~HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY~

By learning to eat healthier, hopefully I will be healthier, and reap some of the rewards by accomplishing that. I love walking and biking. I also enjoy the outdoors, volunteering, being with family and friends, reading, doing puzzles. I am just learning to enjoy these things again after a long period of doing none of these due to health, and circumstances in my life.

Fitness Minutes: 79,822

My Goals:
Since I've joined SP, I have been able to accomplish some of these goals that I have listed..I've lost 7 lbs., and am maintaining. I am eating so much healthier, eating some foods that I never thought I ever would. My exercise minutes has gone up, and I am really feeling so much healthier. (These were my goals when I joined SP.... 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 64, divorced, and have no children. I am, however, a foster grandma to 125 fifth graders. This is my fourth 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 a few years ago, my life has turned around completely-all for the best. Meeting & becoming friends here on SP has also made a HUGE difference in my life...I never thought it was possible to have so many caring, supportive friends. Some have become like "sisters" to me..

Other Information:
I am from East Grand Forks, MN. Even though it can be "bitterly" cold in the winter, I love living here and enjoy all 4 seasons!
I love to go biking, enjoy walking, working out, being outdoors, flowers, reading, spending time with friends, volunteering, going to rummage sales & thrift stores, and I love football, and hockey, and am an avid fan of MN VIKINGS & MN WILD!!
I also love to read Mysteries (James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, John Sanford just to name a few)

Chocolate makes everyone smile!
A piece of chocolate in the mouth is worth two on the plate.
Some like it hot - some like it cold. I like “it” to be chocolate.
Chocolate is to women what duct tape is to men - it fixes everything.
Love makes the world go round, but chocolate makes it worth the trip.
