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 11 and 13) who live in the Atlanta area.

DH and I have spent most of the past several years in the role of caregiver for our parents. We need to focus on our health now.

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!

    I define comfort as self-acceptance. When we finally learn that self-care begins & ends w/ourselves, we no longer demand sustenance & happiness from others. Jennifer Louden

    Conquer it by admitting that you are afraid, but then proceed immediately with enthusiasm as if it were impossible to fail. Yahaya Baruwa
