I'm a retired CPA and want to be healthy for my 2 active grandsons. They are a big piece of my life now so I need to be able to keep up. I'm striving for routines and habits that are sustainable over the long run. I actually started with SP in May, 2010, but under a different user. I've been taking part in the 5% Challenges, currently the 2020 Spring Challenge, and they are great. Even if I don't reach the loss goal, I still stay motivated to keep trying.

Member Since: 11/20/2014

Fitness Minutes: 151,174

My Goals:
UPDATE March 2020
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2020 Spring 5% Challenge
I will track my food daily eating in the calorie range of 1200-1500 calories
I will do 30 minutes of strength exercise daily, alternating core and upper body
I will do the exercise bike/treadmill 30 minutes, 4-5 times a week
I will drink 8-9 glasses of water daily
I will walk 2 miles minimum, daily

My Program:
My program is to do the exercise bike/treadmill 4/5 times a week and walk 2 miles minimum every day. I do strength exercises every day, alternating the major muscles. I will stick to my food plans of 1200-1500 calories which do not include ultra-processed food.

Personal Information:
I just moved to the same town as my daughter's family because they are a big part of my life. (They’re the boys in my banner picture, trying out their new soccer equipment a couple falls ago). I am a dyed-in-the-wool cat lover.

Reading and playing the piano are my favorite pastimes with computer games right behind them. Trivia bit: I used to sing opera at various recitals. I’m also a Navy vet (Vietnam).

Walking is always my go-to physical activity. I don't have access at my apartment building to fitness equipment so I walk the halls a lot and do have hand weights. Since I don't have a car anymore, there’s a lot of walking to the store.

    emoticon The average American watches 5 hours of tv a day. I read that if we each just volunteered five hours a week to work as a volunteer, we wouldn't have any issues; street could be cleaned, children tutored, etc.
    On the OCD Cleaners show in England that showed volunteers cleaning a nasty underground tunnel below a street and cleaning of a park (lots of nasty people not cleaning up after their dogs), etc.

    I do think these people in jails could be put to work, since they are there doing nothing.

    Sue, just wanted to let you know that I loved your comment on ONEKIDSMOM's (Barb's) blog about the recently bandied-about idea of sacrificing the "expensive" elderly population for the sake of the young. I was moved by your desire to live for the sake of your loved ones. My sentiments exactly! Lovingly helping and supporting those closest to us is the most important thing most of us will ever do, as love and goodwill radiate outward, much farther than we can fathom.

    Take care, and stay well.

    *I like the title 'dustman' to 'garbage man'. Yes, I confess I had to look it up*

    Have you not heard of the cockney song " My Old Man's a dustman"?

    *in a cockney accent*

    " 'ave a larf luv "

    Absolutely those whose hands have rocked the cradle have contributed to society!

    Let's do our best to stay healthy so we can KEEP ON contributing! But I totally, at this point in my life, "get" my grandmother's words, "I don't want to be a burden on anyone."

    Problem: sometimes those who are most self-effacing are indeed contributing more than they acknowledge themselves!
