Member Since: 5/3/2013

SparkPoints: 63,180

Fitness Minutes: 31,148

My Goals:
My goals are to lose 7 lbs., learn healthier eating, build walking to 10,000 steps a day, and overall, take better care of myself, as I have learned, that no one can do it for me!!

My Program:
Walking everyday, (slowly increasing), logging into SP everyday, eating required amounts daily, daily readings, rewarding myself if I do a "good" job, organize something in my life, whether big or small, personal, or otherwise.

Personal Information:
My name is Barb. I am 61, live alone, and have no children. I am, however, a foster grandma to 125 fifth graders. This is my very first year, & I have found it to be one of the best things to happen to me in a long, long time. I cannot tell you how much those kids have done for me. Compared to one year ago, my life has turned around completely.

Other Information:
I am from East Grand Forks, MN. I enjoy living here as we have all 4 seasons and I enjoy them all.
I enjoy walking, biking, being outdoors, flowers, reading, spending time with friends, volunteering, going to rummage sales & thrift stores, and I love football, and am an avid fan of MN VIKINGS!!

Hello, again. You are a really inspiring person. Thank you for sharing a part of yourself in your blogs. Are you still a grandma at the school? I sure hope so.....the book of footprints brought tears to my eyes.....I know it touched your heart in such an important way. I had one really good teacher in my life....he changed my life and the lives of those he taught. He's the reason I had the courage to feel worthy and know that I deserved to be in college with the other smart kids. I only wish I'd had a grandma like you to encourage, nuture, and love me when I was in elementary school.... those years could've been a whole different experience for me. emoticon
