"I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength" ~Phil 4:13. I CAN be the best version of me. I CAN make steady progress and achieve my goals of fitness and health. I CAN be focused and mindful. I CAN build great habits and turn loose of those habits that do not help me reach my goals. I CAN be consistent in exercise and food choices. I CAN enjoy the journey and not stress over the time it takes to reach my goals. I CAN live out my faith and be a good example to others. I CAN embrace the age of 50 and live with gratitude each day in which I've been blessed. So, yeah...actually I CAN!

Small town girl living in the city. Former Kindergarten teacher that transitioned to social services. Married to my best friend for 28+ years. We have three sons, a lovely daughter-in-law, a beautiful granddaughter and a handsome grandson. Turning 50 in January 2018 and I want to be ready for it!

    emoticon for your comments and greeting mid-July...sorry for the slow response. July has been a month of transition and we are closing the month, doing well. We moved my mom in with us...she is thrilled with her 2-room suite (bedroom, sitting room/den + bath)!! She was in a retirement center nearby, but we all decided it was time for her to be with us. At 91 (92 in October), she is very mentally alert, but needed more stimulation and engagement in life...what a difference, so far! We are all grateful and blessed...praise God! I hope you and your precious family are doing well. Thank you for your support and friendship.
