Rededicating my efforts to be STRONGER and LEANER in 2021.
I am very fortunate in my work, in my family, in my friends. Life is good and I want to live my healthiest and best life for many years to come.

"Know thyself, or at least keep renewing the acquaintance.”
— Robert Breault

My name is Diane. Proud Clover, Dragon, and Renegade.
I have 20 pounds to lose to feel good in my clothes; improve my muscle tone; and control my blood pressure and cholesterol.

My advice:

Stop surrounding yourself with people who don’t support you.
You’re the average of the five people
you spend the most time with. Choose wisely!

Attitudes of a Warrior
I am a warrior... I act in spite of fear.
I am a warrior... I am willing to do whatever it takes.
I am a warrior... I do everything at 100%.
I am a warrior... I am willing to do what's "hard."
I am a warrior... I act in spite of my mood.
I am a warrior... I am bigger than any obstacle.
I am a warrior... I succeed in spite of anything.
I am a warrior... I never give up!

With COVID19, I am not traveling for work Mon-Thur like I was before ... so that should make working out and eating right easier, right?

Personal Information:
I love the beach, fishing, & gardening. I'm married to my dear husband 33 years. And we enjoy volunteering as Sunday School teachers and VBS Leaders for our church.

We have a daughter, son-in-law, and cutest 9 year-old grandson ever ;-)
And love animals, too! One dog, Freddy; 2 cats: Marie and KC; and a very friendly turtle, Lucky.

I work as an IT Project Manager in a mostly sedentary job. Working good meal plans and exercise into the day are essential.

    Thanks my fellow Noble Grape, for the two workout ideas. The standing yoga routine is very nice .... and relaxing on many levels.

    As for the Piloxing... well I am afraid I may have to have an ambulance standing by the first few times I try that one. So I may hold off on that one for the moment.

    Soooo I may level off at hiking, biking and I do believe I will incorporate the standing yoga into my routine.

    Of course all my walker pals named Leslie are anxious to get going with our spring program.. Whew. Good thing I have a habit tracker.

    Best wishes in the Spring Challenge.
