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!

Hi Beth. I track food in SP only. It transfers to fitibt when you sync. I'm still trying to figure out tracking exercise with fitbit versus SP. My fitbit tracks my steps. If I do workouts I track them in fitbit but don't mark calories. I track exercise in SP. I'm not sure if it duplicates calories burned?! Don't know if any of this info helped.

Grands are great! I have five; two boys and three girls. Ages range from 9 to 13 months. They are all so precious!

I had a close friend who lived in Marathon for many years so I have always been curious about the Keys. I'm not sure I would fit in there though. I am laid back but not so laid back I'm tipping over. LOL. I would love the sight seeing. Not sure I would want to live there though. Of course when I think about what's offered here I would probably be crazy not to move there. LOL.

If something happens to Benny I will remain single. LOL. I bet Benny has not left the toilet seat up twice in the last 20 years. LOL.

Love the name!! Your son can have a boy next time. Ian always wanted one of each and wanted them to be fraternal twins so it would be out of the way. LOL.

I wish I were going to Key West!! Sounds fun to me but a couple of days would not be enough.
