Oh how I wish I was on a warm beach!

I am now a bit more "creaky" than I would like to be which means I have to listen to my body but also keep it moving. I am absolutely certain that exerting energy will help me stay energized as much as having a good night sleep.

This is what I love about SparkPeople...it really does advocate balance and having a healthy lifestyle. At this time I think I need reminding more than ever. When I was younger there is no doubt I could get away with a lot more such as eating larger ...

When I was younger there is no doubt I could get away with a lot more such as eating larger meals and keeping the weight off, not having to worry about aches and pains, etc.

I am so glad that I have been blessed with good health and will do my best NOT to take that for granted when so many I know don't have the opportunity to do so.

Fitness Minutes: 34,565

My Goals:
Now that I have had time to look over others goals it really is time to do some of my own. At first I was just interested in losing some of this pudge that is all over! But now, I realize that I want to be fit and healthy as well as feel good about me at this stage of my life. My summer I want to be 12 pounds lighter and not huff and puff so much when I run. Deadline is 6/21/11

My Program:
When I am not too busy it's easy to log on and put down everything I eat. Well, I have to try to do that even when I am busy and I will do something every day to move my body.

Personal Information:
I have two adult daughters who inspire me to be healthy. A short time ago I found out that I will be a Grandma this year!! Now I will need that energy to be the most active grandparent I can be. Should be an exciting year.Neither are married or have kids but I want to be there feeling awesome should that time come. I am a realtor so sometimes it's crazy busy and sometimes not but it's all on me to schedule my time to exercise. I have to remember that this body is a gift from God and to do more to honor that fact.

Other Information:
I love to read and am part of a neighborhood book club. I love watching movies more than I should. I sing and spend much of Sunday doing choir stuff, especially near Christmas and Easter. I have dabbled in making jewelry and needlework,(key word is dabbled here). I am working on getting my house is good shape and will soon be stripping wallpaper and grabbing a paint brush.

Exercise is inspiring...I love to be surrounded by dumb-bells.

I see you were surrounded by dumb-bells this week - because you are in the top five for team fitness minutes! emoticon

Keep smiling as you workout and you will fool yourself into believing you enjoy it!
I am rooting for your success!

The weather where I live has been frigid with lost of snow. It is a time of year when being cooped up due to the weather can cause a feeling of loneliness and perhaps even cause turning to food. Here is a Prayer for MidWinter that I have been saying this week.
From the rising of the midwinter sun to its setting,

Scatter the darkness with the light of your love, O Shining One.( I say Jesus)

Make me short on mean thoughts, long on offers words of comfort.

Make me short on being driven, long on paying attention.

Make me short on focusing only on my own, long on looking beyond.

Make me short on obsessive lists, long on spontaneous acts of kindness,

Make me short on mindless activity, long on time to reflect.

Make me short on tradition as a habit, long on rediscovery and re-owning.

Make me short on rushing a tiring, long on walking and wondering.

Make me short on false, festive jollity, long on stilling and rooted joy.

Make me short on guilt, long on being merciful to myself.

Make me short on being overwhelmed, long on peaceableness as I set forth this day.

-from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward

I hope it ministers to you also.
