1/10/21 I still love everything I chose below! "The name we give to something, shapes our attitude to it." ~ Katherine Patterson Thus -- Happy Fitness Chick! Well, it's the DIRECTION I want to be aiming for anyway! Sedentary is always calling my name, so I need to do all I can to fight it, fight it, fight it... Hi! I'm Susy! Wow! One of my 20 year dreams recently came true: Once DH retired and we sold our house (Nov 2011), we became RVing vagabonds 3/28/12. (Sure didn't plan on the fuel prices of today though. Yikes) Okay, a little about me: I love health! I enjoy learning. (The harder part is the implementation part. LOL) I'm an ACE-certified personal trainer since December 2010. And also an ACE-certified Health Coach as of May 2013! Loving it! I've worked for various gyms since 2000. Mostly it's been Curves Fitness for Women, but I also worked at Snap Fitness for a time, as well as a privately owned fitness center. I definitely MISS not working for a gym!!! One thing is a bit ironic though: As I'm aging, I'm developing some severe ankle issues and can't do all that I used to do. Yowza! But... since I can't fight it, I'm just trying to figure out what I CAN do. (But I sure miss old-fashioned cardio!) Below are quotes that I've run across and liked. If you like any of them, copy and paste! We need all the motivating support we can find! = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = THIS I BELIEVE: **#1 (VITAL): Get control of your thoughts to get where you need to go. **Eat as nutritiously as you can. **Eat more LIVING food than dead food. (Harvey Diamond) **A body at rest is dying. **Be a body-in-ACTION. **6/24/11---To me, the more you can immerse yourself in the fitness and health lifestyle---including surrounding yourself with like-minded people---the more likely you'll be successful. That's my intention! 05/21/13 --- I still feel the same way! 1/10/21 Yes! = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = To Change One's Life: 1. Start immediately. 2. Do it flamboyantly. 3. No exceptions. ~ William James "Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you're ready or not, to put it into action." ~ Napoleon Hill "The choices I make dictate the life I live." ~ Author? "Convince Yourself to Achieve and You Will Find a Way." ~ Ralph Marston "Never underestimate your power to change yourself." ~ H. Jackson Brown Jr. "I never regret it when I do it, but I always regret it when I don't." ~ ??? " 'Tis nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so." ~ Shakespeare "Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein." ~ H. Jackson Brown "You are your choices." ~ Seneca "First you fuel your desire, then your desire fuels you." ~Napoleon Hill Message to myself: "Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great." ~ Orison Swett Marden The healthy life: Its not just about losing the weight; its about losing the lifestyle and mindset that got you there. ~ Dr. Steve Maraboli = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = My Favorite Color: Orange! --This color of luxury and pleasure appeals to the flamboyant and fun-loving person who likes a lively social round. --Orange is the color of youth, strength, fearlessness, curiosity and restlessness.

    Suzy, you might get a better view of the tall ships in Duluth. They will be in port there or at least that's where they usually come in. The lift bridge is one of few and fun to watch as well as go over. Lots to see and do in the area. Our son went to college in Duluth so have been up there several times. Lots of big hills when off I-35. Two Harbors to Grand Marias is a beautiful drive. Strawberry Falls is fun to hike but no place to park the camper. So would need to do that when it's parked. The GlenSean Mansion tour and grounds are another place to go in Duluth. Quite historical. Enjoy!! Are you going to the RGV this winter again? If so, we can get together with Sharon and Norm and also PJ and Frank. Hoping it would be a choice for you. Have a great time house sitting!!
