I am 62 years old, a mom of three amazing grown boys, a grandmother of a 3 year old girl and a 1 year old boy, a wife of 42 years, a passionate & retired special education teacher of 36 years, and a devoted sister, sister-in-law, niece, and friend. In July of 2010, I completed the San Francisco 1/2 Marathon with some dear friends. I completed the HM in Palm Springs in Feb. 2012. I wasn't speedy, but I bettered my time from my HM in San Francisco. My goal is to remain healthy, lose a few pounds, and maintain a happy, spontaneous, nutritious, and active lifestyle.
I live in Southern California in an old but growing community located in a valley below the San Bernardino mountains on the edge of the lower desert, west of Palm Springs. My husband and I have lived and raised our boys in our current home (previously his grandparents retirement home) for 38 years.

My Goals:
Now that I understand the Spark program more completely I can set better goals:
*I will exercise at least 5 days a week.
*I will drink 8 glasses of water each day.
*I will schedule cardio and strength training.
*I will track my exercise.
*I will track my food and nutrients.
*I will read inspirational meditations and pray each morning.....no excuses....positive outlook.
*I will stay active, productive, and engaged in life every day.
*I will show GRATITUDE in my thoughts and actions.

My Program:
I am diving full speed into the Spark program and determined not to get discouraged or deterred from my goals.

Personal Information:
I have had many personal hurdles to overcome in my life. I have successfully overcome them with the help of God, a supportive husband, three wonderful sons, several very important biological family members, and amazing friends. I continue to live a blessed life one moment at a time. I expect to have many more hurdles in the future and feel prepared to meet the challenges.

Other Information:
I had two heart attacks in 1989 & 1991. I am in remission from an autoimmune disease called Sweet's Syndrome. I had a complete hip replacement in 2006. I had cataracts in both eyes, lenses replaced in 2008.
My jogging/walking began in 2010. Anything is possible at any age!!!

A crucial aspect of my spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health is that I am a successfully recovering alcoholic of 12 years. I hope to share my experience, strength, and hope for a better life with others.

I wonder where they get that "lifetime" mileage number.

Wishing you well with the cooler weather! I'm already beginning to fret over the shorter daylight hours. Time to say the Serenity Prayer and move on!
