By learning to eat healthier, hopefully I will be healthier, and reap some of the rewards by accomplishing that. I love walking and biking.

Member Since: 5/3/2013

SparkPoints: 67,387

Fitness Minutes: 33,468

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!!

"There is INSIDE of you
ALL of the potential
To be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY
To do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step
Towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Barb,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Motivated, Change IS Coming,

Jes

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe

"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine."

So, here is some emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon to brighten your day and mine! Have a Terrific Tuesday! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
