Welcome to my Spark home

Welcome to my Spark page. I am 64 years old and a retired speciaI education teacher (non categorical preschool).
My husband and I have a 4 year old rescue beagle named Buster. He is a bundle of energy and makes us laugh. He has eerily similar traits that we saw in our last 2 rescue beagles. He's very sweet and lots of fun for us.
Our daughter, husband and her 3 children (my adorable grandchildren) live about 25 minutes from us. They also have an old rescue beagle. I am so ...

Our son is married to a great woman. They have his rescue beagle (see a pattern in our family?) and her two cats. They live about 25 minutes from us also (in the opposite direction!)
I joined Spark in December 2009 and, like everyone, life has thrown me some curves as well as blessed me in many ways! Although I struggle with consistency, my main struggle seems to always be with exercise. It seems I do fine for awhile and then I get off track. I always go back to the basics but it does get discouraging.
I'm trying to focus on being a healthy me with the energy to have fun with my family!

Thank you for the comment on my blog. This is time number 3 and I am determined to keep it off. But sometimes the stresses of life make it hard.

Thanks for the bloglove on my Missing Mama in Springtime post. I know that eventually missing mama will be one of my favorite things ... now it's a little to sharp an emotion - but I'd still rather miss her than forget her.

Hugs and flowers to you.

I’d like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. I know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! Can’t do it! But I am here to tell u I did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 I got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs. to gain it all back, but I’m back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. If u stay within ur calories that are allotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. I lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure I never went over. I barely exercised ...I am handicapped and I can’t do exercises in the conventional way but I flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. I did very minimal stuff. The idea was to keep moving and I did that. So I know with discipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. So I invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!

cut and paste link below if it doest work, please hit me up and I will email you ling.

Please join me on my new journey to begin again!!
