I've gained some weight, but have now decided to shift my focus from the number on the scale to other aspects of my health.

Member Since: 9/28/2006

Fitness Minutes: 56,182

My Goals:
My goals relate to healthier living in general. This involves body, mind, and spirit.

My struggle has been to remain consistent. It seems that I set goals and make a plan, only to get sidetracked by my own emotions.

My Program:
Journal. Exercise. Drink the water. Participate on Spark People.

Personal Information:
My name is Marie and I live with my husband in a town in Alberta, Canada. No children. I'm 62 years old.

I worked as a clerk in a bank for 25 years, then as a part time bookkeeper.

My nature is to be introverted. (If you are aware of personality typing - MBTI INFJ / Enneagram 4

I need a lot of alone time to keep my batteries charged. On the other hand, I really enjoy having one-on-one conversations with people.

Other Information:
Hobbies & Interests

So many interests and hobbies and not enough time. Some of my hobbies are researching and organizing our family history, using photo editing software, scrapbooking, making jewellery, playing piano, drawing, reading, learning, cooking, and so on.

My favourite ways to keep active are walking, using weights, using our recumbent bike, and stretching. Old injuries to my back, hip, neck, etc., are requiring a lot of stretching these days.

My dear husband is retired, and he and I have the opportunity to spend time together, which is something I'm very grateful for. I never had any children, as I had endometriosis / luteal phase defect issues. This was a life situation that bothered me for a long time. It took decades for me to come to terms with it, but I think that I finally have and am now of the opinion that things worked out for the best.
