It's the Time of My Life...

I was a chunky child, slightly overweight in my teens, but lost it all AFTER I had my children! I stayed slim for over 20 years. Then middle age crept in and settled in places I never thought it would...I'm on a quest for a healthier, better version of me for this particular time in my life.

SparkPoints: 75,975

Fitness Minutes: 51,324

My Goals:
It seems I'm always starting over! I have more determination this time around. I know I must exercise, drink all my water, and watch my food intake better. Having recently learned that I'm going to be a grandmother---of twins---I need to be the best me that I can! I can't be of great use to others if I don't take good care of myself.



My Program:
I have a Bowflex, many DVD's and videos, a fitness ball and weights...all that I need to be the best me I can be. Portion control needs to be a big part of my plan! I will go back to drinking water like I used to. I know what to do, I just need to rededicate myself to doing it! I rejoined WW for the accountability of weighing in--in public and with clothes on! I've started being a Loser because of determination!





Personal Information:
I teach 1st grade at a small private school. My husband of almost 38 years passed away right after Christmas in 2010 and I'm learning to be a new 'me' and to find a 'new normal,' as one friend keeps reminding me. I have so many wonderful friends, Spark Sisters and a great family. My journey for better health all around begins every day.


There was a motivational quote from Pope John Paul II here at SP. It's just what I need for my own motivation: "Consult
not your fears, but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." I will look ahead to better health and better life experiences.

Other Information:
I love to read---you'll usually find me with a book in my hand! I am years behind in my scrapbooking but I still try...and I love making greeting cards. I need to get a grip on cleaning my house...but these other things always beckon...

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one. ― C.S. Lewis

An Irish Prayer

May God give you ...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing to each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Thank you again Mary for recognizing my efforts on the exercise front. I really need to work on the food part more. Stress eating right now and not sure how to conquer it.
