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 2020 Fall 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: 178,504

My Goals:
UPDATE September 2020
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2020 Fall 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 comment on my blogs
    I was feeling a little down reimagining the holidays in our new normal.
    Then breaking my glasses and wearing an old prescription pair has reduced my online sparking time, but putting my feelings into words really did help.

    New glasses will be ready next week. Now I know why the Walmart lady was being so helpful. Today our Board of Supervisors is voting on a resolution to require NON MASKED people to be admitted to public areas. I feel like I am living in crazyland.

    All we can do is focus on health and safety, encourage others to do the same and hope for better times in 2021.

    There has to be hope for 2021. It may begin the same way 2020 ends. We have to have hope there will be positive change along the way. My hope is in the future. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for letting me know about the Minion special. The Minions are a special group and appeal to my sense of nonsense (sarcastic) humor. The DVR is set and ready to go.
