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 ...

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

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."

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!
