Interests: I have returned to yoga classes in addition to my home practice but my main activity is still with my walking with my dog "Sugar"! She's from a rescue and has flourished since I adopted her. She's worth her weight in gold because she makes me laugh! She's also a great motivator to get out for a one to three mile walk every day. She has been a real gift to me and my health.
October 2010, we adopted Xena as a kitten; she's livened up our household considerably and keeps tabs on my indoor "spark" walks! By 2011 walking has become a primary fitness activity for me; as I entered 2012 hooping had become a close second. 2013 has been a year of major yard changes and gardening activity! 2014 a lot of energy was put into fixing up my house and adding more gardens.
Time with my family and friends and regular gym workouts in the winter months are my other primary outside activities. Maintaining my home and yard and gardening keep me busy too. Yard and gardening spring through the fall sometimes takes the place of other fitness activities. Reading, sewing and crafts when I have time; keeping busy never a problem! Finding more time sometimes is.
I just keep growing and changing in healthy ways; life is good!

Hi Joy, hope you are having a great day. Thanks for commenting on my blog "Mockingbird Hill". My mom loved to sing, if it was on the hit parade she was singing it. She had a very positive influence on me. That sonf always makes me happy. I too have a lot of mockingbirds where I live. Hugs Pat

Well, as always, I agree with your comment 110%! Maybe we were "separated at birth". I agree especially that it is not necessary to feel hungry but it was good for me during this perios because in my whole life I don't think I ever "felt" hunger before this. It taught me that the times I was EATING because of "hunger" I was really overeating to NEVER feel hunger. Now I check to see if I'm really hungry or FEARFUL of being hungry!

Thanks for all your great support and comments, Joy. I also agree about food not being "fun" but necessary!
