Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister V�ronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems.

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem.

SparkPoints: 112,291

Fitness Minutes: 110,553

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

I hope the luncheon went well yesterday. You are really getting your steps in. Has that helped curb the eating?

Thanks for commenting on my blog. The first day the dogs came running into the room when I was getting Tony to shake, I laughed and laughed. If there is food, they are there.

GINIE, sorry about the recipe. I honestly forgot. I used the calculator and it is still not right. I keep rushing.
I did the yard it is done. Now I will have the joy of buying a few new plants. I hope our granddaughter In Plattsburgh will come for a few days. I really miss her. The one who lives with us had Spring break last week. She reads all day and we could not take her any where. DH and I had a great day out. I hope I can get him out some more. I hope you speak up to the workers. I spoke up to the plumber but I did not go to the insurance DH did not want me too. I hope I can get the SMELL out of my kitchen. Sunny weather might get it dry. Some days I just give up. HUGS Pat in Maine.
I love you, take care. Pat !!

GINIE I made it up and I made sure everything was for two people. Just multiply by three six people. I will get it all together and send it to you.
I just think what we like to eat and take some out or in. I just think it will be a handy tool emoticon emoticon

GINIE, it is nice to have grandkids around. I am missing mine. I had hoped to go to UK-- no way. I wanted to go to see a friend but the wind here is as bad as yours. Erik must like dogs I think. Do you have a dog. Is that the dog on your page. I have always liked dogs but our first born was allergic to their dander and we never got one. When he was a youngster a dog bit him and that made him fearful. He has no pleasure being around them and now there are two dogs that was to stay for two months but it is over two YEARS. I enjoy them in fact I am the person who is with them most of the time. STAY WARM GINIE, this Spring is not being kind to the Bulbs. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

(((((HUGS)))) and much (((((LOVE))))) to you and Erik. emoticon
