I am beginning to make some major changes in my lifestyle. My husband and I quit smoking, and now we want to increase our activity and change our diet to a more healthy one. I am of Cherokee decent married to an Argentinian. I'm interested in all things Native American, art, gardening, and nature.
Right after I joined, my husband was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer; consequently, I was distracted from Sparkpeople and all it entails.
Things have finally calmed down and I'm able to focus on me again to some extent, so I'm back to Sparkpeople in Jan. 2014. Baring any more Crises, I'm back to taking care of myself and am determined to lose weight, but more importantly, to get healthy. I want to lose 50 pounds, lower my blood pressure, and get generally healthier and more fit and energetic. 2014 is going to be my year!

I am keeping you and your family in my prayers. Keep on exercising to manage stess. Crying and walking helps me let out some of my grieving over my brothers brain cancer. Sending you life hugs.

Thanks for your note on my blog. Whatever you do, though, don't go back to smoking! My DH went on eCig and has been "smoke" free for 6 months, after smoking 3 packs a day for an eon.
