I’ve been thinking about entering the blogging world for some time, so here we are. It’s my intention to share thoughts about healthy living, cooking (and recipes), exercise, and life in general. Who knows? Maybe there’ll even be an¬†instructional video or two.

A little about me: I’ll be 55 years old in April, 2016. I’ve been happily married for nearly 34 years, have three children, and three grandchildren. I’ve been a music teacher since 1977, a church musician since 1973, and a fitness enthusiast since losing 120 lbs. during the months between December, 1980, and July, 1982. At my heaviest, I weighed 300 lbs. Today, I weigh in between 163 and 166 lbs. and feel great. During the years since losing weight, I’ve learned a few things about food choices, managing cravings, eating habits, and meal preparation. I’m not a nutrition expert, nor am I a certified personal trainer or anything like that. But I am prepared to share what I know, and hope that you will find the information useful.

From time to time, I’ll be sharing thoughts about other topics as well. Feel free to join the discussion!
