I am 56 years old and I have now been living in Sweden for almost 6 years.
As a New England native I can't say the cold bothers me but it is very dark here and that can be depressing. This spring I started eating healthy and exercising daily and continued through the summer - until I broke my ankle at the end of July. I could not exercise and needed to eat to support healing so I gained back some of the weight and then my Dad died and my little dog got sick and had to be euthanized so I was really thrown for a loop.
BUT - Now I am back on track, eating healthy, paying attention to my nutrients and exercising daily and it feels really good.
What I want most is to feel strong, flexible and healthy and maintain a healthy lifestyle - forever.

My Goals:
To be healthy and strong.
To increase my flexibility.
To feel comfortable with my appearance.
To keep depression away or at least manageable without medication.
To have fun along the way!


My Program:
I tend towards high volume, low fat and I try to be very conscious of getting the nutrients that my body needs to be strong and healthy.
I do both cardio and ST. I am currently using FitnessBlender.com for my workouts because it is free and they have so many different workouts to choose from.

Originally from MA. grew up in NH. Moved to Stockholm Sweden in 2011


Other Information:
I love my family, books, baseball (Red Sox - does any other team really matter?) and travel.

    Hello, Marcia from So. IL. I am on Tangerine Tiger Team. I have done the winter challenge and now I'm doing the spring challenge. I'm joining the summer challenge they are helping me keep pushing forward. I have loss 60 pounds and want to lose 60 more by the end of the year. But right now I'm bouncing lose / gain. I really enjoy this team. I hope you enjoy being a part of a roaring great team. Give a yell if you need anything.

    Thank you so much for your message. I think one of the big adjustments of moving to a new place (especially a different country or region) is to 'get over' the novelty of the unique and delicious foods. :) I don't even want to know how many bags of candy, bread dumplings and fried cheese sandwiches I've eaten since I've been here.

    Enjoy Sweden and good luck on your journey.
