Hi! I am a 51-year old with a wonderful spouse. Both my spouse and I have our parents living in town for a couple of years now. The 20 years prior we were taking turns visiting our parents on the holidays: Florida, then Indiana, then Florida and so on. I want stay healthy and active and be able to live mindfully.
10/21 Plan: chair yoga Tues, Sat.
7/12/2020 Still doing ZOOM chair least 5 times a week.

6/30 For safety's sake, back to ZOOM chair yoga
6/23 and 6/25 attend public yoga at rec center (w/ masks)
6/13/2020 Still doing chair yoga... yay!
5/22/2020 Three of us are still doing chair yoga...4 to 6 times a week. Yay for us during "Stay Home Stay Safe".

3/31/2020 Some family members and friends and I started doing yoga "together" virtually on FaceTime when self-distancing started. Today will be a first try doing chair yoga with Zoom.

1/15/2020 Start 5% challenge last Saturday

I grabbed the following quote from a fellow SP member's page. I need to hear this message loud and strong.

โ€œDon't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.โ€

... and this piece of information -- especially for my 2020 Winter 5% Challenge Team members: I lost my 48-year old brother this past April (2019) to suicide. It still shocking and still hurts.

Checking back in... the first anniversary of my brother's death is coming up this month. We sure miss him.

    Hey Angie, hope you are doing well. Have you been working on your harp music? I'm doing great though I gained a few pounds at Easter but I've already lost it. Trying to get more exercise and water in but I'm not hitting my goals. Have a fantastic day

    emoticon emoticon Pleasant Tuesday!

    Drive away from the drive-thru. When you're at the bank, pharmacy, or fast food joint, park and run inside to complete your errands. You'll get a fitness boost (and save gas, too).
