after reading how you report, it seems people are being held accountable for what they post.

    To start, you send a picture of yourself wearing shorts and a tshirt standing on the scale and also a picture of the digital read out on the scale. include some periodic updates and final pictures. If they think that what you submitted is not correct, they will ask for additional pictures and/or require you to go someplace of their choosing (planet fitness, walgreens pharmacy, etc.) and get additional pictures, BMI measurements, etc.
