Loving My Life!

I am a healthy 68 yr. old woman who keeps trying to improve herself and finding sparkpeople.com has been a Godsend. I live in Northern Canada by a wonderful lake which I can see as soon as I step out the door or anywhere I walk in town. Used to always spend half the yr. in Baja but DH has had a lot of health problems so I insist we stay home till he is much better. I love to read and serve my Creator. My husband is a second marriage and he is a good father to the 7 children and 10 grandchildren ...

Where I fall down is on sweets but this site has made me more mindful of what I eat.

My Goals:
I would like to get control over what I do in my life. I want to have the time to create a healthy lifestyle no matter where I am, at home, visiting or enjoying a few hrs. of social time with or without friends.

My Program:
I will schedule a portion of my time to planning my food and exercise, doing the exercise and preparing the food while leaving enough time for optional things. This will take a lot of pre preparing while in Canada as we live far from the grocery store.

Personal Information:
My name is Gina and I live in northern Canada . I am married to Charlie and have 2 dogs Chica (poodle cross) and Otto, a Rottweiler cross. I did turn 68 this yr. and have 7 children and 10 grandchildren. I am in a BLC and am leading the pack. If I win it means about $200.



Other Information:
My favorite books are A Tale of Two Cities and The trilogy Lord of the Rings. Mostly I love my Faith and will do anything to further it. Being a Bahai is the best thing to ever happen to me and I have such great expectations of humanity. While all the old guard is slowly disintegrating a new world is rising and it will be so much better. To me Spark is part of the new system which is all about truth and reality.

My mother was from Puerto Rico....I grew up on Rice and beans.
Rarely had potatoes or pasta. Once I was on my own, I made up for lost time. At least NOW, I make a sauce that is more tomatoes and veggies, than sausage/meatballs/pork.

But starches put me to sleep...and then I wake up with cravings.
I'm not used to it anymore
