Fitness Minutes: 175,554

My Goals:
I want to trim up, I dont expect to look like I did 50 years ago, but, a little less flab, would be nice, I want to tone up, get muscle, and get more physically fit

My Program:
I have belonged to Sparks since January of 2009, and I am going to switch to a maintenance program, I would not mind losing a couple more pounds, but I sure do not want to gain, so from here on, I will try to maintain.

Personal Information:
My name is Mary, I live in California, and I am 68 years old, and finally met my weight goal, and along the way I have become a much healthier person, All to the good.
But I went on a cruise in August and gained back 3 pounds, so I am having a very hard time getting it off.

Other Information:
I am right now reading a book called "The Gurnsey, Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" it is great, short but great, my sister turned me onto it. Guernsey is a island betwen France and England, there are a group of them called the Channel Islands, and it was occupied by the Germans during the second World War, I am sure it is fiction, but great reading and gotta be based on facta.I love to read, almost anything, not much on watching television, but do enjoy a good movie, and the ones I get to see are on Television, I was raised on a small farm (acreage) in Iowa..

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!

For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV

There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!

Thank you Mary for leaving a comment on my gardening blog. It's so nice to meet others who enjoy getting a little dirt under their nails like me. If my body would allow me I would spend all day every day in the yard working on my gardens. I worked in a green house for a time when I was younger and it was my ideal job. Never was happier than when I worked there even though it almost cost me half a days pay just driving the distance to work.

Parrotlets, or 'pocket parrots' are great little parrots to have. They have all of the personality of their large cousins, but they are not noisy and disruptive. I love all parrots, but am especially fond of the parrotlets. They are cuddly, funny, sweet little birds packed with character. Many can be good talkers. Sadly, breeders have been more interested in breeding for interesting colors and less for robustness. When I got my first parrotlet, their life expectancy was 15 - 20 years. Now, it is reported to be more like 8-10. That is so sad to me.
