Granny Nogg is a mashup of two Terry Pratchett characters: Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax. Both are old hedge witches with alot of spunk. If you're curious about them, you can find them in the Discworld fantasy novels series. I'm choosing Disco as my theme for this challenge, because its the type of music I listen to when I'm working out. I've been a member of NF since October 2014. I'd taken a break for the last few months and this is my first challenge after my return. I'm working on the BBWW (Beginner Body Weight Workout), losing (and maintaining the loss of) that last 20 pounds and gaining KOPS status, keeping my business running like a well-oiled machine, and tracking my food. I'm a grandmother of 4, with two more grandbabies on the way this year. I've been happily married for 31 years. And I'm an entrepreneur, as an artist who makes keepsakes from fresh or dried flowers (from funerals, weddings, Mother's Day, etc. I take the flowers and make remembrance gifts from them, like beads for Pandora bracelets, ink pens, and candle holders). I'm also a member of the TOPS organization (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly). KOPS is the "maintenance" level at TOPS. KOPS is Keeping Off Pounds Sensibly, and is the status of your membership when you reach your goal weight. I'd been in the Assassins guild since I graduated from Rebel status last year, but being an old fart who struggles with the minis, I'm taking a step back from that intensity and just focusing on my basics, which are: Fitness: Do the BBWW 3x a week (preferably Tue/Thu/Sat) and track my steps daily with my FitBitLose 2 lbs this challenge, tracking the loss with TOPS. Their scale broke, so I'm tracking with my home scale.
