It's time....

...to get healthy! Just found out my father has Type 2 diabetes, and as we are "genetic doubles", I need to stop waffling and get in gear. I have a healthy diet already and sound nutritional principles, I just eat too much of that good stuff and am not active enough.

SparkPoints: 24,379

Fitness Minutes: 31,166

My Goals:
I want to slowly but surely get back to fitness. I want to keep up with my kids and husband right now, and be the Cool Grandma years from now.

My Program:
We've modified our eating to include smaller portions and more fruits and veggies. I'm drinking more water and encouraging everyone else to do this too. I try to do cardio (walking) at least six days a week, 30 minutes or more. I also am doing a beginning strength training program which I try to do five days a week.

Personal Information:
I am a native Oregonian, living right now in NSW, Australia. We're here for at least two more years while our two kids finish high school.
I love reading, travelling, history....and would love at some point to become involved in "living history" and historical clothing construction.

I did some planning on the Oregon trip last night. I'm going to Portland and then from there over to the coast. I'm 90% certain that the trip to Sacramento should be and will be shelved until they settle and the dust of emotional garbage settles. I fully expect her to be in the hospital after they unpack. That's a shame and there's nothing I can do about it.

Yep, a road trip is in my future and I'm going to have a blast! Fly over and ride shotgun why don't you....LOL

Thanks for stopping by...and I agree it is hard to change our ways. I have been unhealthy most of my life. Giving up bad habits 1 at a time. I am down to cigarettes and junk food. The junk food is getting easier because it is making me feel so much better, the cigarettes are the tough one. New quit day is 07/15...

Yes it is shameful! The all mighty $$$$ runs the industry - not true compassion. Now the vets are lobbying our state's legislatures to pass a bill making it impossible for people like myself who work for a living to use the low-cost vet clinic at the shelter. You talk about &*&(&(*&(&!!!!! If I can work my magic this is not going to happen.

A caring animal owner is overcome by grief and shouldn't be held hostage because of their godawful fees which are NOT regulated in this state. It's a punch in the pocket book after you get punched in the heart and gut. NO MORE VET CLINICS for this gal. Screw them!
