I retired in May and have been trying to get my life in some sort of order. I have been someone successful, although I am still not on a schedule like I want. So, my first goal will be to get organized and (continue) to declutter our house.

I finished a sprint triathlon yesterday (9/12/15) and want to do another one, although I have not found a close one for this fall. My desire is to do an Olympic length tri in the spring, but need lots more training before then. So, my second goal is to tackle more hills on my bike and run more.

I also need to track ALL my food, as this has been an on-going struggle for me.

Member Since: 2/11/2011

Fitness Minutes: 57,486

My Goals:
My goals for fall:

1) bike/swim/run (one or two of these a day) 6 days a week

2) track EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth!

3) Hike 2 times a month

4) spend more time with our grandchildren

5) spend more time with God

My Program:
After next week (taking a week off for my body to recover from the triathlon, although am doing the Wii and walking), I will swim/bike/run 2 days a week, more if I can work it in.

I will eat "clean", getting in the freggies that my body needs.

Personal Information:
I have been married 38 years, am mother of 3 WONDERFUL daughters, grandmother of 7 grandchildren (4 boys, 3 girls). I am a Nurse Practitioner who retired in May. I am starting a new job, 1 day a week, tomorrow.

Other Information:
I love to sew and quilt; I am hoping to reorganize my life to work on some unfinished projects, although I am not sure how that will happen. I love to read, but seem to only get time when I am sitting in a waiting room. I usually carry a book in the car "just in case".
