My Program:
Walk, bike, strength training. Would love to get back to yoga, Pilates & spinning. Recently discovered jessicasmithtv.com & regularly follow her free exercise videos. Usually eat 3 meals & 2-3 snacks a day. Currently participating in 5% challenge.

Personal Information:
Currently live in Crystal Lake, IL with two remaining cats; we lost Tommy 2/8/14. Work p-t & volunteer at local library.
Until 2002 was vegetarian for 15 years; during & since Alaskan cruise I've added occasional fish. Beautiful daughter now currently in Telluride, CO & my loving son in Portland, OR.

Other Information:
Reading is my favorite pastime: novels, murder mysteries, biographies, The Spark....almost anything.
I'm working p-t, volunteering at library, hanging out with other friends (sounds like a teenager) doing fun activities: dinner/movie, concerts, Bingo, etc; would love to get back to playing ping pong.
I LOVE to cook--mostly vegetarian meals; & earned my Baker's Asst. Certificate in 2010, as I've ALWAYS loved to bake as well.

Hi, I'm also 5'3" and over 60. I, too, am exercising daily and watching my nutrition closely. I realized this year that my old WW training led me to slight protein and healthy fat, but now I need to devote calories to them. My focus on nutrition has paid off already in greatly improved lipid lab results.

I added you as a SparkFriend, I want to follow what you do next.
