    Thanks @Pupowl , I will!

    I'm late to the party @SavageMrsMoose :D just learning about the challenge, but I like the transformation structure for mind and body. 30 days makes it more approachable. Let us know if you try it too!

    Welcome @reshii_devi and @mikilana23!

    I’m Patrice, a 57 year old woman from the USA trying to get back in shape now that my sons are adults (ages 21 & 22) and they spend most of their time away at school. They live near their campus— one in South Carolina (Clemson University) and one in Massachusetts (Boston College).

    My husband and I live in Alexandria, Virginia, which is just south of Washington DC and about halfway between Clemson and Boston. We often visit Boston because that’s where we grew up and most of our extended family is still there. I miss the ocean but I spend a lot of time on nearby rivers pursuing my rowing hobby.

    In 2015, I signed up for a ‘learn-to-row’ program offered as a fundraiser for my son’s high school crew team. Since then, I’ve been rowing in the 8-person ‘sweep’ boats guided by a coxswain. During COVID, we needed to distance ourselves from one another, so many of us learned sculling. In the single scull, I use two smaller oars and have to steer the boat myself. I’m getting better but still need to improve my technique and strength for both rowing types.

    I also play soccer once a week in a co-Ed league and join my husband for a personal trainer session twice a week for 30 minutes. I’m relatively healthy but a recent bone density scan showed osteopenia so I’m trying to add more weight bearing exercises to my workouts.

    The nutrition side of the weigh loss equation is what I need to improve most. I’m just under 5’4” tall so I have to keep my calories within the proper range for my short height. Lately, I’ve been exceeding my daily target too often. My goal is to eat more natural food - especially fruit and vegetables - and increase my protein intake. I’d also like to improve my strength and flexibility.

    Best wishes in achieving your health goals!

    @Pupowl , Tinus always brightens my day. Ty so much for sharing him with us.

    In other news. I'm on the mend from my fall at work last Wednesday. I did see the chiropractor and it did help a lot believe it or not.

    Found the Habits Trackers, thanks! great tool <3
    Diet & Exercise Goals: ✔️✔️
    Water & Tea: 9 cups
    Met Daily 9,000 step goal
    Started reading Atomic Habits instead (30 pgs). From today's reading:
    "If you can get 1 percent better each day for one year, you'll end up thirty-seven times better by the time you're done. Conversely if you get 1 percent worse each day for one year, you'll decline nearly down to zero." Anyone start this year in the negative? ✋🏽

    I think you put your info in the wrong team tab for the habit tracker. At the bottom, you can see the team tabs. Here is a direct link to the Shape Shifter tab. Hope that helps!

    @Armygirlarmyof1 So glad you are feeling well and what a loss! fluid or no, it still must have felt good to see that. The path of tornadoes Friday was basically the path of our drive from Houston to Bloomington, Indiana, where my son is in school. We stop halfway in Little Rock. There was a deadly one about 30 minutes from Bloomington. He says there is another round of storms coming Tuesday?Wednesday. Fingers crossed that it doesn't happen. At least with a hurricane, Houston's favorite natural disaster, you get warning. Tornadoes are just so unpredictable.

    @Bumbinella Happy Birthday! Have a great day!

    @reshii_devi - I will be traveling quite a bit in the next two months so some days I'll be lucky to get in 1 workout, but if I can stay put in June I will try it!

    @Pupowl I think it's unanimous, Tinus is adorable. I think he is the Shape Shifter official mascot. I admire you very much for learning Norwegian. I myself find languages extremely difficult. Very impressive.

    @PatriceFitnessPal Somewhere back you mentioned you spent 2 weeks in Lilihammer for the Olympics. Maybe the end of the March thread? What an incredible and exciting experience. It must have been amazing. You probably know this, but there is a Netflix series about a gangster who goes into witness protection and goes to Lilihammer because he was obsessed with the Olympics there. It's silly, but funny.

    A quiet day for me. The ski hill is officially closed. We may run to town to get to a bank and the Home Depot - a 3 hour round trip drive. Hopefully the weather will hold. It's supposed to start snowing again tomorrow for a few days so I'll be stuck on the treadmill or peloton. I'm just too old to risk a fall. Hope everyone has a great day!
