Angie Johnson, February 2017 Walker of the MonthHavasu Health Walk Challenge
Angie Johnson is our walker for February.  She is 53 years young and has been married to her second husband for 5 years.  She has 3 children from her first marriage and 5 grandkids, with another one due in August.  Congratulations!!  She retired after 32 years in the executive office of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.  She has lived in Lake Havasu permanently for 2 ½ years but has considered herself a resident for over 20 years.
Angie initially began exercising to become healthier and now exercises for the pure joy she gets from accomplishing the smallest milestone.  She does some sort of exercise 6 days a week and rests on Sunday.

Angie jogs approximately 7 miles from her home and through Sara Park.  She has also joined Titan Gym, where she goes a few times a week, and Fitness by Marla’s boot camp, where she goes 6 days a week.  She also hikes several times a week, runs the ATV trails once a week and takes strolls down the channel during the evening with friends a few times a week.

She has no health issues other than being overweight, and exercise has helped alleviate that problem.  She remembers seeing a picture of herself and was astounded by her weight gain.  So she started walking in her neighborhood, and has since gone from a size 16 to a size 4.  Awesome!! She wants to call herself healthy, fit and active.  Plus, she didn’t want to grow old and feeble and unable to keep up with her grandkids.

Angie says to take one day at a time, and know you can do it.  You are in competition with no one but yourself; it just takes putting one foot in front of the other.  So just put one foot in front of the other and
"Get on Your Feet"
