VDALE4's New Spark Web Page

This is 2015 and time for some new Goals, As I age, this year I turn 75, so I'm just trying to keep my body healthy, moving and full of energy.

Basically, I want to do 3 days of Strength exercise and 2 days of Carido. I have to walk at least 30 minutes a day on the treadmill. Walking my dog in a quick stride, about 2.5 or 3 speed. I ride my recumbent bicycle, for at least 15 minutes a day.

I really hate to be labeled and old person. I know I have some new wrinkles on ...
This is 2015 and time for some new Goals, As I age, this year I turn 75, so I'm just trying to keep my body healthy, moving and full of energy.

Basically, I want to do 3 days of Strength exercise and 2 days of Carido. I have to walk at least 30 minutes a day on the treadmill. Walking my dog in a quick stride, about 2.5 or 3 speed. I ride my recumbent bicycle, for at least 15 minutes a day.

I really hate to be labeled and old person. I know I have some new wrinkles on my face, and some grey hair, but I sure don't want to be slow in movement, like most old people. I know with time my body will slow down as I'm sure it will, but I will keep it moving and trying to be strong, as long as I can. When it does that I guess I will just have to put up with that label.

Thanks to all of you that send me encouragement. I wish you well and hope that you all reach your goals, that you have set for this year. I reliaze this years goals haven't changed much from last year.

Sparks always has some interesting suggestion and articles with different Helps and Aids. I love to follow their exercise plans that they offer.

If you are truly working the Sparks Program, I would love to have you as a friend and hear how you are doing on reaching your goals. I hope you will send me a note.

Thanks. Virginia
