Weight loss goal for 2015: Keep losing weight!
Fitness goal: I want to be able to go hiking for the day. At the moment my knees are still not happy with my weight and prevent me from going on much longer than 3/4-hour hikes. But little by little, I believe I'll get there!
*WEIGHT LOSS Eat small quantities (WLS in November 2014) 6 times a day.
*FITNESS 1 or 2 hikes/walks every weekend (3 to 7 hours in total, with a photo blog for the fun and to keep myself accountable) and walks or stationary bike twice a week depending on the weather.
I am French and live just outside Paris. I am 6ft (no, French women aren't all 'petite'!). I love to travel and I have a passion for jazz (Cool West Coast).
Thank you so much for the support I receive here from Sparkpeople and my Sparkfriends! It is helping me make my way towards a lighter life, body and mind...
Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my Normandy blog. Yes, in America all military operations of that kind are called “invasions.” My Dad’s diary reports the “invasions” of Sicily, Anzio and Southern France. The newspaper articles he saved refer to them in the same way.
My Spark blogs are always a short summary of our trips. I record much more on my website including the memorable views of the rows of graves that you describe. http://www.brigs.us/Europe-Apr-2015/inde x-American-Cemetery.htm
The photo in the blog is the one I took for the sister of the man buried there. She’s over 90 and in a nursing home here in town. The story of our town’s participation in D-Day is told in “The Bedford Boys” by Alex Kershaw.
My website includes more detail of our trip. http://www.brigs.us/Europe-Apr-2015/inde x-Normandy.htm and also the other locations in France and the Czech Republic that we visited. http://www.brigs.us/Europe-Apr-2015/inde x.htm
Thank you for the spelling correction. You can tell that neither DH nor I ever studied French.
