Get Healthy

Hello, my name is Leslie and I fully enjoy being a wife and mother. I was always taught that family came first! Love that motto. Only "concern" is that I always seemed to put myself last which meant I never had enough time to exercise or watch my food intake. Sparks has helped me change that...I love this interactive site...getting motivation from others...reading advice and comments from other members...THANK YOU Sparks for getting me on the road to success!

Wow, great to hear from you!! I was thinking of you this morning wondering how you are and how life is going! Guess what, my brother who lives in NY is moving back to Ohio...He is renting a place in Stow until he can find a house to buy. He used to llive in Kent 10 yrs ago and his one daughter still lives there - the one we visited when we stopped in to meet you. So, he is moving back and starting back at his old job in a couple of weeks. Don't know when we'll be visiting out there but we have a place to stay now so we can come see YOU!!!!!!

Miss you - hope all is well. Your son is a senior this year, right? You know I'll be thinking of you and my heart is right there with yours!

Love you xoxoxoxoxo

Ahhhhh, Leslie, my friend, how wonderful to hear from you and see you on Sparks..like old times. I hope you don't ever feel bad about not keeping up with me. I really do understand how busy your life is. You have a lot going on and you have to give your attention to your wonderful family and job and I know there is very little left over for yourself. I think of you often and even though we don't communicate much, I still feel close to you.

Did you get all the cleaning done you wanted? I remember the days of sorting and purging kids stuff. Now its mostly my stuff. =)

I'm sure you miss your son but he probably is having a great time. Great he was able to go away. How are the girls?

Things are going well here. Still no jobs but God provides. I do weekly job searches and only one place called me for an interview - Planet Fitness. It didn't work out which was probably for the best as the pay was very low and not that many hours. I was excited though because it involved fitness.

I continue to workout a lot. We had been saving all our gift money etc for a while and finally got enough money to buy the elliptical I wanted. I had been wanting one for a long time and I can't believe its in my workout room now. I love it and usually get 45-60 min. on it. I have so much energy. I think my body likes the exercise change too. I was getting in a rut.

I have been studying on line to get certified as a personal trainer. It is going slow as I study at my own pace and life does get in the way. I really have to make myself focus on it and not what chore etc. that I could be doing. I do love it though. Learning about the body is so fascinating and when I read how we are so intricately made it just proves all the more that there is a God and what a creative one He is. He truly is amazing!

Well, I went down to the grocery store to bring my "boys" supper tonight and sit with them. Then I went shopping and got home about 10:00 and still have to put away several bags yet. I like visiting them down there and its fun to shop and "run" into them. =)

Take care - thanks so much for the goodie - the sentiment is the same!

Love you,
Bev
Please say hello to your hubby and kids for me.

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born October 28, you are destined for greatness, but you are also likely to be subjected to periods of disappointment that could very well be too much for you if you are not deeply committed to staying the course and doing everything you can to succeed. You may have to overcome one or two serious weaknesses; once you do, however, you are likely to find that the world is your oyster -- but you will always have to keep your own personal demons at bay.

Your greatest challenge is likely to be the result of a spectacular success that comes to you early in life; such a triumph can be difficult as you try to repeat yourself and relive the excitement of the original moment. The error, of course, is in trying to repeat it.

Today’s Scorpio Horoscope: You are feeling quite confident, and yet there is something you don't know that could make all the difference when fully rev!

You share a birthday with: Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Julia Roberts, actress; Daphne Zuniga, actress; Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iranian president; Bill Gates, computer mogul; Bruce Jenner, Olympic decathlon champion; Charlie Daniels, country singer; Cleo Laine, singer; Jonas Salk, biologist.

Hope your day is wonderful!

Hey stranger! How are you? I think of you all the time and wonder how things are going with you and your family. My son was just asking yesterday if we had talked lately. =)

He is doing fine. One full week down in college and seems to be getting in a groove. Hope he keeps it up. He also works part time and he seems to be busier than ever. So far he is pretty balanced in all he's doing.

Yeah, my back went out about 1 1/2 wks ago and it is still tentative. I have to be very careful in sitting and moving. I started working out again yesterday since putting it out and was extremely careful but it went well and may have actually helped.

Irene came through but our area didn't get hit much - just a little bit of a mess. Many areas around us did get hit good and so many are without power still. My friends had downed trees and still no power. We were blessed for sure.

So the kids are back in school. HOpe they have a great year. Are you still working same job? How is hubby and mother-in-law? HOpe all are doing well.

Did you do anything fun over the summer? Any trips? We only had a weekend in Baltimore to see Tigers play against Orioles. Fun. Celebrated our nephews 18th birthday over that weekend. No other vacations. Graduation party was expensive and hubby took off time for that and to spend time with all our relatives visiting so not able to do anything else. College costs are adding up too. =) We're managing just fine though. God blesses and provides!

I miss you, Sista! I can't tell you how many times you cross my thoughts and I know how busy your life is. I keep on Sparks but not quite as religiously as a year ago and I've struggled w/my weight for the past few months. Such a battle.

Well, got to get to bed - up early tomorrow to volunteer at church.

Stay well, and hope you're on again soon to let me know how you're doing.

Miss you - oxoxoxoxo
Love,
Bev
