Anne's International Family Page

I have decorated my page to reflect our BLC 20 International theme. Our two sons both married women from other countries and had a double wedding in our home church. We had a pastor speaking both English and German, and also a guest preacher who was from Iceland, the home of one of our daughters-in-law. My husband's family immigrated from Germany in 1907 and homesteaded here where we live now. I have Native American heritage, so was descended from the first Americans. Our daughter is involved ...

Our daughter is involved with Native American studies and can read, write, and speak Nez Perce, the language of the tribe to which I belong, along with my children.

My Goals:
My goals for BLC 26 -- the next 12 weeks I hope to:
~~average 10,000 steps per day. Why? because it has been my best strategy over the years for maintaining weight and still eat enough to satisfy. :) I have joined the challenge to walk 3,650,000 steps in 2014.
~~participate in all the BLC 26 challenges. Especially the TNT which has been my weak area. [no pun intended :) ] Why? because they are effective besides being fun.
~~meditate 30 minutes each morning using passage meditation. Why? being able to focus on what is important and not dwell on the unimportant relieves stress and increases love for others.
~~eat mindfully, considering nutrients first, overall balance second, and calorie count third, and keep track of every bite. Why? Eating mindfully means no mindless eating. Tracking means you don't conveniently forget what you ate.



My Program:
I am now in the maintenance phase of my healthy lifestyle. I am at the weight that seems comfortable for me, but perhaps that might change over the winter months when I tend to gain. I will wait and see, but also be mindful of what I am eating and I will still have exercise a priority in my life.

Personal Information:
I live in rural Idaho and enjoy being outdoors (clean air!). I have been married 50 years and our 3 adult children are also married with children. We have eight grandchildren who live in New York, California, and Germany, so we travel a bit.

Other Information:
I am a retired teacher. I enjoy reading, walking, and traveling. I am active in our women's group at church. I am just learning how to do three layer appliqu� , and think I will enjoy that.

Hi Anne, Thanks for the goodie. I feel bad for making everyone sad. I've been addicted to water pills before, which is why I left. I do miss everyone already! The decision to leave broke my heart, but I had to.. On a brighter note, Spring is coming, and it's almost garden season!

Hugs,
Rel
