I am 62 years old, a mom of three amazing grown boys, a grandmother of a 4 year old girl and a 2 year old boy, a wife of 43 years, a passionate & retired special education teacher of 36 years, and a devoted sister, sister-in-law, aunt, 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 39 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 walk/jog 4-5 times per week.
I will practice yoga at the studio 3-5 times per week.
*I will track my walk/jog miles and exercise minutes daily.
*I will track my food and nutrients periodically to stay on track.
*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 13 years. I hope to share my experience, strength, and hope for a better life with others.

Thank you emoticon

I am pretty excited about my non scale victories. My slow and steady pace seems to be paying off!

Thanks for your comment on my blog post Leslie :-) You're right, of course, about not getting too much sun. We don't get so much hot sun but I still wear sunblock if I'm going to be out much. I feel sun-deprived for much of the year. Have nice rest-of-your-week!

For us a family pool pass was cheaper than having a pool at home. You are right, It is a lot of work to have a pool. If I could afford to have someone else take care of it I would have a pool in my backyard in a heart beat!

It was refreshing to be with family today. Unfortunately that is not always the case. I have a large family and it does get a little nerve racking sometimes when we all get together. I love them all just the same though. I hope you have a wonderful first week of summer!

Thanks! We have always been very active as a family. I hate to waste the precious time I have with my daughter before she grows up. Making as many good memories as possible is my goal!

I wish I could share our rain with California! It just doesn't seem fair that we are flooding and ya'll have water restrictions.
