I've been slacking so far this year and the scale shows it. It is time to buckle down and get serious again about getting rid of this excess weight. I don't like how it feels or looks, time to do something about it!

Fitness Minutes: 65,223

My Goals:
My goals are to stay in my calorie range each day.

For the winter months, my goal will be to do 30-minutes cardio or strength daily, weights on M, W, F, and toning work T, TH, S. I will change this as the weather warms up outside.

My Program:
My calorie range is 1200-1550. I'm working on adding more veggies to the menu, fruits aren't hard to add.

Personal Information:
I'm a 14-year widow from North Dakota. I have two daughters, ages 39 and 27, and one 12-year-old grandson. I was an at-home medical transcriptionist for 21+ years and have been retired for the past 2 years. Some favorite crafts have been quilting and wood craft painting, but they seem to have been taken over by dancing since I've become single....and the dancing is a good aerobic workout besides! I'm really enjoying life these days and am so thankful for the good health I have and am now trying to make it better by lightening the load! Hopefully I'll be dancing for lots of years yet. I have a significant other who is also retired and we've been doing a lot of traveling the last couple of years.

Other Information:
I have a hard time sticking with things long-term including things that make me feel better, i.e., exercise and losing weight. So I am going to take the approach of making it through this one single day, each day, to reach my goals. And with God's help, and all you wonderful Sparkers, I will be successful!!
