TIME TO UPDATE

Yes, it has been a while since I updated this page! And I really want to change photos as I have many in my computer but always depend on daughter or daughter-in-law to help me with that. Maybe I will try it on my own.
Right now I am at weight that one weight loss company told me should be goal. But that is still overweight and I really want to lose 10 more lbs. to be where SP recommends.

I am very proud of the exercise I now get when in the beginning I could not walk for 5 minutes due to a bad knee and hip. Today I get as many as 130 minutes of exercise. Especially love the water aerobics, but also enjoy walking and the recumbent bike.
My husband of 56 years supports and encourages me all the time. And I have just started challenges which I enjoy even though I am not a competitive person. But they do keep me on my toes. During the 56 days of the 2010 Winter 5 % Challenge I hope to lose 10 lbs., a real challenge for me!

SparkPoints: 239,928

Fitness Minutes: 140,429

My Goals:
To Be Healthy and now to maintain my weight loss.
FAVORITE SAYINGS:
Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to

My Program:
The Nutrition Tracker is my constant buddy as I use it faithfully every day. With my bad knee I didn't think I could exercise much, but now am up to a 40-45 minute walk and 30 minutes of riding the recumbent bike. Losing weight has certainly helped!


Personal Information:
I live in the country outside Wake Forest, North Carolina with my husband of 58 years and where our son and wife are next door with our three grandchildren. We live on the second floor in their Carriage House just a few feet away. We have two more grandchildren who live in Columbus, Ohio. We have a daughter there and a son in Port Clinton, OH.

Other Information:
Much of our summer is spent on Lake Gaston while much of the winter we are in Frostproof, FL.

Don't Give It Up
Poet: Z. Vujcic, © 2007

Today life gave you another slap
but don't give it up
throwing your towel in the ring
for things gone wrong, for words that sting
'cos there must be another way
you will see it in the light of another day
When everything seems sour, not in your favour
look around until you find better flavour
so, don't just give but live it up
pick up the pieces, be tough
grind your teeth and turn another cheek
don't give it up, that's exactly what they seek
It's too easy to walk away
quitter never wins so you should better stay
look challenges straight in the eye
don't say yet the last good-bye
fight like an animal in a trap
but don't give it up

Thank you for commenting on my spark feed.. I agree, this has been going on too long now and rest is best. Following doctors orders. I found some old Denise Austin Yoga DVD's that I am going to try out for some stretching. Wishing you a Happy Weekend!

emoticon Hoping your Monday was a happy one. Today's quote for you by Confucius:

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.”

So, here's hoping you have a glorious week filled with rising above whatever challenges the week may bring you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
