Blessed with another beautiful day!

Trying to balance some health issues with the responsibility of looking out for others can be a challenge. I try to meet those challenges each day in a positive way.

Àugust 9,2014 marked 52 weeks of maintenance! I have learned that maintaining a healthy goal weight is as challenging as losing the weight. You can never get complacent about eating well or exercising reglarly. The good news is :We can do this with the support of Soarkpeople and our wonderful Sparkfriends! It is a daily journey taken one day at a time.

Personal Information:
My husband and I live in a small town not far from the greater Atlanta area.

In June of 2012 I retired from teaching, a career that I embarked upon in 1972. During those 40 years I taught full time for 26 years and was a stay at home mom for 14 years.

I did not start any type of exercise program until I hit some roadblocks in my 60s. I am not proud of that, but I am proof that it is NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself.


Other Information:
I love to spend time with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters
(ages 9 and 11) who live in the Atlanta area.

DH and I spend lots of time with my parents
( ages 87 and 90) who live 10 minutes away. They are needing more and more of our time & attention.

I love the tranquility of nature. Gardening and feeding the birds are my daily indulgences.

I love coffee, and I love chocolate.

I now love exercise (amazing, but true). I didn't begin any form of exercise program until I was in my 60s, following a serious accident. What a difference today!
