Mindful living

I've been retired for almost 4 years and am using this time to develop a new life style in the areas of nutrition and exercise.

I love to travel. I lived in the Philippines for 2 years and Spain for 2 years, and have traveled through most of the US and much of Europe. I've been very lucky that I have been able to do what I love. I'm going to have to substitute teach more often to earn enough to do more traveling. Hmmmm, sounds like work to me!!! lol

Joining SP has helped motivate me and keeps me on track.

Long term I need to lose 100 lbs., but I'm focusing on the short term first! 2014 is the year that I succeed in getting where I want to be!!!!!

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog. While it has been sad to watch my friend's downward spiral, it has been an eye opener for myself and some other fellow Sparkers. I have been amazed and overwhelmed by the support I have received from fellow Spark People! Thanks again! Have an awesome day.... and do something differently today!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below

Thanks for the salad - it has become my staple for dinner. We are trying to eat our main meal at lunch and eat lighter at supper. It takes a little getting used to.

Don't worry about starting over - I do it every morning! I'm going in this morning for my routine check up and fully expect to be chastised (again) for my weight.
