Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 73,955

Fitness Minutes: 71,714

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

Thanks for the goodie and the reminder that I don't have to succumb to my friend's wish. I did talk to John about this last night and he said what I expected he'd say -- whatever you want to do.

Have a good day. I hope volunteering went well yesterday and that you aren't too busy today. I get a day at home. I need to corral the papers and do some baking for John.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I thought that writing everything down might help me make the final decision. I will still have my teaching license as I have a lifetime license which is active until I haven't worked in a school for five years (so far it's been two). If I don't have my national certification, I can't bill but I can have a supervisor do that. Truthfully though, I don't ever want to go back. There's way too much paperwork for me to find that desirable. My convention friend wants me to go one more year so I'll have to consider that.

T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago
H is for the harvest the settlers learned to grow
A is for America, the land in which we live
N is for nature and beauty which she gives
K is for kindness, gentle words, thoughtful deeds
S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs
G is for gratitude... our blessings big and small
I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall
V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring
I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing
N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea
G is for giving of myself to make a better me

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I don't think John has ever been cold a day in his life. I call him my furnace!

I hope you are managing in the cold. I think we had the same temps this morning. We are getting snow now -- I hope you aren't!
