Things you may not know about me.

Dougal's blog got me to thinking yesterday....Here are some things you may not know about me.

I was a single mother of 4
I majored in interior design in college
My family came from Ireland in the 1600's and settled in the Pennsylvania area and later Texas
I can play the flute
I have a charmed life...I have never had to deal with death or sickness in my family
I love to fish
I love Nascar
I was a cheerleader in high school
I was on the swim team

Leave me a comment with some things I don't know about you!

Hey Juli! The new shoes are great! They fit really well! Margaret/Lynda, thanks for the encouragement to walk. Dougal--here's a hug.

A couple of weeks ago, I was on the Red Carpet Ready site: Valerie Waters. She has trained quite a few celebs in her time. Anyway...I have her book--which is fabulous for women, BTW...

She had a little contest to enter for a "Body Assessment". She picked me! I am on her website--Lucky Number 13! Check it out, and see what she said about me.
I think she was right on with her recommendations. I will be implementing them starting today.

I try to be consistent with my workouts, but lately I have been fighting the Sleepy Monster. I just CANNOT get up before 6:00 anymore. So....the first thing I have to do is change my mind set...."I CAN get up at 5:45, no problem!" The next thing is to get to bed at 9:00 instead of wasting time staying up til 10. I need sleep. I have a lot of things to accomplish during the day and need the energy!

Things you may not know about me:

- I wear glasses at home, but wear contacts outside to look less nerdy.

- I'm more used to driving on the left side of the road rather on the right side of the road (as we do in the Philippines) since I spent a lot of time in Australia and the Bahamas, and I hardly drive in Manila (I take the bus).

Shari, I loved reading about you. And - congrats on being chosen for Red Carpet Ready. How cool is that?

A suggestion is to put a link to this post on your blog sidebar and call it "About Me" or something like that.

Thanks for sharing this with us! I know the RCR is going to fuel you and bring you results! You're a celebrity now!

3. I'm the only girl on one side of my family and one of three on the other.
