Decided it was time to update my profile after nearly five years. So I'm still plugging along. More downs than ups. My kids are now grown - S19; D20; S24 (in June). H and I are looking at being Empty Nesters. S24 lives at home but it's really a place to lay his head and have an occasional meal since he is working full time, has a girlfriend and a very active life. The younger to have finished the Freshman and Sophomore years at school and are only home on breaks or for D20 the occasional long weekend.

H and I are beginning to travel more and enjoyed a wonderful two week trip to Portugal with lots of walking and activity. We enjoy golf and skiing with or without the rest of the family.

I know consistency and moderation are the key to being healthy and these are the habits I am continuing to work on.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges.
