My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit... it's time to Finally Live like it!

A number of things bring me to this point in my life:

* quit smoking on Thanksgiving of 2011. (My doctor asks if I'm still a former smoker, and I laugh and say that I've "been there done that" and it was stupid so I'm not going back!)

* Dad had a stroke in May 2012. It was terrifying watching as he struggled for words and for basic muscle function.

* My blood pressure was deadly. 188/110 alarmed me to the fact that I would have a stroke, too.

* Asking for a seatbelt extender on the airplane is SO humiliating! I am committed to being able to fly to Belarus this summer without having to ask for one.

So here I am, ready to LIVE and not die. I want to be useful to God, not limited physically because of my weight or my health.
