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 be as fit and healthy as I can.

I want to live to see my grandchildren (and possibly their children) grow up and be healthy and fit enough to enjoy them.

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

I want to see a 'new' me!!






My Program:
Daily exercising, going for long walks, gardening.

Eating healthily.
It is not a diet, it's a healthy eating programme.




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 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!

The Raven was fun to watch. The other Raven also had a roll, but flew off to be by itself.

Good Morning, Beautiful Lady!!
You mentioned the humidity - is it very humid in your corner of the world. We are quite warm here, but have a low humidity. Thank You, God!! A number of years ago when i was in Africa, it was quite humid - and i remember how hard it was to get dressed after a shower.

I have been feeling rather drained the past few days - i think it is the heat. I do enjoy the warmer weather, but this year I have felt it much more.

Am going to meet Elaine this morning at our favorite place - the Donut Shop - for our chat and Bible study. My one splurge for the week - a maple bar. I go planning to get something else, but these are so good!

Hope you are having a good day - and do keep cool.

Thanks for telling me out www.rawfoodrecipes.com and congratulations on losing over 100 lbs! emoticon How did you do it? There are so many conflicting ideas out there about diet, I just dont know which direction to go. Distilled, triple filtered water seems like the only thing still allowed.

Just looked at your flickr pictures. OH, my - that little calf is just beautiful!! After my father-in-law died, my Mother-in-law married a dairy farmer and my children so enjoyed going to the farm. And they had such stories to share and Grandpa's cows.
