Vacation to Sanibel Island

Sunday, July 20, 2014

My intention when I began the Sparkpeople plan has always been to find something that would fit into my life and become a part of every day. Last week I was lucky enough to spend time on Sanibel Island in Florida and had a wonderful relaxing vacation.
It just seemed natural to be active and choose good healthy food along with a few treats. The best part was that my swimsuit fits!
Now it is time to be more conscious of the "Sizzling Summer Challenge"! We only have a few more weeks to go. Love you LEMONS you keep me moving!

    I love Sanibel Island. We visit every winter. I love their walking and biking trails. And the beach with all the shells is wonderful!

Congratulations on making your goal!

    I bet you had a wonderful time.

The family I work for were there 2 weeks ago.

I've never been there but I have several tee shirts from there thanks to them.

Enjoy the rest of your challenge. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It is so hard to believe how fast the weeks sail by. My intention for the rest of this challenge is to be aware of each day and get the very best out of myself.

New Month, New Week, New Challenge

Sunday, June 01, 2014

It never ceases to amaze me to look back over my blogs and realize how fast time seems to slip by. My goals change, my menus change, my health changes and slowly my weight has changed. Sometimes life causes me to back-track but I am determined to keep pushing forward in order to live the best life I can. When my daughter told me that I inspired her to eat better and begin walking, I knew every mile walked and every dessert denied was well worth it.
This month begins the "Sizzling Summer Challenge" and I am grateful to be on the LEMON team once again. Good luck to our team.

Sad times but we all must move on!

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

It has been too long since my last update. Unfortunately my niece (Cathy's Quilt) lost her battle with cancer but taught me many lessons about life in her last days. One of the most important things was a reminder that in the end all we have is our health. Because she couldn't control what happened to her, I am determined to do all I can each day to keep myself as healthy as possible. I am also determined to remain an active participant on Sparkpeople because having support is what keeps me going every day!
A big thank you to all the people on here for your encouragement and prayers. I appreciate all of you so much.

    I hope you are processing the loss well and will continue on your journey to being healthy. Perhaps you can dedicate your new healthy lifestyle to your niece who won't get the chance to be healthy again? I know you will make it because you are strong.

You will make it.

    So sorry for your loss. It is a great reminder for all of us to can take care of ourselves. Your niece could not control what happened to her, but many health issues are controllable and we should do our best to take care of our bodies. Take care!
