Hello, fellow residents of SPARK Land. It feels a little strange to be posting on SPARK again, since I've been away for over a year. So it's a new year, and I've promised myself that I want to be more in charge of my own health and fitness: exercising some every day, eating mostly veggie, getting more sleep at night, and balancing all that obligation and work with some FUN.
Short term, I want to lose about 17 pounds, add exercise daily (no whiny excuses any more!), and stabilize my blood sugar keep my type 2 diabetes from progressing... Aw, heck, I want to be buff & beautiful! (grin)
Healthy, nonprocessed low-glycemic load protein, and a TRUCKLOAD of high fiber veg. All that water. Walking, a little yoga, but looking for more fun additions to fitness. Support from all my marvelous online friends at Spark People!!
Hi! I'm Claudia, living in the beautiful eastern Tennessee mountains. I'm a type 2 diabetic diagnosed 11 years ago, fighting hard to get healthy.
As you may have guessed from my name, I'm a devotee of all things science fiction. I teethed on Analog and Weird Stories (literally). I also love fantasy, mysteries, film noir, anime, and a variety of offbeat music.

Thanks for the Goodie, Claudia, I will find a pic of a Crown & put it on my Vision Board....plus one in my Wealth corner....and maybe one on my Crystal grid, too...underneath the main central Crystal....What do you think? I'm trying to win a Prize home, for somewhere to live for about 9 months to do my Spiritual work, then I want to sell it to finance myself for the rest of my days, as I have just turned 70, that shouldn't be too long, unless the Shift in December makes me younger, hahaha...well, that's the plan, anyway...Until then I'm just enjoying all the lovely Abundance of good wishes & Love I'm receiving at the moment.....Plus, I won a Hair Care prize, was worth at least $60....(Herbal Essences stuff, my fave hair care stuff)...and a grateful client gave me a brand new set of Tarot cards, so I can now do a course & learn how to interpret them....I'm so grateful for all of this abundance....and so blessed to have so many lovely friends like you....
Keep it up, Claudia, it's working, whatever you're doing....
Just watched the closing ceremony , Olympic Games. was great. If you watch later, stay with it, as there's more at the end....my Tip for the Day....
Well, better go & give thanks out to my friends...
