About Me

Retired USAF/FAA since 2000.
Why I Want To Get In Shape

I started 2.5 years ago. I weighed 233 pounds. I got down to 163, and am holding around there. I work out at gym 3X week, and also do Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and walk in Parvin Park.
My Inspirations

I was unable to do normal chores. Short of breath
Doctor said I would need oxygen
Pulmonary Rehab got me on the fitness path
I weigh now what I did in High School

Good morning - know that I am awake - I took a series of Tai Chi classes in my second time around in College later in life about six years ago - Master Chan - taught several variations of Tai Chi but what stuck with me after all these years the types Qigong - active or Dong Gong or Jing Hong - Tai Chi or other moving Qigong active for exercise - while passive Qigong the external body is still but the awareness heightened. Have a great day Karen
