The Time to Become Healthier is NOW!

Now is the time for me to get healthier and be the best me I can be! I am 54 years old, married with one daughter.

February, 2014 ~

It's time to get serious and re-focus!

I have gained some of the weight I lost, back.

I am in the process of re-evaluating what I need to do to move forward. I am changing some of my goals. Focusing on the basics. Cutting out some of the clutter.

I will continue to use the SparkPeople's website ...

I am in the process of re-evaluating what I need to do to move forward. I am changing some of my goals. Focusing on the basics. Cutting out some of the clutter.

I will continue to use the SparkPeople's website in ways that have been helpful to me in the past. I will use the Nutrition Tracker and the Fitness Tracker.
I will continue to support my fellow Sparkers by reading your blogs and cheering you on. I appreciate all of your kind support, too!

Let's all start the New Year with realistic and do-able goals...one step at a time.

I had reached my SparkPeople weight loss goal of 49 pounds lost on May 21, 2011.

I want to be healthy & happy for the rest of my life.

I have been overweight most of my life.

I also have been a yo-yo dieter.

I enjoy walking and yoga.

A goal of mine is to find balance and moderation in ALL areas of my life.

My name is Maria & I live in Minnesota.

I worked for over 30 years in the accounting & banking fields...I currently work part-time as a Library Assistant.
I also work on our farm where we raise several types of animals & grow vegetables & wine grapes for local consumers.

Proverbs 3:5: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

So good to hear your brother is doing well since his transplant!! This winter is crazy so far! We got down to 30 last night...21 degrees below normal! 50's today and tomorrow. I feel like a emoticon
Stay warm up there in chilly MN!! Keep moving and it helps stay warm!! Thank you for such an encouraging comment on my blog-you are such a special friend to me!! I do think this is the best I have ever felt in all aspects of my life...except for getting older and creeky old bones! emoticon But, it is what it is, and like you I will never give up!! emoticon

Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.

How wonderful to hear from you! It's good to touch base, isn't it? But I can't promise to be very active on the site yet - this is going to be a hectic month in school!

I do track my exercise every day, but don't even try to track food... takes more time and effort than I can give it right now! LOL!!

I have been going to bed earlier, and trying to ger 7-8 hours of sleep every night.... seems I really need it at this point!

So glad to talk to you.... and to know you are well also!

Blessings and hugs!
