Central Oregon hike
Twin Bridge hike
July 2013 at Moraine Lake
REALLY excited about Spark and my Spark teams. I'm in my mid 60s and retired. Working out and eating healthy are challenges for me sometimes. I LOVE hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing, snow shoes, and kayaking. I want to get more fit to enjoy these activities with my friends, and to have more energy to enjoy my retirement! For 2017, I want to continue to lose weight, build strength and increase fitness, and make new friends and have adventures. I also want to reduce my cholesterol level, and reduce blood sugar. I am adding a fitness tracker and step goals for 2017, and I am logging my food in a journal.
My goals are to increase strength and fitness, lose weight, and have more energy.
A big goal for me is to stay positive and upbeat, and to not be negative toward myself or others.
My strategies for success are:
Exercise every day for at least 10 minutes
Exercise 200 minutes total per week
Drink 8 glasses of water daily
Eat 5 fruits and vegetables daily
Reduce alcohol and sugar intake
I live in Central Oregon (the dry side of the state!)
I love to travel, and look forward to lots of adventures!

Glad you liked my blog...thanks for stopping by and commenting on it. I will keep all posted on how the serrapeptase is working as time goes on. It does lots of good things, so time will tell. I think it is worth trying, if you feel so inclined. Have not had any side effects from it at all.
Have an awesome day. Sure enjoyed your vacation blogs! You are so lucky to be able to travel like that!!

We just found out we can order Tumeric and Ginger by the pound on Amazon, and will be ordering it. Not sure yet if any local healthfood stores do yet. But, tired of paying $4-5 per ounce at the grocery store, when you can pay $10. or less per pound on Amazon! We found a youtube video called TURMERIC & GINGER MILK ELIXER | ANTI-INFLAMMATORY & BEAUTIFYING which looks really good. Here is the link, but if copy and paste doesn't work you can look it up by the above name. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzKwiGFgWI
The more we look up the serrapeptase the more we are excited about using it! It really seems to help tons of people out there. Will keep you posted by blog. I have put up some blogs not to long ago about what has worked for me to lose 97 pounds & have gotten healthier, one of which is going gluten free. That also helps get rid of pain and it did for me!
Glad you are feeling a bit better. Sometimes those OTC meds can have more side effects. I take an RX inhaler called QVAR and although as any med it has side effects (like oral thrush was a problem with me before-this one is better)...but, no pain from it as far as I know. I have arthritis and fibromyalgia, but all my issues with it has been cut by 75% so far with all that I have done with supplements I take (which I talked about in those blogs-if you're interested). Have a good Sunday! Good to hear from you.
