JOYINKY-73, having fun being me!

My focus today is on health and wellness, family, friends and spiritual growth. I've chosen to have my page reflect my life today; pictures from 10-13 years ago are quite different and are scattered through my gallery. Life is good!

Interests: I have returned to yoga classes in addition to my home practice but my main activity is still with my walking with my dog "Sugar"! She's from a rescue and has flourished since I adopted her. She's worth her weight in gold because she makes me laugh! She's also a great motivator to get out for a one to three mile walk every day. She has been a real gift to me and my health.
October 2010, we adopted Xena as a kitten; she's livened up our household considerably and keeps tabs on my indoor "spark" walks! By 2011 walking has become a primary fitness activity for me; as I entered 2012 hooping had become a close second. 2013 has been a year of major yard changes and gardening activity! 2014 a lot of energy was put into fixing up my house and adding more gardens.
Time with my family and friends and regular gym workouts in the winter months are my other primary outside activities. Maintaining my home and yard and gardening keep me busy too. Yard and gardening spring through the fall sometimes takes the place of other fitness activities. Reading, sewing and crafts when I have time; keeping busy never a problem! Finding more time sometimes is.
I just keep growing and changing in healthy ways; life is good!

I think the problem with the link may be SP's fault. I get an error trying to use the link, but it goes straight to the video if I copy/paste the link into my browser. Here is the link again if you want to try that. It's pretty awesome.

Might have to take out the space in between f and N at the end.

Wow, Joy, your land looks way bigger than 1/4 acre...but then, don't want too much to keep up with! Yes, I LOVE the GGS blogs and as a good sparkfriend told me once when I first began to be comfy enough to blog, "we BLOG for "ourselves"...and I have found it SO true....I can't tell you when I blogged Beck, how many times I have gone BACK to those Beck blogs to check on dates and such...so she was RIGHT. I thoroughly enjoy ALL your blogs...no matter what the subject is! KEEP 'em comin'!!!

Joy,

Thanks for the kick in the butt about looking like I'm on a maintenance plan rather than a weight loss plan. You made me recommit to my goal this month! Thanks.
