Who am I?

Retired from full time work.

Did not have a weight problem until middle age. A very stressful job, long hours, lack of exercise and eating late in the evening caused me to gain unwanted pounds. This has affected my health and I need to loose about 70 pounds.

Did not have a weight problem until middle age. A very stressful job, long hours, lack of exercise and eating late in the evening caused me to gain unwanted pounds. This has affected my health and I need to loose about 70 pounds.

Since joining SP I am eating more balanced meals (carbs, fats and protein) including more vegetables and fruits. I log my nutrition and exercise regularly. I joined Meetup.com and now walk regularly (20 plus km per week). I have made positive changes but now need to concentrate on sticking to a specific calorie intake per day.

Hold Fast Your Dreams

Hold fast your dreams!
Within your heart
Keep one still, secret spot
Where dreams may go,
And, sheltered so,
May thrive and grow
Where doubt and fear are not.
O keep a place apart,
Within your heart,
For little dreams to go!

Louise Driscoll (1875-1957 / United States)

I am a naturalist and enjoy walks in natural areas observing birds, flowers and plants and anything having to do with nature. I volunteer for several nature related community groups: a naturalist club and a local conservation area.

Pray for the Naturalist:

May the sun bring you new energies by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away any worries you may have
and the breeze blow new strength into your being.
And then all the days of your life,
May you walk gently through the world
and know its beauty.

Thanks for your visits to my blog. By the way, I sold my cheap "Nordic" poles in a garage sale and a Dr. here bought them right away. She was planning a vacation trek in the mountains of Morocco and was glad for the poles. I do have another set of poles in the States if I want to use them in retirement.

Thanks for the tips and encouragement, Audrey! The PF has been slowly getting better since I got the new insoles. I do need to be more consistent with my stretching, though. Calf stretches, along with the foot itself, are supposed to help.

I had forgotten what a big deal Halloween is here!
