Striving for a consistent healthy lifestyle!

We are now in Florida again after being in our RV for two months, visiting family and friends back in our home state of Pennsylvania. While there, I did a lot of driving back and forth to visit my parents and went out to lunch and dinners with friends. I lost my consistent fitness routine and 10,000 step streak, as living in the RV had a lot of limitations. I ended up gaining about 8 of the 20 pounds I lost this spring and summer.

We are now in Florida again after being in our RV for two months, visiting family and friends back in our home state of Pennsylvania. While there, I did a lot of driving back and forth to visit my parents and went out to lunch and dinners with friends. I lost my consistent fitness routine and 10,000 step streak, as living in the RV had a lot of limitations. I ended up gaining about 8 of the 20 pounds I lost this spring and summer. Now that we are in our home in Florida again, I am gradually getting back into a consistent routine with my exercise, doing daily morning walks of at least three miles, as well as working out at the gym. Have to rein in the eating though, as we often eat out here in this retirement community. I am determined to get back on track to a healthy lifestyle, eating with moderation and mindfully! Again, the wealth of information on SparkPeople and the community support from the teams and friends I have made here give me the motivation to do well and reach my goals!

I am adjusting to an early retirement after teaching for 30 years. I've been married to my husband, Dave for almost 26 years, and we have a 25 yo son named Sean and two adorable and feisty Cairn terriers, Max and Sophie.

---~~~ I am Thankful for ~~~---

**The taxes I pay because it means
I am employed.
**The clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means I have enough food to eat.
**My shadow who watches me work,
because it means I am out in the sunshine
**A lawn that needs to be mowed,
windows that have to be washed
and gutters that need fixing because
it means I have a home
**The spot I have found at the end
of a parking lot, because it means
I am capable of walking.
**All the complaining I hear about
our government, because it means
we have freedom of speech.
** The lady in church who sings off-key
because it means that I can hear.
**The huge piles of laundry and ironing
because it means my loved ones are near.
**The alarm that goes off in the early
morning hours because it
means that I am alive.
