NOW is the Time!

My weight has been a life-long issue. I came into the world close to 10 lbs, and have never really been "thin". Many years ago I learned that exercise would help me tremendously, but it's easy to fall off the "wagon". I had surgery for 2 different types of cancer 24 months ago and came out of that with a new commitment to life. It's been a rocky road, but now is the time to make the changes to keep me healthy!

Now that I'm following the Spark lifestyle, I feel so much better and feel like my life has taken a turn for the better. The most important thing is that I feel in control of what's happening to me.

Fitness Minutes: 98,820

My Goals:
When I discovered SparkPeople (thanks Birdie!) I knew it was time to lose, so I set my first year's goal at 50 pounds. After just a few weeks I can see that this is realistic and my lifestyle really has changed.

My Program:
I'm doing strength training 3 days a week and love the exercises generated for me. On those days I'm doing at least 30 minutes of cardio as a warm-up. Then on the other 3 days I do 45-60 minutes of cardio. Sunday is a day of rest and reflection!

Personal Information:
After 35 years of teaching my husband and I retired to the beautiful mountains of western NC. When people ask where I live I tell them, "Head towards Heaven and just before you get to the pearly gates, turn right and there we are!"

Other Information:
I love to read and watch movies. My newest hobby is quilting. It's been fun to learn such a cool skill at my age!

Hi Carol,

I am excited about working at the library. This afternoon I had a chat with the director and talked her down to 30 hours. I just retired from a full time job a couple of months ago. Didn't really want another one. Right now I'm alphabetizing and straightening (as a volunteer). The board is going to let us know when I can go on the payroll. Supposed to be soon. So cool that you are a library volunteer, too! emoticon

I did it! Another friend posted about "thinking" about exercising and not getting it done and shamed me into getting outside and walking. It felt good and it is a beautiful day. emoticon
