Hiking at Mill Creek Park
Mill Creek Park, Youngstown, OH
Just trying to stay healthy! I've been at it for a long time and am pretty successful at keeping my weight down and staying active, but I always have to find new ways to motivate myself, so here I am.
My main goal is to stay healthy in a family with a strong history of diabetes and heart disease. I want to get back to consistency with exercise and healthy eating, and to make strength training a weekly habit.
Tracking my food and exercise, trying to be as active as possible, doing different things to keep me motivated, including challenges and Spark Teams.
I'm a Christian. I love the Lord! I'm a member of a small, Fundamental Independent Baptist Church in NE Ohio.
I was an Air Force wife for 20 years... loved traveling, but now enjoy being a homebody and just taking short trips now and then.
I've lived in the Philippines, Germany, Cal., N. Hampshire, & Miss., and have now come full-circle back to Ohio where I grew up.
Good quotes seen on SP...
Don't dig your grave with your own knife and fork.
If hunger is not the problem, than eating is not the solution.
A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison.- Francis Bacon
Other quotes I like:
It doesn't matter that you have the cure, if people would rather have the disease.
To walk out of His will is to walk into nowhere. (C.S. Lewis)
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
"Salvation is wholly of the Lord. God thought it, Jesus bought it, the Spirit wrought it, the Bible taught it, old Satan fought it, but thank God, I've got it!" Lester Roloff
