Basic things about me: enjoy my family, walking with my dog, reading, movies, theatre, scrapbooking, dancing, rollerskating, riding my recumbent bike, visiting, volunteering at the public library, traveling, couponing.

Used to do a lot of soloist work at churches (wide vocal range, all styles - from Mozart to Gospel) and lots of stage and theatre work. Taking a big break - it is fun but exhausting.

Since my 'break' - got a 'little' lazy - need to crawl back out of the hole.

Member Since: 10/20/2009

Fitness Minutes: 12,615

My Goals:
3 new goals:
1) 15 minutes of house cleaning/organizing everyday
2) be happy everyday
3) eat veggies every day

I would like to lose 40 lbs, 30 lbs is probably more realistic - don't need to wear black fishnet stockings anymore or spandex...seriously with humor intermixed.
Would love to roller skate or ice skate again - questionable - oh well, can dream

My Program:
1. I enjoy walking with either my loving golden cocker spaniel, Penny; or my hubby, or one of my walking friends
2. I enjoy 'riding' my recumbent bike while I read, listen to a 'book on tape' or watch TV
3. I love to dance or exercise

Personal Information:
I live in San Diego, CA, been in CA since 1985. Grew up in Michigan, brrrr. Worked my way thru college. Taught for 15 years, 7 years as a special education teacher. Now retired from teaching. Two grown daughters

Other Information:
Formal vocal training, sang opera, switched to musical stage. Two favorite composers, Menottii (The Medium)and Andrew Lloyd Weber (Phantom of the Opera). Top 3 roles, Monica in "The Medium"; Mother Superior in "Sound of Music"; & Soprano Soloist for the "Messiah"...yup!

    Hey - good for you - sounds like you are starting to make some positive changes - well done! I know from experience that volunteering for something that is beneficial can leave you with a sense of achievement, as well as that "warm, fuzzy feeling!"
    Take care

    Hi Rusty, You must have special intution today. Thank you for the pedometer on my Sparkgoodies. I have been bummed out and hate to exercise. No wonder my wt hasn't changed. The podometer might be just the bees knees to get me moving. Thank you for your encouraging words. It was just what I needed. You never know how much you can mean to someone, do you? emoticon

    Hi Rusty,
    Nice hearing from you. I started the week out strong and petered out today. Stress eating. Feels good when you're doing it, not so much afterwards. Oh well, tomorrow is another day and I will get back on the horse and ride.
