I'm 57, married to a fun loving, caring man, mom to 5 happy(grown-up)kids, grandmother to 3 adorable boys, and a little grand-daughter. I use to be a nurse years ago, I loved working orthopedics and also as an assistant to a gastroenterologist. This past year I finally went through training to get my certifications to be a group fitness instructor, plus additional training as a Spin instructor. I hope to add a few more trainings to my resume soon - aqua fitness instructor, etc. I am currently teaching Spin and Abs & Arms classes & totally enjoying it!
Four years ago I couldn't have imagined myself being physically fit enough to be taking these classes let alone teaching them. Some good physicians, a supportive & encouraging family and SparkPeople helped me to achieve my goal of overall good health physically and mentally!

I was born & raised in Ohio, and have lived in Utah, California, Texas, New Hampshire, England, Venezuela, Switzerland, and now in Colorado - woohoo!

Other Information:
"If you say you can't - you won't. If you say you can - you will!"

Whenever I hear of a middle age man or woman struggling with losing weight, I encourage them to look at 3 things:
1.) Overall health conditions which might be playing a part, i.e.: hormones, thyroid, stress, etc.
2.)Set nutrition goals AND then track your food intake!
3.)Set exercise or physical activity goals, AND track these also
