Sue's Journey

I'm Sue, a 52 year old mom to two active boys. I never struggled with my weight when I was younger, but since getting married and having kids it seems to be a constant battle. I joined SparkPeople to get the extra support I need to get to my health and fitness goals.

I make and sell home-made jams and jellies. Many of them are without added sugar so they fit better in a healthy life-style. One of my favorite places to sell them is at a local Farmer's Market. I'm also looking for ...

I saw this sign outside a Day Spa yesterday and decided it would be a good thing to remember:

Start where you are
Use what you have
Do what you can

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

SparkPoints: 99,370

Fitness Minutes: 73,494

My Goals:
My current short-term goal is to re-tool my eating. I'm still eating way too much junk. My long-term goals include getting my thyroid balanced out and actually feeling fit for the first time in my life.

My Program:
I'm on the process of re-working my fitness plan, again. I aim for 5-6 days of cardio a week alternating between walking, my exercise bike and various DVDs. I do yoga once a week. I'm trying to get myself back into strength training 3 days a week, something I've been slacking on lately.

I still have some issues with portion control, but I'm getting better.

Personal Information:
I'm married with 2 boys. I live in Southwestern IL - about 30 min. from St. Louis.

I spent 20+ years in various medical research labs, before leaving to spend more time with my kids.

Other Information:
I'm an avid reader - Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings are my all time favorites. I also like to garden, cross stitch and crochet.

Hi Sue,
Greetings! I hope you are well and are happily working on your SparkJourney goals. I was wondering if I could make an order for two Sour Cherry Jams and two Cranberry chutneys? Are you still working via mail order? Please let me know if you have these in stock and your price for these items, plus shipping. Also, how are they sent out...via USPS? Would I be able to get a tracking number so I would know when to expect them. If you have these in stock, please send me your address. I will put a check in the mail to you right away. Thank you and be well. xo, ~~ Barbara

Hello dearest Sue,

I am so glad you stopped by. I miss visiting with you and regret that I am not at Hogwarts while you are there for this new Winter term. It is so much fun and you will have a blast.

Thank you for the prayers I always keep you on my list too. Only 3 days until my first surgery on the 12th and then the next on the 18th.

I will see you when I get back and we can sit with a cuppa tea and talk of old times when we were at Hogwarts together.

Love ya tons,
Nims

Hello my SPARKling Friend.....

As we are MARCHing into SPRING...
I just wanted to share this quote for You from me....


“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days,
smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds,
laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart,
hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see,
friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe,
confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself,
patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”

May this March & Spring...
bring you many Blessings & Much LOVE ~ Ursula / Seven
