I defy traditional labels. Socially liberal, morally conservative, can't figure out how people can be cruel to one another. I love to get to know people who are not just like me. I'm a natural optimist, but sometimes get dragged down by a gene pool that tends toward depression. I wish the sun would shine all the time. I love OTHER PEOPLE'S dogs, but would say I'm a cat person. Big into sports, particularly soccer, track/cross country, football, college basketball and any Olympic event except boxing and such. I just might be addicted to coffee. I wish I were a better evangelist.


Member Since: 1/23/2013

Fitness Minutes: 198,206

My Goals:
I will be strong and fit enough to say YES to any physical activity I'm asked to participate in. Biking to MIL's house 50 miles away - YES! Running sprints with my soccer daughter- YES! Kayaking up the river to the next town - YES! Carrying 35 lbs of cat litter into the house - YES!

I will say NO only if I want to, not because I'm unable.

My Program:
Eat food for fuel. Expand my repertoire of healthy foods.

Exercise daily and vary activities - HIIT, running, walking, weights, kayaking, elliptical, yoga, pilates, WATP. I'm taking suggestions!

Make time for relaxation. Get 7-8 hours of sleep. Read something for fun every day.

Personal Information:
Live in NE Wisconsin which means cold winters and hot summers.

Married 32 years in 2020, and have two grown children, and one grandbaby.

Love to be active. Becoming more diligent about food choices so the midlife flabbies don't set in.

Favorite things: fireflies, bachelor buttons, goldfinches, baby feet, ethnic dances, foreign languages, windyman/airdancer, laughing until it hurts, rocks, marching bands, morning coffee, and many, many more!

    Oh, a P.A. would be a dream right now! Thank you very much for the goodie and good wishes. First spinal physio tomorrow... at least it won't entail planks and press-ups ;)

    Thank you for the suggestions on iced coffee!

    Yes, I like to use syrup when I cannot afford the flavored coffee grounds. However, this week, I could not even afford to buy syrup.

    My favorite syrups are made by Torani.

    How are you?

    Thanks so much for your kind words and the sports car! I'd much rather go to the doctor in that than an ambulance!

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
