I'm a retired CPA and want to be healthy for my 2 active grandsons. They are a big piece of my life now so I need to be able to keep up. I'm striving for routines and habits that are sustainable over the long run. I actually started with SP in May, 2010, but under a different user. I've been taking part in the 5% Challenges, currently doing the 2020 Fall Challenge, and they are great. Even if I don't reach the loss goal, I still stay motivated to keep trying.

Member Since: 11/20/2014

Fitness Minutes: 175,264

My Goals:
UPDATE September 2020
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2020 Fall 5% Challenge
I will track my food daily eating in the calorie range of 1200-1500 calories
I will do 30 minutes of strength exercise daily, alternating core and upper body
I will do the exercise bike/treadmill 30 minutes, 4-5 times a week
I will drink 8-9 glasses of water daily
I will walk 2 miles minimum, daily

My Program:
My program is to do the exercise bike/treadmill 4/5 times a week and walk 2 miles minimum every day. I do strength exercises every day, alternating the major muscles. I will stick to my food plans of 1200-1500 calories which do not include ultra-processed food.

Personal Information:
I just moved to the same town as my daughter's family because they are a big part of my life. (They’re the boys in my banner picture, trying out their new soccer equipment a couple falls ago). I am a dyed-in-the-wool cat lover.

Reading and playing the piano are my favorite pastimes with computer games right behind them. Trivia bit: I used to sing opera at various recitals. I’m also a Navy vet (Vietnam).

Walking is always my go-to physical activity. I don't have access at my apartment building to fitness equipment so I walk the halls a lot and do have hand weights. Since I don't have a car anymore, there’s a lot of walking to the store.

    Yes: mask, wipes, gloves, a pocket size hand sanitizer, my pen clipped to my shirt with a pocket to hold my registration card and ID. Keys in my pants pocket. I think, I hope, I've got all my bases covered. If you think of something I've missed, please feel free to let me know.

    These are crazy times for sure. Now, in addition to all this, I have to pray for no snow or ice.

    Ugh! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for reading my blog.
    Reconnecting with Spark has made a positive difference in this very challenging year.
    If I hadn't returned I might be binge watching TV repeats right now while devouring a can of Pringles

    Can't understand why Sparkers have to be so spiteful. IMHO, blogs are like tv channels. If you don't like what you see, change the channel. Others may like what you don't. I seem to attract the food police. Oh, well. Life goes on...
