I am a long-time Sparker. And I am a long time 5% Challenger! I have been a Determined Daisy for a long time.

2020 certainly isn't turning out like I expected. Thankfully, we did some BIG family vacations in 2019--DD1 did the Dopey at Disney World and we all went to see her do her first marathon. DD3 came home and went to a wedding with us--short visit but great. DD2 lived near enough to see her regularly. In August, we ALL took a Disney cruise to Alaska--and it was wonderful and a fitting way to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. I got to go to the Sweet Adelines International competition in New Orleans with my DD3 and sister. Then all the kids came home for Christmas--it was magic. Lots of traveling and new experiences and FUN! Then 2020 hit and everything is "new normal"....

So I am trying to adapt. One thing I am doing is working out. I missed a couple of days in Feb because I was sick--I thought it was "just" the flu but right now, who knows! I am more toned than I was -- I am in size 10 instead of 14. I am going to get back down to 155 and STAYING there or lower. I will try to do no sugar/cookies/baked goods,/candy but that IS really hard for me. It is also hard to have just a little bit--so I need to try "cold turkey".

I am RE-COMMITTING to my health and well being!!

My Goals:
to get back to 155--or even lower

to start the process of downsizing--so it won't be "do it in 2 months"

to look and feel much younger than my years!

to encourage my husband to keep running and add some other exercises.


My Program:
I gave up my Y membership since I won't go to the gym until it is safe so I have joined Get Healthy U TV and do a workout from that every day. I am also focused on getting 7K steps every day.

I am tracking my food and learning more about what to cook and how much! My "diet" is lots of veggies, protein and complex carbs!



Personal Information:
I live in NJ with my hubby of 41 years. I have 3 DDs.

I ran 2 5Ks in 2014--that was my goal and I met it! I did a 5K at Disney in Jan 2019--with DD1. Everyone else in my family has done a half marathon but I see no reason for ME to do that!!


Other Information:
My 3 DDs live in CA, upstate NY and Michigan--and all 3 are settled for the next while!. We are trying to decide where we will end up--NJ is NOT our retirement state.

    Lol, don't think for a minute I am tearing up the activity level. I walked yes, but it was a very slow pace, the knees won't do what the head and heart tell them to do at my age, not a matter of want to but what I can do. My body is not as elastic as it was at 18, facts!!!

    I do remember the story of the tortoise and the hare, so slow and steady worked when I learned it in Kindergarten and it will work for us today. emoticon emoticon

    Glad you are thinking about hte gym, once you get going and start seeing some results it becomes a habit, and if you don't go it feels like you went out of the house in the morning with just one sock on, weird kind of. emoticon
