Livin' the good life!

I came to SparkPeople to turn things around in my life. As I get closer to retirement, I've vowed that a rocking chair is not in my future! And it's working - after a year, I've shed the pounds, and have a much healthier outlook on life. Doesn't get much better than that!

Personal Information:
I'm a 62 year old biologist, currently living in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of SW VA. I became a biologist because I have a deep appreciation and concern for all of the beautiful creatures with whom we share our planet, but especially birds. I enjoy getting outside, hiking, bird watching, and hand crafts. Luckily for me, I live in the perfect spot to indulge in all of the above. I'm also very interested in nutrition and the local foods movement. I guess you could say that I have a long history of tree-hugging!

Hi Judy,

Brought ya some leftovers... emoticon this picnic basket was the closest emoticon I could fine emoticon well there is this picture of raw looking steak...hmm lets stick with the picnic basket emoticon it looks yummier...(is that even a word...hmmm....okay it is my word)..

I am doing good buddy...24 days logging...I will admit though I need to pick up on my exercise and I need to quit eating sweet yummy foods like the ice cream sundae I had after dinner emoticon but hey I was in my calorie ranges and all my other ones too...but fat was way up there...go figure...eat ice cream ..eat too much fat...who knew emoticon

Over all I am doing well....will tackle one bad habit at a time and this time it is sugar my eveil nemisis emoticon (I think sugar is best represented by this devil emoticon) so here goes my short term goal...for the next 15 days I am going to kick the sugar habit...starting right now....... emoticon

Cherrie....

Hi Judy, Thanks for the new workout clothes! I can sure use them! And I need to look good with my new sneaker goodies!
Weather here is snow turned to rain which = one big slushy mess to shovel. More snow expected Monday (of course, I have to work).
Stay safe and warm!

Hi Judy,
Thanks for the beach garb .. . it's actually been in the 40's and 50's to 60's during the day - a bit nippy for the beach, but I'll need it soon :)
I'm mostly relaxing and a little shopping this weekend. Tomorrow is PT and I'm thinking it's the last.
Enjoy your last hurrah!
Hugs to you 3,
From us ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. DH's diet is restrictive but it isn't too long. We have seen some grass fed beef products in the store but the price is enormous (a pound of hamburger is about $11). If he has to eliminate corn, I will start to investigate where we can get grass fed beef more directly from the farmer. I know there are organic farms around here.

I hope you're enjoying the last day before term starts. Got something fun planned or just relaxing?
