I joined SparkPeople for guidance on how to get fit and maintain my weight on a reduced sodium diet. I was surprised to find so many valuable resources here. l'll be up to my neck in information for a while! I'm slowly wading my way through it, though, and having a good time of it. If you love to cook, you and I have lots in common and I really enjoy sharing recipes. I hope to make some great friends on SparkPeople!

Fitness Minutes: 201,536

My Goals:
My primary goal is to become physically fit. I've always had a somewhat sedentary job sitting at a computer and I've finally decided I need to get the proverbial "lead" out!
As a part of that goal, I want to learn more about healthy nutrition.

My Program:
I'm starting out with walking 30 minutes 3-5 days a week, sometimes with my husband who would also like to be more physically fit. I'm trying to incorporate a strength training regimen into my exercise schedule but I'm still trying to learn what would be the best choices for me. I'm logging the food I eat daily for the time being and I'm surprised to find my diet isn't quite as balanced as I thought it was. I have a lot of reading to do here!

Personal Information:
Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, I now live on the shores of Lake Erie, where the snow shovels are big and the boots are high. My husband and I have two crazy cats, which makes it difficult to travel. However, we've managed to visit 42 of the 50 states, Aruba, Puerto Rico, Europe and many trips to various Canadian provinces.

Other Information:
I love to read non-fiction and I read my Bible every morning. Other interests and hobbies include astronomy, photography, cooking and oil painting. I also enjoy volunteer work at the local zoo one day a week and I'm a member of the Humane Society.

    emoticon You're welcome for the laugh. Thanks for thanking me and all the LOL's you posted. Made myself laugh when the lines just popped in my head, so I posted them. When doing the Limericks, fun is what it should be all about. Take care.
