Hi, My name is DJ. I have a wonderful husband of 36 years. We have 3 really cool adult kids, a lovely daughter-in-law, and 3 energetic grandkids.

I started on spark people somewhere around 2012. It has been a wonderful journey to better health and happy life. The tools are amazing especially all for free. Thank you, SparkPeople!

My exercises are focused on a stationary bike, YouTube workouts for strength training, and stretching tape called Callanetics from the '80s. I also have started an app called "just 6 weeks" that includes sit-ups, push-ups, planks, dips, & squats.I struggle with consistency but love feeling great. I try to add fun activities like Hula hooping, walking, line dancing, Zumba, belly dancing, mini trampoline, swimming, yoga and anything else that is fun. I still am not consistent as I would like to be, but I am learning how important it is to take care of myself.

By the way, I am from Northwest, Florida. I love the beach, paddle boarding, water skiing, and boating during the summer. Winter is a little harder but love walk & swimming at a local pool.

LOL. So many things to do and not enough time to do it all.

My Goals:
-To have fun and enjoy myself while leading the healthiest life I can.
-To have fun being active and eat nutritious food.
-Enjoy the people in my life.
-Take time to just appreciate life.

My Program:
Exercise is my pivot point. Everything goes well if I exercise. Trouble is I am not an exercise lover. Although I am TRYING TO LEARN to really enjoy it and the results. Everything is so much easier when I am fit. Working on getting muscle back. Not easy, but so worth it.

Personal Information:
Really enjoy the hula hoop. There is a new spark team that just started "hula hoop for fun and fitness". Small but very active. Come join us:

    Congratulations on becoming the Leader of the Hoola Hoop Team. I hope to buy one when I am next in Canada. I used to hoola-hoop a lot when I was a child and want to give this a try once again. Every little bit counts! If I get one, I will look up the team. Hugs. Lise

    Do you want a new type of exercising. Try hula hooping. Weather you waist hoop or dance with off body hoop tricks, it is a fun, full body workout. It is low impact, encourages flexibility, strengthens core, so much more, and it is fun. You can hoop on your waist or dance with off body tricks to strengthen arms. Come visit our Hula Hoop for Fun & Fitness team here on Spark People. We are starting a new healthy habits (Summer Prep) challenge on May 28, 2018. Come by and check us out.
