I am working on my Master of Science in Psychology to teach at the college level, I am half way there!!!

I have graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Summa Cum Laude and accepted in the International Honor Society of PSI CHI for psychology.

***************************************
I am working on my goal - one day at a time
Living with chronic kidney failure - is challenging some days! As well as thyroid disease, allergies, and other chronic issues that have flared up in the last three months.

****************************************
**********
My goals and commitment:
My commitment is to ME - FOR me

Revamping my goals:
I am riding a stationary bike every day from 10 to 60 minutes, depending upon my ankle and my health... I am adding strength training back to my routine 2x a week.

Track, track, track nutrition and fitness
Stick to my kidney friendly diet
Eat more fruits and veggies for snacks!

I want to FEEL fit and strong
I want to LOOK fit and strong

I want to feel GOOD everyday

I want to be able to have endurance with minimal pain

I want exercise to become like a second skin to me
****************************************
*********
I love to scrapbook, crochet and I love to swim.

I LOVE Detroit Redwing Hockey and Tiger Baseball teams!

I just celebrated my 6th year sparkversary!

Six years on Spark fighting through major and minor health issues along way - may have detoured me on my journey to losing weight but it has never waylaid me to leave spark. I continue to Spark on through it all - learning new ways to gain health. I have left 6 specialists in the medical field - woohoo! and I have gained so much health! With my flare-ups I have returned to two specialists... ugh! My allergist and my endocrinologist.

I have had thirteen surgeries/procedures - eight within the last 10 years. I have a left ankle impairment - I was hit by a drunk driver 17 years ago.

I don't make resolutions. I make commitments to myself, knowing that along the pathway to health, I will take many detours on this journey.

I do have goals I strive to meet.

I have learned that I have to be willing to give and to take, push and to shove, fighting my way - full blast head first through conflict, defeat, and sometimes even despair. But, always on my way I go.

I know that my God, well He is limitless. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I shall overcome and I shall not give in.

Come back soon.. I change my theme often!

Thank you for the balloons! My goal is to attain even better health this year and walk on my treadmill at least 30 minutes 6 days a week. Yesterday I was able to walk 20 minutes, even with gout!
Have a wonderful week!
