Now is the time for me to get healthier and be the best me I can be! I am 57 years old, married with one daughter.

June, 2016~

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

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

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 & worked 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."

    My son's fiance passed her boards. She took them in Sioux Falls Tues. My son takes his July 28th. I wish he had already taken tbem! I'm a nervous wreck. He doesn't worry about tests the way I do. 😦⬅️me.

    Thanks for the prayers. My son and his fiance were told to take a week off studying for boards and they are taking that to heart. I'm more of a keep-the-studying-momentum-up-because-you-

    Congrats on your 200 lifetime mile award. Awesome! Last day of school. We have meetings, packing up, house cleaning, and then headed up in your direction to help with my mom and 6 week old granddaughter.
