A new me.

Hi I'm Martha-Ann.
I WILL endeavour to reach the goal I've set myself.
I CAN do it.
I want to be healthier and eat better.
I've had (still have) a few health problems but I've beaten cancer and now I'm just getting on with life.

I love SparkPeople.
It has everything I could ask for.
Good advice, great ideas but most of all friendship.
The people I've met through this site are wonderful and are helping me towards a better, healthier way ...

THANKYOU.

This is a Sanskrit proverb by the fifth century poet Kalidasa, it seems to sum things up perfectly.

Salutation to the Dawn.

Listen to the salutation of the dawn!
Look to this day,
For it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
The realities and verities of existence.

The bliss of growth,
The splendour of action,
The glory of power...

For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the salutation of the dawn!

My Goals:
I want to feel more confident about myself.

I want to work on small goals of 10lbs and give myself a reward everytime I hit one.






My Program:
Exercising, going for long walks, gardening.

Cutting down on calories, eating more healthily.



Personal Information:
I'm from Yorkshire, England...we call it 'God's Own Country'.

I live in a small village in the country but am only a few miles from the sea so I have the best of both worlds.

I'm 65 years young.

My DH and I have been happily married for 43 years.

I'm a daughter, wife, mother, grandma, nana, niece, cousin, aunt and great aunt.




Other Information:
My hobbies are very varied, everything from puzzles to zentangles, reading to gardening, walking to birdwatching, writing to photography.
I love language too, the nuances and foibles, so I enjoy dabbling with writing and poetry...my son once called me a wordsmith...I wish I lived up to it!

Hi Martha...thanks for commenting on my blog. I just noticed your ticker...wow! You are doing amazing with your weight loss. You must be so proud of yourself emoticon . How nice to be able to clean out the closet and donate the clothing you can no longer wear to someone who is in need. Also nice to be able to buy new and smaller size clothes. Good for you! Keep on doing what you've been doing. emoticon

Your so kind Martha. I too like to donate what I can not use. There is always someone who can use what we don't need. emoticon

Glad to see your Apple Tree is budding. Nothing like fresh fruit. I have always wanted Oriental Poppies. emoticon
