My life has been a struggle. Two steps forward, sometimes five steps backwards. Basically in and out of physical accidents, emotional crisis, most bigger than life circumstances. It wears you down. How many times must I climb the mountain to finally stay there. Now is my final race,45 lib up from a car accident, yet I am physically back to normal . Or so I thought. Joined ww it helped me loose weight, but my cholesterol shot up. Back to spark again where my cholesterol showed 35 points down when I was at my highest weight. Now I found out that I have a heart condition cause by the impact to the stiring wheel in that car accident. Am taking magnesium & doing other things to dissolve the calcium deposits in y front valve. But this is my last race, and my final one . No more excuses to my self about whatever stress comes along. This is serious! No more games. When I reach my goal, at the mountain top, I know it will give me back so many things I have lost long ago, and I will try to just ignore the emotional hole I am trying to fill! I am not a rock yet, but I am a rock!!!

My Goals:
I would like to finally conquer my fears, and keep my health stable. As well as growing stronger in faith by knowing God's Word.

My Program:
I am learning more about maintaining a healthy life style, as well as cooking healthier. I am learning to release my fears to god, so that I won't keep this pattern of mindless eating which leads to self destruction.

Personal Information:
I am the daughter of immigrant parents, first generation. I was born over seas in a city in Germany that was like a resort, because the whole city was a spa. My family has some members named after the bible. I am the grand daughter of Joseph, and the child of Mary. I guess I am glad I didn't have a child, because I would have named him Christ-short for Christopher-or Chris Christopherson, ha ha. My mom remarried a chef when I was fifteen years old. But I never paid atten-tion to cooking till I was on my own.

Other Information:
I live in Michigan where we have four seasons. What has been constant in my life is that animals have come into my life. I have done rescue. "But little did I know they were rescuing me. I am very empathetic, and it shows in my writings. My unconditional love was shared by my animals. And they say that humans can never know this, except thru God.

    sorry it took me looong to get back to you...started a new job witch makes me even busier.

    I hope your feeling better and can stop some of the medicine that your on.

    Well my favorite meal these days is half a baked potato and sweet potato with a bunch of steamed veggies.

    Soups are the easiest meal to make and you can make alot and freeze some for easy meal later. You can put almost anything in soup and its a great way to use up stuff. If you can't chop up veggies for your soup (with back pain you might not want to chop) use frozen and can veggies and beans. You can grains, beans, potatoes, greens(I add at the end of cooking), squash, any other veggie. Its a complete meal in one bowl.

    I have several sites I like but I have to find some of them (again) but here is one hehe with soup recipes and boy do they look yummy...ok get some pots out it soup time...

    Have a great day and feeling great.

    Yesterday I spoke about ways each individual could make a change in this world posting the first of 25 ways to do that, today is my second suggestion
    Pay it forward. Take a photo for a tourist or open the door for someone. Random good deeds are pleasant surprises. You have no idea how it affects other people, especially those who aren’t used to being treated that way. More than how it makes the people you help feel, you might even start a ripple with your intentional generosity and helpfulness. I will put one idea forward each day this month (Pay it forward) is today's idea.
