02/24/12 - Two months in and things are going quite well - I am not perfect - and have, for the most part stopped worrying about whether I am perfect or not - one day at a time, one choice at a time!

12/28/13- Last year was pretty good - I followed my fitness routine perfectly for 8 months - this year's goal - follow it for 1 full year! I am motivated to do this right.

01/01/17-Well, 2016 was disastrous in terms of my health and fitness goals...but I know that I can do this...and I know how great it feels to be on track and healthy...time to get that back...there are no excuses!

06/09/19- I’m back again...took off almost all the weight 2 years ago, had surgery and put it almost all back on. Have relost 30 pounds but am finding myself sliding again. Need a kick in the butt to keep going!

04/09/20 - Have reset my goals and am having a great summer in working towards them. My total focus is to get healthy and strong both physically and mentally before work starts again. Lots of little goals along the way. I can do this!

Member Since: 7/26/2008

Fitness Minutes: 180,236

My Goals:
by March 15, 2021 I will weigh 140 pounds. To do this I will continue to walk no less than 10 000 steps/day (20000 steps/day in the summer), drink at least 8 cups of water and track all of my food. i will continue to eat every 2 to 3 hours with planned snacks.

My Program:
To meet my goals I am going to take baby steps. Small changes will lead to success!

Personal Information:
I am from Ontario (north of Toronto). I live in a beautiful, rural setting with my husband and am an empty-nester (which I hate!). I have two beautiful daughters ages 23 and 21, both away at school. I am a teacher and am currently released from my teaching duties to be the vice-president of our union local. It is rewarding work, but requires a lot of hours and can be very stressful.

Other Information:
Fitness goals: I really would like to be able to do a "real" push-up or ten! I am following the Gorilla app 100 push-ups program and seeing progress - when I started I could not even do a single modified push-up from my knees - yesterday I did 15!

    No problem about my name, I guess I said something because it happens all the time. One time I got checks saying Maria even though I typed it right. Its just more common and I should let it go! Lol

    We SAFFRON SISTERS will prevail. 3 days gone and 1 more day to get it right.

    Rest well tonight because Monday promises lots of hard work and guarantees lots of success in our goal to be as healthy as possible.



    Soaring higher and lighter,
