I'm a retired CPA and want to be healthy for my 2 active grandsons. They are a big piece of my life now so I need to be able to keep up. I'm striving for routines and habits that are sustainable over the long run. I actually started with SP in May, 2010, but under a different user. I've been taking part in the 5% Challenges, currently doing the 2020 Fall Challenge, and they are great. Even if I don't reach the loss goal, I still stay motivated to keep trying.

Member Since: 11/20/2014

Fitness Minutes: 175,024

My Goals:
UPDATE September 2020
I will lose 10 lbs in 8 weeks by the end of 2020 Fall 5% Challenge
I will track my food daily eating in the calorie range of 1200-1500 calories
I will do 30 minutes of strength exercise daily, alternating core and upper body
I will do the exercise bike/treadmill 30 minutes, 4-5 times a week
I will drink 8-9 glasses of water daily
I will walk 2 miles minimum, daily

My Program:
My program is to do the exercise bike/treadmill 4/5 times a week and walk 2 miles minimum every day. I do strength exercises every day, alternating the major muscles. I will stick to my food plans of 1200-1500 calories which do not include ultra-processed food.

Personal Information:
I just moved to the same town as my daughter's family because they are a big part of my life. (They’re the boys in my banner picture, trying out their new soccer equipment a couple falls ago). I am a dyed-in-the-wool cat lover.

Reading and playing the piano are my favorite pastimes with computer games right behind them. Trivia bit: I used to sing opera at various recitals. I’m also a Navy vet (Vietnam).

Walking is always my go-to physical activity. I don't have access at my apartment building to fitness equipment so I walk the halls a lot and do have hand weights. Since I don't have a car anymore, there’s a lot of walking to the store.

    As I continue to explore Spark, I’m finding new information as well some that I had forgotten.
    All have value.

    I just said I'd rung back to thank the secretary for her help with the alternative number but was she aware of the " new arrangement" regarding patients making the appointments.

    RECEPTIONIST It's the norm.

    ME; well shame no one volunteered that information TWO WEEKS AGO. Perhaps you could ask Dr O'Donnell to make a point of mentioning that to patients. (meekly/ slightly sarcastically) it would save those patients a lot of stress and worry.

    RECEPTIONIST; Well he does know.

    ME; Pity he didn't think to mention it..........TWO WEEKS I've been hanging about in agony!!

    Finally got an apology and an assurance that she'd let him know.

    I tell you now Suz, I had better not encounter problems tomorrow!!!!!

    *At least you can send the message back to the doctor's office to change their approach.*
