I'm a retired CPA and want to be healthy for my 2 active grandsons. They are a big piece of my life now so I need to be able to keep up. I'm striving for routines and habits that are sustainable over the long run. I actually started with SP in May, 2010, but under a different user. I've been taking part in the 5% Challenges, currently doing the 2021 Winter Challenge, and they are great. Even if I don't reach the loss goal, I still stay motivated to keep trying.

Member Since: 11/20/2014

Fitness Minutes: 185,104

My Goals:
UPDATE January 2021
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2021 Winter 5% Challenge
I will track my food daily eating in the calorie range of 1200-1500 calories
I will do 30 minutes of strength exercise daily, alternating core and upper body
I will do the exercise bike/treadmill 30 minutes, 4-5 times a week
I will drink 8-9 glasses of water daily
I will walk 2 miles minimum, daily

My Program:
My program is to do the exercise bike/treadmill 4/5 times a week and walk 2 miles minimum every day. I do strength exercises every day, alternating the major muscles. I will stick to my food plans of 1200-1500 calories which do not include ultra-processed food.

Personal Information:
I just moved to the same town as my daughter's family because they are a big part of my life. (They’re the boys in my banner picture, trying out their new soccer equipment a couple falls ago). I am a dyed-in-the-wool cat lover.

Reading and playing the piano are my favorite pastimes with computer games right behind them. Trivia bit: I used to sing opera at various recitals. I’m also a Navy vet (Vietnam).

Walking is always my go-to physical activity. I don't have access at my apartment building to fitness equipment so I walk the halls a lot and do have hand weights. Since I don't have a car anymore, there’s a lot of walking to the store.

    Thank you for your support and encouragement on my “Facing my Fear” blog.
    We can only grow and improve by getting out of our comfort zone and I did just that.

    I got my first smart phone -- in 2012, only recently replaced -- ONLY because one of my clients had a birding app which just filled me with awe and envy. Oh yeah, I just love 'em all!! Most especially the ones that include notes on behaviour and voice recordings . . .

    $25? WT..............
    I only pay £7.99 a month and can have unlimited number of deliveries, PLUS, that £7.99 ( what they call the delivery saver scheme) entitles me to be able see order dates a MONTH in advance of all other shoppers not in the scheme. I was well organised over Christmas and into 2021 as a result!

    No hay for the no no noo nnoooooooooo LOL
