Anne's International Family Page

I have decorated my page to reflect our BLC 20 International theme. Our two sons both married women from other countries and had a double wedding in our home church. We had a pastor speaking both English and German, and also a guest preacher who was from Iceland, the home of one of our daughters-in-law. My husband's family immigrated from Germany in 1907 and homesteaded here where we live now. I have Native American heritage, so was descended from the first Americans. Our daughter is involved ...

Our daughter is involved with Native American studies and can read, write, and speak Nez Perce, the language of the tribe to which I belong, along with my children.

Fitness Minutes: 132,670

My Goals:
My goals for BLC 24 -- the next 12 weeks I hope to:
~~average 10,000 steps per day. Why? because it has been my best strategy over the years for maintaining weight and still eat enough to satisfy. :)
~~participate in all the BLC 24 challenges. Especially the TNT which has been my weak area. [no pun intended :) ] Why? because they are effective besides being fun.
~~meditate 15 minutes each morning using passage meditation. Why? being able to focus on what is important and not dwell on the unimportant relieves stress and increases love for others.
~~eat mindfully, considering nutrients first, overall balance second, and calorie count third, and keep track of every bite. Why? Eating mindfully means no mindless eating. Tracking means you don't conveniently forget what you ate.



My Program:
I am now in the maintenance phase of my healthy lifestyle. I am at the lowest weight I have ever been, so perhaps that might change over the winter months when I tend to gain. I will wait and see, but also be mindful of what I am eating and I will still have exercise a priority in my life.

Personal Information:
I live in rural Idaho and enjoy being outdoors (clean air!). I am married 45 years and our 3 adult children are also married with children. We have eight grandchildren who live in New York, California, and Germany, so we travel a bit.

Other Information:
I am a retired teacher. I enjoy reading, walking, and traveling. I am active in our church and currently am the church treasurer which is a busy job. I am just learning how to needlepoint, and think I will enjoy that.

I forgot to mention in the Den this morning that I really enjoy Melody Beattie's work! Haven't read anything of hers in awhile but she was instrumental in some life changes I went through many years ago.
