It's been 32 months since I've written here, where does the time go...? So, I'm making a serious commitment to my health after learning that I'm inching closer to dialysis. Since I can't imagine a world without me in it, I need to make changes now and I want to use Sparkpeople as a springboard.

HI, I'm baaccckkkk! Hibernated from the heat all summer; too hot to even go over to the pool in my apartment complex! Will be resuming my walk to P'town in October. After my job ended in March I made the decision to semi-retire ( real retirement 4/14). Am currently a substitute teacher and assessor for the Boston Public School system's adult education component. Gearing up to get back out on the road by re-entering training, health and wellness mode. (After trying to beat the heat all summer with ice cream!) I look forward to jumping back into the SPARKPEOPLE pool.

64 year old "Gramma" still feels 30 inside! I work full-time as a GED language arts instructor teaching inner-city young people. My health has been up and down throughout the years. I'm a sugar junkie and would like to restructure my eating habits from 80% unhealthy, 20% healthy to 80% healthy and 20% unhealthy. To celebrate my 65th birthday next year I am training to walk from Boston to Provincetown, MA (about 120 miles (for my 50th I walked a marathon). I'm looking forward to Sparkpeople's support and motivation.

"...if I carried on as I was, my future was not going to be what I wanted it to be....if I repeated what I did today 365 times, in a year's time I would not be any closer to where I wanted to be. My future was the accumulation of my todays - it was only by doing the right things, day after day, that I would create the future I wanted.... I had to make every day count."
