One step and one day at a time

Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so ...
Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri.

Life has dealt me plenty of punches starting with my first surgery at the age of 5. At 9 I had a brain tumor removed that damaged my right optic nerve and destroyed my pituitary gland. As a result I'm legally blind in my right eye and have to take medicines for the rest of my life to make my body function normally. I've had multiple surgeries and broken bones over the years since then but I will not let anything stop me from becoming a better me physically and mentally.

I'm eating according the Fast Metabolism Diet. It's been a life saver for me. I finally found an eating plan that is helping me to shed unwanted pounds of fat from my body. Thanks to my virtual Spark Mom, FLORIDASUN, for blogging about how much success she had eating according to the Fast Metabolism Diet! If she had never blogged about her success I would have never tried it.

Summer 5% Challenge Commitment
Exercise:

I'm ABSOLUTELY delighted the FMD is working so well for you...it's amazing the weight you have lost and I'm THRILLED to know you are so happy! I plan on staying with my streak of early a.m. walking...if I can do this on a regular basis I can add in ST and then yoga and pilates. It's my goal and my intention...we HAVE to do these healthy things for ourselves...we MUST!

Hugs to you and keep on keepin' on....I love you dear virtual daughter! Never worry about being too busy to touch base...I know you are thinking of me often as I do you! emoticon emoticon

As I was browsing for some Motivational quotes, I came across this one that I related to so well, it speaks volumes for me as I struggle to get back on the wagon of healthy living. Hope you it enjoy it...

Monday is a Fresh Start -- it's never too late to dig in & begin a new journey of success. (Author Unknown)
