I'm still here in 2013!

I am also GETTO140 and am more active there. Check out more details there!

Member Since: 3/9/2005

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Exercise 3 - 5 days per week.
Burn 1500 calories per week.
Eat balanced, healthy, and nutritious small meals.
Reduce my blood pressure.
Reduce my cholesterol.
Maintain a healthy BMI

My Program:
- Track my nutrition daily.
- Track, my fitness daily.

Remember that food is fuel!

My typical meals are:

Breakfast - some kind of hot or cold cereal, 1/2 bagel with a little margarine (such as Smart Balance) and whipped cream cheese, coffee

Lunch - huge salad with turkey or chicken, 1 tbsp vinegar, 1 tsp olive oil, italian seasonings, and something else like a Kashi cookie, piece of fruit, or fat free chocolate pudding

Dinner - sometimes I use ideas from SparkRecipes to try something new. With so many resources available these days, it's easy to find something new to try!

Dessert - ummm...not a huge dessert eater after dinner but I log some snacks in as desserts.

Snacks I have- fresh fruit or fresh, raw veggies. Nuts (have to be careful though..I could eat the whole can!), peanut butter, and cheese, just to name a few.

My typical exercise:

Sparkpeople videos
YouTube video

Personal Information:
I am 55 and married with no children. We have two rescued greyhounds who we adopted from NGAP (National Greyhound Adoption Program) and one cat we adopted from a local animal shelter.

Other Information:
I enjoy traveling with my husband; cruising is our favorite type of vacation. We go as often as we can afford to.

Vegetable gardening is one of my favorite summer-time hobbies. I also play in a hand bell choir.

I'm on a local CART (count animal response team) and I volunteer at a local animal shelter.

    The first thing I see this morning on SP is a watering can goodie!!!! Right after I had returned from walking the dog on this SNOW covered morning. You have made my day!!!! Just the contrast is delighting me. Thanks so much for the thoughtfulness. I KNOW that spring is coming, just need to hold that thought!

    I also loved your page. I have a rescued lab and SPCA cat. And can hardly wait to plant our garden. The earliest we can put anything in the ground is May 1...and that's only the cold weather seeds...beets, peas. It is not usual for us to get a frost around Mother's Day!!! So we've a ways to go, buy we've seedlings under the lights...and we are preparing!

    Have a great day!
