I can't believe how long it is since I updated my page! Now a 75 yr old grandmother of 2 grandsons who are 8 years older than at the time I started here when I could barely keep up with them - they are old enough now to be kind if poor old granny is lagging behind! So a very energetic 14-yr old who shins up trees and does a lot of sport and a 10-yr old who would rather be doing artwork than tearing about are still ruling my life in the best possible way. Am happy to be more active now so that I can still find treats for them to do and keep up whilst they enjoy them. Rarely now do they turn round with hands on hips and shout: 'Granny!!! Are you coming?' because Granny is doing better after putting some serious work into Spark - HOORAH! I certainly need to be able to keep up with both of them for as long as possible and I feel that if I maintain better eating habits, work hard with the Scarlet Dragons AND make use of the group discipline and challenges - more regular ST and cardio - and also better portion control - I have hope of improving my life. Along the way, I would like to give support to a few other people too, if I can.



Member Since: 9/1/2009

Fitness Minutes: 146,796

My Goals:
I want to get my old energy and enthusiasm back - for myself and my health and for my family. My grandchilren are my greatest joy and I want to be able to run(!!!!) with them and see them grow and develop. My friends seem to acccept me for what I am but I would like to present them with a 'new me' - or rather ' the old me' - who doesn't give up before the evening is over.


My Program:
EXERCISE

"The road to hell is paved with couches." I MUST to get off mine on a regular basis and become consistent with exercise - Strength and Cardio every day along with stretches and Yoga for better muscles and flexibility are my aim.



Personal Information:
My name is Sonia and I live by the sea in Brighton, UK. I always wanted to live by the sea and an opportunity fell in my lap with ridiculous time frames but I just flurried around and got everything sorted. So- done and dusted and I love it here - as does my family and we have some really lovely family gatherings here in the green square where I live or on the beach with dogs and kids and freedom.


Other Information:
I enjoy DIY and have personally renovated a tiny stone cottage - bar gas and electricity - in a favourite family spot in Dorset which is giving great pleasure to myself and my sons and families. I am starting a textile course - always an interest of mine. I have also been able to do quite a lot of travelling for work - the Emirates - Hong Kong (3 blissful months) - Mexico and most European countries. I want to do more but my life is suspended at the moment until some family troubles stabilise.

    Can you believe we are on week 8 already, wishing you a very successful week.

    “Don't Just

    Don't just learn, experience.
    Don't just read, absorb.
    Don't just change, transform.
    Don't just relate, advocate.
    Don't just promise, prove.
    Don't just criticize, encourage.
    Don't just think, ponder.
    Don't just take, give.
    Don't just see, feel.
    Don’t just dream, do.
    Don't just hear, listen.
    Don't just talk, act.
    Don't just tell, show.
    Don't just exist, live.”
