This Too Will Pass

I am a 58 year old retired English teacher who wants to stay healthy and active. I am not that overweight. I weigh 138 pounds, but I want to lose at least 15 pounds because I am only five feet tall. Sometimes it is not easy because I suffer from chronic Meniere's Disease. I will not give up though. I try to stay positive and I will not allow this disease to steal anything else from me. Because of it, I had to retire. It was the right thing to do.

I am a 58 year old retired English teacher who wants to stay healthy and active. I am not that overweight. I weigh 138 pounds, but I want to lose at least 15 pounds because I am only five feet tall. Sometimes it is not easy because I suffer from chronic Meniere's Disease. I will not give up though. I try to stay positive and I will not allow this disease to steal anything else from me. Because of it, I had to retire. It was the right thing to do.

I have now been with Spark People for two years as of today, May 2, 2011. I feel very good about myself. I now walk between seven to ten miles a day and I do weight training everyday. I feel healthier than I have ever felt in my life. I do cardio three times a week and I feel wonderful. I hope and pray that my third year with Spark People is as prosperous and as blessed as my first two years were. I wish blessings on all of my Spark Friends and I pray that all of you accomplish all of your goals. God Bless all of you!!!

May2, 2012 was my third year with Spark People and I feel wonderful. I must admit that I have had a few run-ins with the dreaded Meniere's Disease, but like I have said before, "I refuse to allow this disease to beat me!!!" As far as working out, it has been great and at the end of the year, I purchased some kettle balls. I have fallen in love with this workout routine. I see a big difference in the muscles in my arms and back. They are awesome!!!! I still walk five to seven miles a day, and it seems to get easier and easier everyday. We'll see how the new year finds us.

My Goals:
I hope and pray in the years to come that I keep the weight off and stay healthy. I really want to get back to teaching.

My Program:
I try to eat right every day.

I most certainly walk my five miles or more everyday. I lift weights, workout with my bowflex, hulahoop, workout on my stability ball, and I walk on the treadmill. I also workout with tubing and kettlebells.

Personal Information:
I am from Kingsville, Texas. I received my Bachelors and Masters Degrees from Texas A&M in Kingsville, Texas. I also received my Reading Specialist certification and my Kindergarten certification from Texas A&M Kingsville. I received my Gifted/Talented certification from Texas A&M in Corpus Christi, Texas. I love teaching and I really want to get back to it.

I have four sisters and two brothers, and my wonderful parents. I married my best friend Nicolas Moreno thirty-five years ago. We have one beautiful daughter, Juliette Nicole Moreno Rodriquez and one son-in-law, Daniel Rodriquez. Our daughter is twenty-three years old. There are no grandchildren yet!

Other Information:
I love to read, anything and everything. My favorite quotes are: "This too will pass", and "Let no one come to you without leaving better and happier". I am a very positive person and I surround myself with positive people and positive situations. I believe in God and I try to do a good deed every single day.

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect.
There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions.
So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger,
more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
~Mark Victor Hansen~

Hope you have an awesome weekend.

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you a better man.
~Benjamin Franklin

Striving to improve on a daily basis will help us to reach the goal we are aiming for. Are you working to reach your goal(s) each and every day??
