After a six year absence from Spark I am back, not because I need to lose weight or get fitter but I am here again to stay motivated and involved with all that Spark has to offer.
In those six years I experienced many firsts: a hip replacement which has been a 100% success and game changer, another grandchild (a very dynamic girl), a new house and neighbourhood, the graduation of my daughter from eleven years of veterinary studies, adoption of a plant based diet and sadly the death of my husband.
Life throws curveballs at times but once you get back up you find that new challenges and freedoms await. I have decided that age is just a number and so I will work hard at fuelling and caring for my mind and body as best I can. Canada Day seems to be as good a time to begin so here I go.

Goal- maintain my weight in the low to mid 130's

I love to garden. Crosswords and reading keep me busy when the snow flies. Cooking is also a delight- I'm always looking for new ideas for vegetarian meals. I am passionate about diet and exercise and firmly believe that we do have the power to keep ourselves healthy by eating well and being active.

    I am sure if you set your mind to it, you will find yourself in push-up land in no time! emoticon

    Best wishes on your journey!

    Thanks for the blog love! The spot where I hauled out the containers with the blankets, etc. looks much better now! Now if I could just get rid of Dearly Beloved's cats I could really get the place clean! Not going to happen. emoticon

    Thanks for commenting on my blog and I tweak my plan all the time. Have been maintaining for over 4 years and want to be sure that continues!

    Thanks for your note on my "Continue to Learn" blog. Tomorrow should be "Appreciate People," if all goes well! I also got a new hip right before Thanksgiving last year and my daughter completed a 5-year program to be a nurse practitioner! And, she just had a few baby! I didn't move, though, but I did retire!! Sounds as though we have a few things in common...Have a blessed day!
