Think Healthy!

I am in my fifth year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my fourth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2015. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I celebrated my fourth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2015. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 3 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

Even though I have conquered all of the above, I am faced with an even bigger "challenge". I lost my 26 year old son last November to Anorexia Nervosa. I am in the first year of my grieving process and it is very difficult. I need to stay healthy, but, it is not the first thing on my mind. And, since he passed away from counting calories, weighing himself on the scale 3 times per day, and eating halves of everything - it has been a real mental challenge for me.

My favorite quotes...

�All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything!��Gary W. Goldstein

Goals are dreams with deadlines. ---Diana Scharf Hunt

Take care of your body. It�s the only place you have to live. - Jim Rohn

What you are doing is not nearly as important as how you feel about what you are doing. - Unknown

There'll be two dates on your tombstone. And all your friends will read 'em. But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em. - Kevin Welch

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. �Walt Disney

Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice and do so against all the risks confronting you.�Guru Singh

No Matter How You Feel, Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, and Never Give Up - Unknown

My son and his financee have May 2017 in mind. They can't find a wedding venue that they can afford. The dress has been bought and they will live in the townhouse. Her guest list is 150 people, so far, and they have cut some from it.

The problem is having bathrooms and space available for that many people.

I don't know if the birds are confused. I have heard some say that the robins stay, but I don't see them. The one I picked up, comes back yearly. I can tell it is him because the upper portion of his breast sticks out noticeably. He always comes back between the houses where I found him sitting on the deck rail. He watches me like, there is that thing that grabbed hold of me and chased me around the yard when I couldn't fly.

There is green growth on the under brush. My Dad, a game warden, said the deer and birds would feed on that. I have seen wild turkeys in the woods too. The leaves are off the trees and I can see farther into the woods. The deer are feeding in open places and may have been feeding yesterday, in preparation for the snow. I don't know if animals know when the weather will change, I think they do so that they can get out of it and won't freeze to death.
